Brock Holt has been with the team since 2013 and has been one of the most reliable pieces to our puzzle. On any given day, Holt could be playing any position on the field. To date, the only positions he hasn’t played are catcher and pitcher, but I’m sure he’d jump at it if asked. He is the ultimate utility man and has the exact mentality this team needs to succeed.
Holt would benefit from being upgraded from utility player to everyday second baseman. Getting more frequent reps in the field and at the plate could only mean good things for Brock. He is the type of player that isn’t afraid to get his jersey dirty on a daily basis.
Holt reminds me former everyday second baseman, Dustin Pedroia. He’s that guy that will do everything in his power to make the play or get the hit when the lights are shining the brightest.
With Pedroia possibly being healthy going into the 2019 season, I’d love for them to be a dynamic duo of sorts at second. I could see a battle for the position during spring training but I also feel that Dustin would do what is best for the team and could love being that dynamo off the bench.
