Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland (shoulder) said his left shoulder has responded well to treatment, and he'll likely throw a bullpen later this week before making his Cactus League debut. Holland was scratched from his outing in an intrasquad game Sunday, March 1, because of his shoulder.
Fantasy Tip: Keep a close eye on Holland this spring and how he bounced back from his injury-plagued 2014 season. If he doesn't suffer any setbacks with his shoulder, Holland will likely be a nice sleeper candidate at the end of mixed league drafts.

Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland (shoulder) has been scratched from the exhibition game Sunday, March 1, because of soreness in his shoulder. Holland said he will be fine and is taking a day off.
Fantasy Tip: It does not appear like Holland is dealing with anything serious, but owners should watch the situation over the next few days. Owners in deeper mixed league may consider selecting Holland in one of the later rounds of drafts if he stays healthy.

Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland (knee) has already thrown off a mound six times this spring, and he is eager to start spring training after tearing cartilage in his left knee a week into the 2014 season. "I feel great," Holland said. "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 returned last year to go 2-0 with a 1.46 ERA in six games.
Fantasy Tip: Ever since his breakout 2011 campaing, Holland has been rather lackluster. The knee ailment is fresh in everyone's minds, meaning you'll likely be able to get a real nice injury discount on the lefty late in deep mixed drafts. Texas isn't the best environment for a pitcher, but at Holland's price this year, it's hard not to take a stab at him.

Texas Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said the team is continuing to look for starting pitching even after the acquisition of SP Ross Detwiler. "We've got a number of internal options coming to compete for a spot, all of them that we like," Daniels said. "But you can never have enough and we'll continue having conversations about adding another starter." The Rangers already have SPs Yu Darvish, Derek Holland, Colby Lewis, Detwiler, Nick Martinez and Nick Tepesch on their roster and minor league SPs Alex Gonzalez and Luke Jackson could also compete for a job during spring training.
