Twins optioned C Steve Holm to Triple-A Rochester.

Twins manager Ron Gardenhire said he expects Drew Butera and Steve Holm to share time behind the plate while Joe Mauer is out.

"We're going to mix them both in there and see what happens there,'' Gardenhire said "Drew is a very good catch-and-thrower and Steve can do those things, too. And we liked [Holm] him in spring training. Actually hit the ball pretty good for us." Holm is a bit better at the plate, but neither player will be a viable fantasy option while they're splitting time.

Twins purchased the contract of C Steve Holm from Triple-A Rochester.

Giants designated catcher Steve Holm for assignment.

The Giants needed a roster spot for Matt Downs, who has been called on to supply depth in the San Francisco bullpen. Holm is stuck behind a group of catchers on the Giants' organizational depth chart, so perhaps a change of scenery will help his career in the long run.

Giants optioned catcher Steve Holm to Triple-A Fresno.

The move was made to make room for minor league hitting phenom Jesus Guzman. Oddly, the move leaves the Giants with no backup catcher, meaning it's likely a short-term move just for the weekend series against the Mariners. Third baseman Pablo Sandoval is now the emergency catcher.

Giants recalled catcher Steve Holm from Triple-A Fresno.

Giants optioned catcher Steve Holm to Triple-A Fresno.

Holm has seen limited action since re-joining the Giants in July, but he managed to go 6-for-12. Still, he's not a long-term answer, and the team wants to take a look at Pablo Sandoval.

Holm hit .214/.321/.357 in 70 at-bats as Bengie Molina's backup before being demoted on July 1. He gets his job back from Eliezer Alfonzo now.

Holm was hitting .214/.321/.357 in 70 at-bats as Bengie Molina's backup. The Giants are turning to Elizer Alfonzo hoping to get a little more offense.
Tue, Jul 1, 2008 10:05:00 PM

Steve Holm didn't start Wednesday because of flu-like symptoms, but he delivered a game-tying double off the bench in the ninth inning.

He stayed in to catch afterwards. Holm was supposed to get the start today, but Bengie Molina had to catch the day game after a night game.
