Since May 23, Holt has played all 321 innings of Boston's 34 games. You wonder if Holt can generate enough notice to warrant consideration for a spot on the American League All-Star squad.
Though he isn't on the ballot to be selected as a starter, Holt could generate some consideration as a manager's selection -- Red Sox manager John Farrell will lead the AL -- or the Final Vote ballot.
In Friday night's 6-0 loss to the Yankees, Holt made a tremendous leaping catch against the wall in right to take extra bases -- perhaps even a home run -- away from Brian Roberts.
In the eighth, Holt made a nice sliding snare against Carlos Beltran.
"He's doing a great job for us in right field," said Farrell. "He makes a diving catch in short center field to take away a base hit, leadoff walk to [start] the game, a double into right-center field, goes up against the wall in right field to make another good catch. Brock has done a very good job in that role."
At the plate, Holt has hit safely in 31 out of his last 34 games.
He generated one of just two extra-base hits the Sox had on Friday against the Yankees, ripping a double in the third.
"I feel good," said Holt. "It's been a good run. I'm trying to continue to do what I've been doing, stay with my approach and get in a good position to hit and put a good swing on a good pitch."
