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.

Rangers | Derek Holland OK in first start

Fri, 08 Apr 2016 08:55:45 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland had an OK season debut Thursday, April 7, versus the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim, going five innings and surrendering three runs on four hits and two walks. He also had five strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Holland exhibited very notable potential as recent as the end of the 2014 season, but his ceiling appears to be on a downward trend since then. At this point, the veteran southpaw should just remain on fantasy radars until he gets into a groove. He's more suited for AL-only leagues right now.

Rangers | Derek Holland shines

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 14:38:19 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland threw five scoreless innings with seven strikeouts during his spring training start against the Chicago Cubs Wednesday, March 23.

Fantasy Tip: Holland has been limited to just 95 2/3 innings through 16 appearances over the past two seasons, so he is flying under the radar in most mixed drafts. However, his 3.98 ERA, 4.00 FIP, 1.29 WHIP and 7.6 K/9 over 94 games from 2011 through 2013 barely move the needle enough to make him anything other than a late-round flier on draft day. He has more AL-only value.

Rangers | Derek Holland says he's not fat

Wed, 17 Feb 2016 11:01:23 -0800

Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland said he hasn't gained weight this year despite contradicting reports that suggest he is out of shape. He said he currently weighs 215 pounds, which is the same weight he reported at in 2015. Holland is listed at 193 pounds on the roster. "I feel great the way I am. I'm comfortable and very confident with where I am. I am not chubby. I joked about it, but it's something that pisses me off, actually," Holland said.

Fantasy Tip: Plenty of risk with Holland after injuries have ruined his last two seasons. He can be extremely good or extremely bad when he's healthy, which shows further risk. The upside is now gone, but he's not a bad target for innings if he's healthy late in deep mixed affairs.

Rangers | Derek Holland starting Game 4

Mon, 12 Oct 2015 09:30:18 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland is starting against the Toronto Blue Jays in Game 4 of the division series Monday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Holland ($6,900, 13.8% of cap) is a pretty big gamble as your second starter on FantasyScore today against the Blue Jays, who had the highest OPS in the league this year against left-handed hurlers.

Rangers | Derek Holland on track for Thursday

Mon, 28 Sep 2015 15:41:29 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland (finger) threw a bullpen session Monday, Sept. 28, and while his finger is still a bit sore, he remains on track to pitch against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Thursday, Oct. 1, according to manager Jeff Banister.

Fantasy Tip: Holland ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) has only pitched 89 1/3 innings over the past two seasons, and the game Thursday will have a playoff atmosphere. View Holland as a high-risk, high-reward start at FantasyScore Thursday, and you shouldn't fret fading him entirely. He has allowed 21 runs through 22 innings over his past four starts, after all.

Rangers | Derek Holland hampered during game

Sun, 27 Sep 2015 00:15:06 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland was hit in his left hand by a ball off the bat of Houston Astros 2B Jose Altuve in the first inning, and Holland said it bothered him the rest of the day. Holland went on to give up seven hits and four runs in five innings.

Fantasy Tip: Holland ($7,200, 14.4% of cap) could have one more start left in him before any postseason play, so keep an eye on whether Texas skips over him if that hand is still an issue. As it is, Holland's FantasyScore price is a bit too high for the production you will get.
