Holds category

I am playing with Holds for the first time. I have 3 slots for starting RP. Right now I have 3 closers with another on the DL - Krod, Hoover and Santos (Janseen DL). Does it make sense to drop one for a pitcher to get holds? Should I carry a 4th RP just for the hold category? See roster below. Not sure who I would drop if any:

H2H - AVG, R, SB, 1B, 2B, HR, RBI, K, 3B BB,ERA, K,WHIP,W,L, SV, HLD

Jonathan Lucroy, Mil C  
Eric Hosmer, KC 1B  
Brandon Phillips, Cin 2B  
Hanley Ramirez, LAD SS  K  
Pablo Sandoval, SF 3B  
Ryan Braun, Mil OF  
Bryce Harper, Wsh OF  
Desmond Jennings, TB OF  
Billy Hamilton, Cin OF  
Billy Butler, KC DH  
Matt Cain, SF SP  
James Shields, KC SP  
Jon Lester, Bos SP  
Tony Cingrani, Cin SP  
Danny Salazar, Cle SP  
Tim Lincecum, SF SP  
Yordano Ventura, KC SP
Casey Janssen, Tor RP

Never like to punt a category. Watch Hoover, and if he doesn't perform or hold onto the closer job, pick up a holds guy. If he does hold it, I would still drop someone for a holds guy. There should be several good ratio holds guys on the waiver list. I'm on the fence with Hoover myself in one of my leagues.
