The Boston Red Sox have recalled INF Brock Holt from Triple-A Pawtucket.
Fantasy Tip: Holt is replacing injured 3B Will Middlebrooks (calf) on the 25-man roster, but INF Jonathan Herrera is expected to see most of the action at third base, so Holt has no fantasy value. Manager John Farrell said Holt was recalled instead of top prospect 3B Garin Cecchini because he is still developing. Cecchini is batting .556 (5-for-9) at Pawtucket after hitting .322 with 33 doubles in the minors last season.
