MLB | Greg Holland ready in August?

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 04:51:32 -0700

Free-agent RP Greg Holland (elbow) could take the mound in August after recovery from Tommy John surgery. He has received interest from both the Kansas City Royals and Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Right now the veteran reliever is without a team, but Holland's fantasy value could improve greatly if he lands a closing job somewhere. Stay tuned to see where Holland lands as interest heats up. If you have a league with a very deep bench you may want to consider picking Holland up as he gets closer to a return.

MLB | Greg Holland throwing

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 16:47:16 -0700

Free-agent RP Greg Holland (elbow) is throwing from up to 60 feet in Arizona and hopes to sign with a team soon. However, it's unlikely he'll pitch this year after having Tommy John surgery last September.

Fantasy Tip: Holland shouldn't be on anyone's fantasy radar in 2016. He could become fantasy relevant in 2017, though, if he signs with a club that has questions at the back end of their bullpen.

Royals | KC wants to bring Greg Holland back

Tue, 23 Feb 2016 19:30:02 -0800

Free-agent RP Greg Holland (elbow) was non-tendered in the offseason, as he recovers from Tommy John surgery. He will not pitch in 2016, although general manager Dayton Moore said the team still is interested in a reunion with Holland. "There's not a lot to say at this point in time, other than we do remain interested in Greg Holland," Moore said Tuesday, Feb. 23. The team might try to work out a multi-year deal with Holland.

Fantasy Tip: With Holland on the mend, the team turns to Wade Davis for late-inning duties, as well as former closer Joakim Soria, Kelvin Herrera and Luke Hochevar to work in setup roles.

Royals | Greg Holland non-tendered

Wed, 02 Dec 2015 17:08:34 -0800

The Kansas City Royals have decided not to tender a contract to RP Greg Holland, officially making him a free agent.

Fantasy Tip: Holland is unlikely to pitch during the 2016 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in September, so this move should not come as a surprise. However, the team could bring him back on an incentive-laden multi-year deal. Unless you are in a dynasty league and wish to stash Holland as a keeper for the 2017 season, he should not be on your fantasy baseball radar.

Royals | Greg Holland could return to KC

Sat, 07 Nov 2015 12:45:34 -0800

Confirming a previous report, Kansas City Royals general manager Dayton Moore said the team is interested in bringing back RP Greg Holland (elbow) on a multi-year deal.

Fantasy Tip: Holland was not tendered a contract by the Royals because he will miss the entire 2016 season as he recovers from Tommy John surgery. Unless you are in a dynasty league and want to stash him as a keeper for 2017, there's no need to pick him up at this point.

Sun, 01 Nov 2015 15:22:16 -0800

Kansas City Royals RP Greg Holland (elbow) will not be tendered a contract for the 2016 season. Sources indicate the club would be happy to bring him back on another deal. Holland could have made over $11 million in arbitration.

Fantasy Tip: Holland should not be picked up at all unless you want to pick him up in a dynasty league and stash him as a keeper for 2017.

Royals | Greg Holland having surgery Friday

Tue, 29 Sep 2015 16:37:54 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Greg Holland (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery performed by Dr. Neal ElAttrache in Los Angeles Friday, Oct. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Holland will be out for all of next year, and Ryan Madson now enters the 2016 season as the favorite to close for the Royals. He'll be heavily targeted by fantasy drafters next spring.

Royals | Greg Holland seeking second opinion

Fri, 25 Sep 2015 08:00:12 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Greg Holland (elbow), who has a significant tear in the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, will seek a second opinion from Dr. Neal ElAttrache next week. Holland's season is over and the injury will likely require surgery. An MRI exam Aug. 31 showed the tear, but Holland wanted to try to pitch through it. He said his elbow had been bothering him since August of last year, but he didn't want to undergo tests. RP Wade Davis will take over in the closer role moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: Drop Holland immediately and seek out other closing options if you owned him. Davis is likely owned already in most leagues, and he just became much more intriguing for 2016 if Holland indeed has to get Tommy John surgery and miss all of next year, as well.

Royals | Greg Holland a Tommy John candidate

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 14:17:55 -0700

Updating a previous report, Kansas City Royals RP Greg Holland (elbow) has a significant tear in his ulnar collateral ligament, according to manager Ned Yost. Tommy John surgery appears to be the most likely option.

Fantasy Tip: Continue to check back for an official announcement, but at this point, there is no reason to hold onto Holland in any fantasy format outside a cavernous keeper/dynasty league.

Royals | Greg Holland shut down for 2015

Thu, 24 Sep 2015 13:40:56 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Greg Holland (elbow) has been shut down for the remainder of the 2015 season.

Fantasy Tip: Holland has been struggling significantly in the second half with a 5.50 ERA and 1.94 WHIP while allowing a .333/.417/.458 slash line to opposing hitters. He has also battled injuries off and on throughout the campaign, so it isn't surprising to see him shut down. Wade Davis will step into the closer role, and he immediately stands as a top-tier reliever because of his sterling run over the past two seasons: 0.94 ERA, 0.82 WHIP and 12.0 K/9 over 134 2/3 innings.
