Description: Boston utilityman Brock Holt is still dealing with an illness as well as a sore neck and is questionable for Wednesday's game against Baltimore. The realistic hope is he can be ready for the weekend.
Insight: He's batted .281 with four homers, 29 RBI, 68 runs, 12 steals and an .711 OPS in 449 at-bats. His position flexibility (1B, 2B, SS, 3B, OF) makes him a valuable fantasy option.

Description: Boston utilityman Brock Holt is dealing with an illness that's going around the Boston clubhouse and is questionable for Tuesday's game against Baltimore.
Insight: Holt has been a jack of all trades this season playing at first, second, short, third and the outfield. He's batted .281 with four homers, 29 RBI, 68 runs, 12 steals and an .711 OPS in 449 at-bats. His position flexibility makes him a valuable fantasy option.

Description: Boston utilityman Brock Holt went 5-for-6 with a homer and two runs Sunday at Houston.
Insight: Holt played second base for the first time this season on Sunday and now has played every position except pitcher and catcher in 2014. He's batted .327 with 25 extra-base hits (3 HR), 21 RBI, 37 runs, six steals and an .834 OPS in 257 at-bats.

Description: Boston outfielder Brock Holt smashed three hits in Saturday's loss to Oakland.
Insight: Holt (.329, 1 HR, 15 RBI) broke up Jesse Chavez's no-hit bid in the sixth inning. He also made an unbelievable diving catch in right field to rob Alberto Callaspo of a base hit. Holt is now hitting .353 this month with six RBI.
Hot6/1/2014 8:49:00 PM
Description: Red Sox corner infielder Brock Holt ripped four hits Sunday in a win against Tampa Bay.
Insight: All four were doubles, making him the first Red Sox player to double four times in a game since Victor Martinez in 2010. Holt (.337, 1 HR, 11 RBI) is quickly becoming a fan favorite and should remain in the lineup at least until Mike Napoli returns from the DL.

Description: Red Sox third baseman Brock Holt has been working in the outfield according to Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal.
Insight: Holt (.299, 0 HR, 7 RBI) has done a nice job in place of Will Middlebrooks and is certainly a better offensive player than slumping corner outfielder Grady Sizemore. Adding outfield eligibility would help Holt's fantasy value.
5/29/2014 10:19:00 PM
Description: Boston third baseman Brock Holt finished with three hits Thursday in a walkoff win over the Braves.
Insight: That raises his season average to .315. Holt has done a nice job filling in for Will Middlebrooks at third base the past couple weeks. Unfortunately, he'll probably be sent back to Triple-A when Stephen Drew returns to the majors next month.
5/23/2014 3:20:00 PM
Description: Red Sox infielders Brock Holt and Xander Bogaerts will bat at the top of the order on Friday night as the team tries something new to break up their seven-game losing streak.
Insight: Holt (.333, 0 HR, 5 RBI) normally bats near the bottom of the Red Sox order while Bogaerts has a little more experience in the No. 2 hole. If they can get on, it could be very good for their fantasy value with Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz to knock them in.
4/21/2014 9:12:00 AM
Description: Red Sox infielder Brock Holt will lead off for the first time this season.
Insight: Holt (.232, 0 HR, 2 RBI) normally bats near the bottom of the Red Sox order. Center fielder Grady Sizemore, who led off Sunday night, gets the day off.
7/31/2013 7:48:00 PM
Description: The Red Sox have called up Triple-A infielder Brock Holt to play third base.
Insight: Jose Iglesias was shipped to the Tigers Tuesday night as part of the Jake Peavy trade, leaving the Red Sox with a hole at third base. Holt was hitting .264 with Triple-A Pawtucket at the time of his call-up. Despite his struggles earlier in the season, the Sox are still hoping Will Middlebrooks can be the team's third baseman of the future. Holt is a stop gap and not someone fantasy owners can rely on.
