FanGraphs: Red Sox Have Third Best Bench In MLB

Despite not having a single player ranked as a Top 10 "back-up", the Red Sox overall bench was named the third best in baseball by Shockingly, Brock Holt was not among FanGraphs Ten Best individual reserves, but The BrockStar—along with Ryan Hanigan, Christian Vazquez, Chris Young and Travis Shaw—were seen as the third best collective bench in the majors. For some unknown reason, several marginal players—like, for example, Jedd Gyorko, were placed ahead of Holt on the individual list. Anyway, a strong bench cannot but help this team—it's one less question mark to deal with.
