MLB Rumors: Reds interested in signing Brock Holt




 

Brock Holt still doesn't have a team, but he's garnering attention in free agency with spring training less than one month away.

The Cincinnati Reds are one of the teams interested in signing the former Boston Red Sox utilityman, according to Bobby Nightengale of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

While Holt wouldn't be an everyday player, he'd be a valuable presence off the bench. The 31-year-old is a career .271 hitter and capable of playing virtually any position. In 2019, Holt played everywhere except pitcher, catcher, and center field.

In addition to his versatility, Holt proved throughout his Red Sox tenure to be a fan favorite and beloved teammate. The 2015 All-Star undoubtedly would be a welcome addition to the Reds clubhouse.

Boston recently signed ex-Reds utilityman Jose Peraza, presumably Holt's replacement, to a one-year deal worth about $3 million.
