PHOENIX (AP) As spring training approached and he remained unsigned, Brock Holt got antsy.
"I thought free agency was going to be a fun thing to go through, but it wasn't. Pretty stressful," Holt said Wednesday after finalizing a one-year deal with Milwaukee. “I don't think I dealt with it that well. My wife over the last couple weeks is like, `Hey, you need to get a job and get out of here.' So I think she's finally excited I'm out of the house and not stressing about it.”
Holt's deal includes a team option for 2021. The 31-year-old left-handed batter had spent his first eight major league seasons with the Boston Red Sox and was an All-Star in 2015.
