The Rockies are pursuing Greg Holland to help solve their bullpen problem. The free agent missed the entire 2016 season after having Tommy John surgery in 2015. However, the righty was one of the most dominant closers in baseball pre-surgery. He pitcher a 1.44 ERA for Kansas City in 2014, striking out 90 and earning 46 saves. With Colorado looking for a bump to their bullpen and Holland looking for a job, the two entities could be the perfect match.
Here’s what else is happening around the National League West:
- Alexei Amarista is no longer the Padres’ longest tenured player. Ouch.
- The Rockies are super hopeful for 2017 and honestly I wish I had that kind of positive outlook on life.
- The Giants are reportedly “trying to get creative” for Brian Dozier, yet we cannot confirm the exchange of friendship bracelets or macaroni portraits.
- Charlie Blackmon is focusing on improving a different aspect of his game in 2017: the mental side of baseball.
- The Padres are finally making moves...in the minor leagues, that is.
- The Diamondbacks have one mission this offseason: get a catcher.
- Here are some handy dandy salary arbitration dates to remember, since it’s comin’ in hot.
- The Giants are finally building up their middle infield options because apparently Santa is a San Fransisco fan.
- Arizona was a lot of things during the 2016 season, but for the most part they were just injured.
- Was Alex Wood the comeback kid of the 2016 Dodgers?
- Or should that moniker go to the one and only Chase Utley?
- Michael Morse is back on the Giants, so let’s bask in the nostalgia of the moment and remember some of his best moments in the Bay Area.
