Latest Update Red Sox have not shown interest in trading Brock Holt Thu Dec, 18, 11:18 AM
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.
Despite the array of moves the Red Sox have made during the offseason, Holt will stay put this year. Obviously some teams are going to be interested in acquiring the multi-talented, versatile fielder, but credit the Sox for not putting all their eggs into the baskets of an injury-prone Hanley Ramirez and an overweight Pablo Sandoval. Holt should at least make the club as a utility player and he should be the first in line to take over a job if an injury arises anywhere but on the mound or behind the plate. He'll open the year as the ultimate plug-and-play guy and could easily develop into something more. Analyst: Howard Bender
Holt emerged as a versatile player for the Red Sox last year, but he has very little power and minimal speed. He always hit for a high average in the minor leagues, but he's probably a better suited for a utility role rather than an everyday job. He isn't a player that I would be actively targeting next season.Analyst: David Kerr
What a rough road it was for Holt who burst onto the scene last year and proved to be one of Boston's biggest and most-versatile assets. He slashed .281/.331/.381 over 106 games with four home runs, 29 RBI and 12 stolen bases and while the raw numbers aren't eye-popping, it was the fact that he played the second base, shortstop, third base and in the outfield making him one of the best plug-and-play guys out there. Depending on how free agency shakes out for the Red Sox this winter, Holt could end up as their primary utility player in 2015.Analyst: Howard Bender
Holt was down for a significant period of time and things were just not looking better.Perhaps the specialist will find the reason behind the injury's longevity. Stay tuned for additional updates.Analyst: Howard Bender
