The Kansas City Royals have had a sincere focus in building up their bullpen for the 2012 season, and general manager Dayton Moore continued to fulfill his promise to improve the pitching staff by re-signing two emerging talents already on the club.
The Royals reached an agreement on one-year deals with Greg Holland and Louis Coleman on Wednesday. Holland has spent his first two seasons in the majors with the Royals as the reliever posted a 5-2 record with a 2.97 earned run average in 61 appearances last season. Holland also recorded four saves in 78 2/3 innings pitched.
Coleman's rookie season with the Royals was a successful one, as his 2.87 earned run average in 48 appearances looks to be built upon as in 2012 the Royals will look to the reliever in more hold situations.
