Greg Holland nearing minors contract with Nationals

Jamal Collier of reports the Nationals are nearing a minor-league contract with Greg Holland.

Fantasy Impact

Holland got off to a strong start at the Diamondbacks closer this year but was ultimately designated for assignment. He pitched well for the Nationals last year but isn't expected to see save chances, so there isn't much fantasy upside here.

Greg Holland to be designated for assignment

The Diamondbacks are designating Greg Holland for assignment, according to Robert Murray.

Fantasy Impact

After a brilliant and surprising start to his 2019 campaign, Holland lost his closer's role in late-July after a string of poor performances. With Archie Bradley performing well in his limited time as a closer, and with the Diamondbacks looking more toward 2020, Holland was of little use to the team. He'll likely latch on with a contender and pitch in the middle of their bullpen, but his usefulness in fantasy should be done for 2019. As for Bradley, this only helps his job security.

Greg Holland pulled from closer’s role

Greg Holland has been removed from the closer’s role.

Fantasy Impact

Holland allowed two runs and recorded only one out in Friday’s blown save. Diamondbacks’ manager Tony Lovullo is deciding to look elsewhere for the ninth inning. Yoan Lopez, Archie Bradley, and Yoshihisa Hirano could all be in the mix for save opportunities. Holland was off to a strong start, but in his last 16 appearances he allowed 10 runs and was 8-for-12 in save opportunities.

Greg Holland blows the save on Friday versus Marlins

Greg Holland gave up two runs in the bottom of the ninth to blow the save and take the loss on Friday against the Marlins.

Fantasy Impact

This is the second straight outing Holland has been pulled in the middle of a save chance, so perhaps the Diamondbacks will be making a change soon. It's very up in the air who could take over as the ninth-inning man in his place, which makes this a situation worth monitoring.

Greg Holland strikes out two for 17th save

Greg Holland picked up his 17th save of the year on Monday versus the Orioles, striking out two and allowing just one hit in a scoreless ninth.

Fantasy Impact

Holland needed just 14 pitches to preserve the 6-3 Arizona win. The 33-year-old closer now has an even 3.00 ERA on the year and should remain the D'Backs' ninth inning man for the rest of 2019.
