Brock Holt the king of versatility
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/18/14) It kind of flew under the radar in Fantasy, but when Brock Holt started at shortstop Thursday against the Astros, he did more than just give rookie Xander Bogaerts a day off. He also became eligible at the position in standard CBSSports.com leagues, pulling off the rare feat of quintuple eligibility.

You're now able to use him at -- count them with me -- first base, second base, third base, shortstop and the outfield, though if you start him anywhere but shortstop, you're a real sucker -- a sucker, I tell you!

OK, not really. You probably just have a ton of infield depth. But no doubt, shortstop is where he's most valuable. It's by far the weakest position in Fantasy, and at the position, he stacks up with just about anybody.

No, really. He's been an everyday player, more or less, since May 17, and during that time, he ranks seventh among shortstops in Head-to-Head points leagues and ninth in Rotisserie. That's compared to 12th and 13th among third basemen.

Granted, much of that production is front-loaded, but he's still scoring a bunch of runs batting leadoff for the Red Sox. And if you have a weakness anywhere on the infield, he's now capable of filling it. That should apply to just about all Fantasy owners.

Red Sox praise Brock Holt for versatility
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/24/14) Red Sox infielder/outfielder Brock Holt made his first start at second base Thursday at Toronto, becoming the first player in franchise history to start at every position besides pitcher and catcher.

Though, manager John Farrell said he has no plans to give Holt a start behind the plate any time soon.

"He's done a great job, there's no doubt," Farrell said, per MLB.com. "We like to think that because of injuries, it's opened up and created some opportunities for him. If we had our choice, we would've liked to avoid all that. ... But in light of what's taken place this year, it's one of the better stories. [He's] a guy we can plan around in a number of ways as we go forward."

Brock Holt receives rare night off
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/23/14) Red Sox all-purpose standout Brock Holt is out of the lineup Wednesday in Toronto for the first time in two months. He is coming off an 0-for-4 effort that ended a seven-game hitting streak.

Holt has been lights-out this season with a stat line of .321/.366/.450 and 40 runs scored.

Brock Holt sparking the Red Sox
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/21/14) Red Sox leadoff hitter Brock Holt owns a six-game hitting streak after going 2 for 5 with a run scored Sunday. He's 14 for 28 (.500) with two walks and five runs scored during the streak and has helped Boston win seven of its last eight games.

Against the Royals over the weekend, Holt played right field, center field, second base, third base and shortstop. He's batting .326/.371/.463 in 270 at-bats.

Three reasons to buy into Brock Holt
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(7/14/14) I've been taking a wait-and-see approach to Brock Holt this season. In fact, I've been downright skeptical of his high batting average and run-scoring prowess, expecting that it's only a matter of time before he gets replaced in the Red Sox's lineup.

Holt has been doing this long enough and well enough that I'm finally becoming a believer. I have moved him up to 16th in my third base rankings in both Head-to-Head and Rotisserie formats for three reasons.

First, Holt has been boosting his batting average with infield hits. He has racked up 14 of them in just 257 plate appearances, so he is leveraging his speed into a .292 batting average on ground balls. With that high of a rate of infield hits, he can sustain something close to what he has already done on grounders.

Second, playing home games at Fenway Park can only help his batting average. The notorious doubles park usually provides a boost to hitters' BABIPs, particularly on flyballs. Holt is unlikely to sustain a .195 flyball BABIP, but it won't regress as much as it would if he played home games elsewhere.

Finally, Holt has shown the ability to strike out less often than he has so far. He has struck out in 18.3 percent of his plate appearances, but in the minors, his rates have typically been in the lower-to-mid teens. So even if Holt's infield hits dry up or his BABIP falls, he has a skill to fall back on that can help him to sustain his batting average and run production.
