Coach’s Insight: Nick Otte discusses UCF RHP Trevor Holloway

Today, we continue our look at the New York Yankees drafted and undrafted players by taking a look at UCF right-handed pitcher Trevor Holloway. Holloway was an undrafted free agent who pitched well before the COVID-19 pandemic. In four starts (22.2 innings), he went 3-1 with a 1.19 ERA and had 37 strikeouts to 6 walks in 22.2 innings. This included a win over Auburn on February 22 (5 IP, 1 ER, 3 H, 2 BB, 9 K’s, 77 pitches).

To learn more about Holloway, we talked with UCF pitching coach, Nick Otte. In this conversation, you will read more about Holloway’s passion for analytics, the improvement of his fastball, the development of his changeup, and much more:

Ricky: When you first got to watch Trevor pitch in a bullpen session, what stood out to you the most about him?

Coach Otte: I can backtrack a little bit. Before I got the job at UCF, I had the chance to see Trevor pitch in junior college out in Colorado in the JUCO World Series. Again, no one out there in Colorado, guys with a really good breaking ball, a lot of them tend to struggle out there. But, man, his curveball was still snapping off pretty good. His ability to spin a breaking ball is as good as anyone I have ever seen.
