Holt 'Reserves' The Right To Be An All-Star

(USAToday Sports)
He is the ultimate reserve, and Brock Holt was named yesterday as the Red Sox 'reserve' representative in this year's All-Star Game. Although he's started just 59 of Boston's 84 games, Holt's versatility and consistent performance has vaulted him into the national limelight. Said Holt, "It’s pretty surreal. I’m just honored to be able to represent the Red Sox and the organization at the All-Star Game. I’m humbled, and it’s something I didn’t expect coming into the year. I’m glad it happened, and I’m excited about the opportunity." The 27-year old is hitting .295 this year, with 2 HRs and 21 RBIs in 66 total games—with a stellar .383 on-base percentage. Congratulations, BrockStar!
