Greg Holland picked up his eighth save despite giving up two runs in the ninth Tuesday against the Dodgers. Holland surrendered a couple of soft hits, but he was shaky in this one, walking a batter and giving up a hard-hit fly to Yasiel Puig that could have been a homer had he gotten under it just a tad more. The runs were the first surrendered by Holland in eight innings this year.

Greg Holland struck out two in a perfect inning of work Saturday, earning his fourth save in a win over the Dodgers. Holland leads the league with four saves, and he's allowed just one baserunner through his four innings of work. In case there was any concern about Jake McGee's save Friday -- Holland was unavailable after working three of the previous four days -- it should be alleviated now. Holland is the reliever to own in Colorado.

Greg Holland walked a batter but hung on to notch his first save of the season in Monday's victory over the Brewers. It was a scoreless frame but wasn't exactly pretty for Holland. He issued a leadoff walk to Jonathan Villar and then Eric Thames made pretty good contact on a flyout to center field. Nolan Arenado then snared a ball that was headed for the hole and managed to turn it into a game-ending double play. Holland was hitting 95 mph regularly Monday, but we didn't really see him break off his trademark slider.

Greg Holland allowed two runs on three hits in one inning of work Monday against the Rangers. While Holland struck out two in the frame, he allowed a single, a double, and a triple and also let in a run on a wild pitch which occurred on a third strike. He needed 27 pitches to get through the frame. The plan calls for Holland to pitch again on Tuesday, which would mark the first time this spring that he has appeared in back-to-back games. He’s looking like the favorite to begin the year as the closer, so obviously it’s a big test for him.

Greg Holland (elbow) struck out two batters in a scoreless inning Monday against the Cubs. Holland was very shaky in his last outing, so this was nice to see. According to Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post, his fastball sat in the 92-94.5 mph range in this one. It wasn’t too long ago that the assumption was that Adam Ottavino would open the season as the closer by default, but that’s no longer a sure thing. In fact, Holland could have the job in short order.

Greg Holland (elbow) needed just 10 pitches to get through a 1-2-3 ninth inning Wednesday in his Cactus League debut. Holland hit 95 mph with his fastball against the first batter he faced and also broke off a couple nice off-speed pitches. He is expected to make another six to eight appearances in the Cactus League before the start of the 2017 regular season. If everything goes smoothly, the right-hander will likely open as the Rockies' new closer. That would mean a setup role for Adam Ottavino.
