Profile: Holland is now three full seasons removed from his last (only?) good season. In the meantime, his skills have plunged while his ERA and WHIP have soared. Those with the faint hope of a resurgence were no doubt hoping the Holland-to-Pittsburgh rumors would come to fruition, but instead he landed with the White Sox which offers much less promise, though perhaps pitching coach Don Cooper has some ideas on how to fix him. Perhaps a role change is his next step if he can’t recapture some success in the rotation, but he is a long shot to return any fantasy value at this point. (Paul Sporer)

The Quick Opinion: Holland’s strikeout rate has dropped in each of the last three seasons and it wasn’t high enough to really sustain any drop and still be a positive. His ERA has approached 5.00 each of the last two years and he’s unlikely to be helped by a move to the White Sox. Relief could be in his future. Hard pass in all formats.
