RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

There was no outlook written for David Holmberg.

2016

Holmberg has never really recovered from the shoulder injury that hampered his 2014 season, as he now tops out at 87 mph with his fastball, and that lack of velocity and life on his fastball has doomed him from having a meaningful major league career. He got torched in six starts with the Reds and was released at the end of the season. He may get another trial in a different organization, but his hopes are pretty slim.

2015

Holmberg came over from the Diamondbacks in the offseason three-way trade that sent Ryan Hanigan to the Rays. He spent most of the year at Triple-A Louisville, where his results were pretty spotty, and hurt some by a midseason shoulder injury. His first outings with the Reds were pretty ugly, too, as he allowed eight homers in just 30 innings. He's pegged to begin 2015 in Triple-A, and barring an order of magnitude improvement, projects to be no more than a spot starter again for the Reds in the future.

2014

One of the brightest young prospect in the Arizona system, Holmberg posted a great year in Double-A Mobile in 2013 with his 2.75 ERA. His command is good, but the lefty still has some polishing to do. The D-Backs included Holmberg in their three-team trade with the Reds and Rays in December, putting Holmberg in the mix for a rotation spot in Cincinnati at some point in 2014. Most likely, he'll start the season with his new Triple-A affiliate in Louisville to refine his secondary offerings against advanced competition.

2013

The D-Backs gave Holmberg his first taste of Double-A, which led to a drop in strikeout rate (6.4 K/9) after he fanned nearly a batter per inning at his previous minor league stops. Right-handed hitters presented more of a challenge to Holmberg after the level bump, as he struck out just 13.8 percent of them after fanning righties at a 29.8 percent clip at Visalia. Given that he did not display a significant lefty-righty split at previous levels, it will be interesting to see if he can adjust. Considering that he's only 21, the D-Backs will likely return him to Mobile to begin the 2013 season, where he'll continue to refine his arsenal and prepare for a potential 2014 arrival.

2012

Holmberg's fastball velocity jumped from the 89-91 mph range to 93-95 at Low-A South Bend and the results reflected it. After an impressive 14-start run in the Midwest League, he was given the promotion to High-A Visalia where the strikeout rate remained impressive (9.6 K/9IP) over his final 13 starts. Holmberg has demonstrated good control (career 2.7 BB/9IP) to this point, so there's little reason to be concerned about his spike to 4.4 BB/9IP in the second half. Further, he's done an excellent job of preventing long balls by inducing a decent number of his outs on the ground (1.20 GO/AO). He should get his first taste of Double-A in 2012, while the D-Backs can afford to be patient with him as he turned 20 in July and probably won't make a big league arrival until late 2013 at the earliest.
