With Joakim Soria set to undergo Tommy John surgery, it’s time for you to get familiar with Royals reliever Greg Holland.â†µ
Holland’s 26 and right-handed. He throws a fastball in the mid-90s, and has three other pitches. Last year he threw two-thirds of his pitches for strikes and posted baseball’s third-lowest contact rate, behind only Craig Kimbrel and Kenley Jansen. He allowed 13 runs in 60 innings.â†µ
Now you’re familiar with Greg Holland. Losing Joakim Soria sucks, but Greg Holland looks kind of amazing.
