Holmberg is expected to open the 2013 season back at Double-A Mobile, the Arizona Republic reports. "He has mound presence of a veteran player," Double-A Mobile pitching coach Dan Carlson said. "He repeats his delivery great. He has a great feel for four pitches. He has good sink, excellent location and he carries himself like he's never nervous, never fazed. He's going to be a good, solid major league pitcher."

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

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.
