Brock Holt Could Return To Utility Role After Return From Disabled List

Brock Holt is making his third rehab start Thursday with Triple-A Pawtucket, and the fact that he’s starting at shortstop didn’t go unnoticed.

Holt had been starting in left field for the Boston Red Sox before going down with a concussion on May 18, but the PawSox have him getting back to his roots in the infield. And that could be a sign that the Red Sox want him back in the super-utility role he filled last season.

The Boston Globe’s Alex Speier talked about this possibility with Tom Caron and Steve Lyons on NESN’s “Red Sox First Pitch” before Thursday’s game against the Chicago White Sox. You can hear what he had to say in the video above.
