2016 FANTASY BASEBALL LINEUP ISSUES: BROCK HOLT EARNS STARTING LEFTFIELD JOB, RUSNEY CASTILLO LOSES ALL VALUE

The Boston Red Sox had no choice but to give super utility man Brock Holt the starting leftielder's job to begin the 2016 season as he grossly outperformed expensive Cuban import Rusney Castilllo.  With Castillo batting a listless .213 and showing none of the power/speed ability he has hinted at in the past, Holt's promotion pretty much takes away any potential fantasy baseball value his counterpart may have.  The plan is for Castillo to stay up with the Red Sox as an expensive backup but that too is not great for his value as he won't get the chance to further develop with more playing time and at the same time force the team's hand with a solid stretch of hitting in the minors.  While we have been big boosters of Castillo in the past, the fact of the matter is that he is starting to join recent Cuban busts such as Alex Guerrero and Yasmany Tomas.  Cut him loose.  Meanwhile as far as Holt is concerned, he is what he is in terms of an empty .300 average who can score a high amount of runs.  He retains shortstop eligiblity which is where his best value lies but you can do better.
