Report: Nationals close to bringing back RHP Holland
Field Level Mediaon
Greg Holland could be on his way back to Washington.
The Nationals and Holland, released by the Arizona Diamondbacks on Sunday, were working toward a contract, MLB.com reported on Monday.
Holland was designated for assignment after going 1-2 with a 4.54 ERA and 17 saves with the Diamondbacks this season.
In 21 1/3 innings with the Nationals to end the 2018 season, Holland was highly effective, going 2-0 with a 0.84 ERA.
Bullpen woes have been a bugaboo for Washington this season. The Nationals attempted to overhaul their relief corps at the trade deadline, picking up Daniel Hudson from the Toronto Blue Jays and Roenis Elías and Hunter Strickland from the Seattle Mariners.
