GREG HOLLAND RUMORS & GOSSIP

It's time to turn to Herrera for Royals' eighth-inning job

Like it should be: Davis and Holland lead bullpen bounce-back in Royals' win

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- It took 327 pitches and three hours and 37 minutes to finally resolve the Royals-White Sox game, and in the end it came down to which team could locate one or two pitchers who could simply throw strikes and get someone out. First, enter Wade Davis, the Royals' new Luke Hochevar, who has assumed Hoch's role as the primary setup man to closer Greg Holland...

Royals' Holland mum on contract discussions

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Royals pitchers and catchers report to Arizona for the start of spring training on Friday, and that presumably means All-Star closer Greg Holland will be there. Of course, there's a little business that still needs to be finished. Holland is eligible for arbitration and the two sides have yet to reach an agreement. He asked for $5.2 million after going 2-1...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Right-hander Greg Holland is now the lone remaining Royal still unsigned. But Holland, who appeared at the team's FanFest at Bartle Hall on Friday, didn't seem too worried.

Only one way to go down in Royals closer Greg Holland's world: Swinging

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Sometimes, there would be one shiner. Sometimes, there would be two. The cover story was the same, regardless: "How'd you get that black eye?" Todd Raleigh would ask.

Royals should consider dealing Greg Holland

by John Viril— I know it sound crazy. The Royals still have hopes of getting into contention. Greg Holland might be the most dominating closer in baseball today. The Royals have reasonable hopes they can contend next season—which is the first time they have been able to credibly say that since the 90′s.

Greg Holland placed on 15-day disabled list with left rib stress reaction

One day after his latest in-game implosion, 2nd year reliever Greg Holland has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with "left rib stress reaction."
