Holland (oblique) was placed on the 10-day injured list with a right oblique strain Friday. Holland suffered his oblique injury while warming up to enter the game Thursday, and he'll be sidelined for the final three games of the regular season as a result. Ian Kennedy was called up in a corresponding move, but Scott Barlow and Josh Staumont could be candidates to serve as the closer over the final series of the year. During his return to the Royals this year, Holland posted a 1.91 ERA and 0.95 WHIP over 28.1 innings.
Holland did not pitch in Thursday's win over the Tigers because of a right oblique injury, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports. The right-hander was warming up to enter the game when the oblique issue flared up. The extent of the injury is not yet known, but given the nature of most oblique issues, his season could very well be over.
Holland allowed one hit and struck out one in a scoreless inning Monday, earning a save in the win over St. Louis. Holland allowed a leadoff single to Yadier Molina but made quick work of the next three batters, needing just 10 pitches to retire the 6-7-8 hitters. The 34-year-old picked up his sixth save of the season and his first in over a week. Holland now owns a strong 1.91 ERA in 28.1 innings.
Holland struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Saturday against the Pirates to pick up his fifth save of the season. Holland now has three saves and a win in the last five days and is likely going to win some fantasy leagues for managers down the stretch. He has pitched four of the last five days and each of the last two, so he is likely unavailable Sunday.
