BOSTON -- The Washington Nationals have signed former longtime Red Sox utility player Brock Holt, adding him for the final month of the season.

The 32-year-old Holt played for the Red Sox for seven years before signing a $3.25-million, one-year deal with Milwaukee as a free agent in February.

Holt was released by the Brewers this week after hitting just .100 with nine strikeouts in 30 at-bats over 16 games.

Holt, a popular player with Boston, was a member of its 2018 World Series championship team.
