Holmes (8-3) pitched a perfect inning, striking out one batter to pick up the win over Minnesota on Monday. The right-hander pitched the top of the 10th inning for New York and retired the side in order while preventing the designated runner from crossing the plate. He was credited with the win as a result of Gary Sanchez driving home the winning run in the bottom of the frame. Holmes has earned five wins in 16 appearances since joining the Yankees in late July, and he has registered an excellent 2.04 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 21:1 K:BB across 17.2 frames during that stretch.
Holmes (6-3) was tagged with the loss against Toronto on Wednesday, allowing an unearned run on two hits while striking out two over one inning. Both hits against the right-hander went for singles, but an error by Andrew Velazquez provided the extra base needed for Toronto to scratch out a run. Despite the loss Wednesday, Holmes has been very effective since joining the Yankees in late July, posting a 2.30 ERA, 0.70 WHIP and 19:1 K:BB across 15.2 innings.
Holmes (6-2) allowed a hit and struck out one in one inning to earn the win Friday versus Baltimore. The right-hander kept Baltimore off the board in the 11th inning, setting the stage for Giancarlo Stanton's walkoff single in the Yankees' half of the frame. Holmes has yielded only three runs (two earned) on seven hits and a walk while striking out 12 in 12.1 innings since he joined the Yankees at the trade deadline. He's added three wins and three holds in that span, although there's little chance he works his way into a more prominent role with Aroldis Chapman entrenched as the closer. Chad Green and Jonathan Loaisiga are more likely to get ninth-inning duties if Chapman falters.
Holmes (5-2) worked a perfect inning with a strikeout Tuesday night, nabbing the win in the Yankees' 5-4 victory over the Braves. In his first appearance since returning from the COVID-19 IL, Holmes needed just nine pitches to get three outs, punctuating his outing by striking out Adam Duvall on three pitches. Since joining the Yankees before the trade deadline, the right-hander has a 1.93 ERA with eight strikeouts over 9.1 innings pitched.
Holmes (illness) was reinstated from the COVID-19 injured list Monday. Holmes tested positive for COVID-19 nearly two weeks ago but rejoined the Yankees on Thursday. He threw side sessions to test his health but wasn't activated during the team's series against the Twins. However, the right-hander will be available out of the bullpen for Monday's series opener in Atlanta. Holmes has made 12 relief appearances since the All-Star break, and he's posted a 4.97 ERA and 0.95 WHIP in 12.2 innings during that time.
