Rangers push back Derek Holland's start due to sorenes

Rangers SP Derek Holland: 'I want to make a statement' in 2015


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2015) Rangers starting pitcher Derek Holland is eager for the start of spring training, and perhaps a little more than most major leaguers since he missed most of the 2014 season due to a knee injury.

"You have no idea," Holland said, per MLB.com. "Last year I was really jacked up and excited. I felt it was going to be a big year. Things didn't go our way, but the dog days are over.

"I feel great. I worked my tail off this winter and the training staff did a great job getting me ready. I feel happy and confident. I expect big things this year."

Holland has certainly had his inconsistencies throughout his career. For instance, in 2011 he won 16 games, but he had nearly a 4.00 ERA and his WHIP was at 1.35. In 2013, he posted a career-best 3.42 ERA, but went 10-9 and had another high WHIP (1.28).

The left-handed hurler is aiming for a little more consistency in 2015.

"My expectations are high," Holland said. "There are still a lot of things I need to prove. I haven't hit my peak yet. I am not happy with the way my career has started off. It could be better. I want it to be better. I am tired of not being what I should be.

"I want to make a statement. I want to do something. I don't want to be a one-hit wonder. I want to be here a while and I want to make people notice me."
