Holmes will open the season with Double-A Midland, Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com reports.
It was originally reported that he would go to Triple-A when he was optioned out of big-league camp, but instead he will head back to the Texas League. Holmes logged a 4.49 ERA and 150:61 K:BB in 148.1 innings at Double-A in 2017, but missed most of 2018 with a shoulder injury.
Holmes was optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas on Sunday, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.
Holmes tossed a scoreless inning during his time at big-league camp. He spent the majority of the year at Double-A a season ago, where he posted a 4.49 ERA and 1.42 WHIP with 150 punchouts over 148.1 frames.
Holmes (shoulder) is fully healthy heading into spring training, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.
Holmes is finally healthy after a nagging shoulder injury limited him to just two starts with High-A Stockton in 2018. The young right-hander will likely report to Double-A Midland to open the 2019 campaign.
Holmes (shoulder) was added to Oakland's 40-man roster Tuesday.
Holmes had his contract purchased in an effort to protect him from the upcoming Rule 5 draft. He missed the majority of the 2018 season with a rotator cuff injury, returning to the mound briefly with High-A Stockton in August before getting shut down with another shoulder issue at the beginning of October. His status for the 2019 season is currently unknown.
Holmes was shut down from all throwing activities late in the season and will have his shoulder re-evaluated in the near future, Jane Lee of MLB.com reports.
Holmes suffered a rotator cuff injury during spring training and didn't make it back into action until late August at the High-A level. It doesn't appear as though he's out of the woods just yet, and the right-hander could be facing another long absence should tests reveal that he's dealing with a major injury.
