Former Boston Red Sox utility man Brock Holt has been designated for assignment by the Milwaukee Brewers, the team announced Saturday.
Holt, a fan-favorite and two-time World Series champion in Boston, signed a one-year contract worth $3.25 million with Milwaukee in February.
Holt has struggled through 16 games played with the Brewers this season. The 32-year-old veteran has hit just .100 (3-for-30) with no home runs, one RBI, and a .222 on-base percentage.
To add insult to injury for Holt, he got hilariously roasted by his son Griff after the DFA:
With Holt on the market, Red Sox fans may be wondering if a return to Boston is in order. Considering the Sox's offseason addition of utility player Jose Peraza, who was signed to replace Holt, there doesn't appear to be a fit for the former All-Star. Of course, anything can happen with the Aug. 31 trade deadline looming.
Holt hit a career-high .297 with three homers and 31 RBI with the Red Sox in 2019.
