Latest Update Brock Holt will have a chance to play some second base Sat Aug, 30, 10:44 PM
Is a scrappy hitter with positional versatility and a pretty good glove no matter where he lines up. Can draw walks and make solid contact on a consistent basis.
Flaws: : Doesn't have enough pop in his bat to be a big run-producer in Major League Baseball. Also, he could stand to settle into one position at the highest level.
If Pedroia is out for an extended period of time, Holt may be able to get second base eligibility in fantasy, which would boost his value a bit. Thanks to his flexibility and the recent departure of Kelly Johnson, Holt should continue to get decent playing time.Analyst: Ben Diamond
Holt continues to show why he belongs on the big league roster. For the season, he's slashing .290/.342/.393 with three home runs and eight steals (ten attempts). He plays a number of positions, and while he's not an ideal fit as a first-division regular, he should remain on the Red Sox's 25-man roster in 2015 as a super-utility man and injury fill-in.

With Will Middlebrooks (hamstring) able to return to the lineup Friday, it's a good opportunity to throw Holt an extra day of rest, especially with Felix Hernandez on the mound for the Mariners. Holt will return to the lineup over the weekend.Analyst: Howard Bender
Holt is now riding a eight-game hitting streak, with Thursday's game being his second multi-hit performance in that stretch. Through 360 at-bats Holt is now slashing .297/.346/.411 with three home runs, 24 RBI and 52 runs scored as he continues to get the job done out of the leadoff position. As long as he continues to get on base at a high clip, at the very least he will be a solid contributor in both batting average and runs scored down the stretch. Analyst: Matthew Beck
