Holland, 33, forked over a pair of runs in a walk-off loss to the Marlins on Friday, marking the fourth time he’s allowed runs in nine appearances this month. He is now 17-for-22 in save situations along with a 3.51 ERA and a 40/21 K/BB ratio in 33 1/3 innings of work.
Lovullo hasn’t said who will be taking over the closer’s role. It’s possible he could go with a closer-by-committee approach. Given that Yoan López has been the best performer in the bullpen, however, he would figure to be the go-to guy in a majority of save situations.
