The Boston Red Sox are likely going through a little bit of a retool in 2020. They won the World Series in 2018 but struggled in 2019 to stay consistent. The Houston Astros cheating scandal caused them to have to fire their head coach Alex Cora. It is not the greatest in Boston right now so they aren’t bringing back many of their non-core pieces.
Brock Holt is likely to be gone from Boston in 2020. He played with them for his whole career besides his age 24 season in which he played for the Pittsburgh Pirates. He wasn’t considered an MLB rookie until he reached his age 26 season and he received some rookie of the year votes. He would be a great addition to the current Chicago White Sox roster.
Holt would obviously be a good addition to the White Sox because of the fact that he can play multiple positions on a team that pretty much just needs depth at this point. He brings a little bit more than that, however. Holt has been an All-Star in his career but his real experience came in 2018 when he and the Red Sox won the World Series.
The White Sox are a team that doesn’t have very many players who have the experience of a deep playoff run. Holt is one of those players around baseball. He has been around superstars that have performed well on the games biggest stage. The knowledge that he might be able to bring to the table would be really beneficial.
There is also a chance that the White Sox just stay put with the roster how they have it. Standing pat might be a good idea so they can see how their talent develops this year. They have a few different players at different stages of the game but they are all well on their way. They also could still make one more move or two so they can have a little extra depth. Either way, Spring Traning can’t come fast enough.
