Infielder Mike Miller was optioned back to Triple-A Pawtucket to make room for Holt on the roster.
Holt was hitting .239 with three homers and 19 RBI before he was injured. He hit .320 (8-for-25) in an eight-game rehab stint for the PawSox.
After signing a five-year, $36 million deal with the Bruins, center David Backes joined Jim Murray and Greg Dickerson, filling in for Felger and Mazz, on 98.5 The Sports Hub.
