Brock Holt’s Permanent Defensive Position Still Undetermined (Video)

Brock Holt clearly has established himself as an everyday player in the Boston Red Sox’s lineup after dominating all season both offensively and defensively.

Holt entered Tuesday night’s game on a 12-game hitting streak, the longest by any Red Sox player this season. He has filled the leadoff spot void left by center fielder Jacoby Ellsbury — a major weakness for the Red Sox at the beginning of the season.

What we don’t know about Holt is where he’ll play on the field. After starting the season at third base, Holt has gone on to play every position except pitcher and catcher. While Holt’s versatility has been a benefit for the team, it only makes sense for him to eventually settle down in one place.

A lot of this will be determined by who the Red Sox pursue in free agency, the progression of prospects such as Mookie Betts, Jackie Bradley Jr. and Xander Bogaerts, along with the health of the team. But until then, Holt is doing his best to show he can play wherever the team puts him.
