Orioles signed LHP David Holmberg to a minor league contract.

Holmberg was outrighted off the 40-man roster of the White Sox last October after registering a poor 4.68 ERA, 1.68 WHIP, and 33/34 K/BB ratio across 57 2/3 innings of relief in 2017. The 26-year-old southpaw holds a career 5.49 ERA in 119 2/3 total innings at the major league level.
Feb 7 - 3:12 PM

David Holmberg has elected free agency.

The 26-year-old saw his first extended action in the big leagues in 2017, registering a 4.68 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 33/34 K/BB ratio in 57 2/3 innings. He'll look to latch on elsewhere on a minor league deal.

White Sox sent LHP David Holmberg outright to Triple-A Charlotte.

Holmberg struggled this season as both a starter and reliever and owns a career 5.49 ERA and 1.68 WHIP in 119 2/3 total major league innings. The 26-year-old left-hander will be a free agent this winter.

David Holmberg lasted just three innings Tuesday, allowing six runs in a loss to the Indians.

It went about as well as you’d expect a David Holmberg start to go. The left-hander gave up six hits – including three home runs – while walking four batters. Holmberg might get another start because the White Sox are lacking options, but you shouldn’t go near him in fantasy leagues.

David Holmberg is scheduled to start Tuesday for the White Sox versus the Indians.

That's assuming he's not needed in relief the next two days. Holmberg has posted a 3.55 ERA but a 28/26 K/BB ratio over 50 2/3 innings with the big club this season and is a poor streaming option Tuesday.

White Sox purchased the contract of LHP David Holmberg from Triple-A Charlotte.

Holmberg has posted a 3.55 ERA but a 28/26 K/BB ratio over 50 2/3 innings with the big club this season. He'll offer length out of the bullpen and could potentially get a start or two.

White Sox sent LHP David Holmberg outright to Triple-A Charlotte.

Holmberg managed a 3.55 ERA in six starts and 27 relief appearances for the White Sox, but since it came with a 28/26 K/BB ratio in 50 2/3 innings, no one bought in. He could be back in September if there's room on the 40-man roster for him.

David Holmberg has been moved to the bullpen.

He lost his spot to Carlos Rodon, who returned from the DL on Wednesday night. Holmberg had a decent run, producing a respectable 3.86 ERA over six starts for the Pale Hose. He'll fill a long relief role until a spot opens up for him in the starting rotation.

David Holmberg surrendered six runs (two earned) on five hits over 5 1/3 innings in Monday's loss to the Yankees.

Holmberg issued four walks in the contest against two strikeouts. The Yankees broke through on the scoreboard against him with a three-run fourth inning, then plated two more in the sixth. With Carlos Rodon (biceps) set to return to the rotation on Wednesday, Holmberg might find himself the odd man out of the rotation, even with his crisp 2.92 ERA and 1.14 WHIP in six starts this season.

David Holmberg surrendered four runs on seven hits over 3 1/3 innings in Wednesday's loss to the Twins.

Holmberg was working with a 2-1 lead entering the bottom of the third. That lead evaporated before the end of the frame, as the 25-year-old southpaw allowed a solo homer to Miguel Sano, an RBI single to Max Kepler and an RBI ground out to Ehire Adrianza to flip the score to a 4-2 Twins advantage. Holmberg struck out four and walked two on the evening. Up next on the docket, a home start against the Yankees. He will carry a 2.93 ERA and 1.08 WHIP (five starts) into that contest.
Wed, Jun 21, 2017 11:16:00 PM

David Holmberg pitched 4 1/3 innings of one-run ball in a no-decision versus the Orioles on Thursday.

Holmberg has been surprisingly effective in four starts and seven relief appearances, but the White Sox still don't have a ton of faith in him, probably for good reason. He will remain in the rotation; he hasn't pitched more than five innings in any of his four starts, but he has a respectable 3.71 ERA.
Thu, Jun 15, 2017 06:02:00 PM

David Holmberg allowed two earned runs, three hits and a walk with four strikeouts over five innings in a win Saturday at Cleveland.

It was Holmberg's first victory since July 30, 2015 when he was a member of the Cincinnati Reds. He started the season with Triple-A Charlotte and was summoned May 4. The White Sox made it easier for him by staking him to an early 4-0 lead and he lasted long enough to qualify for the much-needed win.
Sun, Jun 11, 2017 12:19:00 AM

David Holmberg worked 3 2/3 innings of one-run ball Sunday against the Tigers.

Holmberg was faring pretty well until the bottom of the fourth, when J.D. Martinez slugged a solo home run to left-center field. The 25-year-old left-hander has registered an impressive 2.50 ERA and 0.83 WHIP over two starts and eight relief appearances this season for Chicago. If he gets another turn in the rotation, it'll come on the road against the Indians.
Sun, Jun 4, 2017 05:26:00 PM

David Holmberg allowed three runs over four innings Monday against the Red Sox in a 5-4 win.

The soft-tossing southpaw gave up only two hits, but he walked three and needed 72 pitches to cover his four frames. Holmberg should get another start this weekend in Detroit with James Shields (lat) not ready yet. He can be avoided in fantasy leagues.
