2015

Holdzkom completed an improbable journey from independent ball to the majors in 2014, serving as a useful September callup for the Bucs. The 6-foot-7 right-handed flamethrower uses a mid-90s cut fastball and a palm ball to keep hitters off-balance. He racked up 14 strikeouts with two walks and two runs allowed in a small sample size (9.0 innings). Command issues previously prevented Holdzkom from progressing through the minor leagues and if he struggles again going forward, then it will probably be traced to control difficulties. For now, the former fourth-round pick of the Mets appears to have a role in Pittsburgh's bullpen. Provided he continues to throw strikes, the 27-year-old reliever could see expanded duty in 2015.
