Holt 'Reserves' The Right To Be An All-Star

(USAToday Sports)He is the ultimate reserve, and Brock Holt was named yesterday as the Red Sox 'reserve' representative in this year's All-Star Game. Although he's started just 59 of Boston's 84 games, Holt's versatility and consistent performance has vaulted him into the national limelight. Said Holt, "It’s pretty surreal. I’m just honored to be able to represent the Red Sox...

Brock Holt and His Hair are All Stars. Xander Has a Chance, Too.

In a season in which the Sox haven’t sniffed .500 for months, I didn’t expect a bunch of All Star game representatives to come from our team. But I was surprised to see superutilityman Brock Holt get the nod over Xander Bogaerts. In many ways, it makes sense; after all, the game counts for World Series home field advantage and having a guy on the bench who can play any position...

Brock Holt: The American All-Star

The 2015 All-Star reserves were announced on Monday night and probably the biggest surprise of the night was Brock Holt of the Boston Red Sox. The Red Sox have been a disappointment, so far, this season but every team has to have an All-Star like it or not. Xander Bogaerts was probably the popular pick to represent the Sox but Ned Yost, the American League manager, had different...

Brock Holt: Representing Red Sox In 2015 All-Star Game ‘Pretty Surreal’

This embed is invalid" /> The Boston Red Sox knew they were receiving an All-Star in exchange for Mark Melancon, among others, back in December 2012. But to say this is what they envisioned would be asinine. Brock Holt, a throw-in in the trade that brought two-time All-Star closer Joel Hanrahan to Boston from the Pittsburgh Pirates, on Monday punched his ticket...

Brock Holt: All-Star

I’m in the Red Sox clubhouse for the vast majority of their home games, so I could easily write about the team on a regular basis. I choose not to. They get plenty of coverage as it is, and there are 29 other clubs. For the most part, I keep my Boston content to a […]

Ned Yost: Red Sox’s Brock Holt ‘Very Deserving’ Of All-Star Selection

This embed is invalid" /> It’s safe to say Brock Holt has earned the respect of Major League Baseball. Holt was selected Monday to the 2015 MLB All-Star Game at Great American Ball Park in Cincinnati. He is the Boston Red Sox’s lone representative — shortstop Xander Bogaerts is on the Final Vote ballot — and American League manager Ned Yost thinks the...

The Brockstar will represent the Red Sox in the ASG.

Jorge CamargoContributing WriterThe AL All-Star reserves have been announced and Brock Holt is the only Red Sox player in the list. After being traded to Boston in 2013, the super utility guy has been a sensation since last season, where he managed to be one of the few spotlights of an awful year. Many beat writers and analysts assured last offseason that 2014 was only a fluke for...

Brock Holt hits for the cycle against Braves

BOSTON — Even before he stepped to the plate the eighth inning, Tuesday already had been a memorable day at the dish for Brock Holt. The Boston Red Sox utility man, on this occasion playing second base and leading off in place of the injured Dustin Pedroia, had collected hits in three of his four at-bats in an afternoon meeting with the visiting Atlanta Braves, including a seventh...

Red Sox Wrap: Brock Holt Hits For Cycle As Boston Snaps Season-Long Skid

BOSTON — Unlucky No. 7 was the final straw for the Boston Red Sox.

Leading the charge for Boston was Brock Holt, who doubled in the...
