Description: Rangers interim manager Tim Bogar implied pitcher Derek Holland (migraine) would start Sunday if the game has meaning according to Shannon Drayer of mynorthwest.com.
Insight: After Texas beat Oakland and Seattle won, the game has meaning in terms of which team captures the final wild card spot in the American League. The Rangers scratched Holland from Saturday's game due to a migraine, but he is feeling good enough to start Sunday. Holland has made five starts this year, all this month, and is 2-0 with a 1.31 ERA.

Description: Rangers pitcher Derek Holland pitched seven shutout innings on Sunday to capture his first victory of the season.
Insight: Holland returned from knee surgery on Sept. 2. In two starts, he has given up one run in 14 innings. He also has 11 strikeouts and no walks. Next up is the Braves. If you need pitching help, Holland can definitely supply some.
9/2/2014 11:31:00 PM
Description: Rangers pitcher Derek Holland pitched seven strong innings in his season debut Tuesday, allowing one run to the Royals in a no-decision.
Insight: Chances are fantasy owners did not keep a roster spot dedicated to Holland to this point and owners likely took the wait-and-see approach last week before picking him up for this start, so he is probably available in a lot of leagues. If you need pitching help, you could do worse.
8/30/2014 4:47:00 PM
Description: The Rangers have activated pitcher Derek Holland from the 60-day disabled list.
Insight: Holland has missed the first five months of the season after undergoing knee sugery. He will return to the starting rotation on Tuesday against the Royals, but he did not pitch well in his rehab assignment, so we wouldn't insert him in your rotation right away.

Description: Rangers pitcher Derek Holland (knee) will be activated from the disabled list after his next rehab start Thursday, according to Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.

He's recorded a 4.30 ERA and 22 Ks over 14 2/3 innings during his rehab assignment after going 10-9 with a 3.42 ERA, a 1.29 WHIP and 189 Ks in 213 innings last season.

Description: Rangers pitcher Derek Holland's knee surgery was a microfracture procedure to repair the cartilage behind his left kneecap, according to Richard Durrett of espndallas.com.
Insight: Holland said he hurt his knee when his dog ran up the stairs and tripped him. The lefty is expected to be out until midseason, though he said he believes he could return sooner than projected.

Insight: He had surgery on Friday and could be out until mid-season. Perhaps this will give the Rangers more incentive to make a competitive offer to free agent starting pitcher Masahiro Tanaka.

Description: Texas starter Derek Holland was dominant Sunday in a win versus Oakland.
Insight: The lefthander scattered four hits over eight scoreless innings. He finished the afternoon with 10 strikeouts and two walks. Holland's 3.02 ERA this season is more than a run and a half lower than the one he posted in 2012 (4.67).

Description: Rangers starter Derek Holland was the tough-luck loser Thursday against the Yankees. He was defeated despite allowing two runs over 7 1/3 innings.

Description: Rangers starter Derek Holland two-hit the Cubs and didn't walk a batter over seven scoreless innings Tuesday to pick up his first win of the season.
Insight: Holland has allowed 13 hits and four earned runs in 22 innings this season, a far cry from the 4.67 ERA he had in 2012. The left-hander's biggest issues last season were allowing homers (32 in 175 1/3 innings) and failing to strand runners (67.9% LOB). He has reversed both problems so far in 2013.

Description: The Rangers have suggested that left-hander Derek Holland try toning down the comedy act and put more attention on baseball. SOURCE: Fort-Worth Star Telegram
Insight: Being a goofball who is both seen and heard often works just fine when you go 16-5 with a 3.95 ERA and throw 8 1/3 scoreless two-hit innings in the World Series like he did in 2011, but not when you post a 4.67 ERA like he did last year.
12/3/2012 12:04:00 PM
Description: According to Fox Sports, the Rangers would be willing to part with lefthander Derek Holland if the team signs another starting pitcher this offseason.
Insight: Texas has spoken with Zack Greinke and Anibal Sanchez could be an option for them as well. The Rangers could deal Holland to Arizona as part of a trade for Justin Upton, a player Texas has coveted all offseason.
8/12/2012 10:17:00 AM
Description: Rangers starter Derek Holland turned in a superb outing Saturday against Detroit. Over seven and two thirds innings, the lefthander let in just one run on three hits. He walked one and matched a season-high with nine strikeouts.
Insight: Unfortunately 2011 Al Cy Young winner Justin Verlander pitched just as well for the Tigers (7 IP, 7 H, ER, 8 K's), so Holland was unable to add to his win total.
7/8/2012 12:03:00 PM
Description: Rangers starter Derek Holland returned from the disabled list and tossed a quality start in a no decision Saturday against Minnesota.
Insight: Holland (5-4, 5.05 ERA) allowed three runs on six hits in six innings. Holland has been more consistent than his ERA indicates, as he allowed eight runs in one start. If you remove that outing, Holland's ERA drops to 4.16. Expect a solid second half from the Rangers lefty.
7/4/2012 6:21:00 PM
Description: According to Drew Davison of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Rangers starter Derek Holland (shoulder) will return to start a game during Texas' series with Minnesota over the weekend.
Insight: Holland (5-4, 5.10 ERA) will likely start Saturday against the Twins. Texas is skipping right-hander Yu Darvish's final start before the All-Star break so he can get some extra rest, setting up Martin Perez, Holland and Roy Oswalt to start in the Twins series.
