Nationals sign former closer Holland
The Washington Nationals agreed to terms on a deal with recently released right-handed reliever Greg Holland on Tuesday.
Holland, 32, was cut by the St. Louis Cardinals last week after posting a 7.92 ERA in 32 appearances with the club. He joined the Cardinals on a one-year, $14 million contract in late March after tying for the National League lead in saves last season with 41 for the Colorado Rockies.
Signed to be the Cardinals' closer, Holland has had no saves this season, blowing three chances.
The Nats also announced right-hander Jefry Rodriguez joined the club as its 26th man for the doubleheader. Rodriguez started the first game and allowed one run on three hits in five innings, earning his first major league victory.
