The Colorado Rockies agreed to a one-year deal with two-time All-Star reliever Greg Holland, according to multiple reports Wednesday.

Yahoo Sports reported the contract is for $7 million guaranteed with incentives pushing the deal to between $10-14 million.

A two-time All-Star with the Kansas City Royals, Holland underwent Tommy John surgery late in 2015 and missed the 2016 season as a result. The 31-year-old right-hander has posted an 18-12 career mark with 145 saves and a 2.42 ERA in six seasons with the Royals.

Holland would be a boon for the Rockies' bullpen should he return to form. Colorado, which plays its home games at Coors Field, saw its bullpen post a major-league-worst 5.13 ERA in 2016.
