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 receives rare night off


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

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
(7/21/2014) 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.


Brock Holt homers, cranks out five hits in win over Houston


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(7/13/2014) Red Sox infielder Brock Holt cranked out a career-high five hits in an 11-0 win over the Astros in Houston.

Holt launched a solo home run in the opening frame and added four hits. He finished 5 for 6 with two runs scored and one RBI. He owns a .327/.371/.463 slash line with three homers and 21 RBI in 257 at-bats.

Brock Holt scores twice in blowout loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(7/3/2014) Red Sox infielder Brock Holt reached base three times out of the leadoff spot Wednesday, in a 16-9 loss to the Cubs.

Though he struck out twice, Holt managed to go 3 for 6 anyways, with three singles. He scored twice in the game, bringing his total to 30 runs scored in 51 games.

Holt is hitting .322/.367/.441 in 211 at-bats with the Red Sox. 


Hitters to start in Week 14


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/29/2014) Looking for a sleeper for Fantasy Week 14 (June 30-July 6)? Mike Zunino, Eric Hosmer, Neil Walker, Brock Holt, Brad Miller and Steve Pearce might just fit the bill.

Find out why in the latest Start and Sit Hitters.


Brock Holt raking from leadoff spot


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2014) Since he was moved to the leadoff spot May 23, Red Sox infielder/outfielder Brock Holt leads the major leagues with 43 hits, notes WEEI.com. Holt's .326 average overall also leads all rookies with at least 100 plate appearances.

Holt went 4 for 9 with a walk and a run scored in two weekend games against the Athletics.


Brock Holt just a short-term Fantasy option


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/12/2014) With a 0-for-4 performance Wednesday at Baltimore, Red Sox infielder/outfielder Brock Holt saw his hitting streak end at 10 games. Holt hit .413 (19 for 46) with one triple, one home run, four doubles and six RBI in that span.

Holt has been a surprising Fantasy contributor over the last few weeks, as he's averaged 21 Fantasy points over the last three scoring periods. But as I wrote in this week's Waiver Wire column, I'm only considering Holt a stopgap Fantasy option since he doesn't have the track record of being a top offensive producer.

Holt has a .307 average and .372 on-base percentage in his career in the minors, but he doesn't have much home run power and can't be counted on to be a big-time RBI contributor. He wasn't even a great stolen-base threat in the minors.

As long as you don't have to make a great investment in Holt and are willing to bench or cut him when his production tails off, then he's worth the short-term add.


Brock Holt cranks out four hits in win over Tigers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/9/2014) Red Sox infielder Brock Holt enjoyed a productive performance at the plate Sunday night against the Tigers, cranking out four hits in his team's 5-3 victory.
