Will Sox 'Tilt The Windmill' For Reliever Greg Holland?

Greg Holland
Former Kansas City Royals closer Greg Holland didn't pitch at all in 2016. He underwent Tommy John surgery at the end of a disappointing 2015 season. Before that (in 2013 and 2014), he was dominant—with a 1.32 ERA and a 95% save percentage (93 total). Multiple reports suggest that the Red Sox will be present at a Scott Boras-promoted "showcase" by Holland this coming Monday. Supposedly, he is back to throwing in the mid-90s and ready to sign somewhere as a free agent for the 2017 season. Adding Holland would bolster an already promising Boston bullpen—with the return of Carson Smith at some point mid-year. Stay tuned!
