Another Red Sox fan favorite is officially out the door. According to The Athletic's Ken Rosenthal, utility man Brock Holt has agreed to a deal with the Milwaukee Brewers.
Free-agent infielder Brock Holt in agreement with #Brewers, pending physical, source tells The Athletic.
The terms of the deal are not yet known. Holt joins a Brewers team that won 89 games last season and lost in the NL Wild Card Game. The 31-year-old Holt is coming off of a season where he posted a career-high .297 average.
Drafted in the ninth round by the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2009, Holt was traded to Boston with closer Joel Hanrahan before the 2013 season. Holt was a throw-in in the deal with Hanrahan, who was coming off back-to-back All-Star seasons.
Holt went on to play 615 games over seven seasons with the Red Sox, hitting .270 with 23 home runs and 203 RBIs. He was named an All-Star in 2015, and was a part of the 2018 World Series team. The ultimate utility man, he played at least 12 games at all eight non-battery positions, and at least 36 at every position but center field.
