Brock Holt May Open The Season As Starting Left-Fielder

According to The Providence Journal's Tim Britton, Brock Holt—and not Rusney Castillo—may have the inside track on being Boston's Opening Day left-fielder. Manager John Farrell has stated that Holt could see "a good number of at-bats" in left—and he is, in fact, starting there tonight against the Pittsburgh Pirates. It looks as if Dave Dombrowski—free of any ties to old contracts—truly is making the 2016 Red Sox a meritocracy. Way to go, Dave!
