Texas Rangers Pitcher Derek Holland Set for Two Rehab Starts With Triple-A Round Rock
Texas Rangers left handed pitcher Derek Holland is set to make a of rehab starts for triple a Round Rock. Holland will be assigned to the Round Rock Express on Wenesday, have him return to Dallas on Sunday for bullpen duty, and the return to Round Rock for his final triple-a start.
Holland has been out for nearly a month between a stomach virus that caused him to lose nearly 15 pounds, as well as a shoulder fatigue that was most likely brought on by his rapid weight loss and illness.
The Rangers starting pitching staff has been ravaged by injury in the last 6 weeks, with Alexi Ogando going down shortly after Holland did with a strained right groin, Neftali Feliz going down with "inflammation in his right elbow."
