SS prospect for the Tigers in West Michigan (A ball) has done something interesting this year.

27 doubles, 11 triples, 14 HRs, and 15 SBs. Sort of a quadruple double. I find that pretty impressive. .282/.381/.513 are all nice numbers too. His K's are a little higher than ideal, but he does draw some walks. He's 24 years old though, meaning he's a little old for the league. What's a guy gotta do to get a promotion?

Very solid offensive numbers for Hollimon so far this season but his 24 errors might be the reason he hasn't been promoted yet. Without any decent SS prospects above him it's still kind of suprising he's still in A ball.

Here are his career stats before this season.

University of Texas

2002 210 AB 8 2B 2 3B 4 HR 37 RBI 5 SB .262/.375/.376

2003 106 AB 5 2B 1 3B 3 HR 10 RBI 7 SB .236/.348/.387

2004 173 AB 6 2B 2 3B 5 HR 28 RBI 8 SB .225/.341/.370

Oneonta

2005 256 AB 13 2B 10 3B 13 HR 53 RBI 8 SB .277/.389/.559

Defense can be worked on as you progress. Unlike hitting where the pitchers improve as you move up, defense remains somewhat the same. Maybe his future is at 3B or even 2B? Either one would still be just fine for this organization as they are somewhat thin in position players at pretty much every position. Also, Tony G in Erie went down for the season some time ago. You'd think maybe they'd move Hollimon up to at least High A and get by with whomever in Erie.

Also, this isn't a fluke from Hollimon. He almost did it last year too in less playing time for Oneonta, missing by only 2 SBs. 13 doubles, 10 triples, 13 HR, 8 SB. I find his versatility very intriguing. This kid isn't getting any younger, I think he should be challenged a bit. He may be an underrated prospect, or he may just be beating up on younger competition.
