Holt (concussion) will remain on his rehabilitation assignment at Triple-A Pawtucket, who will be in Rochester (N.Y.) through Wednesday, Brendan McGair of the Pawtucket Times reports. "I think I'll have Monday off and me and (fellow rehabber Ryan) Hanigan are going to Rochester," said Holt. "I'll play Tuesday and Wednesday, then meet the (Red Sox) when they come back from Tampa and see from there."
Holt had been dealing with lingering concussion symptoms, but told reporters he's feeling "pretty good right now." Despite the progress he's made and the scorching hot bat he's had while on rehab -- he's hitting .421 (8-for-19) following a three-hit day for the PawSox on Sunday -- Holt's return to Boston appears to be on hold for a few more days. The Red Sox were hoping to have Holt come back and serve as a super-utility reserve, but outfield injuries have opened a glaring need in left field.
Holt (concussion) said Sunday was his best day since he started a rehab assignment Monday, Bill Kock of the Providence Journal reports.
Red Sox manager John Farrell said Saturday that he hopes to have Holt back at some point during the upcoming Monday-Wednesday series against Tampa Bay. Although the team previously stressed the importance of caution, Holt may have sped up the process with his impressive weekend, going a combined 5-for-7 (with three walks) while playing a night game followed by a day game. Holt shouldn't have much competition for playing time in left field once he returns, as Blake Swihart (ankle) and Chris Young (hamstring) were both placed on the disabled list this past week.
Holt, who went 2-for-3 with two walks and two RBI while playing left field Saturday, has been on a rehab assignment for nearly a week but hasn't fully shaken his concussion symptoms. "We'll reevaluate it after [Sunday]," Red Sox manager John Farrell said. "Brock's weighing in on this is a key part of this and how he feels not just from the symptoms he's dealing with but from a baseball timing standpoint, too. So I think I said the other day, optimistically it would be in Tampa. But we've got to see how we get through this weekend." With Boston's left field spot decimated by injuries, it would appear Holt will see much of his time there upon his return from the disabled list.
Holt is still dealing with come concussion-like symptoms, Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports. "I can't say that he's 100 percent symptom-free. He's still experiencing some slight symptoms, and that's all been expected based on the information provided," said manager John Farrell on Wednesday.
Holt is working his way back from a concussion, but the Red Sox are being cautious with his rehab plan. He had a scheduled off day Wednesday and he is set to play seven innings in a rehab game Thursday before hopefully logging a full game Friday. Still, until Holt is completely symptom-free, it's unclear when exactly he will be ready to return from the disabled list.
Holt will have an off day Wednesday before playing a full nine-inning game Thursday. The
