The 31-year-old Holland recorded 41 saves in 45 opportunities for the Rockies this season en route to his third career All-Star selection. As for the Cardinals, they did a lot of closing by committee in 2017, so hopefully they won’t need to browse the market any further now that they have identified a potential target.
