The Red Sox had make a roster move to make room for the activation of Bogaerts on Friday, and though Holt was hopeful he wouldn't need to go on the disabled list, the deicsion was made to add him. Holt had been on fire of late, going 7-for-11 in this three-game series against the Blue Jays.

"It's tough to see because he's playing the way he's playing," said manager Alex Cora. "We'll make a decision tomorrow and see where he's at. The decision we make is for the benefit of the player and obviously the team, too."
