BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2019  Due to publishing agreements, the 2019 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2019 book (available in hardcopy, and soon e-book and Kindle).
2018 For the second straight year Holt was sidelined by concussion issues, but this time they limited him for the majority of the season. The former All-Star (remember that?) was placed on the DL on April 21 and didn’t return to the bigs until July 16. He made cameos at all the corners, but Holt’s primary duty upon rejoining the Red Sox was to fill in as Dustin Pedroia’s replacement at second. Turns out the Sox might’ve been better off with a one-legged Pedroia, as Holt hit .198/.307/.267 from August 1 onward. It’s unclear if Holt’s non-follicular skills are naturally leaving him or if his concussion troubles are expediting the process. If the latter is true and a full offseason of R&R helps, Holt could emerge as an important part of a 2018 Red Sox team that will be without Pedroia until at least May. But the smart bet is that the halcyon days of Brock Holt: Superstar Super Sub are over, and that’s a shame.
2017 Is Holt a Westworld host? There’s substantial evidence to suggest so. Like all creations of Ford and Arnold, Holt looks natural in a variety of settings and storylines. He’s been the scrappy utility player, the sparkplug, the relative unknown and the All-Star. Look, there he is flashing decent leather at third base! And now he’s playing an adequate left field! But just like hosts can melt down when pushed too far outside of their loops, Holt short-circuits when pressed into everyday duty. He only played in 94 games last season, but that was due more to a concussion than any effort to limit his playing time. For the third season in a row, Holt’s second-half performance was noticeably worse than his first. Holt is still a luxury for a Red Sox team that plans to start Pablo Sandoval at third and Andrew Benintendi in left field, and he’s great Dustin Pedroia insurance to boot. But much like Teddy or Delores, Holt is at his best when his role is well-defined and not when memories of past triumphs and trials cause him to take on more than he’s designed to handle.
2016 The Red Sox were tough to watch during the first half of 2015. Their young players weren't thriving, their new additions were floundering and their pitching sent most of New England into a state of denial. Who could Boston look to in this time of need? None other than Brock Holt and Brock Holt's hair, who together hit .292/.379/.412 en route to an All-Star Game appearance. For the second straight year, Brock Holt, All-Star continued to serve as baseball's most versatile player, appearing at every defensive spot save pitcher and catcher at least once. Unfortunately, as the Red Sox got better in the second half, Brock Holt, All-Star got much worse, continuing a more ominous trend. Chances are we've seen Brock Holt, All-Star's peak, but so long as he continues to serve as Boston's Swiss Army knife he's a uniquely valuable and incredibly fun asset. o/ indeed.
2015 Don't read the comments—unless you're Brock Holt. With a grind-it-out attitude that makes high school coaches weak in the knees, Holt's the sort of player the casual fan always wants to see more of—a superutility type who is always just the spark the lineup needs, if you ask me. After tearing the cover off the ball for the better part of three months, Holt came crashing down to earth in the second half, hitting just .253/.305/.333 from July 1st onward. He's not a starter for a first-division team, but Holt has transformed himself from a Quad-A guy to one of the more intriguingly versatile players in the league. He also has a glorious, glorious head of hair.
2014 Acquired with Joel Hanrahan, Brock Holt could have a future as a big-league utility infielder, but 2013 was an inauspicious start. You have to root for a guy who acknowledges the inherent STEVE HOLT! joke potential in his name, so consider us hopeful.
2013 Remember David Eckstein? Of course you do. Holt might be the closest thing around these days. Hes short and gritty, hits for average, and shows a knack for getting on base. The difference is that Eckstein got a chance to start at shortstop in the majors. Holt hasn't had that chance, and doesn't figure to get it any time soon with Drew on the roster. Holt has options left, so if he can't catch on as a utility man, he'll get to know Interstate 95, which will take him into and out of Pawtucket.
2012 Brock Holt's stock dropped with a letdown season. His future is at second base and his grit is off the charts, but he has to hit for average and draw walks to make up for a lack of obvious tools.

My roster is Russell Martin, Kendrys Morales, Josh Harrison, Brock Holt, Brett Gardner, Dexter Fowler, Gregory Polanco, Coco Crisp, Carlos Ruiz, Travis Snider, Kyle (and Corey) Seager, Jason Heyward, Carlos Correa, Desmond Jennings, Javier Baez, Matt Harvey, Carlos Martinez, Jimmy Nelson, Edinson Volquez, Jonathan Paplebon, Chris Heston, Noah Syndergaard, Lucas Giolito, Julio Urias, Jose Berrios, Matt Cain and Sean Doolittle. 8 keepers allowed. Comments? Suggestions?
(TimLandry from Montreal Quebec Canada)
Keep Matt Harvey eight times. (Christopher Crawford)
2014-09-15 19:30:00 (link to chat)Brock Holt versus Jackie Bradley Jr. versus XB versus Mookie Betts. I see three spots at best for them (although I suppose that Napoli, Victorino, Ortiz, Cespedes and Vazquez could round out a lineup, squeezing out Craig, Middlebrooks, etc.) Who do you see missing the cut?
(prophet from Undisclosed)
Bogaerts isn't sitting for anyone, and Bradley isn't starting over anyone. Betts is either going to start in RF next year, start in Pawtucket and wait for someone to get hurt or get shipped off for pitching this off-season. The guess here is Victorino or Craig gets moved, Betts starts in RF and Bogaerts at SS, with Holt on the bench and Bradley in Triple-A. (Ben Carsley)
2014-08-15 14:00:00 (link to chat)Who makes up the Red Sox infield in 2015?
(Jim from Boston)
Pedroia! So that's one. I have a hard time imaging they'll move Napoli, so he'll probably be at first. Bogaerts will be at short or third. I'm guessing third, but that's one of the things the Red Sox hope to learn over the next two months. At short then, Deven Marrero? Things are easier if Bogaerts stays at short both because third is an easier position to fill and because the team has Will Middlebrooks, Brock Holt, Garin Cecchini, and probably someone I'm forgetting. (Matthew Kory)
2014-06-26 14:00:00 (link to chat)Rank these guys: Brock Holt, CJ Cron and Steve Pearce
(PJ from Boston)
Cron, Holt, Pearce. I'd watch to see if Cron is traded for an arm this summer, though. That would potentially change things. (J.P. Breen)
2014-06-13 13:00:00 (link to chat)In the very deapest of dynasty leagues, would you consider Kevin Kiermaier, Jesus Montero, Brock Holt, Brandon Barnes, Bobby Abreu, Eugenio Suarez, Rene Rivera, Steve Pearce, and Juan Lagares. In what order would you rank them of those you would consider?
(Donald from Orlando)
I'd look at Kiermaier, and Holt most among that group. Kiermaier has some nice PT with Myers down and Holt seems to be ready to play anywhere to stay in the lineup. There isn't a lot of disparity in the group, but for this year only, I'd still give Abreu a look, too. Beyond that, Suarez and Montero would be my next two. (Paul Sporer)
2014-06-11 12:00:00 (link to chat)I'm roughly as real as Daniel Nava was, right?
(Brock from Boston)
Oh, Brock... /swoons. Brock Holt the jack of everything, master of nothing for the Red Sox is hitting .341/.381/.472. I'm buying Nava more than Holt though. Nava hits right handed pitching well. I still believe that even though he's gotten off to a rough start. Getting shipped back and forth to Triple-A hasn't helped while Holt, because he's an infielder (or, today, maybe an outfielder) who could fill in for Will Middlebrooks got regular playing time. Holt has some skills, versatility, some pitch recognition, and also versatility, but he's got no power at all. He's not a starter, but he's a heck of a fill-in. One of the only guys in Boston hitting right now. (Matthew Kory)
