Brock Holt

Is there anything Brock Holt can’t do?

Seriously, this is starting to border on the ridiculous. It’s crazy enough that he leads the Boston Red Sox with a .338 batting average after notching another multi-hit game (2-for-4) and scoring both runs in Tuesday night’s 2-1 win over the Minnesota Twins.

But now he’s making highlight reel catches in his first professional start in center field, just a few games after making the transition to the outfield in general? Come on.

It’s gotten to the point where I’ll believe any accomplishment of Holt’s on the diamond. 5-for-5 with two home runs and 6 RBIs? Totally believable. Earns a save while Koji Uehara is unavailable? Makes sense (actually, I think I would have felt better with Holt on the mound instead of Edward Mujica in last night’s save situation, even though Mujica did toss a perfect ninth). Play all nine positions in one game? Naturally!

Welcome to Bill Simmons’s Tyson Zone, Brock Holt – in the best way possible.
