Holt signed a minor league contract with the Dodgers on Tuesday.
Holt spent the entire 2016 season in the big leagues with Cincinnati, although he was outrighted upon the season's conclusion after batting .235 in his limited opportunities. Between this and the more established options the Dodgers have in place across the outfield, the 27-year-old seems destined for an organizational depth role.
Holt was outrighted to Triple-A Louisville on Monday.
Holt made it through waivers unclaimed, and he'll now head into the offseason off the major league roster. The 27-year-old appeared in 106 contests this year, but he hit just .235 and didn't get a plate appearance over the final 11 games of the season, so it's unclear what the interest will be when he hits free agency following the conclusion of the World Series.
Holt was a late removal from Friday's starting lineup.
It's unclear why Holt is being taken out of the lineup, but that should become clear fairly soon. Scott Selsky will take his spot in right field for the evening.
Holt went 3-for-5 with a double, a triple, a run scored and three RBI in Sunday's win over the Pirates.
It was an impressive showing out of the leadoff spot for Holt, but it was also his first multi-hit game since early June. Even with Billy Hamilton (oblique) sidelined, Holt may need to string together a couple more solid performances before he begins seeing regular playing time.
Holt was bumped up to the leadoff spot Sunday with Zack Cozart (knee) scratched from the lineup, MLB.com's Mark Sheldon reports.
Holt was originally set to man center field and hit eighth Sunday, but he will get a hefty boost up the batting order with Cozart no longer starting.
Holt has just eight hits in his last 53 at-bats -- all singles.
Holt's sluggish production has lowered his batting average to .219 on the season, with just seven RBI. Unless he begins to offer the Reds more upside at the plate, Holt will likely continue to see limited playing time as Billy Hamilton's backup.
Holt is out of the lineup Sunday against the Athletics.
The Reds have turned to Holt the last three games while Billy Hamilton battles a concussion, but Holt will get the day off Sunday as Steve Selsky enters the lineup. Holt is sitting on a respectable .352 on-base percentage on the campaign, and should continue to get the majority of the starts in center field so long as Hamilton remains out.
Holt is in the lineup and batting seventh for Thursday's game against the Cardinals.
Holt will get the start as Billy Hamilton goes through the MLB's concussion protocol. Holt has hit an impressive .294/.372/.353 with six RBI and 12 runs scored through 42 games as a reserve this season and could see increased playing time in the short run should Hamilton miss further time with a concussion.
Holt got the start in center field Sunday, going 3-for-4 with a walk, a run scored and two RBI in a 10-9 loss to the Nationals.
He's now turned in multi-hit performances in each of his last three starts, but with Billy Hamilton showing signs of life at the plate as well, Holt hasn't gotten much of a chance to prove he can handle a bigger workload. Unless the Reds make a move to open up more at-bats for him, Holt remains of interest only in deep NL-only formats.
Holt was a late addition to the lineup for Saturday's matchup with the Mariners.
Jay Bruce was originally slated to start in right field. However, he was a late scratch due to a sore knee. Holt will replace the veteran in right and bat second in the order, though he'll have a tough draw facing off against Felix Hernandez.
Holt is starting in center field and batting leadoff Sunday against the Phillies.
He's started two of the three games this weekend against the Phillies with Billy Hamilton away from the team on bereavement leave. Holt doesn't really have a leadoff hitter profile, with one walk in 42 plate appearances this year against nine strikeouts. Typically, the Reds have Zack Cozart bat leadoff, but he's getting the day off Sunday.
Holt will start in center field and bat leadoff for the Reds on Sunday against the Brewers.
Holt will draw a prominent spot in the batting order with a favorable platoon matchup, giving him high potential to return value at what should be a near-minimum price in daily formats. On the season, Holt is 8-for-28 at the dish with two stolen bases. He hasn't homered in 141 career plate appearances, so the potential for power likely isn't there, however.
Holt will start in center field and hit second Wednesday against the Giants, Jamie Ramsey of the Reds' front office reports.
Holt will be in the lineup for the first time since April 26 with Billy Hamilton sidelined by a minor thumb injury. Holt is 6-for-17 (.353) against right-handers this season, and he will face one Wednesday in Jake Peavy.
Holt is in the lineup and batting eighth for Friday's game against the Cubs.
With Billy Hamilton sitting out due to a thumb contusion and southpaw Jon Lester on the mound, Holt will get the nod in favor of Scott Schebler as the Reds look to rebound from being no-hit by Jake Arrieta on Thursday night. Holt is 2-for-9 with four strikeouts through 12 games this season, but will have a tough matchup against Lester who is off to a hot start this season.
Holt is in the lineup Tuesday against the Rockies.
It will be Holt's first start of the season, as he's gone 1-for-7 with a double and four strikeouts as a pinch hitter so far. With Adam Duvall getting a regular day off, Holt will fill in at left field and bat seventh against the left-handed Jorge De La Rosa.
Holt was recalled from Triple-A Louisville on Sunday, C. Trent Rosecrans of the Cincinnati Enquirer reports.
This comes as a little bit of a surprise, given that Holt was just sent down earlier in the week. Ultimately, though, the Reds decided that they'd rather have Holt up as a backup player than park Jose Peraza on the bench for now.
The Reds optioned Holt to Triple-A Louisville.
Holt was trying to win a utility spot on the team but hit just .217/.321/.261 this spring. Ivan De Jesus made the team ahead of Holt.
Holt has a chance to win an Opening Day roster spot even if the Reds begin the season platooning Scott Schebler and Adam Duvall in left field.
Holt doesn't hit for any power (only six professional homers, none in the majors), but can play all three outfield positions and the Reds like his speed. His path to the majors might be helped if Billy Hamilton isn't ready for Opening Day.
Outfielder Tyler Holt has been recalled and will start in center field for the Reds on Wednesday.
Holt will get the start as the Reds shift around the outfield, including Adam Duvall moving in to play first base and Jason Bourgeois starting in left field. He will bat eighth for the Reds in his debut with his new club.
The struggling Indians made a series of moves Saturday, including the placement of starting pitcher Cody Anderson on the disabled list with an oblique injury and optioning outfielder Tyler Holt, per the Cleveland Plain Dealer.
Both players have been terrible of late. Anderson followed four excellent starts with four in which he allowed 20 runs on 29 hits in 17 2/3 innings. Holt has just two hits in 17 at-bats since his recall from Triple-A Columbus.
