Rangers | Derek Holland plays catch Friday

Fri, 08 Jul 2016 17:08:36 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland (shoulder) said he felt great after making 25 throws while playing catch Friday, July 8. He has not yet resumed throwing off a mound and no official timetable exists for his return.

Fantasy Tip: The 29-year-old southpaw is 5-5 with a 5.20 ERA through 14 starts this season and isn't worth stashing outside of AL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues. DFS owners should also avoid using him until he can prove that he is both healthy and effective.

Rangers | Derek Holland not throwing yet

Wed, 06 Jul 2016 17:04:27 -0700

Updating a previous report, Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland (shoulder) has not yet resumed throwing, according to manager Jeff Banister. There is no official timetable for his return.

Fantasy Tip: Holland should not be viewed as anything more than a low-end starting option in AL-only and cavernous mixed fantasy leagues because of his high WHIP and low strikeout totals. The 29-year-old left-hander went 5-5 with a 5.20 ERA in 14 starts before landing on the disabled list two weeks ago.

Rangers | Derek Holland still not throwing

Tue, 28 Jun 2016 15:42:24 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland (shoulder) will play catch sometime this week. During his upcoming rehab assignment, Holland will work on eliminating some pronation with his wrist at the end of his fastball delivery that has led to a fastball that drifts back into the hitting zone and eliminating some of the "fall off" that he has in his delivery that may also lead to lack of command, according to pitching coach Doug Brocail.

Fantasy Tip: With a 5.20 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 5.3 K/9 this season, the pre-injury version of Holland wasn't overly fantasy relevant. Be careful of relying on him as anything more than a low-end option in cavernous mixed and AL-only leagues. Stay tuned for updates.

Rangers | Derek Holland won't be back before break

Mon, 27 Jun 2016 14:32:42 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland (shoulder) is not with the team during their road trip, and manager Jeff Banister said it's unlikely that Holland will pitch before the All-Star break.

Fantasy Tip: Holland has a 5.20 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and only 5.3 strikeouts per nine innings for the Rangers this year in 14 starts. His inability to miss bats frequently doesn't make him very attractive to fantasy owners outside of AL-only leagues when he's healthy and in the rotation.

Rangers | Derek Holland placed on DL

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 13:48:27 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day disabled list with should inflammation Wednesday, June 22.

Fantasy Tip: Holland's fantasy value is hanging by a thread, and he is only viable as a stash candidate in cavernous mixed and AL-only setups given his 5.20 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 5.3 K/9 through 14 starts. Stay tuned for updates.

Rangers | Derek Holland doesn't last long

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 23:51:52 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland allowed five runs -- four earned -- on four hits in 3 2/3 innings against the Oakland Athletics on Wednesday, June 15. He walked three and struck out three.

Fantasy Tip: This was Holland's second poor outing in a row. After yielding just seven runs in 25 2/3 innings over his previous four starts, Holland has surrendered nine earned runs in 8 2/3 innings during his last two. The southpaw has been all over the map this season, making him someone that's really only worth the headache in AL-only setups.

Rangers | Derek Holland pushed back

Wed, 25 May 2016 11:50:10 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland will have his next start pushed back two days to Tuesday, May 31, to keep everyone in the rotation on a five-day schedule.

Fantasy Tip: Holland will take on the Cleveland Indians, and he has been better of late. He has lowered his ERA nearly a run to 5.21 in his last two starts. He'll be pitching on an entire week's worth of rest, and rust could be an issue. He's not a strong option outside of AL-only depth for now.

Rangers | Yu Darvish in play for Sunday

Wed, 18 May 2016 10:07:38 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish (elbow) could possibly make his first start of the season Sunday, May 22, against the Houston Astros. SP Derek Holland is the probable starter for the game.

Fantasy Tip: Holland has struggled, and the team could bump him from the rotation or bump Saturday's starter Cesar Ramos and put Holland there. Darvish is a fantasy ace and should be activated whenever he's ready. As for Holland and Ramos, they're AL-only depth at this point.

Rangers | Derek Holland has outing to forget

Thu, 05 May 2016 18:23:45 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland (3-2) allowed a career-high 11 runs on 11 hits over 2 2/3 innings in a loss to the Toronto Blue Jays Thursday, May 5, with three walks and no strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: This was by far Holland's worst start of 2016 and the first outing this season where he did not make it through at least six innings. He will look to bounce back in his next start versus the Chicago White Sox Tuesday, May 10.
