Brock Holt (oblique) went hitless in three at-bats Wednesday in his return to the Red Sox lineup.
It was the first game in five days for Holt, who has been battling oblique tightness. He might be looking at a bigger workload for the stretch run with starting left fielder Andrew Benintendi (knee, ankle) possibly done for the season. Chris Young will also draw starts in left, but he struggles against right-handed pitching. Aug 25 - 8:45 AM

Brock Holt (oblique) is not in the Red Sox lineup Saturday against the Tigers.

Holt has been battling oblique tightness for a few days now and was unable to finish Friday night's game. Despite the injury, Holt should be available off the bench on Saturday. Holt opened the year as Boston's starting left fielder but was moved to a utility role when the Red Sox called up top prospect Andrew Benintendi.

Brock Holt was forced to leave Friday's game against the Tigers with left oblique soreness.

Red Sox manager John Farrell indicated that Holt only feels the injury when he throws. It wouldn't be surprising to see him rest on Saturday as a precautionary measure, though he could be available as a pinch hitter or runner off of the bench.

Brock Holt went 3-for-3 with a double as the Red Sox's third baseman on Wednesday.

Shaw hadn't started at third base all season until Aug. 7. Now he's done so on back-to-back days, in large part because Hanley Ramirez is away and Travis Shaw is playing first. Still, Holt makes more sense at third than Aaron Hill against a left-hander and there's a decent chance he'll outproduce Shaw the rest of the way. He should remain a factor at the hot corner.

Brock Holt hit a two-run home run and scored three times as the Red Sox doubled up the Diamondbacks 6-3 on Saturday.

Holt hit the two-run shot off Diamondbacks starter Archie Bradley in the sixth inning. It was his sixth homer of the year. Holt opened the year as a starter but a concussion and some woes at the plate have moved some others ahead of him on the depth chart. The 28-year-old is hitting .251/.323/.389 in 65 games overall.
Aug 13 - 11:44 PM

Brock Holt hit a go-ahead RBI single in the 11th inning of Thursday's 3-2 win over the Mariners.

Holt's single up the middle just barely made it through the infield, but it did the job nonetheless, scoring Travis Shaw to snap a 2-2 tie. Brad Ziegler subsequently closed out the 3-2 victory, albeit with a few hiccups in the bottom of the 11th. For the season, Holt holds a .259/.330/.395 triple-slash and has socked five homers to pair with 26 RBI over 185 at-bats.

Brock Holt is not in the Red Sox lineup Saturday against the Yankees.

The Red Sox are stacking their lineup with right-handers against lefty CC Sabathia. Bryce Brentz will take over in left field and bat eighth. Holt went 1-for-3 Friday in his return from a sprained ankle. He should be back in the lineup Sunday night against Masahiro Tanaka.
Jul 16 - 12:54 PM

Brock Holt (ankle) returned to the Red Sox lineup on Friday, going 1-for-3 plus a walk in a victory over the Yankees.

Holt sprained his ankle a week ago and missed the final two games before the All-Star break, but it appears the long layoff cured what ailed him. He's now hitting .259/.331/.400 with four homers and 22 RBI in 155 plate appearances on the season.
Jul 16 - 9:07 AM

Brock Holt (ankle) said he's feeling a lot better and could return to the lineup on Sunday.

Holt sprained his ankle in Friday night's game but the injury was never thought to be serious and now it looks like he could be back for Sunday's series finale. The Red Sox have used Holt as a utility player in the past but he's mostly stuck to left field this year.
Jul 9 - 8:44 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Saturday that Brock Holt (ankle) should avoid a trip to the disabled list.

He won't, however, return to action before the All-Star break. He'll take the next couple of days off to get healthy and hopefully return to game action as the Red Sox kick off the second half on Friday.
Jul 9 - 1:51 PM

Brock Holt was diagnosed with a Grade 1 ankle sprain and will be re-evaluated on Saturday.

He's in a walking boot as a precautionary measure, and the club will know more on his status on Saturday. Generally, Grade 1 sprains do lead to a stint on the disabled list, through with the All-Star break coming up it's hard to speculate on what exactly the Red Sox will opt to do.
Jul 8 - 10:53 PM

Brock Holt was forced to leave Friday's game against the Rays with an apparent ankle injury.

Holt slid hard into Logan Forsythe at second base and looked as if he jammed his ankle in the process. He'll presumably head for X-rays to see if there's any structural damage. Expect an update from the Red Sox on his status shortly. Bryce Brentz replaced him in the Red Sox lineup.
Jul 8 - 8:31 PM

Brock Holt (concussion) went 2-for-4 with an RBI and two runs scored in his return from the disabled list Friday versus the Angels.

Both of his hits were doubles. Holt ended up missing about five weeks with concussion symptoms, but he should see a lot of time in left field now that he’s back in action. He doesn’t offer a lot of upside in fantasy leagues, but his multi-position eligibility can help some rosters.
Jul 2 - 12:56 AM

Red Sox activated INF/OF Brock Holt from the 15-day disabled list.

The Red Sox have said that Holt is still dealing with some symptoms of a concussion, but they apparently think it's something he'll be able to play through. He should get regular time in left field.
Jul 1 - 2:27 PM

Brock Holt is still dealing with some symptoms from his concussion.

Holt began a minor league rehab assignment last week and concussion specialist Micky Collins thinks that he could be able to push through his current symptoms. The Red Sox expect Holt to be activated on Friday if all goes well.
