Greg Holland: the Royals All-Star?

A while back Greg Holland was on the Royals pre-game show and had some interesting things to say: he told former Royals closer, Jeff Montgomery, that he threw three pitches—fastball, splitter and slider. The fastball has hit 100 miles an hour on the radar gun and some people think it has a slight rise to its trajectory. The slider breaks right to left (from Holland’s point of view), the splitter breaks left to right. Once he’s ahead in the count, Greg tends to throw sliders to righties and splitters to lefties, but he also said there are games where he’ll mix that up.
