Red Sox manager John Farrell said that Brock Holt (concussion) will begin his rehab work with "general conditioning."
Per Farrell, Holt underwent a "battery of tests" when he visited concussion specialist Dr. Mickey Collins in Pittsburgh on Tuesday. The 27-year-old outfielder was actually hoping to be activated from the 7-day concussion disabled list on Wednesday, but the Red Sox are taking no chances here. Somewhat distressing, he initially suffered the head injury on May 10, but it was not diagnosed for another week. May 25 - 4:51 PM

Brock Holt will visit a concussion specialist on Tuesday.

He's going to Pittsburgh, where he'll be looked at by Dr. Mickey Collins. The two have a history together as Holt sought Collins' help when he suffered his first concussion in 2014. Holt's injury actually occurred against Oakland on May 10 but he wasn't diagnosed for another week. He's hoping to be back Wednesday when he's first eligible to come off the disabled list, though that might not be realistic.
May 21 - 4:39 PM

Red Sox placed INF/OF Brock Holt on the 7-day concussion disabled list, retroactive to May 19.

It's unclear when Holt suffered the concussion, but the club is calling it a mild one, for what it's worth, so perhaps he won't be sidelined long. Chris Young figures to pick up some extra playing time in left field while Holt is on the shelf, although Blake Swihart has been playing some left field at Triple-A Pawtucket and he was recalled Friday.
May 20 - 12:37 PM

Brock Holt went 0-for-4 in the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader and is down to .239/.310/.354 in 113 at-bats this season.

Chris Young seems to be finding his swing, so the Red Sox could give him more playing time over Holt in left field. Calling up Rusney Castillo probably isn't an option; he's hitting .275/.328/.330 in Triple-A. Blake Swihart might be a factor later, but not yet.
May 19 - 12:00 AM

Brock Holt is not in Tuesday's lineup against the Athletics.

He's sitting against left-hander Sean Manaea. Chris Young will start in left field and bat fifth, so he makes for an interesting DFS play.
May 10 - 3:09 PM

Brock Holt is not in the lineup for Wednesday's contest with the White Sox.

Holt will sit against opposing southpaw starter Carlos Rodon. In his place, Chris Young earns a start in left field. Young is hitting sixth. This is nothing new for Holt. He has seen just nine at-bats all season against left-handed pitchers.
May 4 - 4:35 PM

Brock Holt is not in Thursday's lineup against the Braves.

Chris Young will make the start in left field despite right-hander Jhoulys Chacin on the mound. Holt is batting just .188/.293/.229 over his last 14 games.
Apr 28 - 4:23 PM

Brock Holt made his season debut at shortstop after replacing an injured Xander Bogaerts in Wednesday's game.

If this gives Holt shortstop eligibility in your league, he just got a whole lot more valuable. Unfortunately, it'll probably be quite a while before he gets five-game eligibility at shortstop, especially with Bogaerts expected back in a day or two.
Apr 21 - 12:21 AM

Brock Holt is starting in left field and batting seventh on Wednesday against the Rays.

It's his first time in the starting lineup in three days, mostly because the opposition was throwing left-handed starters. Holt has hit .267/.405/.533 over his first 30 at-bats this season for Boston.
Apr 20 - 3:16 PM

Brock Holt is not in the starting lineup Tuesday against the Rays.

This is his third straight day out of the lineup, but it's not completely unexpected Tuesday with southpaw Drew Smyly on the hill. Chris Young will start in left field and bat seventh.
Apr 19 - 3:03 PM

Brock Holt (foot) is back in the Red Sox starting lineup Monday afternoon against the Orioles.

Holt was held out of action on Sunday after fouling a ball off his foot on Saturday. X-rays came back negative and he is batting seventh Monday versus Orioles right-hander Yovani Gallardo. Rusney Castillo is back on the bench. It's actually the same starting lineup the Red Sox used on Opening Day in Cleveland.
Apr 11 - 10:03 AM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Sunday that Brock Holt will be available for the team's home opener against the Orioles on Monday.

Holt sat out Sunday's contest and was unavailable to pinch hit after fouling a ball off his foot during Saturday's game. X-rays came back negative though and it sounds as though the Red Sox super utility player will be on the field on Monday.
Apr 10 - 4:10 PM

Brock Holt slugged his first grand slam and knocked in a career-high five runs on Friday’s win over the Blue Jays.

After hitting an RBI double in the second inning, Holt connected for a grand slam off Jesse Chavez in the sixth. The blast brought the Red Sox within one run and they took the lead one inning later. Holt already has two home runs through three games this season after hitting only two in 129 games last season. We’re not expecting this sort of thump on a regular basis, but Holt’s multi-position eligibility should come in handy for fantasy owners as Boston's primary left fielder.
Apr 8 - 11:46 PM

Brock Holt will start in left field for Tuesday's season opener against the Indians.

It's Take Two for the Indians and Red Sox, as Monday's scheduled opener was pushed back a day due to inclement weather. Rusney Castillo failed to impress this spring, so Holt is expected to be the primary left fielder against right-handed starters. The full Boston lineup against Indians ace Corey Kluber: Mookie Betts RF, Dustin Pedroia 2B, Xander Bogaerts SS, David Ortiz DH, Hanley Ramirez 1B, Travis Shaw 3B, Holt LF, Blake Swihart C, Jackie Bradley CF. David Price will make his debut for the Red Sox.
Apr 5 - 9:44 AM

Brock Holt will begin the season as the Red Sox primary left fielder against right-handers.

The Red Sox were hoping that Rusney Castillo would force their hand, but he's batting just .213/.275/.234 this spring while Holt has swung the bat well and has proven to be a valuable contributor over the past couple of seasons. Now Castillo is an expensive bench player. With Holt's multi-position eligibility, he could be a useful player to have around in mixed fantasy leagues.
