Holt, the former 2008 1st round pick (33rd overall), finished his season 3-14 with a 8.34 ERA between AA Binghamton and A+ St. Lucie. The most puzzling stat was he walked (79) nearly as many batters as he struck out (87). His BB/9 was a whopping 7.48!!! After bursting on the scene in 2008, Holt's stock has fallen faster than an Aroldis Chapman fastball. With all that being said, with a solid AFL campaign in front of numerous scouts and baseball front office personel, Holt has a chance to redeem himself and springboard into 2011.
Wishful thinking? Lets hope not.
