Brock Holt Will Be Primary Red Sox LF Against Righties

According to MLB.com's Ian Browne, Brock Holt will be the primary Red Sox left-fielder against right-handed pitching. While this is not an unexpected eventuality, it is a huge playing time boost for Holt—since about two-thirds of all pitchers are righties. In our view, Holt deserves this promotion—as Runsey Castillo has shown little this Spring and Chris Young can play well against lefties. Look for Castillo to get packaged (maybe along with Pablo Sandoval) in a trade to the Padres for either James Shields or Tyson Ross (and possibly others). Stay tuned!!!!
