Seven Scoreless for Holt in New Britain
On July thirteenth i took the trek to New Britain Connecticut to see Brad Holt pitch. Holt pitched a 7 scoreless innings of 4 hit baseball and struck out 7. He looked extremely dominate as his mid 90s fastball was overpowering the New Britain hitters. Scouts have said that Holt's fastball is really his only plus pitch but he has come a long way with his curve ball and on that Monday it looked pretty nice and had a lot of sharp movement.

In two starts since Holts great outing in New Britain, Holt allowed 2 runs in 6.2 innings in a win and then took the no decision on july 23 after surrendering 5 runs in 6 innings. With the way the Mets are playing it is not out of the question to bring up their top pitching prospect to see what he can do for them this year. Last year Bobby Parnell got called up in september after playing most of the year in Binghamton. So there is definetly a chance that Holt could make his major league debut this season.
