Manager John Farrell envisions Holt playing primarily in center field against certain lefties and on the left side of the infield against some right-handed starters, WEEI.com reports. "I see his alignment being in those three positions, center, short and third base," said Farrell.

Holt will be "used in much the same way that he has," general manager Ben Cherington said Thursday after the Red Sox acquired two outfielders that will put a squeeze on Holt's starts in the outfield, the Boston Globe reports. The general manager said it was manager John Farrell's decision, but that Holt's "earned a lot of playing time and I would expect he'll continue to get it."

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.
