RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

Holland finally made good on his 2011 second-half breakout, posting the best season of his young career despite finishing with just 10 wins on the year. His control peripherals continue to trend upward, and he was able to cut back on the homers allowed from 2012, so there's room for further growth. Holland parlayed a career-high 9.9 percent swinging-strike rate into an 8.0 K/9, with a big part of those gains coming from a more effective slider. Unfortunately, an accident at his home in January resulted in knee surgery, and Holland is expected to miss the first half of the season.

2013

Holland failed to build on 2011's second-half breakout (9-1, 1.21 WHIP, 3.06 ERA, 80 strikeouts in 88.1 innings), though the regression was spear-headed by an ugly 32 homers allowed in 175.1 innings. His control improved, and his K/9 remains very strong so there are some encouraging signs hidden amongst the rubble if you can get past the long ball issues. He'll be well discounted in your auctions this spring, and makes for a nice "post-hype sleeper" candidate as a result.

2012

Holland was one of the league's elite starters after the All-Star break, posting a 9-1 record with a 1.211 WHIP, 3.06 ERA and 80 strikeouts in 88.1 innings. His pre-break numbers were a continuation of his career up to that point, mixing in solid starts with poor ones but showing flashes of potential. His strikeout potential gives reason to think he'll build upon last year's success, but don't be surprised if his impressive 8.1 shutout innings against the Cardinals in Game 4 of the World Series lead to an uptick in his price on draft day.

2011

Holland fell behind in the competition to earn a rotation spot in the spring with a knee injury early in camp, but emerged for a few starts in May before hitting the DL with minor shoulder soreness and a recurrence of his knee injury. He pitched well once healthy, including a nice run in September (27 innings, 26 hits, 27:11 K:BB and a 3.67 ERA in six appearances). Cliff Lee's departure to Philly via free agency gives Holland an opportunity to earn a spot in the rotation this spring and his time on the DL last season should keep the draft day price low.

2010

Holland made just one appearance at Triple-A Oklahoma City before being promoted to the majors, where he remained for the rest of the season. The results were pretty ugly, not surprising given that he essentially made the jump straight from High-A with just four appearances at Double-A prior to last season. He allowed far too many hits (160 in 138.1 innings) and homers (26) to be effective for any prolonged stretch, and he could benefit from spending at least half a season at Triple-A Oklahoma City to refine his offspeed pitches and get some confidence back. Unfortunately, that's not likely in team's plans for Holland, so another season of struggles could await.

2009

Holland reached Double-A, making four starts, in a season that quietly placed him among the better pitching prospects in baseball. His composite line (150.2 innings. 111 hits, 40 walks, 157 K) shows plenty of promise and late-season reports of a consistent mid-90's fastball should help him as he advances. He needs to do a better job of keeping the ball on the ground, but he pairs with Neftali Feliz to give Texas one of the better 1-2 punches in the minors.
