Royals | Greg Holland may not be available

Mon, 24 Aug 2015 15:08:54 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Greg Holland (arm) may not be available to pitch Monday, Aug. 24, because manager Ned Yost said Holland's arm is "cranky" with stiffness.

Fantasy Tip: Holland hasn't been at his best this year, but he's in no danger of losing the closing role unless he has to go on the DL. Keep tabs on his status for the rest of the week. If he's unavailable tonight or in subsequent games this week, the best bet to see save chances would be Wade Davis. Davis is already valuable in the majority of fantasy leagues because of his excellent numbers in a setup role.

Royals | Ugly outing for Greg Holland

Thu, 13 Aug 2015 21:24:14 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Greg Holland blew his fourth save and took a loss against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Thursday, Aug. 13, allowing four runs on four hits and walking while failing to record an out.

Fantasy Tip: Setup man Wade Davis also allowed two runs, so it was a rough night for the normally stout Kansas City bullpen. As ugly as Holland's outing was, he should still be the team's closer provided he doesn't have a few more meltdowns.

Royals | Greg Holland earns another spotty save

Sat, 08 Aug 2015 06:11:01 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Greg Holland earned his 24th save of the season during the Royals' 3-2 win over the Chicago White Sox Friday, Aug. 7. However, Holland did surrender a ninth-inning home run to Chicago 1B Adam LaRoche.

Fantasy Tip: Holland has allowed a run in five of his past 14 appearances, which suggests the sterling results we saw during the 2013 and 2014 seasons (1.32 ERA, 0.89 WHIP, 13.4 K/9 and 93 saves) may be a thing of the past. Still, as long as Holland is pitching the ninth inning for the Royals, he is a solid source of saves for seasonal owners. Wade Davis looms, though, especially if Holland continues to serve up runs.

Royals | Greg Holland with another rough outing

Tue, 21 Jul 2015 23:12:05 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Greg Holland allowed a run on four hits and a walk with two strikeouts in converting his 21st save Tuesday, July 21.

Fantasy Tip: That's two rough outings in a row if you include his blown save Saturday. He has a 4.66 ERA and 1.86 WHIP this month, which can be misleading because it's just 9 2/3 innings. However, 13 hits and five walks in that stretch tells the story that he's struggling. Holland is still an elite closer in traditional formats, but stay tuned to his progress in the near future.

Royals | Greg Holland blew save

Tue, 07 Jul 2015 17:54:10 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Greg Holland blew the save Tuesday, July 7, against the Tampa Bay Rays. Holland picked up the win when the Royals scored four runs in the bottom of the inning.

Fantasy Tip: Holland blew a save for just the second time this season, but he has been bailed out in the bottom-half of the inning on both occasions. Holland remains a clear-cut elite closer.

Royals | Greg Holland back in the mix

Wed, 20 May 2015 15:27:44 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Greg Holland (neck) is available to pitch against the Cincinnati Reds Wednesday, May 20, according to manager Ned Yost.

Fantasy Tip: Holland was unavailable Tuesday, May 19, due to a stiff neck. Now that he is back in the saddle, he should be started with confidence in all formats and remains a high-end closer.

Royals | Greg Holland has stiff neck

Tue, 19 May 2015 19:40:26 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Greg Holland (neck) was held out of the game Tuesday, May 19, against the Cincinnati Reds, due to a stiff neck.

Fantasy Tip: Holland must be kept on season-long rosters regardless of whether he ends up on the disabled list. That's a worst-case scenario at this point, as the injury doesn't sound overly serious. The Royals will play it safe with one of the best closers in the game, and owners should expect a few more nights off.

Wed, 06 May 2015 06:49:14 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Greg Holland (pectoral) was activated from the 15-day disabled list following the game Tuesday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: Holland may be used in setup duty for a couple of games to get him acclimated, but he should return to your traditional lineups.

Sun, 03 May 2015 15:24:45 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Greg Holland (chest) may come off the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, May 5.

Fantasy Tip: Holland has reported few difficulties recovering from a strained pectoral muscle, but you may want to wait a game or two before putting him back in your lineup.

Royals | Greg Holland could return next week

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 14:53:22 -0700

Kansas City Royals RP Greg Holland (pectoral) threw his first bullpen session Tuesday, April 28, since his pectoral injury. He could be ready by early next week, according to manager Ned Yost.

Fantasy Tip: Holland will immediately return to the closer role when he's ready. Wade Davis has been filling in lately in the ninth inning. He should remain owned in the majority of fantasy baseball leagues for his numbers in a setup role, though.
