The San Francisco Giants have brought back pitcher Derek Holland on a one-year deal with a team option for 2020. He’s guaranteed $6.5 million next season. The buyout on the option is $500,000. If the option is picked up he could make as much as $15 million over the next two seasons, though 2020’s salary would be subject to various incentives.
Holland, 32, posted a 3.57 ERA and 169/67 K/BB ratio in 171.1 innings in 36 appearances (30 starts) this past season for San Francisco. It was his best season since 2013.
