Rangers P Derek Holland (shoulder) to miss two months


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2015) Rangers pitcher Derek Holland is expected to miss two months after suffering a subscapularis strain in his left shoulde on Friday against the Astros, according to MLB.com

"I'm beat up about this," Holland said. "I felt it on the last warmup pitch and I just wanted to make sure I got through the inning. Everything was great in the 'pen. I joke around about it now with [catcher Robinson] Chirinos. I was spotting up, everything was good, ball was coming out great and then to come out here and throw the first pitch and have it go down the drain like that, it crushes you."

Holland is unlikely to throw for at least four weeks. From there, Holland will concentrate on rebuilding his arm strength. His velocity dipped under 90 mph in Friday's 5-1 loss to the Astros, which was concerning to the Rangers.

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."
