The Boston Red Sox are calling up 3B Brock Holt from the minors Friday, April 18.
Fantasy Tip: Holt could receive decent playing time at the hot corner until Will Middlebrooks (calf) returns from the DL. Jonathan Herrera may split at-bats with Holt.

The Boston Red Sox optioned 3B Brock Holt to Triple-A Pawtucket Monday, April 7, to make room on the roster for 3B Ryan Roberts. Roberts presents insurance at third base with 3B Will Middlebrooks (calf) on the disabled list. 3B Jonathan Herrera started the last two games at third base.

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.

The Boston Red Sox are seeking an infielder who can play shortstop and third base. INF Brock Holt played 26 games with the team last season, and he is a candidate to fill the void. The team also remains in touch with veteran INF John McDonald, who was a late-season addition in 2013. McDonald also might be a candidate for a coaching position in the organizations.

Boston Red Sox INF Brock Holt and C Ryan Lavarnway will be optioned to Triple-A Pawtucket Monday, Aug. 19, to make room on the roster for SS Xander Bogaerts and C David Ross (concussion), who will be activated from the disabled list. Also, P Rubby De La Rosa will be sent to Pawtucket.
Fantasy Tip: Bogaerts should be playing regularly either at shortstop or third base and is worth owning in mostly all formats.

Boston Red Sox 3B Brock Holt and 1B Brandon Snyder are a combined 5-for-33 (.151) with four runs, three RBIs and two extra-base hits since the team traded 3B Jose Iglesias to the Detroit Tigers. It's unclear if the team thinks SS Xander Bogaerts can make the transition to third base or if they'd prefer to bring 3B Will Middlebrooks back.
Fantasy Tip: Based on what the Red Sox have said, it seems more likely that they'll opt for Bogaerts over Middlebrooks, but there's no timetable for when that might happen. Speculate now and add Bogaerts in deep mixed leagues.

Boston Red Sox manager John Farrell said SS Xander Bogaerts is "in the discussion" to be called up to help out at third base, but a move to bring him up isn't imminent.
Fantasy Tip: Right now, some combination of Brandon Snyder and Brock Holt will man the hot corner after Jose Iglesias was traded. Will Middlebrooks still needs to work down on the farm, and while Bogaerts is the most attractive option right now, the Red Sox won't rush him. You should be prepared to add him in deep mixed leagues, though, if he's brought up. Bogaerts should already be owned in keeper and AL-only formats.
