Dodgers right-handed pitching prospect Grant Holmes struck out five over five shutout innings, scattering two hits and one walk for rookie-level Ogden on Wednesday.
Holmes primarily employs a low-to-mid-90s fastball and a power curveball that is already above-average to shut down batters. His first start was rough, but his bounceback outing from Wednesday is a great sign. The Pioneer League is one of the most hitter-friendly leagues in professional baseball, and he could have inflated statistics as a result. Holmes' third pitch, a change-up, is the definition of a work in progress. He rarely threw his change-up before turning pro, and he will need a lot of work before he has a chance to reach the major leagues. Aug 21 - 9:23 AM

Dodgers prospect RHP Grant Holmes has allowed just one hit and struck out nine batters through first six innings of his professional career.

Holmes, the No. 22 overall pick in the 2014 draft, has dominated in both outings for the Rookie-level Dodgers of the Arizona League. The 18-year-old right-hander struck out five batters in two hitless innings in his professional debut and then followed it with four more strikeouts over four one-hit innings his next time out. If Holmes develops as expected, then it might not be long until he's viewed as one of the biggest steals of this year's draft.

Dodgers signed first-round pick RHP Grant Holmes.

The deal is pending a physical. He's expected to receive above the allotted slot bonus for the No. 22 pick of $1.9805 million. A high school right-hander, Holmes has a fastball that already touches the upper-90s. He could be special if he can find some secondary pitches to go with the heater.

High school right-hander Grant Holmes was selected by the Dodgers 22nd overall in the 2014 draft.

Holmes is a right-hander with a top-notch fastball in the high-90s. He doesn't have a whole lot to go with it yet, but he'll continue to polish up his curveball and changeup in the pros.
