Royals' Holland mum on contract discussions

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Royals pitchers and catchers report to Arizona for the start of spring training on Friday, and that presumably means All-Star closer Greg Holland will be there.

Of course, there's a little business that still needs to be finished.

Holland is eligible for arbitration and the two sides have yet to reach an agreement. He asked for $5.2 million after going 2-1 with a 1.21 ERA and 47 saves, while the Royals offered $4.1 million. Either way, it's a big bump from the $539,000 he made last season.

The Royals would not disclose when his arbitration hearing will take place, so it's unclear when a deal would need to be reached. Hearings run through Feb. 21.

Holland did say he'd welcome a long-term deal, but he's staying out of those talks.
