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.
Holland won't start Wednesday against the Blue Jays and will instead move to the bullpen, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
Holland returned from a quick trip to the injured list Thursday with an ugly outing against the Rockies as he gave up seven runs on seven hits and four walks over 2.2 innings. Tyler Beede will rejoin the rotation to start Tuesday, while the Giants have yet to name a starter for Wednesday. Holland has a 6.75 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 42:30 K:BB over 34.2 innings and compiled a 1-4 record in seven starts.
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.
Holland won't make his scheduled start after Wednesday's postponement and will instead start Thursday at Colorado, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Holland was poised to make his return off the 10-day injured list Wednesday but will instead have to wait an extra day. The 32-year-old has a 5.34 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 40:16 K:BB over 32 innings to begin the season.
Holland (finger) was activated from the 10-day injured list ahead of his scheduled start Wednesday against the Rockies, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
As anticipated, Holland has been cleared to rejoin San Francisco's rotation after spending the 10-day minimum on the shelf with a bone bruise on his left index finger. Prior to landing on the IL, the southpaw compiled a 5.34 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 40:16 K:BB through six starts (32 innings). Williams Jerez was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento in a corresponding move.
Holland (finger) is scheduled to be activated off the 10-day injured list to start Wednesday at Colorado, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Holland landed on the injured list at the start of the week with a bone bruise on his left index finger, but he's set to return after spending the 10-day minimum on the shelf. The 32-year-old completed a three-inning simulated game Friday and apparently won't require a minor-league stint. Holland has a 5.34 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 40:16 K:BB over 32 innings through his first six starts this year and has a tall task at hitter-friendly Coors Field in his return.
Holland was placed on the 10-day injured list Monday due to a left index finger bone bruise, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
It's unclear when Holland suffered the injury, but it could help explain the southpaw's poor performance his last time out (six earned runs on six hits and three walks across five innings against the Yankees on Saturday). The move is retroactive to Sunday, making Holland eligible to return May 8, should he prove ready. Ty Blach was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento in a corresponding move and is a candidate to replace Holland in the rotation for the time being.
Holland (1-4) took the loss against the Yankees on Saturday by allowing six runs on six hits over five innings. He struck out six and walked three.
Holland limited the damage through the first four innings, but the Yankees erupted for five runs in the fifth inning, four coming on a grand slam from Gary Sanchez. The 32-year-old has a 5.34 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 40:16 K:BB over 32 innings and is scheduled to start at Cincinnati next weekend.
Holland (1-3) took the loss Saturday, allowing three runs on four hits and a walk over five innings while striking out seven in a 3-1 loss to the Pirates.
The game was called after five full innings due to rain, preventing the Giants from getting a chance to rally and take Holland off the hook for the loss. The southpaw threw 50 of 78 pitches for strikes but served up two homers, and Holland's been taken deep at least once in every start so far this season. He'll take a 4.33 ERA and 34:13 K:BB through 27 innings into his next outing Saturday, at home against the Yankees.
Holland (1-2) gave up four runs on four hits with four walks while striking out six through six innings while taking the loss to the Rockies on Sunday.
Holland only surrendered one run until Nolan Arenado blasted a three-run home run in the fifth inning. Despite having an impressive 11.1 K/9, the homers are becoming an issue as the 32-year-old has given up a home run in each of his four outings. The left-hander has a 1-2 record and a 4.09 ERA through four starts. Holland will get his next start Saturday against the Pirates at PNC Park.
Holland (1-1) picked up the win Tuesday, allowing one run on five hits and two walks over seven innings while striking out nine in a 7-2 victory over the Padres.
The only blemish on the veteran southpaw's line was a Hunter Renfroe solo homer in the seventh inning. Holland is showing early signs that his 2018 performance was no fluke, posting a 3.38 ERA and 21:8 K:BB through his first 16 innings. He'll next take the mound Sunday, at home against the Rockies.
Holland gave up two runs on three hits and four walks while striking out seven through five innings in a no-decision against the Dodgers on Wednesday.
The good news is Holland gathered 22 called strikes on his way to a seven-strikeout performance. On the other hand, he constantly put himself in bad situations with four walks. The 32-year-old has a disappointing 5.00 ERA and a 6 BB/9 through two starts. Holland will look to keep the walks down in his next start Tuesday against the Padres.
Holland (0-1) took the loss against the Padres on Friday, yielding three runs on four hits and two walks while striking out five over four innings.
The Padres had a runner reach scoring position during all four innings in which Holland was on the mound. The southpaw struck out hitters to escape the first and the fourth, but he didn't leave the middle frames unscathed. Holland started slowly last year too, posting a 5.76 ERA in April, but then went on to record a 3.57 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 8.9 K/9, so owners should hardly be too concerned after this disappointing first outing.
Holland owns a 3.38 ERA with six strikeouts over eight innings (two starts) this spring.
The Giants retained Holland after he proved effective as their fifth starter last season (3.57 ERA and 2.5 K/BB ratio over 171.1 innings). The veteran appears to have a clear path to the rotation but will still have to fend off several younger options vying for his job this spring. If the southpaw begins the year in the rotation, his high strikeout rate and favorable home park make him worth a look in deeper formats.
Holland signed a one-year, $7 million contract with the Giants on Monday, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports. The deal includes a club option for 2020.
Holland will return to San Francisco after posting a respectable 3.57 ERA, 8.9 K/9 and 3.5 BB/9 across 171.1 innings (30 starts, six relief appearances) with the Giants in 2018. The southpaw should have the inside track at a back-end rotation spot, and returning to pitcher-friendly AT&T Park (now Oracle Park) should help him repeat some of his 2018 success.
Holland (7-10) allowed three earned runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out two across five innings to take the loss Monday against the Padres.
Holland allowed 10 baserunners but managed to escape several jams to allow only two earned runs. Despite a successful season, Holland has struggled when facing the below-average Padres' lineup, now posting a 5.36 ERA across 24.2 innings -- spanning five starts -- against them. He'll enter his final start of the season, against the Dodgers, with a 3.63 ERA and 1.29 WHIP across 168.2 innings.
Holland allowed four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out six over five innings in Tuesday's win over the Padres. He did not factor into the decision.
Holland got into trouble early, allowing a run in the opening frame, and was later taken deep for a two-run homer in the fifth. This comes on the heels of four consecutive quality starts. He'll take a solid 3.57 ERA and 9.1 K/9 into a rematch against the Padres at home Monday.
Holland didn't factor into the decision against the Braves on Wednesday despite a strong outing that saw him give up just one earned run on five hits over six innings. He struck out seven and walked one.
It was another strong line for the left-hander, who has now fired quality starts in four of his last five outings. Holland had issued at least three free passes in three of those starts, so it was encouraging to see him demonstrate better control in this contest against a formidable Braves lineup. He's now sporting a solid 3.46 ERA and 1.26 WHIP to go along with 159 strikeouts through 158.2 innings and has an inviting matchup on tap with a trip to San Diego early next week.
Holland didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 4-2 loss to the Brewers, allowing two runs on two hits and five walks over six innings while striking out eight.
It was the southpaw's third straight quality start, although Holland's 15:11 K:BB in 18.1 innings over that stretch indicates just how fragile his current run of success has been. He'll carry a 3.54 ERA into his next outing Wednesday at home against the Braves.
Holland threw six innings of one-run ball Saturday, allowing four hits and three walks while striking out three, but he didn't factor into the decision during the Giants' loss in to the Mets in 11 innings.
Holland dueled with fellow southpaw Steven Matz, but neither was handed a decision as this one needed extra innings. The Giants have to be pleased with what Holland has offered this season. Often regarded as an inning-eater, this might be a renewed breakout campaign: 3.56 ERA, 8.8 K/9 and 3.4 BB/9 in 26 starts (146.2 innings), including Saturday's useful outing. He'll face a stiffer test in his next assignment, though, when he heads to Milwaukee on Friday.
