SEATTLE -- Leadoff hitter Brock Holt has emerged as a candidate to make the American League All-Star team after being recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket on May 17.

It just might be tough figuring out what position he could fill.

Holt has played five spots -- right field, left field, center field, first base and third base -- this season. Since he began hitting leadoff on May 23, he leads the Major Leagues with 45 hits. Entering Wednesday, his .320 batting average led all rookies who have at least 150 plate appearances, and he's hitting .322 as Boston's leadoff man.

Fans can cast their votes for starters at MLB.com -- online or on a mobile device -- using the 2014 All-Star Game MLB.com Ballot Sponsored by Experian until Thursday, July 3, at 11:59 p.m. ET. The 2014 All-Star Game will be played at Target Field on Tuesday, July 15 on FOX.

On Tuesday, he accounted for all of Boston's runs in an 8-2 loss, going 2-for-5 with a double and a two-run homer.
