Holland rips Giants’ brass, says he faked injury

SAN FRANCISCO — Giants pitcher Derek Holland has criticized San Francisco’s entrance workplace and says he faked an harm that led to a latest stint on the injured record.

Holland was demoted to the bullpen following a 5-Four loss to the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday night time then mentioned he has “no thought what they’re doing” within the entrance workplace.

The veteran left-hander gave up seven runs in 2⅔ innings Thursday throughout a 12-11 loss to Colorado, his first outing after happening the IL due to a left index finger bone bruise.

Holland mentioned he “did a pretend harm” and that he is “not completely happy about that.” He specified that his frustration is with the entrance workplace and never supervisor Bruce Bochy. He mentioned “they maintain altering a variety of the issues” and “on the finish of the day, I’ll do no matter they ask me to do.”

Farhan Zaidi, the group’s president of baseball operations, advised the San Francisco Chronicle later Saturday that the harm was professional.

“His use of the phrase ‘pretend’ in all probability comes from him feeling he may proceed to pitch with it,” Zaidi mentioned.
