Greg Holland had his first blown save of 2015, giving up a run in the bottom of the ninth. Luckily for Holland, Alex Gordon mashed his fourth home run In the top of the tenth, to regain the lead. In his second inning of work, Holland shut down the Rangers to earn his first win of 2015. Holland finished the evening with two innings pitched, one earned run, and two strike outs.

Fantasy Impact: Greg Holland remains one of the top closers in the game. Now off the DL, and fully healthy, he should continue to rack up the saves.

Greg Holland just recently off the D.L. notched his sixth save of the season, in a 2-1 victory over the Tigers. It wasn't easy for Holland or the Royals, as they waited out almost a two hour rain delay. Then in the tenth inning, Holland loaded the bases but was able to get a double play, cutting a runner down at home. Holland finished it off striking out the Tigers Yoenis Cespedes to preserve the save and a Royals victory.

Fantasy Impact: Greg Holland now healthy and off the D.L remains a top notch closer. Continue to use Holland with confidence.

Fantasy Impact: The game was an 11-0 blowout when Greg Holland entered in the 9th inning. He will still be disappointed to have been tagged for his 6th Cactus League run in the nine innings he has pitched. When games start to matter, expect him to be the dominant closer we are used to seeing.

A Matt Szczur 2-run homer chased Greg Holland from the 9th inning in Sunday's Cactus League meeting. Holland had already given up a 2-RBI double to Stephen Bruno. He left the game after 2/3 IP with a line of 4 H, 4 ER, 0 BB, 1 SO

Fantasy Impact: Greg Holland will need several more appearances like this to make him drop out of the top tier of 3 closers. Draft him with confidence and expect 40+ saves and in the region of 100 strikeouts.

No hits, no runs, no strikeouts and one walk. A predictable inning for the Royals' closer in the loss to the Rockies in the Cactus League on Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Greg Holland is firmly in the top tier with Craig Kimbrel & Aroldis Chapman. In fact, in points leagues, he out-scored all other closers last year. There is no security in the closer job but Greg Holland is just about as safe as you can get.
