A 6-foot-7 righthander, Holdzkom has touched 98 mph but has been wild and hasn't had many opportunities to pitch, either in high school or junior college. Holdzkom, whose older brother Lincoln is a pitcher in the Marlins system, was academically ineligible for part of his senior season of high school in Southern California, but the Mariners still drafted him in the 15th round. Holdzkom never signed with the Mariners and went to Salt Lake CC but dropped out after an argument with his coach during a game.
