Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland (knee) will throw live batting practice this weekend and then leave for a rehab assignment after the All-Star break. He is tentatively scheduled to make his first start for Triple-A Round Rock Wednesday, July 27, where he is expected to throw approximately 35 pitches.
Fantasy Tip: Holland could return in the middle of August, in a best case scenario. The Rangers have no reason to rush Holland back, but he could still provide a boost to fantasy owners during their stretch drive. He is worth considering in mixed leagues and should be owned in all AL-only formats.

Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland (knee) will throw a bullpen session Sunday, June 8, and then do fielding practice Monday, June 9. If everything goes well, he could embark on a rehab assignment.
Fantasy Tip: The Rangers could certainly use Holland's help in their battered starting rotation. He'll immediately jump back in the rotation when he's ready. Holland is probably available in a wide range of leagues, so you should start considering stashing him in a DL spot soon.
