Jake Barrett designated for assignment

 

The Arizona Diamondbacks agreed to terms with RHP Greg Holland on a 1-year contract. To make room for Holland on the roster, the D-backs designated RHP Jake Barrett for assignment. The D-backs’ 40-man roster remains at 40.

Holland, 33, is 1 of 3 pitchers with at least 3 40+ save seasons since 2013, joining Kenley Jansen (3) and Craig Kimbrel (3), and ranks fifth in the Majors during that span with 169 saves, trailing only Kimbrel (244), Jansen (234), Aroldis Chapman (197) and Fernando Rodney (190).

The 3-time All-Star (2013-14, ’17) also ranks in the Top 20 of all relievers since 2013 in save percentage (5th, 90.9), opponent OPS (15th, .583), strikeouts per 9.0 innings (16th, 11.64), fewest home runs allowed per 9.0 innings (16th, 0.55), opponent average (18th, .199) and hits per 9.0 innings (19th, 6.45).

In 2018, Holland posted a 0.84 ERA (2 ER in 21.1 IP) in 24 games after signing as a free agent with Washington on August 7, and combined to go 2-2 with 3 saves, a 4.66 ERA (24 ER in 46.1 IP) and 47 strikeouts in 56 appearances with the Cardinals and Nationals. He was designated for assignment by St. Louis on July 27 and released on August 1.
