Chicago Cubs: A versatile option defensively

Many baseball fans know the Boston Red Sox are going to clear some money. With that in mind, will they re-sign Brock Holt? Even if he is not an overly-pricey name, he could very well be moving on. If they let him walk he could be an interesting fit for the Cubs. While not a power hitter at all, Holt slashed .297/.369/.402 in 87 games last season. He is a career .271/.340/.374 hitter and was an All-Star in 2015.

Here is a guy that would be the definition of veteran depth. He can play all over the place and is not an everyday player. He has averaged playing in roughly 98 games a season going back to 2014. You are not going to get run production from him but getting on base can help set up the big boppers.

Holt could have a very Ben Zobrist-like role on the team. The most he has made in a season is $3,575,000 (in 2019) and is not going to cost a ton. He may not be a guy who will fix all the Cubs issues, but he could certainly fill the potential role of utility infielder/outfielder depth that can hit decently.
