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.

Royals | Greg Holland won't be offered contract

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.

Royals | Greg Holland nursing sore elbow

Wed, 23 Sep 2015 08:55:13 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Greg Holland (elbow) continues to nurse a sore elbow, which is one of the reasons why he was ousted as the team's closer in favor of RP Wade Davis for the rest of the season and postseason. Holland has saved 32 games in 37 tries this year with a 3.83 ERA and was charged with a blown save and loss last Friday. Holland's velocity had also dropped from the mid-90s to the upper 80s and low 90s. "Rest isn't going to help him," manager Ned Yost said. "He's been functional through it all year long. It's getting a little more sore the last month or so and he continues to go out, pitch through it and he's been successful for the most part." Davis has 13 saves in 14 chances with a 7-1 record and 0.88 ERA on the year.

Fantasy Tip: Now that Holland won't be getting anymore save chances, he's not worth a roster spot in any formats. Davis was already widely owned before this move, but pick him up immediately if he's out there in your league.

Royals | Wade Davis the new KC closer

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 15:18:05 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Wade Davis is the new closer for the Royals, according to manager Ned Yost. RP Greg Holland has been removed from the role.

Fantasy Tip: Davis' numbers this year certainly justify this move (0.88 ERA, 0.81 WHIP, 10.2 K/9). If Davis wasn't already owned everywhere, he should be now. Feel free to drop Holland now that he won't be seeing save chances anymore.

Royals | Greg Holland out as closer

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 15:11:30 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Greg Holland has been removed as the team's closer for the remainder of the year. His fastball was averaging 90.7 mph in September, which was his lowest velocity in any month of the season of his career.

Fantasy Tip: Holland blew the save and was hit with the loss his last time out last Friday night. He had allowed only the two earned runs in 4 2/3 innings this month, but Wade Davis has pitched much better than Holland all year and should move into the closer role moving forward. If Davis is available anywhere, snatch him up immediately. You can now drop Holland wherever he's owned now that he won't have save opportunities any longer.
