Brock Holt is still dealing with post-concussion symptoms.

Holt began taking a medication over the weekend to deal with his headaches, so the hope is that he'll see some progress soon. Still, there's no clear timetable for him to begin a minor league rehab assignment. "I don’t know, it’s hard to say," said Holt. "I wish I could. It’s been frustrating for me. Some days I feel good. Some days I won’t feel as good." Holt has been sidelined since May 18.

The Red Sox hope Brock Holt (concussion) will be ready to begin a rehab assignment later this week.

Holt has been taking medication, which has helped with his concussion symptoms. He's been out of action since mid-May.

Brock Holt (concussion) has not been cleared for a rehab assignment.

Holt participated in batting practice on Tuesday, but he still has work to do before he is ready to return to the Red Sox. He was initially placed on the 7-day concussion list on May 19 before being moved over to the 15-day disabled list at the beginning of June.

Brock Holt (concussion) took batting practice on Tuesday.

It was his first time taking BP since being placed on the disabled list last month. Holt has been taking fly balls in the outfield since Monday. Holt said he's "still not there yet," so there's no timetable for his return. Manager John Farrell said Holt will need to go on a rehab assignment before he's activated. The team is being extra-cautious with Holt, who has suffered two concussions over his last three seasons.
Jun 2 - 4:21 PM

Red Sox transferred INF/OF Brock Holt from the 7-day disabled list to the 15-day disabled list.

Holt landed on the 7-day concussion DL on May 19 and is now being eased back into baseball activities. He could need another couple weeks of rest and rehab.
Jun 2 - 12:16 PM

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.

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.
