      Cubs' Derek Holland: Headed to IL

      Derek Holland (wrist) was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday, Bruce Miles of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.Holland took a comebacker off his left wrist Wednesday and pitched again Friday, so it appeared as if it was a non-issue. However, the lefty is likely still battling some discomfort in his throwing hand, so the Chicago Cubs decided to give him some time to recover. The team recalled infielder David Bote in a corresponding move.

      Cubs' Derek Holland: Allows walkoff grand slam

      Derek Holland was credited with a blown save as he allowed a walkoff grand slam in Thursday's 7-5 loss to the Phillies.The Chicago Cubs entered the ninth inning up 5-1, but Rowan Wick and Pedro Strop were ineffective, which set the stage for Holland to face Bryce Harper with the bases loaded and the score 5-3. Harper then blasted a 2-2 sinker into the right field seats to end the game and give Holland his first blown save of the season. The lefty now has a 5.59 ERA this season, and he figures to remain in a lower-leverage role for the Cubs.

      Giants' Derek Holland: Continues to be used in 'pen

      Derek Holland tossed two innings of relief while giving up one run on three hits and a walk and striking out one in Thursday's 9-8 loss to the Dodgers.Holland was asked to complete a couple of frames after starter Madison Bumgarner was uncharacteristically roughed up by the rival Dodgers. The swingman has ceded a rotation spot to youngsters Tyler Beede and Shaun Anderson due in large part to his struggles on the mound this season (6.63 ERA, 1.62 WHIP and 1.9 K/BB over 54.1 innings). It didn't help that Holland openly spoke out against management about his trip to the injured list earlier this year, but it would become more of a story if he was actually pitching well enough to warrant a rotation gig. It looks like the 32-year-old will be banished to the bullpen until his performance improves.

      Giants' Derek Holland: Roughed up at Coors

      Derek Holland allowed seven earned runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out two across 2.2 innings Thursday against the Rockies. He did not factor into the decision.Holland struggled from the beginning, allowing back-to-back home runs in the first inning prior to allowing another long ball in the second frame. He got two outs in the third inning after allowing a leadoff walk, though he was pulled with two outs and a runner on third base. Even without holding this start against him given that it came at Coors Field, Holland has been poor this season, lasting more than five innings in only two of his seven starts. He'll look to get his season on track in his next start, likely to come Thursday against Toronto.
