Diamondbacks interested in Greg Holland

Holland, 32, is coming off an odd 2017 season during which he completed his recovery from Tommy John surgery and posted a 1.62 ERA and 1.02 WHIP with the Rockies over the first half, earning a spot on the NL All-Star team, only to go into a massive slump in August, when he threw for a 13.50 ERA and 2.14 WHIP over 11 appearances while allowing opponents to post a 1.095 OPS against him.

Since the Braves are still waiting on their homegrown prospects to come up and turn the franchise into a perennial competitor, it doesn’t seem logical that they’d try to bring in Holland on a one-year deal.

And though Holland could always move to a different role if Atlanta were to acquire better late-inning options, signing him to a long-term deal may not be the best move since there will be so many more prestigious relievers available after this season.
