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.

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

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.

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.
