Holmes also recorded a 7.19 time in the 60 and he’s grown a couple of inches since last summer’s Junior Future Games –  now listed at 5-foot-10, 158 pounds. Holmes is a natural infield defender with advanced confidence in his hands with quick, active feet and a strong arm (86 mph). At the plate, it is a top-of-the-order profile with a direct path, athletic hands and sneaky jump off the barrel at times.
