Former Royal closer Greg Holland to sign with St. Louis

  • Cardinals reportedly near deal with free agent closer Greg Holland, pending a physical

He also did not accept a qualifying offer - essentially a one-year deal for more than $18 million - preferring to test free agency.

Holland - a three-time All-Star who led the National League in saves a year ago - had 41 saves for the Colorado Rockies in 2017.

It was not immediately clear whether he must first retire from the Navy before becoming eligible to join the Cabinet. Jackson, the lead White House doctor, said on January 16 that President Trump's "overall health is excellent".

Less than two hours before the start of their season, the Cardinals found a closer. If the Cardinals complete the deal, they will forfeit their second-highest draft pick in June, now No. 43, and $500,000 of worldwide signing-bonus allocation for the 2018-19 signing period. The Cardinals opened spring training with the intention of using Luke Gregerson in the ninth inning, but the right-hander will begin the season on the 10-day disabled list with a strained hamstring. St. Louis' relievers posted a 3.81 ERA and lost 29 games, while posting just 43 saves as a unit. Injuries prevented him from pitching that October and he spent all of 2016 recovering from Tommy John surgery. Wacha recorded 158 strikeouts across 165 innings past year (30 starts) but finished the season 12-9 overall with a 4.13 ERA and a 1.36 WHIP. Not long after, Mark Saxon of The Athletic reported that the sides have reached terms pending a physical. Holland should slot in nicely as the team's closer, and he'll get the chance to reset his value for the winter. He will stay in Florida to pitch simulated games before making his first start for Philadelphia on April 8. Pitcher Kyle Zimmer, a 2012 first-round draft pick from USF, was designated for assignment by the Royals.
