● Starting at first base for the first time, Boston rookie Brock Holt went 4-for-4, stole a base and drove in a pair of RBI. In 10 games since moving into the leadoff spot for the Red Sox, Holt has hit .340 with eight runs scored, a homer and six RBI. That's not bad production at all, but there's an expiration date to him hitting at the top of the order. When Stephen Drew, Mike Napoli and Shane Victorino return, Holt will have trouble even getting on the field, let alone batting first. Until then, he's a nice stream option if you need runs.
