Red Sox | Four-hit night for Brock Holt

Thu, 02 Jul 2015 20:59:09 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt went 4-for-6 with a run scored and a steal in a 12-6 win over the Toronto Blue Jays Thursday, July 2.

Fantasy Tip: The four hits doubled his total from the previous eight games, and while the regular playing time he is receiving in the wake of a Dustin Pedroia injury could be taking a bit of a toll, Holt ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is still worth a look as a mid-priced option at FantasyScore against solid matchups.

Red Sox | Brock Holt has cooled off

Wed, 01 Jul 2015 10:28:55 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt, who is taking the day off Wednesday, July 1, has just four hits in his last 32 at-bats (.125). He had played every inning of every game since June 5 and also collided with Toronto Blue Jays 2B Devon Travis Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Holt ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) is still hitting .288 (59-for-205) despite his recent cold stretch, and he'll continue to see consistent playing time as long as Dustin Pedroia is on the DL. He'll continue to have short-term value in most fantasy formats, including on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Mike Napoli benched Wednesday

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 12:15:56 -0700

Boston Red Sox 1B Mike Napoli is not in the starting lineup Wednesday, June 24. OF Brock Holt is starting at first base and is hitting second against Baltimore Orioles SP Bud Norris.

Fantasy Tip: Napoli ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) needs to be avoided everywhere for the time being, as he's hitting .179 (12-for-67) with two home runs and seven RBI in June to drop his season average under .200. Holt ($3,900, 7.8% of cap) has been extremely valuable to fantasy owners for his production and multi-positional eligibility. He makes for a fine value play against Norris tonight, as he has a .312/.391/.478 slash line with both of his home runs against righties.

Red Sox | Pablo Sandoval not starting

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 08:36:51 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Pablo Sandoval is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP Chris R. Young Sunday, June 21. OF Brock Holt will start at third base and is batting second in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Sandoval ($3,300, 6.6% of cap) probably is receiving a day off and should return to the lineup soon. Holt ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has picked up at least one hit in seven of his last eight games with three multi-hit game in that span. Owners on FantasyScore should consider using Holt as a cheaper option.

Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia remains out

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 13:40:45 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia (knee) is not in the starting lineup against Kansas City Royals SP SP Yohan Pino Friday, June 19. OF Brock Holt will start at second base and is batting first in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: Pedroia ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) probably is considered day-to-day at this point, but owners should look for updates on his status. Holt ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) has recorded 11 hits and two RBI over his last six games and could be a cheaper starting option for owners on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Brock Holt solid again

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 20:42:57 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Brock Holt went 2-for-4 with a triple and three runs scored in a 5-2 win over the Atlanta Braves Thursday, June 18, and he has eight hits and five runs scored over his last three games.

Fantasy Tip: Boston has been finding ways for Holt ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) to be in the lineup, and he is making the most of his playing time. He makes a great low-priced option at FantasyScore right now.

Red Sox | Dustin Pedroia sitting vs. Braves

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 13:55:02 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B Dustin Pedroia (knee) is not in the starting lineup Thursday, June 18. OF Brock Holt is playing second base and leading off against Atlanta Braves SP Shelby Miller Thursday.

Fantasy Tip: Pedroia ($4,800, 9.6% of cap) is recovering from a sore knee that held him out of the lineup Tuesday, June 16. It is likely wise for FantasyScore players to fade him until he proves he is 100%. While Holt ($2,800, 5.6% of cap) is scorching hot (.400/.491/.600 slash line over past 12 games), it is a tough matchup, so he is more of a low-priced flier than a lineup target for FantasyScore contests Thursday.

Red Sox | Brock Holt hits for cycle

Tue, 16 Jun 2015 19:07:37 -0700

Boston Red Sox 3B Brock Holt hit for the cycle Tuesday, June 16, against the Atlanta Braves. He is the first Boston player since 1996 to accomplish the feat.

Fantasy Tip: Holt ($2,800; or 5.6% of cap) was filling in for Dustin Pedroia, and he obviously did a tremendous job. Pedroia has no structural damage in his knee, but might miss more time. Holt is a solid FantasyScore option at this price level if he continues to start.
