Holt will sit for the fourth straight game Friday against Oakland.

While Holt has spent more than his fair share of time on the bench this week, it's not certain that he's slipping into a reserve role. Such a move would arguably be deserved, as his .577 OPS on the season isn't much better than the .557 mark he recorded last season, but three of his absences in this stretch have come against lefties like Friday's starter Cole Irvin, so he may still be in the same platoon role he's occupied all year. Charlie Culberson starts at the hot corner in his absence.
