Royals DFA Billy Hamilton

The Kansas City Royals have designated Billy Hamilton for assignment.

You’re heard the phrase “that’s what speed do?” Well, Hamilton is a living example of what having only speed do: makes it really hard for you to stick on a big league roster.

So, where does he run off to now?

Diamondbacks DFA reliever Holland

PHOENIX (AP) — Relief pitcher Greg Holland, a three-time All-Star who led the National League in saves in 2017 with 41, was designated for assignment Wednesday by the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Holland, in his ninth season and first with the Diamondbacks, is 1-2 with a 4.54 earned run average in 40 games. He has 17 saves in 22 chances, but saw his ERA climb from 2.33 at the end of June to its current number.

For those who want a reminder as to how fungible most relievers are….
