Matt Holliday has signed a minor league deal with the Rockies.
Holliday returns to the team that drafted him. It's unclear what his path to the majors would be, given the team's depth of OF options, and he won't be able to DH in the NL. Holliday struggled last year and didn't find a team entering the 2018 season.
Matt Holliday found himself out of the lineup again as Joe Girardi elected to start Chase Headley against Trevor Bauer. Holliday has been a conspicuous omission for the entire series.
