Hollway was optioned to Triple-A Jacksonville on Saturday. Holloway was roughed up in each of his last two starts, as he allowed eight runs (six earned) on six hits and nine walks while striking out five in six innings. Although Miami's rotation has been dealing with several injuries recently, the right-hander will attempt to sort things out in the minors. It's not clear who could take his place in the rotation next week.
Holloway allowed five runs (four earned) on three hits and four walks while striking out four in 2.1 innings in a no-decision versus Baltimore on Wednesday. Miami jumped out to a 5-0 lead early Wednesday, but Holloway gave it all back by the time he was done. He threw only 32 of his 60 pitches for strikes in the short start. The right-hander's ERA spiked to 4.00 with a 1.36 WHIP and 36:26 K:BB across 36 innings this season. Wednesday was also the first time he allowed multiple home runs, as both Pedro Severino and Trey Mancini went yard against the 25-year-old. Holloway figures to remain in a Miami rotation decimated by injuries -- he lines up for a home start versus the Mets next week.
Holloway is scheduled to start Wednesday's game in Baltimore, Bally Sports Florida reports. Holloway will earn a second straight turn through the rotation, despite giving the Marlins only 3.2 innings while surrendering three runs (two earned) on three hits and five walks in a July 22 loss to the Padres. The Marlins' decision to stick with Holloway likely stems from their lack of healthy alternatives; six starting pitchers on the 40-man roster are on the MLB or minor-league injured list, and another (Paul Campbell) is serving a suspension. Miami at least appears on track to return All-Star Trevor Rogers (back) from the IL within the next few days, so Holloway could be headed to the bullpen or to Triple-A Jacksonville following Wednesday's start.
Holloway (2-3) allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits and five walks with just one strikeout in 3.2 innings, taking the loss versus San Diego on Thursday. Holloway worked behind opener Anthony Bender in this contest. While Holloway kept the ball in the yard, he matched his season high with five free passes, and it limited his effectiveness. The right-hander owns a 3.21 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 32:22 K:BB through 33.2 innings this season. Three of his 12 appearances have been starts, but it remains to be seen how he'll be utilized in his next outing, which tentatively lines up for next week's two-game set in Baltimore.
The Marlins recalled Holloway from Triple-A Jacksonville on Thursday, Christina De Nicola of MLB.com reports. He's expected to work as a bulk reliever behind Anthony Bender in the Marlins' series opener against the Padres, according to Jordan McPherson of the Miami Herald. The Miami rotation has been in flux of late after Pablo Lopez (shoulder) recently joined a slew of other pitchers on the injured list, but Holloway looks like he'll get at least one game to serve as a de facto starter for Miami. Bender has maxed out at two innings over his 31 appearances to date, so he likely won't be asked to record more than six outs Thursday before giving way to Holloway, who owns a 3.00 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 9.3 K/9 across 30 innings with the big club this season.
