The Tigers placed Holland on the 10-day injured list Thursday with an inflamed left shoulder.
Holland presumably picked up the injury during his relief appearance in Wednesday's 9-6 loss to Seattle, when he retired two of the four batters he faced in an 18-pitch outing. The Tigers are likely hopeful that with a few days of rest, Holland's inflammation will calm down enough for him to resume throwing and make an expedient return from the IL. Detroit called up Alex Lange from Triple-A Toledo in a corresponding move, and he could be a candidate to eat innings in Thursday's series finale with the Mariners, which the Tigers plan to treat as a bullpen game.
Holland (1-1) pitched two scoreless innings of relief to earn the win Tuesday against the Brewers. He didn't allow any hits or walks and struck out four.
Starter Matthew Boyd didn't make it out of the fifth, so Holland's long relief effort was much needed, and he picked up his first win of the season with the strong performance. The veteran lefty still has a 9.00 ERA and isn't in a very fantasy-friendly role most nights, so he should remain off the radar in standard leagues.
Holland (shoulder) struck out three batters in an inning of relief in Tuesday's loss to Cleveland.
Holland returned from the injured list Monday but didn't enter the game, so Tuesday marked his first appearance since May 1, and the veteran lefty looked good. However, he's unlikely to have a high-leverage role, so he carries limited fantasy value.
Holland (shoulder) was reinstated from the 10-day injured list Monday.
Holland had been on the injured list since May 3 due to a left shoulder strain, but he began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo on Thursday. The left-hander allowed three runs on four hits and a walk while striking out one in two relief innings, and he'll now return to the major-league bullpen after Wilson Ramos (back) was placed on the 10-day IL in a corresponding move.
Holland (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Toledo on Thursday.
Holland has been on the injured list since May 3 due to a left shoulder strain, but his rehab assignment should be the final step in his recovery process. Holland likely won't need to build up his workload since he pitches in short stints, so he may not require much time with Triple-A Toledo before returning to the Tigers' bullpen.
Holland was placed on the 10-day injured list with a left shoulder strain Thursday, retroactive to May 3.
Holland last pitched May 1, and he's posted a 13.00 ERA and 2.44 WHIP in nine innings across eight appearances (one start) this season. It's not yet clear how much time Holland will miss due to his injury, but right-hander Kyle Funkhouser was recalled from the taxi squad in a corresponding move.
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.
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.
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.
The Tigers selected Holland's contract Thursday, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com 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.
Holland was informed Friday that he'd made the Tigers' Opening Day roster, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com 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.
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.
Holland has looked good in camp so far and could earn a bullpen role with the Tigers, Jason Beck of MLB.com 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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
