Greg Holland, back from a finger injury, pitched a scoreless ninth to pick up a win Thursday against the Mets.

Holland came into a tie game and was credited with the victory after the Rockies scored in the bottom of the ninth. The win was his second in 41 appearances this year.

Greg Holland (finger) could be available for Thursday afternoon's series finale against the Mets.

Holland suffered a cut on the back of his forefinger knuckle Wednesday in a kitchen accident and Rockies manager Bud Black described it Thursday morning as an "inning-to-inning" situation. In other words, if the Rockies need Holland to pitch Thursday to protect a tight lead they will probably try to use him. This is clearly not a long-term concern.

Greg Holland suffered a cut on his right finger in what is being deemed a "kitchen accident."

Holland is day-to-day moving forward. No word as to whether this mishap will have any impact on his availability for Wednesday's game against the Mets. Holland owns a 1.64 ERA and 50/18 K/BB ratio in 40 appearances this season.

Greg Holland nailed down his 33rd save of the season on Sunday afternoon against the Nationals.

Holland was called into the game after Mike Dunn loaded the bases in the bottom of the ninth and he shut the door on the Nats after giving up a run-scoring single to Anthony Rendon. That run, of course, was charged to Dunn. Holland boasts a 1.64 ERA in 40 appearances this season for the Wild Card-hunting Rockies.
Jul 30 - 7:04 PM

Greg Holland notched one strikeout in a scoreless ninth inning to earn a save versus the Nationals on Saturday.

He was sent out to lock down a two-run advantage in the final frame and got the job done without any drama. Holland has been one of the biggest surprises of the 2017 campaign thus far. Holland missed all of last year due to Tommy John elbow surgery and has come back to survive and thrive at Coors Field. He leads the major leagues with 32 saves and has blown only one opportunity. He has a 1.67 ERA with 50 strikeouts in 37 2/3 innings.

Rockies reinstated RHP Greg Holland from the paternity leave list.

Holland was away from the club for a few days to be with his wife Lacey for the birth of their child. He's active on Saturday and will get the ball should a save situation arise.

Rockies placed RHP Greg Holland on the paternity leave list.

Holland will be away from the club for the next few days to welcome a child with his wife Lacey. Rockies manager Bud Black will probably play the matchups if a save opportunity arises while Holland is gone.
Jul 26 - 4:05 PM

Greg Holland allowed an earned run, two hits and two walks over 1 1/3 innings in Saturday's game against the Nationals to hang on for his 31st save of the season.

Despite the earned run, Holland is still cruising along with a 1.72 ERA overall this season, even better than his career mark of 2.33. Holland has been one of the most dependable closers in the majors, and a tremendous asset to fantasy owners.
Jul 23 - 2:55 AM

Greg Holland struck out the side in a perfect 12-pitch ninth inning for his 30th save of the season Tuesday against the Padres.

Holland has converted six save chances in a row since a blown chance on June 15. This was his first perfect inning over the past four appearances, and it was the first time he struck out the side since May 14. The All-Star continues to pitch well, as he has 30 saves, a 1.53 ERA and 48 strikeouts over just 35 1/3 innings with just two homers allowed.
Jul 19 - 1:25 AM

Greg Holland worked around a single and a walk in a scoreless ninth inning Wednesday against Cincinnati for his 28th save of the season.

Holland got himself in and out of trouble, allowing Arismendy Alcantara to reach on a wild pitch despite a strikeout. However, he coaxed Billy Hamilton into a double play to erase that mistake. He then gave up a walk to Zack Cozart and a walk to Joey Votto to create more drama before Scooter Gennett grounded back to the mound to end the threat.
Jul 6 - 1:18 AM

Greg Holland worked around a walk and a wild pitch in a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday against the Diamondbacks for his 25th save.

After allowing a run in each of his past two appearances, including a blown save June 15 against the Giants, it was nice to see a scoreless frame. However, he issued another walk to give him eight free passes and eight strikeouts over eight innings in eight June appearances.
Jun 21 - 1:37 AM

Greg Holland allowed an earned run, two hits and a walk in a shaky ninth inning Friday against the Giants, but he held out for his 24th save of the season.

The Giants tagged him for his first blown save of the season in Thursday's game, and he has now yielded runs in back-to-back appearances for the first time since July 18-21, 2015 (he missed the entire 2016 season). Despite some uneven results lately he is on firm ground and not even remotely close to being in danger of losing ninth-inning duties.
Jun 17 - 3:23 AM

Greg Holland loaded the bases but escaped to capture his 23rd save in Friday's win over the Cubs.

Holland's control was all over the place in the inning, as he walked the bases loaded after striking out Kyle Schwarber to start the frame. However, he then got Ben Zobrist on a first-pitch pop-up and then set Jason Heyward down swinging to preserve the win. Holland has only been scored upon in two of 25 appearances this season.
Jun 9 - 6:14 PM

Greg Holland worked a scoreless ninth inning to nail down his league-leading 20th save Thursday in the Rockies’ win over the Mariners.

Holland issued a two-out walk to Boog Powell but pitched a clean inning otherwise. A frontrunner for Comeback Player of the Year, Holland has been nothing short of remarkable in his first year back from Tommy John surgery. Through 22 outings, he carries a stellar 1.31 ERA to go with an equally impressive 12.63 K/9. He’s been gold for the Rockies, who find themselves in a three-way tie for first in the NL West.
