Perrotto: Colin Holderman Has Impressive Early-Season Distinction (+)



Colin Holderman, Pittsburgh Pirates

The Pittsburgh Pirates felt like they made a pretty good trade last July when they dealt slugger Daniel Vogelbach to the New York Mets.

The return was right-handed reliever Colin Holderman, a relatively unknown rookie on a Mets team full of star players. While Holderman might not have been a household name, the Pirates firmly believed they were getting a pitcher who could eventually become a big part of their bullpen.

Holderman is living up to that billing through the first 17 games of this season. The 27-year-old has been nearly perfect while serving as the primary set-up man for closer David Bednar.

Holderman has not allowed a run in eight appearances and eight innings. He has scattered seven hits while striking out seven and walking three.
