FANTASY BASEBALL HOT STOVE NEWS: YANEEKS LOOKING INTO TRADING FOR GREG HOLLAND

The New York Yankees have make contact with the Kansas City Royals with regards to possibly acquiring former All-Star closer Greg Holland.  Holland is working his way back from last year's Tommy John elbow surgery but the Yankees sense a buy low opportunity since the Royals still have Wade Davis and Kelvin Herrera for the ninth inning.

Analysis:  Interesting.  The Yankees need to rebuild the back end of their bullpen after trading away Aroldis Chapman and Andrew Miller last summer and this would help in that regard as Holland was a top tier closer before his elbow went bad.  If he is totally recovered by the time the season begins, Holland is capable of challening for a ninth inning role if the team thinks Dellin Betances is better in setup.
