John Farrell Considering Superman (Brock Holt) for All-Star Game

Brock Holt

With the Red Sox at 38-47 (as of this writing) and in fourth place in the American League East, the team clearly boasts only a couple possible candidates for this year’s All-Star Game. Fortunately for at least one lucky Red Sox player, MLB requires that each roster has at least one player from each team.

Also fortunately for the Red Sox, manager John Farrell is the AL’s manager in the game thanks to last year’s World Series win. So, who is Farrell considering from his own squad?

BROCK HOLT.

““There’s been some conversation about him and yet because of those other factors, you don’t have carte blanche to [build] a 34-man roster,” Farrell acknowledged, before adding, “[Players are] realistic. They see the years other players have had and the All-Star Game is representative of a guy’s year currently being had.”

The 26-year-old rookie has been the team’s lone bright spot from an offensive standpoint this season, batting .322/.367/.441 in 51 games for the team. He has solidified the leadoff spot for a team desperately needing a top-of-the-order hitter, swatting a cool .324/.340/.729 slashline from the top spot.

Holt has also played five positions around the diamond and been the team’s only productive outfielder this season.

Other All-Star possibilities are Jon Lester and Koji Uehara, but come on… BROCK HOLT.
