Description: The Red Sox have called up Triple-A infielder Brock Holt to play third base.
Insight: Jose Iglesias was shipped to the Tigers Tuesday night as part of the Jake Peavy trade, leaving the Red Sox with a hole at third base. Holt was hitting .264 with Triple-A Pawtucket at the time of his call-up. Despite his struggles earlier in the season, the Sox are still hoping Will Middlebrooks can be the team's third baseman of the future. Holt is a stop gap and not someone fantasy owners can rely on.
