Somerset brings in Holmberg for 2019 season
After the Somerset Patriots lost pitcher Logan Darnell to an injury, manager Brett Jodie and company needed to bring in some depth.
The team announced the signing of left-handed pitcher David Holmberg who will hopefully make an immediate impact to the pitching rotation.
