Holt day to day with sore left knee

Holt day to day with sore left knee

BOSTON -- Red Sox second baseman Brock Holt exited Sunday night's 11-1 win over the Tigers after five innings with left knee tightness.

Holt stumbled going around first base on a first-inning single but remained in the game following a visit from the trainer. He grounded out, added another single and played four more innings in the field before being replaced by Jemile Weeks in the top of the sixth.

Manager John Farrell said Holt is day to day.

"He hyper-extended his knee and it gained some tightness throughout the game," Farrell said. "We got him off his feet. We'll check him tomorrow. We don't feel like this will be a time-missed situation."

Weeks was called up to the Majors on Sunday to provide infield depth after second baseman Dustin Pedroia went on the disabled list Saturday. In his first big league at-bat of the year, Weeks singled and came around to score.

Holt, an All-Star this season, started all three games of Boston's series against Detroit at second base in Pedroia's absence.
