Greg Holland Likely Back From Rehab In Time For Royals Game Saturday Against Red Sox

The Kansas City Royals have been hit hard by injuries on all parts on the roster. From the loss of Joakim Soria at the back of the pen for the year to position players like Salvy Perez and Lorenzo Cain, the Royals have yet to field the promising young team as they intended in 2012. Greg Holland will be a key part back in the bullpen once he’s available, and word is out that today might be that day as the team faces the Chicago White Sox in game two.

Holland has been out on rehab from a left rib injury in mid-April. Holland says he has felt good so far in his work at AA Northwest Arkansas.

"Both (rehab) outings felt good," he said. "I was able to execute what I wanted to do – get the ball down and throw strikes."

Ned Yost was ready to get Holland back as another option in a pen that’s been taxed at multiple times.

"When we get him back," manager Ned Yost said, "that will be a big boost to our pen. He’ll be in the seventh and eighth along with (Aaron) Crow and (Kelvim) Herrera in front of (Jonathan) Broxton."

The Royals hope to turn around their fortunes in today’s second game after being shut out in yesterday’s series opener against the AL Central rivals.
