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.
 
5/31/2014 4:54:00 PM
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.
