GREG HOLLAND RUMORS & GOSSIP

Mariners rattle Holland in the ninth and boot Royals from first place

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The one thing still missing from the Royals' recent surge is a huge pull-one-out-of-their-you-know-what win or a dramatic walk-off. The stage certainly was set Friday before a packed house at Kauffman Stadium when Alex Gordon came up with two runners on and two out in the bottom of the ninth, trailing 7-5. Gordon, facing Seattle closer Fernando Rodney, could...

Checkmate! It's game over when Royals' Davis and Holland take over

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Center fielder Lorenzo Cain often has the best view in the house. As he bends his knees and peers into the infield and the batter's box, Cain can see Wade Davis' cutter slice up hitter after hitter. After that, Cain observes as Greg Holland's splider (a splitter/slider) dives without warning into the dirt as yet another hitter waves helplessly at the...

Royals sign Holland to one-year deal, avoid arbitration

Holland not worried over contract status

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. "It's one of those things, both sides will get to the point where they're comfortable," he said. "Hopefully, it's sooner rather than later. It is what it...

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. "Fell down the stairs," Greg Holland would reply, grinning sheepishly. The first time, it worked. But as a Western Carolina Catamount, Holland seemed to fall down the stairs...

Greg Holland named to AL All-Star team

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The last time the Royals had three All-Stars, they were only three years removed from a World Series championship. So, yeah, it's been a while. Until now. Closer Greg Holland was named as a replacement on the AL All-Star squad Sunday, joining left fielder Alex Gordon and catcher Salvador Perez. Holland replaces Seattle Mariners pitcher Hisashi Iwakuma,...

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. But, Greg Holland will probably never have higher trade value than he has...

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." At 0-2 with a blown save and a 11.37 ERA and a blown save in seven appearances, I cannot say I am sad to see Holland get some time off, in fact, this entire bullpen can take some time off, for all I'm concerned....
