Report: Mets interested in Greg Holland

2 Comments

Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports that the Mets have recently discussed adding free agent reliever Greg Holland. Holland has remained available after turning down the Rockies’ $17.4 million qualifying offer in November.

Holland, 32, had a solid season with the Rockies last year, saving a league-high 41 games with a 3.61 ERA and a 70/26 K/BB ratio in 57 1/3 innings.

The Mets already have a formidable bullpen with Jeurys Familia, A.J. Ramos and Jerry Blevins. But as Ehalt notes, all three are eligible for free agency after the season. Adding Holland would give them a good building block for the 2019 bullpen and beyond, assuming they sign him to a multi-year contract. The Mets would have to forfeit their second-round pick and $500,000 in international signing money if they were to sign Holland before the draft on June 12.
