So the 22-year-old lefty gets a chance to join the starting rotation. Vicente Padilla’s injury and subsquent stay on the DL means he’ll get at least two starts. And GM Jon Daniels won’t make any decisions about whether Holland stays in the rotation until he’s evaluated how Holland does (and, I’m sure, how the rest of the rotation does). Daniels also didn’t seem too concerned about Padilla, saying at this point that rest should take care of the problem. Let’s hope that’s the case.
I like Holland and I hope he makes the best of his opportunity.
