Rangers push back Derek Holland's start due to sorenes
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(3/1/15) Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said the team pushed back Derek Holland's start due to normal soreness in his throwing shoulder, reports the Dallas Morning News.
Holland was scheduled to throw in Sunday's intrasquad game, but it will be pushed back to Monday as a precaution. Holland missed most of the 2014 season with a knee injury.
"I'm taking a day off," Holland said, per the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. "No biggie."
Rangers SP Derek Holland: 'I want to make a statement' in 2015
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(2/17/15) 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."
Derek Holland skips final start due to migraine headache
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/27/14) Rangers pitcher Derek Holland was scratched from his final start of the season Saturday night against the A's because of a migraine headache, per MLB.com. Scott Baker will pitch in his place.
Holland ends his season 2-0 with a 1.31 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP over five starts (34 1/3 innings).
Derek Holland picks up second win of the season
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(9/22/14) Rangers pitcher Derek Holland improved to 2-0 with a solid outing Monday night at home against Houston. He allowed three runs -- two earned -- on seven hits and one walk while striking out two over seven innings of a 4-3 victory.
Holland owns a 1.31 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP over five starts (34 1/3 innings). His final start of the season will come Saturday at home against Oakland.
Derek Holland allows one run in no-decision vs. A's
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(9/18/14) Rangers pitcher Derek Holland didn't factor into the decision Wednesday, giving up one earned run on four hits and three walks in 6 1/3 innings while striking out five in his team's 6-1 win over the A's.
Holland turned in his fourth straight strong start and actually saw his ERA rise despite the excellent line. The only run came on a single with two men on in the fifth inning, giving Holland four straight starts with one run or no runs since coming off the disabled list. He owns a 0.99 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 22:3 K:BB ratio in 27 1/3 innings. Hollard is scheduled to face the Astros Monday.
|2014 summary: After a breakthrough 2013 in which he emerged as a reliable middle-of-the-rotation option in Fantasy with a 3.42 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 8.0 strikeouts per nine innings, Derek Holland tripped over his dog on the stairs that offseason, tearing the meniscus in his left knee. Holland didn't take the mound until September but proved to be no worse for wear with the six appearances (including five starts) he got, consistently pitching deep into games with a 1.46 ERA.|
Playing time status: After an uneventful offseason, Holland is poised to reclaim his rightful spot just behind Yu Darvish in the Rangers starting rotation and doesn't really have anyone standing in his way. He had some shoulder issues early in his career, but with those long past, it wouldn't be surprising to see him bounce back with 200-plus innings.
2015 outlook: At a time in baseball when a 1.25 WHIP and 8.0 strikeouts per nine innings are normal, Holland isn't exactly a standout at starting pitcher, but he's clearly an asset there. After some control issues early in his career, he's proven to be steady from start to start and, despite the Rangers' struggles last year, should have a good offense backing him. You should be able to draft him after the top 60 starting pitchers are off the board, but he has the potential of a No. 3 starting pitcher in 12-team leagues.
