Brock Holt has been robbing major league hitters all season. He received a taste of his own medicine Tuesday. Holt tattooed a fly ball back toward the right field wall in the second inning of the Boston Red Sox’s game against the Los Angeles Angels at Fenway Park. The deep drive looked destined to land in the Angels’ bullpen, but Kole Calhoun had other plans. Calhoun raced back...

Holt is on a 12-game hitting streak as of Tuesday, the longest one by any Red Sox player this season, where he’s hitting .302 with 11 runs. He has filled the void in the leadoff spot left by center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury,...

Brock Holt, Robbie Grossman Were Roommates During Time In Pittsburgh (Video)

With the Houston Astros in Boston for a four-game series against the Red Sox, a reunion of sorts is taking place at Fenway Park. Red Sox utility man Brock Holt and Astros outfielder Robbie Grossman were roommates when they both played for the Pittsburgh Pirates’s Double-A affiliate Altoona Curve in 2012.

Boston Red Sox sit Brock Holt for first time since May

On Wednesday night, the Boston Red Sox sat Brock Holt for the first time since May 15th. Holt had just snapped a seven game hit streak the night before and with Shane Victorino back on the team, Holt isn’t going to be a guarantee in the lineup every night. Holt usually takes everybody else’s days off, filling in where he is needed, so it makes sense he played in so many games...

Nation Is Outraged As Brock Holt Sits Out

(FenwayNation Photo)After 59 straight starts, Brock 'Babe' Holt is being "rested" tonight—just when the Rd Sox desperately need his juice at the top of the lineup to win tonight's critical Game 3 of the make-or-break road trip.

Expedia’s New Ad Featuring Red Sox Rookie Brock Holt

Boston Red Sox rookie Brock Holt made a ridiculous jumping catch Monday night against Toronto Blue Jays 1st baseman, Dan Johnson. OK, so this isn’t an actual Expedia advertisement, yet, but it should be. Along with Jackie Bradley Jr. making a diving catch in front of the JetBlue sign, the Red Sox rookies are proving themselves to be quite marketable to companies with customers...

Brock Holt Says “Screw You, Gravity!”

As we speak, or type, the Red Sox are kicking the tar out of the Toronto Blue Jays. But in an evening of amazing highlights, none may loom larger than this phenomenal catch made by Brock Holt on a Dan Johnson fly ball in the bottom of the fifth. Remember, this is a guy who is relatively new to playing the outfield, and here he is, scampering up the wall like he owns the motherf#...

WATCH: Boston's Brock Holt makes unreal catch

The Red Sox were matching outs with runs this Monday night in Toronto, playing 14 runs before the fifth inning was even over. But Brock Holt added insult to injury with this absolutely incredible catch of a Dan Johnson fly ball, showing that when it rains (even in a dome) it pours.

Brock Holt Should Remain Red Sox Shortstop

The Boston Red Sox still believe they are in the hunt. At 9.5 games out of the American League East, they still have a shot, albeit an outside one. Boston’s offense is last in the American League in runs and they will need to pick up the pace to have any chance. The Red Sox production from outfielders is last in the American League. The outfield in 2014 has included Daniel Nava...
