    Hollan is a 6-foot-5, 200-pound lefthander who pitched for San Jacinto (Texas) JC in 2022, but moved to Arkansas for the 2023 season. He had a loud fall showing where he impressed scouts with mid-90s velocity from the left side and raised expectations for his first showing in the SEC. He posted a 4.13 ERA this spring in 15 starts and 80.2 innings, with a 21% strikeout rate and 8.2% walk rate. Holland didn’t have quite the strikeout numbers that scouts were expecting, but he is more projectable than a typical college pitcher with an ultra-lean frame that could still add weight and velocity. This spring he averaged 90 mph on his fastball despite the uptick he showed during the fall, though he did scrape a 97 at peak velocity. He throws three secondaries: a sweepy slider around 80, a mid-70s curveball with similar shape and a mid-80s changeup. The slider and curveball were Hollan’s most effective swing-and-miss pitches this spring, but he showed solid feel for all four offerings and was equally effective against both righties and lefties. While Hollan doesn’t have a single plus pitch currently, he does a lot of things well and has a frame to dream on while throwing from the left side.
