On Monday night, news dropped that the Milwaukee Brewers signed veteran utility player, Brock Holt. This is a great signing for the Brewers considering they are getting a great clubhouse guy who can also provide consistency throughout a lineup. At his worst, Holt is a .250 or .260 hitter who can still play every single position on the field.
Throughout his career, Brock Holt has made one All-Star game (2015), has been apart of a World Series Championship team with the Red Sox in 2018, and has hit for the cycle twice. In fact, Brock Holt is the only player in MLB history to hit for the cycle in a postseason game.
Since 2014, Holt has hit .272 with an average of 98 games played per season. In that span he has also averaged 87 hits per season, 45 runs, and 32 RBIs. When looking at the numbers, Holt isn’t a power hitter by any stretch of the imagination. However, he’s a great contact hitter who also has very good speed.
With Brock Holt, the Brewers are also getting an experienced playoff player. In his career, Holt has played in 12 postseason games and has a .297 batting average. He was an integral part to the Red Sox 2018 World Series win which bolstered Holt into a Boston fan favorite.
When asked on Twitter what the Brewers are getting with Brock Holt, baseball analyst, Jared Carrabis, who is a noted Boston Red Sox fan said,
“Literally the best human being on Earth who can play every single position who has a thing for hitting for the cycle…”
The Brewers found themselves a great player in Brock Holt who will play a major role during Milwaukee’s 2020 season. He has beloved Brewer written all over him and will win over the hearts of every single Brewer fan.
