RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

The Red Sox had plans to make Holt a utility infielder, by expanding his position experience to third base. And he was part of the third-base solution in July and August, after Will Middlebrooks had been sent down to Triple-A and before Xander Bogaerts was promoted. He hit .203 in 59 at-bats, almost 90 points lower than he hit with the Pirates the season before. He was on the 40-man roster when the offseason began, and is the only second baseman, other than Dustin Pedroia, on the 40-man. At this point, he's not a lock to remain on the 40-man or in the organization.

2013

Holt offers tremendous patience and an excellent batting eye at the plate. When he made his September debut, it was as if Pirates observers had never seen a patient hitter before (which is only partially true). The middle infielder split time between three levels in 2012, including Double-A -- where he hit .322/.389/.432, Triple-A (.432/.476/.537 in 95 at-bats) and the majors (.292/.329/.354). Despite his hitting ability, Pittsburgh curiously relegated him mostly to the bench with starting second baseman Neil Walker out. Pirates management cautioned observers about Holt's questionable defense, which was labeled as no better than the fifth-best defensive option at shortstop in September. The 24-year-old infielder will battle for a bench spot in Boston after being sent to the Red Sox as part of the Joel Hanrahan deal in December.
