365 MLB News: Greg Holland and Yonder Alonso

 Colorado Rockies: Closer Greg Holland to reject $15 million dollar player option for 2018, will test free agency

  • After missing all of 2016 with Tommy John Surgery, Greg Holland returned to baseball in 2017 and returned with a rock-solid performance. In 2017, Greg Holland broke the Colorado Rockies saves record with 41 saves which was tied with Los Angeles Dodgers closer Kenley Jensen for most saves in the National League. Greg Holland played the 2017 season under a one-year deal which is what he asked for during the offseason and now that the Rockies season is over, Holland will test the waters in free agency. Greg Holland is expected to have a solid market this fall and we should be expecting the Rockies, Giants, Nationals possibly the Mets and Mariners to all chase the 31-year old.

 Seattle Mariners: Impending free agent Yonder Alonso would like to return to Seattle in 2018

  • In an interview with Greg Johns of MLB.com, Yonder Alonso said that he would love to return to the Mariners in 2018. “I love it here, it’s awesome, a first-class group, and they treated me well. I’d love to be back here. I think the future here is very bright, and we’re very close to winning, and I would definitely want to be a part of that. Yonder Alonso was traded to the Seattle Mariners back in August but during his tenure, he posted below average stats. In 42 games, Alonso batted .265 with 6 home runs and 18 RBI’s a very rough outing after a very strong outing with the Athletics. Yonder Alonso will be entering a deep free agent 1st baseman class alongside Eric Hosmer, Logan Morrison, and Carlos Santana. It will be interesting to see what the market offers to him this fall.
