    Fellow lefty Hollands of UC Santa Barbara has better size at 6-foot-5, 205 pounds, and resembles, in both build and delivery, David Price of the Rays. Of course, his stuff is not as electric, but Hollands figures to have value as either a starter or lefthanded relief specialist. Drafted by the Twins last year as a redshirt sophomore in the 24th round, Hollands has nothing overpowering but shows a five-pitch assortment. He displays an 88-91 mph four-seam fastball, 83 mph two-seamer, curveball, slider and changeup. The knock on Hollands is that he's susceptible to a big innings, which are usually attributable to sudden mechanical breakdowns such as opening his front side too soon, dropping his arm slot and losing his leg drive.
