Colorado Rockies closer Greg Holland is choosing to bet on himself on the free agency market.

Holland will not exercise his $15 million player option and instead become a free agent, according to FanRag Sports’ Jon Heyman.

Holland is represented by agent Scott Boras and according to Heyman’s report execs believed Mark Melancon’s $62 million, four-year deal could be the market for Holland.

Holland led the National League with 58 games, 41 saves and a 3.61 ERA after missing 2016 following Tommy John surgery.
