Mario Hollands struggles in Grapefruit League opener

by Kerry Kauffman | Phillies Correspondent | Tue, Mar 3rd 4:40pm EST

The Philadelphia Phillies entered the ninth inning on Tuesday with a 5-1 lead over the New York Yankees. Mario Hollands entered and pitcher 2/3 of an inning before being pulled with the game tied. Hollands allowed 4 earned runs on 5 hits, with a game-tying home run with two outs.

Fantasy Impact:

Hollands showed some promise out of the bullpen last season as a rookie. In 47 innings, Hollands allowed 45 hits and 21 walks, with 35 strikeouts. Holland had been nursing a sore elbow about a week and a half ago. Even though he struggled in his first game, Hollands appeared to be healthy. Keep an eye on his progress through the spring.
