Best multi-position players.

I believe a player was left out of the May/June Baseball Digest feature titled Multi-Position Players. Brock Holt of the Boston Red Sox played every position except pitcher and catcher in 2014, and played them very well.

In fact, he made several spectacular plays at different positions while hitting a respectable .281 in almost 450 at-bats. Last year, he probably had the best season of any multi-position player in the majors. If his career continues like this he could be the king of versatile players.

I actually read the article three times thinking I had missed his name. He was also named to the AU-Star team in 2015, having played every position except pitcher and catcher. The only thing I could think that would leave him without mention is that he is relatively new to the scene.
