2020 Fantasy Outlook
Holland wasn't able to follow up a surprisingly effective 2018 season, finishing 2019 with an ERA north of 6.00 for the second time in three years. The lefty struggled to a 5.90 ERA in seven starts and 24 relief appearances for the Giants before being designated for assignment in late July. The Cubs acquired him for cash considerations, but he fared no better for his new team, allowing 12 runs in 15.2 innings of work. He finished the year with a combined 6.08 ERA over 84.1 innings. His 21.8% strikeout rate was acceptable, though his 12.0% walk rate was quite poor. Now 33 years old, there's little reason to expect much from Holland this year. His 3.57 ERA from 2018 looks like a fluke, as it's his only ERA below 4.90 in the last five seasons. He needs to bounce back a moderate amount just to be a fifth starter and needs considerably more than that to be a significant fantasy asset. Read Past Outlooks
