June 9, 2018 — Lancaster JetHawks (High-A, California League)
Good height, great downward plane with some life to his fastball out of a high three-quarters look. Not overpowering with velo, but pretty decent repertoire that plays up when it’s down in the zone. Had his fastball 88-93 in early June look; paired it with a 74-77 curveball, an 80-83 slider, and a 77-80 changeup. Also timed him 1.31 – 1.38 to the plate with runner on first … Breaking balls are carrying him right now; curve shows good depth with 12-to-6 break; sharp enough to miss bats and works well particularly against RHH. Will change eye level some with release point/height, can also bury it with two strikes. Slider works here, too, with hard look, good tilt and consistent depth in the low 80s. Slider works better against LHH with enough velo to get in to glove side on occasion; nice complement to fastball with depth to get off barrels … Heath Holder is way too old for High-A, but he’s enjoying a bit of a breakout season with Lancaster right now; named to the Cal League All-Star team and has thus far produced stellar peripherals coming out of the ‘pen for the JetHawks, including a 64:13 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 40 relief innings through June 11. Needs to do more at a higher level in the second half this year to get noticed for it, but it’s a nice little resurgence for Heath Holder. Perhaps the Colorado Rockies have themselves a viable middle-relief option here; for me, Holder is a 40 FV (maybe an outside shot at a 45 FV ceiling), with an org-depth floor.
