Holder’s glovework at shortstop was unquestioned heading into the 2015 Draft, but questions about his bat made him somewhat of a surprise first-rounder from the University of San Diego. The rap on Holder is largely the same: he’s an excellent defensive infielder who won’t hit enough to play every day. He profiles as a defensive-minded bench player who can move all over the dirt.
