The Kansas City Royals and RP Greg Holland have mutual interest in a multi-year extension. However, the two sides agreed to a one-year deal to avoid arbitration, and the talked centered on the one-year deal and not a long-term deal, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The talks for a long-term deal might be re-opened down the stretch, but Holland cannot become a free agent until after 2016.

Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost said he would have called upon RP Greg Holland Wednesday, June 10, against the New York Yankees if the situation called for it, even though he had worked three of his past four days. Since his last blown save May 6, Holland has converted 15 straight saves and allowed just two runs over 23 innings, lowering his ERA from 3.75 to 1.80.
Fantasy Tip: Holland has really come into his own, and is a great fantasy option not only in AL-only play, but mixed formats as well. He is now owned in about 85-90 percent of all leagues.

Kansas City Royals manager Ned Yost said he's looking to "mix and match" different relievers in the eighth inning to give RP Kelvin Herrera a chance to pitch in lower-leverage situations. RPs Aaron Crow, Tim Collins, Luke Hochevar or even Bruce Chen could become the primary setup man to RP Greg Holland while Herrera works on some things. Herrera allowed a game-winning homer Sunday, May 19, and it was his eighth homer allowed in his last 14 innings.
Fantasy Tip: There's no telling who might emerge as the new eighth-inning setup man, or if Herrera will get the job back rather quickly. Herrera can be dropped now in most leagues as Holland's primary handcuff while he works out his problems in allowing the long ball.
