Brock Holt Makes First Start In Right Field For Red Sox Vs. Indians


Brock HoltBrock Holt has said he’ll play anywhere his team needs him. He’s certainly getting that chance this season.

The Boston Red Sox utility man will switch positions yet again and make his first career start in right field against the Cleveland Indians at Fenway Park on Saturday afternoon.

Taking Holt’s previous spot in left field is outfielder Jonny Gomes, who is back in the Red Sox lineup batting sixth after sitting out Friday night’s 10-3 win over Cleveland.

The rest of Boston’s lineup remains unchanged, as right-hander Jake Peavy will take the mound looking for his first win since April 25.

The Indians will counter with rookie left-hander T.J. House, who has factored into just one decision since making his major league debut on May 17.
