Matt Holland is a 2006 LHP/1B/OF with a 6'4'', 200 lb. frame from Marion IA, who attends Marion HS. He has a tall, athletic pitcher's build with projectable strength. Holland threw 86 mph from first base during drills, along with showing very good athletic mobility and balance. When he took the mound, Holland wasn't able to throw with the same velocity for some reason. He has a smooth delivery with good balance and stays on line to the plate. His fastball was 78-81 mph with good arm side running action. Holland's curveball was 69 mph with a big, early break and he did a good job throwing strikes and moving the ball in and out with both pitches. If he was throwing 86 mph from the mound Holland would move to a different group of left handed pitching prospects. Along with his fielding ability at first base, Holland showed some hitting ability as well. He has raw bat speed and flashed some raw power potential. He's also a 7.35 runner and can play some outfield. Holland is a good student.
