Chicago White SoxEdit
Prior to the 2013 season, Holmberg was ranked by Baseball America as the Diamondbacks' sixth-best prospect. The Diamondbacks promoted Holmberg from the Mobile Bay Bears of the Class AA Southern League on August 27, 2013.
On July 6, 2014, the Reds announced Holmberg will be called up July 8, to pitch the second game of a day/night doubleheader vs. the Chicago Cubs. He was sent back down after the game, but was called up to Cincinnati again on August 21. Holmberg started that night's game against the Atlanta Braves, but gave up six runs in two and two-thirds innings and picked up the loss. He was optioned to AAA the next day. On July 29, 2015 the Reds announced Holmberg would pitch the next day to fill in for the empty starting pitching rotation spot, formerly held by Johnny Cueto who was traded to the Kansas City Royals earlier that week.
Holmberg signed a minor league with the Atlanta Braves with an invite to spring training for the 2016 season. He was released in March.
Second Stint with White SoxEdit
Holmberg signed a minor league deal with the Chicago White Sox on April 11, 2016. On May 5, 2017, he was recalled from Triple-A Charlotte Knights and made his White Sox debut the same day against the Kansas City Royals.
