Have the Red Sox identified their next Brock Holt?

Boston is showing “strong interest” in free-agent utilityman Enrique Hernandez, MassLive’s Chris Cotillo reported Saturday, citing sources. Hernandez, who was a fan favorite while with the Los Angeles Dodgers, also has a history with Red Sox manager Alex Cora.

Here’s Cotillo’s report:

If you loved the super-utility role Holt had with the Red Sox, then you likely also would love Hernandez. The 29-year-old has made at least 10 starts at every position other than pitcher and catcher.

A career .240 hitter, Hernandez is coming off a season in which he hit .230 with five homers and 20 RBIs while primarily playing second base.
