Rockies closer Greg Holland is day-to-day due to a cut on one of the fingers on his throwing hand sufffered in a “kitchen accident,” Patrick Saunders of the Denver Post reports.

Holland, 31, has had a great comeback season after missing all of last season. He leads the majors with 33 saves and holds a 1.67 ERA with a 50/18 K/BB ratio over 38 1/3 innings.

“Kitchen accident” aside, the Rockies’ decision to ink him to a one-year, $7 million contract couldn’t have panned out better. The two sides hold a mutual option for 2018 worth $10 million with a $1.5 million buyout if Holland declines.
