Hot-hitting Brock Holt stayed in the leadoff spot and played third base in place of Bogaerts. He played right field Saturday as Farrell and the staff continue to test his defensive versatility. Holt, who came up in the Pirates organization as a second baseman, has played third, first, right and left field this season for the Red Sox.
Holt had a .338/.377/.468 slash line in 139 at-bats entering Sunday's game.
Bogaerts was used a pinch-runner in the ninth inning of Sunday's 3-2 loss, but he did not play the field.
