Brewers release Brock Holt; Red Sox fans react accordingly on Twitter

A former Boston Red Sox fan favorite is out of a job.

The Milwaukee Brewers released veteran utility man Brock Holt on Wednesday, per Major League Baseball’s transaction wire.

Holt’s release isn’t a surprise: The Brewers designated the 32-year-old for assignment over the weekend after he batted .100 (3 for 30) through Milwaukee’s first 16 games.

Holt signed a one-year, $3.25 million contract with the Brewers in February after his seven-year tenure with the Red Sox ended in 2019. The Texas native was a beloved figure in Boston, so his release had many Red Sox fans wondering if the team would re-sign Holt amid their abysmal 2020 season.
