Despite making his major league debut back in 2012 for the Pittsburgh Pirates, Red Sox Uber-Man Brock Holt finally qualifies for rookie honors in 2014. While he won't win the league-wide prize, he does get FenwayNation 2014 Rookie Of The Year honors. While injuries and fatigue slowed him near the end of the season, Holt was an on-base machine and spark-plug at the top of the Boston order for most of the year. His final numbers are more than adequate—.281 BA, .331 OBP, .581 SLG, .711 OPS. He also had 23 doubles and five triples—and stole 12 bases. In just 106 games, he collected 126 hits and was one of the very few bright lights in the dismal 2014 season. Congratulations, Brock!!!!!
