Reds prospect LHP David Holmberg was hammered for six runs on six hits and a walk on Sunday for Triple-A Louisville.
The 22-year-old left-hander managed to record just one out before he was chased from the game. Holmberg posted a 2.75 ERA in 157 1/3 innings at Double-A Mobile last season and even made an uneventful spot start in the majors for the Diamondbacks. He was acquired by the Reds during the offseason as part of a three-team trade and provides the organization with left-handed rotation depth in the high minors. Apr 14 - 5:57 PM

Reds optioned LHP David Holmberg to Triple-A Louisville.

Holmberg was slowed by injury in camp but never had a real shot to make the Opening Day roster, anyway. He'll be part of Louisville's rotation.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Reds will acquire left-hander David Holmberg from the Diamondbacks in a three-team trade.

The Rays are the third team in the trade and are set to acquire Ryan Hanigan. Heath Bell is also said to be involved in the deal, though it's unclear where he's headed. Holmberg, 22, posted a 2.75 ERA over 26 starts this season in Double-A and made his major league debut in August. He could have a future as a backend starter.

Diamondbacks optioned LHP David Holmberg to Double-A Mobile.

Holmberg allowed three runs over just 3 2/3 innings Tuesday in his major league debut against the Padres. The young left-hander may get another try in September.

Making his major league debut, David Holmberg lasted 3 2/3 innings and allowed three runs Tuesday in a no-decision versus the Padres.

Holmberg may have a future in the majors, but the Diamondbacks should have plenty of better rotation options going forward. It'd be a bad idea to give him any additional starts this year.

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of LHP David Holmberg from Double-A Mobile.

Holmberg will make his major league debut on Tuesday against the Padres. Ranked by Baseball America before the season as the club's No. 6 prospect, the left-hander boasts a 2.66 ERA and 115/47 K/BB ratio in 152 1/3 innings over 25 starts Double-A starts this season.

The Diamondbacks will call up left-hander David Holmberg to start Tuesday against the Padres.

The Diamondbacks need a starter after Trevor Cahill threw four innings on Saturday, so Holmberg will come up to make his major league debut. The 22-year-old owns a 2.66 ERA and 115/47 K/BB ratio in 152 1/3 innings over 25 starts this season with Double-A Mobile. He was acquired from the White Sox along with Daniel Hudson in the Edwin Jackson deal.

Left-hander David Holmberg was traded from the White Sox to the Diamondbacks in a three-player deal.

Holmberg, who turned 19 earlier this month, was 1-1 with a 4.46 ERA and a 29/9 K/BB ratio in 40 1/3 innings for Rookie Great Falls. He's not a hard-thrower, but he gets grounders with his fastball and swings and misses with his curveball. He's a pretty good second prospect for the Diamondbacks here.
