|Royals open to trading top relievers |
|by Al Melchior | Data Analyst|
(11/25/13) The Kansas City Star reports that the Royals will listen to trade offers for any of their relievers, including closer Greg Holland. Though the team is reportedly looking for ways to limit their payroll, they are unlikely to trade Holland, but setup men Tim Collins and Aaron Crow are much more readily available.
Collins led the Royals with 21 holds, and he notched a 3.54 ERA and 52 strikeouts in 53 1/3 innings.
Crow, a one-time starting pitching prospect, registered a 3.38 ERA, 19 holds and 44 strikeouts in 48 innings.
