Minor Moves: Tyler Waldron to the DL, John Holdzkom Promoted to Indianapolis

The Indianapolis Indians have made a pair of moves today. Right-handed pitcher Tyler Waldron was placed on the disabled list with a right intercostal strain. The move was back-dated to July 3rd. Right-hander John Holdzkom was promoted from Altoona to take Waldron’s place.

Waldron has a 3.79 ERA in 40.1 innings this year with Indianapolis, along with a 33:12 K/BB ratio. He’s made four starts in that span, with a 2.37 ERA in 19 innings, with a 17:5 K/BB ratio.

Holdzkom was signed by the Pirates last month out of indy ball. He threw six shutout innings with Altoona, giving up one hit, two walks, and striking out ten. I wrote about Holdzkom when he was signed.

    Holdzcom has been lights out. If he continues in Indy what he’s done in Altoona, he needs to pitch for the Pirates. They need a guy who can mow down batters with strikeouts.
