Rangers could send Derek Holland and Nick Martinez to bullpen


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer
(7/17/2015) The Rangers are in need of bullpen help and they could find that help from within. It's a possibility that pitchers Derek Holland and Nick Martinez could help Texas reinforce its bullpen, per MLB.com.

Martinez (5-5) was optioned to Triple-A Round Rock on July 2, and Holland is working his way back from the disabled list. Holland said he felt good after a bullpen session on Friday.

"I'm probably exaggerating, but it felt like a rocket shooting out of my arm," Holland said.

Holland's return from the disabled list could be expedited if he chooses to join the bullpen instead of a return to the rotation, which would demand a number of rehab starts in the minors. 

"You discuss all options," manager Jeff Banister said. "You don't leave any option off the table. But in the same vein, this guy has been a starter and been a dynamic starter. We'd like to get him back in the rotation."

Holland said he would embrace whatever role awaits him.

"I just want to play," Holland said. "I'm trying everything I can. I want to be a part of this team."

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. 

"I was hoping the radar gun was off or he would get loose," general manager Jon Daniels said.
