After being out with a concussion since May 20, Brock Holt has been activated by the Red Sox and will start in left field in the opener of the three-game series with the Angels.
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.
