News: Holt (concussion) has been cleared to resume baseball activities Friday, Sean McAdam of CSNNE.com reports. Impact: The news is certainly encouraging for Holt, but it's still uncertain whether he'll be able to play again this season. Holt was diagnosed with a concussion last week, after battling neck pain and dizziness for several days prior. Although he packs modest power and speed, Holt's ability to play all around the diamond and get on base at a decent clip will likely be enough for him to maintain a regular role in 2015.(RotoWire, )

News: Holt (concussion) will see a doctor Thursday, Sean McAdam of CSNNE.com reports. Impact: With Holt officially diagnosed with a concussion following a visit to a specialist last week, his status for a return this season is decidedly cloudy. His follow-up Thursday should provide a clearer picture as to whether a return before the end of the month is even possible. Serving primarily as Boston's leadoff hitter this season, Holt has hit .281/.331/.381 with four homers and 68 runs scored in 106 games.(RotoWire, )

News: Holt (neck) was sent to Pittsburgh on Thursday to visit a concussion specialist, Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe reports. Impact: Holt first experienced dizziness upon exiting a game last Friday, but it sounded like a concussion was ruled out at that time. However, the team is concerned that Holt's spells of dizziness haven't completed subsided while he's missed the past week of action, so they'll send him in for further tests. The Red Sox will begin a three-game series with the Pirates on Tuesday, so expect Holt to simply remain in Pittsburgh until his teammates join him.(RotoWire, )

News: Updating a previous report, Holt (neck, illness) did not travel with the Red Sox to Kansas City, suggesting he'll be unavailable for the entirety of the four-game series between the two squads, Brian MacPherson of the Providence Journal reports. Impact: After manager John Farrell previously said Holt would return from a stiff neck and an illness over the weekend, it appears those plans have been tabled due to a possible setback for the utility man. Holt was believed to be in the clear with the neck injury and only trying to get over the flu at this point, so it may just be the case where the team didn't want him around the clubhouse while he was still contagious. He will now turn his efforts to rejoining the Red Sox in Pittsburgh on Tuesday, when they open a three-game set with the Pirates.(RotoWire, )
