Red Sox shortstop Xander Bogaerts out of the lineup Tuesday


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com

In his place will be Brock Holt, making his second start of the season. Bogaerts has started all seven games for Boston so far this season at shortstop and is likely getting a day of rest. He is a career .277 hitter against right handers.

Also getting the day of his Shane Victorino, as Daniel Nava will replace him in right field and bat seventh. Nava is hitting .364 in 11 at-bats to start the year.

The Red Sox are currently the favorites (-124) over the Nationals.


CF Brock Holt leads off, delivers four hits in Red Sox victory


by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer
(4/11/2015) Brock Holt set the table for the Red Sox Saturday, leading off and getting for four hits in the team's win.

Holt, who had batted just once this season, delivered three singles and then a three-run double in the eighth inning.

"He really gave us a shot in the arm," Red Sox manager John Farrell said.

"I'm probably not going to do that every time I go in there, but it's nice to get off on a good foot, a good start," said Holt to MLB.com. "Getting the win, that's the biggest thing."


Red Sox's Mookie Betts, Hanley Ramirez out of lineup Saturday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Brock Holt draws the start in center field and will lead off for the Red Sox Saturday, while Allen Craig will start in right field, with Daniel Nava moving to left. The team is sticking with its normal starters in the infield.


Red Sox's Brock Holt ready to show versatility again in 2015


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(2/25/2015) Red Sox infielder/outfielder Brock Holt, who started seven different positions in 2014, told reporters he's ready to prove he's just as versatile as he was last season, according to WEEI.com on Wednesday.

Holt indicated that he expects to be mostly used in the infield, despite the addition of Pablo Sandoval and Hanley Ramirez in the offseason and the emergence of Mookie Betts.

"I think kind of similar spot as last year, move around, give guys days off when they need them but be ready to play all the time," Holt said. "I'm looking forward to the opportunity to do that again and it's something I enjoyed last year and something I'm looking forward to doing again.

The majority of my [work] is probably going to be in the infield and then I'll definitely go out in the outfield and do some stuff," Holt said. "During [batting practice] it's easy to go out there and get some reads during BP, too. I'll probably spend most of my time in the infield but move around, depending on how I feel and how the day is going, move to do some outfield."

Hitters to sit in Week 22


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/22/2014) So you're thinking of starting Mike Zunino, Allen Craig, Neil Walker, Casey McGehee, Brock Holt or Josh Hamilton in Fantasy Week 22 (Aug. 25-31)? That may not be such a great idea.

Check out the latest Start and Sit Hitters to find out why.


Brock Holt the king of versatility


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/18/2014) 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
(7/24/2014) 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 sparking the Red Sox


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(7/21/2014) 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
(7/14/2014) 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.
