Latest Update Brock Holt is playing secondbase Thursday Thu Jul, 24, 11:12 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.
If your league has a low game-minimum for eligibility, then Holt is a dream fantasy player. Not only would he qualify everywhere, but he's also posted quality numbers as well. Continue to use him as it doesn't appear that he is slowing down from his current pace.Analyst: Howard Bender
After 59-straight games, Holt is finally getting a much-needed and well-deserved day off. He's been a revelation for both the Red Sox and fantasy owners and should be owned in nearly every format he is available as the position eligibility is crazy good. Jackie Bradley is in the lineup in center while all the other usual suspects are exactly where they have been playing most of the time.Analyst: Howard Bender
Three-straight multi-hit games, his third home run of the season and a .327 average? What's not to love here? Even better is the fact that manager John Farrell is a huge fan and is doing everything he can to keep Holt's bat in the lineup. Even when the day does come that Shane Victorino returns, if Holt continues to swing a hot bat, he's going to be playing. Be careful with him moving forward as things could change on a dime, but given his ability to play all around the field, we think he's going to keep seeing at-bats.Analyst: Howard Bender
Holt came into Friday's game having batted leadoff in each of the Red Sox last 46 games beginning on May 23rd ranking 3rd in MLB in hits (61), 2nd in the AL in doubles (15), and tied for 7th in the AL in runs scored (29) during that span. He added to those numbers after Friday's performance atop the order and has now reached base in 41 of 48 starts hitting leadoff overall this season with a .308 AVG (65-for-211).Analyst: Michael Pichan
