BROCK HOLT RUMORS & GOSSIP

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...

Larry Lucchino: Red Sox, Jon Lester to talk contract after season

Boston Red Sox president Larry Lucchino said Thursday on WEEI’s “Dennis & Callahan” that contract talks with Jon Lester have been put on hold until the offseason. “[Ben Cherington] may still have some continuing discussion with [agent] Seth[Levinson] on other issues or other matters, but certainly the negotiation, the parties have agreed to let’s step away and do this...

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. Manager John Farrell justified the decision thusly, "We never like to take any player out that’s doing extremely well. And...

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 Unaware He’s Close To Qualifying For Batting Title Race (Video)

Brock Holt has been on a tear all season long for the Boston Red Sox, but because he joined the team with the season already underway, he still hasn’t accumulated enough plate appearances to qualify for the batting title race. His .326 average would put him fifth in the American League, just eight percentage points behind leader Jose Altuve of the Houston Astros. That said, he’s...

Brock Holt Slams Into Wall To Make Catch In Red Sox’s Big Win (Video)

A 13-run lead isn’t going to prevent Brock Holt from nearly running through a wall. Holt made a tremendous leaping catch Monday in the fifth inning of the Boston Red Sox’s 14-1 win over the Toronto Blue Jays at Rogers Centre. The game already was well in hand, but Holt, whose motor simply doesn’t stop, wasn’t prepared to take his foot off the gas. “I’m not going to let...

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, Red Sox Look To Stay Hot As Open Series With Blue Jays

Boston Red Sox utility man Brock Holt just continues to get it done as arguably the club’s most consistent player this season. The Sox have started to heat up as a team in the last week or so, though, and they’ll try to extend their winning streak to five games on Monday night against the Toronto Blue Jays. Holt continues to be the catalyst for the Sox atop the batting order...

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...
