Holland (elbow) has been throwing from 60 feet, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports. The free agent is slated to miss the entire season after undergoing Tommy John surgery at the end of the 2015 regular season, but he's begun the rehab process and is hoping to land a contract sometime this season. Assuming all goes well, Holland should be good to go for 2017, but he faces a lengthy recovery process ahead of him.
The Royals declined to tender Holland (elbow) a contract for 2016. This was fully expected, with Holland set to miss all of 2016 after undergoing Tommy John surgery in September. It's possible the Royals will look to bring Holland back on a multi-year deal, but the price would have to be right, as they have enough bullpen depth to overcome his loss (as they proved in the World Series).
Royals pitcher Greg Holland (elbow) underwent successful Tommy John surgery Friday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports. After being diagnosed with a "significant" tear in his UCL, Holland will likely have to refrain from any activity over the offseason. Given the usual timetable for Tommy John, the 29-year-old likely won't be available until the 2017 season.
Royals reliever Greg Holland (elbow) has a "significant" tear in his UCL, and Tommy John surgery seems the most likely outcome, Andy McCullough of the Kansas City Star reports. Holland has already been shut down for the remainder of the season, but Tommy John surgery could potentially cut into most, if not all, of his 2016 availability as well. If that's the case, Wade Davis would likely surge up draft boards with saves added to his already eye-popping stats.
Royals pitcher Greg Holland (elbow) will be shut down for the rest of the season. It was thought that Holland would only miss a few days due to the soreness in his elbow, but it turns out the setback will sideline him much longer than originally expected. The extent of Holland's setback is uncertain, but it's possible it could affect his status for the 2016 season. Wade Davis will serve as the Royals' closer for the rest of the current campaign.
