Tigers' Derek Holland: Struggles in spot start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holland (0-1) took the loss Friday as the Tigers fell 4-1 to Cleveland, giving up three runs on four hits and no walks over 2.2 innings. He struck out three.

The southpaw got the call when Julio Teheran (triceps) was a late scratch, and while Holland wasn't likely to last deep into the game anyway, a three-run first inning led to a fairly quick hook. He did throw 46 pitches (31 strikes), and if Teheran misses another start, Holland might be the logical candidate to fill in again despite a 12.60 ERA through five innings to begin the season.

Tigers' Derek Holland: Stepping in as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holland will start Friday's game against Cleveland.

Holland tossed 1.1 relief innings against Minnesota on Monday, and he'll step in as a starter on short notice since Julio Teheran was scratched after feeling tightness in his triceps prior to Friday's contest. Holland allowed four runs on five hits and three walks while striking out three in 2.1 innings during his first two outings of the year.

Tigers' Derek Holland: Records first hold Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holland worked around a walk to pitch a scoreless inning and record a hold in Saturday's win over Cleveland.

Holland got the sixth inning after starter Julio Teheran pitched five innings of one-run ball. The veteran lefty made the team out of camp as a non-roster invitee and will look to turn things around after posting an ERA north of 6.00 the past two seasons. Holland should work in a middle relief role for the Tigers, so he could pick up a few holds here and there but doesn't figure to have a ton of fantasy appeal.

Tigers' Derek Holland: Added to roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers selected Holland's contract Thursday, Evan Woodbery of reports.

Detroit cleared room for Holland on the 40-man roster by designating outfielder Christin Stewart for assignment, while Rony Garcia (abdominal strain) was placed on the 10-day injured list to open up a spot on the 26-man active roster for the veteran southpaw. Holland is expected to work in long relief for the Tigers after he was unable to win a spot in the Opening Day rotation this spring.

Tigers' Derek Holland: Will make Opening Day roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holland was informed Friday that he'd made the Tigers' Opening Day roster, Evan Woodbery of reports.

Holland is merely in camp as a non-roster invitee, so the Tigers will have to find room for him on the 40-man roster before he officially joins the team. The 34-year-old is a bit of an odd fit for a rebuilding club, as he's recorded an ERA north of 6.00 in three of the last four years, but he's had an excellent spring, striking out 13 while walking just one in eight scoreless innings.

Tigers' Derek Holland: Sharp this spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holland has tossed eight scoreless innings this spring with 13 strikeouts.

Holland is competing for a bullpen spot with the Tigers and has made a strong case so far. The veteran lefty posted an ERA above 6.00 in each of the last two seasons, so fantasy managers shouldn't expect great results, but Holland could work his way into a middle-relief role.

Tigers' Derek Holland: Competing for bullpen role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holland has looked good in camp so far and could earn a bullpen role with the Tigers, Jason Beck of reports.

Beck projects Holland to be among eight Detroit relievers when the team breaks camp, but the lefty's role is far from certain after struggling most of the last two seasons. He has tossed three scoreless innings so far in spring training with four strikeouts, and he'll likely need to remain sharp to make the club.

Tigers' Derek Holland: Heading to Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holland signed a minor-league deal with the Tigers on Saturday, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

The veteran left-hander spent 2020 with the Pirates and struggled as both a reliever and a starter with an overall 6.86 ERA and 1.40 WHIP. Holland figures to need a strong spring training to have a chance of making Detroit's Opening Day roster.

Pirates' Derek Holland: Works out of bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holland pitched out of the bullpen in Wednesday's 8-2 loss to the Cubs, working five innings while giving up five runs (three earned) on five hits and two walks while striking out five.

Holland had been lined up to start Wednesday heading into the week, but he ended up shifting to the bullpen after the Pirates brought back staff ace Joe Musgrove (triceps) from the injured list. Making his first start since Aug. 4, Musgrove was pulled after three frames (46 pitches), resulting in manager Derek Shelton calling on Holland to eat some innings. Though Holland wasn't particularly effective during his time on the mound, he at least saved the Pirates' bullpen heading into Thursday's series finale. The Pirates will temporarily require a sixth member of the rotation during Friday's doubleheader, but Holland's 83-pitch relief appearance Wednesday will take him out of the mix for the nod. Instead, Cody Ponce looks like the most likely candidate to make a spot start.

Pirates' Derek Holland: Done in by homers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holland (1-2) gave up eight runs on six hits and four runs while striking out eight over five innings in a loss to the Brewers on Friday.

Three of the hits Holland allowed left the yard, as Jedd Gyorko, Ryan Braun and Jacob Nottingham all took him deep. The 33-year-old Holland saw his ERA inflate to 7.62 with a 1.52 WHIP and 31 strikeouts in 28.1 innings this season. He's allowed 10 homers across six appearances -- Holland will need to keep the ball in the yard to find success in his next start, currently set for Wednesday versus the Cubs.

Pirates' Derek Holland: Earns first 2020 win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holland (1-1) earned the win Saturday against the Brewers after allowing one run on four hits with five strikeouts and three walks over five innings.

The veteran southpaw wasn't overly sharp as he delivered only 54 of his 99 pitches for strikes, but he generated 12 swinging strikes and was able to limit Milwaukee to a solo homer from Jedd Gyorko. Holland has a 6.17 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 23:9 K:BB across 23.1 innings and lines up to pitch during Thursday's doubleheader in St. Louis.

Pirates' Derek Holland: Pounded for nine runs
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holland (0-1) was charged with the loss Saturday against the Tigers after surrendering nine runs on 13 hits over five innings. He had six strikeouts and one walk.

The 34-year-old gave up only one homer through his first two starts, but Detroit went deep off him a whopping five times during Saturday's contest, including four times in his first 12 pitches. The ugly outing leaves him with an 8.27 ERA and 1.53 WHIP through 16.2 innings. Holland will look for a rebound performance Thursday at Cincinnati.

Pirates' Derek Holland: Late fade Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holland didn't factor into the decision in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Twins, allowing four runs on four hits and two walks over 5.2 innings. He struck out five.

The southpaw cruised through five scoreless innings before suddenly hitting the wall in the sixth, with Max Kepler's two-run double finally chasing Holland from the game. He tossed 86 pitches (54 strikes) in the outing, and the 33-year-old has been able to give the Bucs some length in the rotation if nothing else. Holland will be an intriguing streaming option in his next outing, scheduled for Saturday at home against the Tigers.

Pirates' Derek Holland: Turns in solid start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holland allowed two earned runs on two hits and three walks while striking out five across 5.2 innings against the Brewers on Tuesday. He did not factor into the decision.

Holland showed erratic control, also hitting a batter and advancing a runner on a wild pitch. On the other hand, he generated 15 called strikes and 11 swinging strikes on 90 total pitches, showcasing some deceptiveness. It was a fairly strong debut with the Pirates for Holland, though he'll draw a tough matchup in his next start Monday at the Twins.

Pirates' Derek Holland: Starting Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holland is scheduled to start Tuesday against the Brewers, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.

The veteran left-hander opens the season as the Pirates' No. 4 starter, but he'll end up pitching the fifth game of the season. Holland also lines up to start Sunday against the Cubs for a two-start week. He mostly worked out of the bullpen last season between the Giants and Cubs and posted a 6.08 ERA and 1.51 WHIP over 84.1 innings.

Pirates' Derek Holland: Callup official
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Pirates selected Holland's contract Thursday.

Since he joined Pittsburgh on a minor-league deal over the winter, Holland wasn't added to the 40-man roster until Thursday, but his spot in the big-league rotation had been fairly secure since spring training concluded. He's expected to begin the 60-game season as the Pirates' fourth starter, with his first turn likely to come in Monday's home opener versus the Brewers.

Pirates' Derek Holland: Tuneup as team's fourth starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holland gave up three runs (two earned) on five hits and one walk in three innings Wednesday. He struck out a pair of batters.

He served up a home run to Carlos Santana. In 2019, Holland surrendered 17 homers in only 68.2 innings for San Francisco, compiling a 5.90 ERA and 1.50 WHIP. The lefty will start one of Pittsburgh's first home games against the Brewers. The team would likely be satisfied with an earned run average somewhere around 5.00 from Holland -- his exact mark over the last five seasons (148 appearances).

Pirates' Derek Holland: Added to team's player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holland, who was included in the team's 60-man player pool, is likely to serve as the team's fourth starter.

The season-ending injury to Chris Archer secured Holland's rotation spot. The lefty compiled a 3.95 ERA in 13.2 innings this spring, though five of the 10 hits he allowed left the ballpark. He gives the Pirates a known pitching commodity at age 33, but he's failed to register an earned run average under 4.91 in five of the last six seasons.

Pirates' Derek Holland: Spot opens up in rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Following the injury to Steven Brault (shoulder), Holland becomes the frontrunner for the team's No. 5 spot in the starting rotation.

He's pitched well in two outings, allowing two runs in 4.1 innings with seven strikeouts. Aside from 2018, when he compiled a 3.57 ERA for the Giants, Holland hasn't finished with an earned run average lower than 4.91 since 2014. The lefty does have a favorable pitcher's park for southpaws in PNC Park, however.

Pirates' Derek Holland: Spotty debut against Tigers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Holland allowed two runs on three hits in 1.2 innings Sunday. He struck out five without walking a batter.

The lefty is competing with Steven Brault and perhaps Chad Kuhl for the team's fifth starter spot. He surrendered an opposite-field homer on the game's second pitch but then settled down with a solid outing. Holland has an opt-out at the end of spring training if he's not on the team's Opening Day roster. Brault, who has one minor-league option remaining, retired the side in order on eight pitches (six strikes) Sunday.
