The St. Louis Cardinals have signed free-agent closer Greg Holland to a one-year deal, according to The Athletic’s Ken Rosenthal.

Holland’s new deal will pay him $14M.

Holland led the National League with 41 saves in 2017 as a member of the Colorado Rockies.

The Rockies made an offer to Holland, but once he didn’t quickly accept they turned to Wade Davis.

Due to the signing of Holland, the Cardinals will forfeit their second-highest pick (their second-round selection) in the 2018 draft as well as $500K of international money.
