Holland pitched a scoreless ninth inning to secure his 25th save of the season during Tuesday's 4-3 win over the Diamondbacks.

EDGE Analysis

Holland was a bit wild during his appearance, issuing a walk to Chris Herrmann and allowing him to reach second base on a wild pitch. The 31-year-old eventually got Jeremy Hazelbaker to strike out swinging before making an athletic play to run down a groundball and gun out Gregor Blanco at first base for the final out of the game. Holland continues to prove that he's one of the most elite closers in the league.

Holland converted his 24th save opportunity of the season Friday against the Giants despite giving up one run on two hits and a walk in the ninth.

EDGE Analysis

One night after blowing his first save over 24 tries in 2017, Holland bounced back to get the job done Friday, although he allowed the Giants to at least make it interesting. Holland still leads the majors in saves and will continue to get plenty of save chances with the way the Rockies are playing.

Holland (1-0) blew his first save of the season, but the Rockies scored in the bottom of the ninth inning while he was still the pitcher of record in Thursday's win over San Francisco.

EDGE Analysis

The likelihood of Holland converting every save of the season was low, and he's now 23-for-24 in save chances with a 1.40 ERA, 0.94 WHIP and 11.9 K/9. The veteran remains a high-end relief option in all fantasy settings, and grabbing the win was a nice bonus Thursday.

Holland escaped a bases-loaded jam in the ninth inning Friday to record his league-leading 23rd save of the season in a 5-3 win over the Cubs.

EDGE Analysis

After walking the bases loaded with one out, Holland got Ben Zobrist to pop up and struck out Jason Heyward to end the ballgame. The 31-year-old threw a season-high 26 pitches in the outing and given how careful the Rockies have been with their closer in his first year back from Tommy John surgery, Holland will likely be unavailable Saturday at the very least.

Holland picked up his 21st save of the season Sunday against the Padres, striking out one of the three batters he faced.

EDGE Analysis

The right-hander needed just nine pitches to get through the ninth Sunday. Holland leads all of MLB in saves, with the next closest, Craig Kimbrel, at 16. It's been a spectacular season for Holland, whose also a feel good story after undergoing Tommy John surgery.

Holland pitched a scoreless ninth inning to collect his 20th save of the season during Thursday's win over Seattle.

EDGE Analysis

Holland is now five saves clear of Craig Kimbrel's 15 for the league lead, and the Colorado closer sports a 1.31 ERA, 0.82 WHIP and 12.6 K/9. The Rockies are battling for the division lead in the NL West, and because of their potent offense, they're never out of a game. Expect for the tough home park, it's a nice setup for Holland to continue providing elite fantasy numbers.

Holland pitched a scoreless ninth inning with two strikeouts to collect his 19th save of the season during Sunday's win over Cincinnati.

EDGE Analysis

With a 0.96 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 12.5 K/9 to go along with his 19 saves, Holland deserves mention among the elite closers in both the real and fantasy games. He's probably going to have some hiccups going forward, and especially considering Coors Field is his home park, but it'll take multiple collapses before his job is in any danger.

Holland struck out a batter to collect his league-leading 18th save of the season during Thursday's win over Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

The next closest closer has just 12 saves, so it's a sizable gap atop the leaderboard for Holland. He's also posted a 1.02 ERA, 0.79 WHIP and 7.5 K/9 while also turning in scoreless appearances in 18 of 19 outings. With a perfect 18-for-18 conversion rate in save opportunities, Holland has re-established himself as an elite reliever after missing all of 2016 following Tommy John surgery.

Holland retired the only batter he faced Tuesday to pick up his 17th save of the season in a 7-3 win over the Twins.

EDGE Analysis

Jake McGee started the ninth inning and gave up a one-out double to Jason Castro before Chris Gimenez also reached base on a wild pitch while striking out on what should have been the final out of the game. With the tying run now on deck, Holland came in and got Brian Dozier to pop up. The former Royal is now a perfect 17-for-17 on save chances this year with the Rockies and is proving to be one of the bargain free agents of the offseason.

Sunday's outing also marked Holland's ninth straight scoreless appearance as well as the third perfect outing in his last four appearances, bringing his ERA and WHIP down to career-best marks of 1.06 and 0.82, respectively.
