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.
Insight: He was scratched from his last start Saturday, but he's ready to pitch Thursday. Holland had microfracture knee surgery in January and has missed the entire season. 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.
 
8/4/2013 7:02:00 PM
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).
 
7/25/2013 7:40:00 PM
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.
Insight: Holland has given up just nine homers in 141 innings this year after serving up 32 in 175 1/3 last year. That has helped him lower his ERA from 4.67 to 3.06.
 
7/13/2013 10:45:00 PM
Description: Rangers starter Derek Holland worked around five walks to beat the Detroit Tigers Saturday night.
Insight: The Rangers dealt Max Scherzer his first loss due to Holland's seven innings of one-run ball. The lefty, who is 8-4 with a 3.08 ERA and a 1.28 WHIP, has allowed just eight home runs in 125 2/3 innings after giving up 32 in 175 1/3 last year.
 
7/4/2013 9:45:00 AM
Description: Rangers starter Derek Holland struck out 10 Mariners over six two-run innings Wednesday night.
Insight: Holland was facing Felix Hernandez and both starters took a no decision. Holland has allowed nine hits and two earned runs while striking out 17 batters over his last 15 innings.
 
6/27/2013 9:30:00 PM
Description: Rangers starter Derek Holland completed his sixth career shutout Thursday against the Yankees.
Insight: He scattered two hits over nine innings. Holland's 3.14 ERA through 16 starts is the lowest of his career. His next start is Wednesday against the Mariners.
 
5/26/2013 9:53:00 AM
Description: Texas lefty Derek Holland struck out ten Saturday in a win against Seattle.
Insight: Holland surrendered two unearned runs over 6 2/3 innings. His ERA is down to 2.97, easily the lowest of his career.

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.
 
2/14/2013 10:14:00 AM
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.
 
6/29/2012 6:56:00 PM
Description: Rangers starter Derek Holland (shoulder) allowed one run over three innings Wednesday in his first rehab start with Triple-A Round Rock. The left-hander may be able to return after one more rehab start, according to the Dallas Morning News.
Insight: Holland (5-4, 5.10 ERA) will pitch again Monday, which would allow him to return to the Rangers for a start next Saturday against the Twins.
 
6/15/2012 6:44:00 PM
Description: Rangers starter Derek Holland (shoulder) threw Friday for the first time since being placed on the disabled list.
Insight: Holland (5-4, 5.10 ERA) played catch during batting practice and felt good. He's in the process of gaining back the weight he lost due to a stomach ailment.
 
6/12/2012 7:51:00 PM
Description: Rangers starter Derek Holland (shoulder) is regaining his strength after losing 15 pounds due to a stomach virus. Holland has already put on four pounds since going on the disabled list last week, according to Fox Sports Southwest.
Insight: Holland (5-4, 5.10 ERA) is hoping to return to the team when he's eligible to come off the DL June 21. He hasn't started throwing yet, and Rangers manager Ron Washington thinks Holland will need a rehab start.
 
6/8/2012 5:10:00 PM
Description: The MRI on the sore left shoulder of Rangers starter Derek Holland came back clean.
Insight: Holland (5-4, 5.10 ERA) lost almost 15 pounds while battling a stomach illness last month and it's clear that his shoulder weakness has more to do with that than any structural damage.
 
6/7/2012 1:41:00 PM
Description: Derek Holland has been placed on the 15-day DL with a sore left shoulder.
Insight: Holland (5-4, 5.10 ERA) lost almost 15 pounds while battling an illness last month and it's clear that his strength isn't where it needs to be right now. Consider this DL stint more of a rest period for Holland than a true injury. Holland should be fine to pitch again as soon as he is eligible to come off the disabled list.
