7/01/22

USA CNT: A blue-chip recruit who lived up to his billing, Holton went 8-4, 3.14 with 97 strikeouts against 29 walks in 80.1 innings to earn Freshman All-America honors this spring. He worked 2.1 scoreless innings in North Carolina during Team USA training camp, then shined in Haarlem, allowing just one hit in 5.1 scoreless innings over two appearances, striking out six and walking two. Built like a tank at 5-foot-11, 195 pounds, Holton may not be tall, but he's very strong, with thick, powerful legs and a tree trunk core. He works around the corner from a slightly above three-quarters arm slot, giving him excellent deception that makes his fastball explode on hitters. It's also plenty firm, sitting at 93-95 mph during his 2.1-inning stint in Durham, with some sink and arm-side run. Holton has very good feel to spin the breaking ball, and he can manipulate the shape and power on it, sometimes throwing it with more depth and downer action at 75-77, sometimes throwing it harder with more lateral tilt at 78-81, but the two versions blend together and do not appear to be separate pitches. His best ones are thrown with conviction at 80-81 and can eat up lefthanded hitters. Call it a slider, a curveball or a slurve — it's currently an average pitch that flashes above-average or even plus on occasion. Holton also showed a very good changeup that he throws with good arm speed at 85-86 mph, a higher-spin change in the 2000s-2100s with some bottom to it. The changeup also flashed plus with serious tumble at its best, giving him three legitimate swing-and-miss weapons.

Vanderbilt recruit. Average frame. 5-foot-11, 160 pounds. Always shows up in big moments. Hit two home runs in Team Elite’s first game. Hit a walkoff double in the playoffs and added a home run in the championship game. Exaggerated load from the left side with a big leg kick, long stride, deep hands and arm bar. Solid bat speed allows him to get the barrel through and square balls up consistently. Mostly pull approach, but flashes barrel control and the ability to go the other way. On the mound, shows smooth delivery with good tempo and rhythm. Fastball was 89-93. Slider has 3/4 break at 76-79 and he mixes in a low-80s splitter. Struck out four and allowed two hits in two innings of work.

2/15/20

Vanderbilt commit. Ranked the #3 2021 in the state. 5-foot-11, 175 pounds. Showed a strong two-pitch mix on the mound. Slightly closed landing. Arm works extremely quick and keeps speed consistent on breaking ball. SL showed large shape with tight spin. Executes well with the pitch in all counts. ⅙ bend at 72-76. FB sat 88-91 in first couple of innings. Has natural run and works both sides of the plate. Does an impressive job throwing to the inside part of the plate. Works extremely fast in between pitches. Also showed two-way potential. Hit a HR to RF and took 91 the other-way for a single on lefty-lefty matchup. Low hands to start and keeps them low during load.

Vanderbilt recruit, currently ranked No. 57 nationally, No. 6 in Georgia’s 2021 class. Thin 5-foot-11, 160-pound left-handed pitcher with an extremely fast arm at foot strike. Carved for Team Elite Black in his start, pounding the strike zone with his 88-90 fastball. Pitched at 87-89 in the third inning. Effectively mixed three pitches. Slider sat 75-76 while his straight change was 80-81. Punched out four straight to start the game.

7.25.18-

Good looking left handed arm with some moxie. Excellent combination of now stuff, deception and pitch-ability. What he may lack in upside he doubles down on security.  Holton just looks like he will get hitters out.
