Eric Holmes is a slender 6-0, 160 lb junior lefthanded pitcher from Iowa with a live, quick arm. He throws from a mid 3/4's release point with a cross body severe slinging arm action. Holmes fastball was 80-82 mph and it got on hitters pretty quickly. He spun a few good curveballs around 67 mph and showed a mid-70's change up. That Holmes was able to throw consistent strikes with his delivery and arm action is a testament to his overall athletic ability. There is plenty more in Holmes arm as far as stuff and velocity is concerned. Watch very carefully to see if this young southpaw makes any adjustments because he could take off at some point.

Eric Holmes is a 2007 LHP/OF from Wilton, Iowa, with a lean build and narrow shoulders at 5'10", 145 pounds. He pitches from a 3/4 arm slot, and has a smooth and easy arm action. He has good balance early in his delivery, but falls off towards the 3rd base side in his finish. His fastball tops out at 76 mph with good arm side run. He gets good movement at times on his 1-7 curveball at 61-62 mph. Defensively, he has an above average arm from the outfield (78mph) with good carry. He is a switch hitter with more right handed power and bat control, and he hits from a wide stance with little or no stride. He sprayed line drives to all fields showing good power. Eric is a young player with lots of room to grow, and will play at the next level.
