|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|

|Derek Holland scheduled for April 2 bullpen session |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(3/20/14) Rangers left-hander Derek Holland could take the first major step in his return from January knee surgery on April 2. That's when he plans on taking his first bullpen session, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. He said he will not return to game action until June.
Holland has been a solid starter for Texas since 2011. He boasts a 38-21 record in the last three seasons combined.
|Rangers place Derek Holland on 60-day DL |
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(3/3/14) The Rangers placed starting pitcher Derek Holland on the 60-day disabled list Monday, clearing room on the 40-man roster for Andy Parrino.
Holland had surgery in January after suffering a torn meniscus in his left knee. He fell over his dog on the stairway in his house. Holland is expected to be back in mid-summer.
|Unfortunately, all the strides Derek Holland made in 2013 won't be the story on him heading into 2014, not after he tore up the cartilage in his knee tripping over his dog this offseason. Known more for his green screen antics and Harry Caray (Will Ferrell?) impressions than his work on the mound, he resolved to be a pitcher first and an entertainer second last year, and while a fresh mindset can't make up for a lack of ability, his actually showed up in his numbers. He emerged as a top-of-the-rotation starter for the Rangers with a team- and career-high 213 innings and shaved more than half a run off his previous best ERA. By emphasizing his slider and changeup over what had always been a suspect curveball, Holland cut his home run rate in half from 2012, which helped him get his home ERA in line with his road ERA. But now, he'll have to recover from microfracture surgery before he can return to the mound. The All-Star break is a possibility, but that procedure is still new enough to the baseball world that you can't be too confident in the timetable. Holland and his Jon Lester-like potential may end up missing the whole season, so if you draft him at all, make sure it's late.
