Red Sox | Brock Holt still feeling symptoms

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 14:27:34 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF/INF Brock Holt (concussion) is still dealing with some symptoms from the concussion he sustained back in May. A specialist feels playing through it would help, but Holt is still not MLB-ready yet.

Fantasy Tip: Holt has been sidelined for over a month now with this concussion issue, and it doesn't appear he'll be back with the club anytime soon. He was struggling before landing on the disabled list anyway, owning a .239/.310/.354 line in 35 ballgames, not to mention having only one hit in his last 21 at-bats. Bryce Brentz and Ryan LaMarre each get boosts in his absence.

Red Sox | Brock Holt could return next week

Fri, 24 Jun 2016 18:08:30 -0700

Boston Red Sox INF/OF Brock Holt (concussion) will remain with Class AAA Pawtucket on a rehab assignment through the weekend. In a best-case scenario, he could be activated from the disabled list during next week's series versus the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: With OFs Blake Swihart and Chris Young both on the disabled list, OF Bryce Brentz will likely see most of the playing time in left field for the BoSox until Holt returns. OF Ryan LaMarre could also see action at the position, although he is not a recommended option in any fantasy format.

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt (concussion) played in his first minor-league rehab game for Class AAA Pawtucket Monday, June 20. He posted two doubles in three at-bats.

Red Sox | Brock Holt not ready for rehab games

Wed, 08 Jun 2016 17:04:45 -0700

Boston Red Sox INF/OF Brock Holt (concussion) has not been cleared to begin a rehab assignment even though he has demonstrated progress in his recovery from a concussion.

Fantasy Tip: Holt is only worth stashing in AL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues due to his positional versatility. He briefly served as Boston's regular left fielder prior to getting injured but it appears as though Blake Swihart (ankle) will see most of the playing time there once he returns from the disabled list.

Red Sox | Brock Holt to have another exam

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 14:11:37 -0700

Boston Red Sox 2B/OF Brock Holt (concussion) will head to Pittsburgh for another concussion exam, and he could rejoin the team in Minnesota or go on another rehab assignment after that.

Fantasy Tip: Concussions are tricky, and Boston isn't rushing Holt back by any means, especially with Jackie Bradley tearing it up and Blake Swihart now playing the majority of time in left field. It's possible that Holt's peak fantasy value in 2016 already past, as he could just be used as a utility starter occasionally whenever he's healthy. Only stash Holt in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues and temper your expectations upon his return.

Red Sox | Brock Holt still nursing concussion

Thu, 02 Jun 2016 13:04:18 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt (concussion) is still impacted by his concussion symptoms and currently has no timetable for a return.

"The thing about the symptoms I'm feeling is that there are multiple things that can cause them," Holt said Wednesday, June 1. "It can be concussion related. It can be inner ear stuff. It can be neck. Whenever I went home after that game after diving, I got real dizzy and I came back and thought it had to be my neck."

Fantasy Tip: Concussions can be finicky injuries and have lingering symptoms, especially with this being Holt's second in two years. He likely isn't worth stashing outside of deep mixed and AL-only setups, and in his absence, Blake Swihart is receiving plenty of at-bats as the left fielder. Swihart is a middling option in cavernous mixed, two-catcher and AL-only leagues because of his backstop eligibility.

Red Sox | Brock Holt takes batting practice

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 21:42:32 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt (concussion) was able to take batting practice Wednesday, June 1, for the first time since his injury May 19. He also participated in fielding drills for a second day. Manager John Farrell said Holt will need a minor-league rehab stint before he is given the green light to return.

Fantasy Tip: Keep Holt reserved until he can officially return and knock off the rust from his layoff, while also proving his health without any setbacks. When he returns Chris Young's playing time is likely to dry up significantly.

Mon, 30 May 2016 21:12:10 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt (concussion) has ramped up baseball-related activities, but there is no timetable for his return from the 15-day disabled list, manager John Farrell said Monday, May 30.

Fantasy Tip: When healthy, Holt is a Swiss Army knife who can be used in a multitude of positions by his real team and fantasy owners.

Red Sox | Brock Holt may not return to LF

Mon, 30 May 2016 05:26:35 -0700

Boston Red Sox OF Brock Holt (concussion) may be used as a utility player once he returns from his concussion, according to head coach John Farrell. Holt was the starting left fielder before the injury but may be more valuable playing at multiple positions moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: Holt has the ability to play nearly all of the positions, which makes him a valuable player for the manager. He probably would not be an everyday player if he is used as a utility player but should see solid playing time. Holt is hitting only .239 this season but should be owned in deeper mixed leagues.
