Red Sox Injury Update: Brock Holt to see concussion specialist again

By on 9/15/2014 06:00:00 AM

The Boston Red Sox defeated the Kansas City Royals on Sunday by the score of 8-4. The win improved the Red Sox to 66-84, last place in the American League East. The Red Sox played without Brock Holt for the eighth straight game due to a concussion. Holt is set to see a concussion specialist again this week.

I reported on September 13 that Holt, who has not played since September 5, went to see a head specialist, was diagnosed with a concussion and has not been cleared to play.

As reported by Peter Abraham of The Boston Globe, Holt's concussion wasn't properly diagnosed until Thursday.  He was out of the lineup on Sunday but is hopeful to be back on the field before the end of the season. 

Holt didn't feel right for a few games after the injury on August 25, especially playing under the bright lights at Tropicana Field.

Dr. Michael Collins, who saw Holt previously, will see him this week to assess his situation.

Holt, in his third Major League season, is batting .281 with four home runs and 29 RBI this season. He played in just 50 games combined with the Pirates and Red Sox in 2012 and 2013. Holt has a career batting average of .274 with four home runs and 43 RBI in 156 games.
