Holt – Red Sox All Star
Brock Holt is the Boston Red Sox's lone All-Star, and not Xander Bogaerts as widely expected. Holt was selected as a reserve by the AL All Star Manager, Ned Yost, the Kansas City Royals' manager.
Holt, 27, has played in 66 games of the 84 games this season, hitting .295 while compiling 15 doubles, four triples, two homers, 21 RBIs, a .383 on-base percentage and an .807 OPS.
He has started 59 games, 16 in right field; 14 at second; 12 at third; 6at short; 6 in left; 3 at first; and 2 in center. Like last year, he has played every position with the exception of pitcher and catcher.
There still is an opportunity for Xander Bogaerts to make the All Star team, as he is one of 5 American League players on the Final Ballot. You can vote HERE. Voting ends Friday, July 10th at 4 PM
