Analysis: The former All-Star closer was clocked between 91 and 92 mph, considerably down from his top years with the Kansas City Royals. Still, Holland was pleased with the outcome. "I felt good and the ball was coming out of my hands," he said. "I am not worried about my velocity as far as that goes. I am more worried about how I feel when I release the ball and if everything is working." The 31-year-old is expected to open the season as Colorado's closer.
