Player Outlook
Colin Holderman's surname was apropos as he recorded a team-leading 27 holds (T-8th in the majors) as the Pirates primary setup man. Armed with an upper-90's sinker, sweeper and cutter, the 28-year-old righty posted solid ratios that would have been even better if not for two poor outings to close out the season. Thumb discomfort may have been to blame for his rough finish, but Holderman's emergence last season was ultimately a boon to Pittsburgh's bullpen. His 24.2 percent strikeout rate was only slightly above league average and he didn't induce many whiffs or get batters to chase. This limits his overall upside, but his 52.8 percent ground ball rate was a top-30 statistic among relief pitchers. Holderman should continue serving as the Pirates' top setup man in 2024, making him a decent target in formats that reward holds.

  • Pirates' Colin Holderman: Dominant run ends

    Holderman (1-3) allowed two earned runs on three hits and a walk while striking out one across one inning to take the loss Sunday against the Rays. Holderman entered the game in the eighth inning with the score knotted at 1-1 and allowed four of the first five batters he faced to reach base to account for the damage. This was the first time he has allowed an earned run in 10 appearances for the month, and he still has a 1.30 ERA and 1.05 WHIP across 27.2 innings on the season. Aroldis Chapman figures to be the primary closer while David Bednar (oblique) is sidelined, but Holderman could also pick up some save chances as arguably Pittsburgh's best remaining high-leverage reliever.

  • Pirates' Colin Holderman: Picks up second win

    Holderman (2-0) allowed two hits but threw a scoreless eighth inning to earn the win Tuesday against the Cardinals. Holderman entered in the eighth inning with the game scoreless. He allowed a pair of two-out singles but managed to escape with his fifth consecutive scoreless appearance.

  • Pirates' Colin Holderman: Makes season debut

    Holderman allowed two runs (one earned) on one hit across two-thirds of an inning Thursday against the Phillies. Holderman was sidelined with an illness for a significant part of spring training, so he began on the season injured list to build up his workload. He was activated Thursday and entered the game in the seventh inning, only to serve up a two-run home run to the second batter he faced. Holderman will likely pitch in high-leverage spots, though he'll be behind both David Bednar and Aroldis Chapman for save opportunities.

  • Pirates' Colin Holderman: Reinstated from IL

    The Pirates reinstated Holderman (illness) from the 15-day injured list Thursday. Holderman appeared in four games during his rehab assignment at Triple-A Indianapolis. He gave up three earned runs in just two-thirds of an inning during his first game but did not allow another run to score in his final three. He'll likely reprise his role as a high-leverage reliever in Pittsburgh's bullpen, though opportunities for saves will be minimal with David Bednar and Aroldis Chapman healthy.

  • Pirates' Colin Holderman: Could be back Thursday

    Holderman (illness) could be activated from the injured list Thursday, Andrew Destin of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Holderman rejoined the Pirates at PNC Park on Tuesday as a member of the taxi squad and appears slated for activation when the team heads out on its road trip. The setup man has gotten off to a late start this season because of an illness.

  • Pirates' Colin Holderman: Begins rehab assignment

    The Pirates sent Holderman (illness) to Triple-A Indianapolis on Friday to begin a rehab assignment. A lengthy battle with a virus kept Holderman out of action for a significant amount of time during spring training, so he will head to Indianapolis in order to properly prepare for his regular-season debut. The 28-year-old righty will be eligible to return from the IL on April 9.

  • Pirates' Colin Holderman: Hits shelf Thursday

    The Pirates placed Holderman (illness) on the 15-day injured list Thursday. Holderman was set back in spring training by a bout with a virus, but he's expected to throw a live batting practice session this week and should soon head to Triple-A Indianapolis to begin a rehab assignment. The right-hander proved to be one of Pittsburgh's more reliable relievers in his first full season in the organization in 2023, compiling a 3.86 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 58:20 K:BB in 56 innings.

  • Pirates' Colin Holderman: Likely bound for IL

    Holderman (illness) said Sunday that he expects to open the season on the 15-day injured list, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Holderman was able to throw a bullpen session Saturday and seems to be coming out on the other side of his prolonged battle with a viral ailment, but since he lost 15 pounds while recovering from the illness and also required a hospital stay, the Pirates won't try to rush him back for the start of the season. Assuming Holderman is able to steadily regain conditioning and advance through his throwing program while the illness fades further in the rear-view mirror, he should be ready to join the Pittsburgh bullpen when first eligible to return from the IL in the second week of April.

  • Pirates' Colin Holderman: Exits outing early

    Holderman exited his appearance in Saturday's contest versus the Twins with cramping in his right arm, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports. Holderman entered the game in the seventh inning, allowing one run on two hits and walk while striking out a batter before exiting. Considering it's his throwing arm, more information on Holderman's status will likely be provided following the contest.

  • Pirates' Colin Holderman: Reinstated from IL

    Holderman (wrist) was reinstated from the 15-day injured list Friday. Holderman will make his return to the big-league bullpen after missing the minimum 15 days with right wrist inflammation. The right-hander has produced a 4.01 ERA and 1.50 WHIP with 28 strikeouts while recording 12 holds and a save over 24.2 innings in 26 appearances with Pittsburgh in 2023. Cody Bolton was optioned to Triple-A Indianapolis in a corresponding move.

  • Pirates' Colin Holderman: Expected back Friday

    Holderman (wrist) is expected to be activated off the injured list Friday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. If that is indeed the case, it will be just a minimum 15-day IL stint for Holderman to heal from a bout of right wrist inflammation. The 27-year-old has posted a 4.01 ERA and 28:7 K:BB in 24.2 innings this season out of the Pirates' bullpen.

  • Pirates' Colin Holderman: Placed on injured list

    Holderman (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day injured list Friday, Alex Stumpf of DKPittsburghSports.com reports. Holderman exited Wednesday's appearance against Atlanta due to right shoulder soreness and will be unavailable for at least the next two weeks. A timetable for his return isn't yet clear, but Yohan Ramirez was recalled Friday to provide additional bullpen depth.

  • Pirates' Colin Holderman: Day-to-day with shoulder issue

    Holderman was diagnosed with right shoulder discomfort following his appearance in Wednesday's game against Atlanta, Rob Biertempfel of The Athletic reports. The injury likely explains why Holderman was woefully ineffective Wednesday, as he failed to record an out and was charged with five earned runs on three hits and a walk. The Pirates are labeling Holderman as day-to-day, but a trip to the injured list could be in the forecast if he doesn't show significant improvement heading into the weekend.

  • Pirates' Colin Holderman: Heads back to big leagues

    The Pirates recalled Holderman from Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday, Jason Mackey of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports. Holderman will be moving up to Pittsburgh after the team had an opening on its 26-man active roster and in its bullpen following Monday's trade that sent Chris Stratton to St. Louis. Since being acquired from the Mets on July 22, Holderman has pitched exclusively for the Pirates' Triple-A club.

  • Mets' Colin Holderman: Dealt to Pirates

    Holderman was traded to the Pirates in exchange for Daniel Vogelbach on Friday, Evan Webeck of The San Jose Mercury News reports. Holderman will head to Pittsburgh after producing a 2.04 ERA and 1.02 WHIP with 18 punchouts over 17.2 innings in 15 appearances with the Mets this season. He'll likely fill a middle relief role with the Pirates, but the rookie could slip into a high-leverage spot if the Bucs trade some veteran relievers at the deadline.

  • Mets' Colin Holderman: Activated and optioned

    The Mets reinstated Holderman (shoulder) from the 15-day injured list Monday and optioned him to Triple-A Syracuse, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. New York saw enough from Holderman during his one-inning rehab appearance Sunday with Syracuse to deduce that he was healthy, but the big club apparently doesn't have a spot available in the bullpen for the right-hander at the moment. After providing a 3.18 ERA while striking out 14 over 11.1 innings for New York prior to landing on the IL on June 11, Holderman should be first in line for a call-up if the Mets require an extra relief arm at any point.

  • Mets' Colin Holderman: Eyeing minimum-length stay

    Holderman (shoulder) said Tuesday that he expects to return from the 15-day injured list when first eligible June 24 or shortly thereafter, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. Holderman said he plans on resuming a throwing program in a few days after a recent MRI confirmed that he's dealing with a minor impingement of his right shoulder rather than a longer-term injury. Before landing on the IL, Holderman had emerged as a key piece out of the bullpen, accruing three wins while generating a 3.18 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 14:4 K:BB across 11.1 innings.

  • Mets' Colin Holderman: Hits injured list

    Holderman was placed on the 15-day injured list Saturday with a right shoulder impingement, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. The move was backdated to Wednesday, leaving Holderman eligible to return June 24, though it's unclear if he'll have a shot at a minimum-length stay. Jake Reed was recalled to take his place in the bullpen.

  • Mets' Colin Holderman: Collects first MLB win

    Holderman (1-0) gave up an unearned run on one hit in the 10th inning Thursday but was credited with the win in a 7-6 victory over the Cardinals. In his third career big-league appearance, Holderman got the call in the top of the 10th and allowed the phantom runner to score from third base on a groundball double play, but the rookie was rewarded for his effort when Pete Alonso walked it off in the bottom of the frame with a two-run blast. Holderman was one of the surprises of spring training for the Mets, and he's shown that performance was no fluke by posting a 0.00 ERA and 3:1 K:BB through his first three MLB innings after strong numbers at Triple-A Syracuse. Given the injuries in the Mets' rotation, the 26-year-old's ability to work longer stints -- three of his nine appearances for Syracuse were two innings, including his final two before his promotion -- could prove vital as manager Buck Showalter patches together his staff.
