EDGE Analysis

Holland began playing catch before the All-Star break and has progressed to start long tossing Tuesday. He landed on the disabled list due to left shoulder inflammation, but will be out at least another month after he was transferred to the 60-day DL on Friday.

The Rangers transferred Holland (shoulder) to the 60-day disabled list Friday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Holland just resumed throwing last week and will need to complete several more steps before he is ready to resume pitching for the big league club, so the Rangers decided to move him to the 60-day disabled list in order to open a spot on the 40-man roster. Holland will now be sidelined at least through August 20, but he should be able to rejoin the Rangers' rotation sometime after that barring any setbacks in the coming weeks.

Holland feels great after finally being able to play catch for the first time since going on the disabled list, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Holland made 25 total throws, not pitches, on Friday. This was a big first step for Holland in his progression back from his shoulder injury suffered in late June. There is still no timetable on when his official rehab will begin, Holland is expected to rejoin the Rangers at some point in early August.

Holland (shoulder) has yet to resume throwing since leaving his June 20 start and isn't expected back until early August as a result, MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan reports.

EDGE Analysis

Holland is going to need multiple rehab starts once he's deemed healthy enough to do so, but it's far too early to tell exactly when a rehab assignment will begin.

Holland (shoulder) is not expected to return to the team until after the All-Star break, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth-Star Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Holland was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday with left shoulder inflammation after barely pitching into the fifth during his last outing. He has been struggling recently, lasting five innings or fewer in each of his past three starts and will look to rejoin the club around mid-July.

Holland was placed on the 15-day disabled list Wednesday due to left shoulder inflammation, TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Holland's 2015 season was marred by a nagging shoulder injury and now his shoulder issues have flared up again. He went just 4.1 innings in his most recent outing and it was clear he wasn't at full strength given that he allowed nine runs and a pair of walks during that start. There is no timetable for Holland's return at this time, but his absence marks yet another injury to the Rangers' pitching staff. Luke Jackson was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock to fill Holland's roster spot.

Holland lasted just 4.1 innings and allowed three runs on nine hits and two walks with four strikeouts in a no-decision Monday against Baltimore.

EDGE Analysis

Holland has lasted five innings or fewer in each of his past three starts and has watched his ERA balloon from 4.53 to 5.20 as a result. He has just 43 strikeouts in 72.2 innings and his inability to miss bats, particularly with runners on base, has been punished all season long. Holland has struck out more than four batters in just three of his 14 starts this year.

Holland didn't factor into the decision against the A's on Wednesday, giving up four hits, five runs (four earned) and three walks over 3.2 innings. He struck out three.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran southpaw didn't have it Wednesday, and has now given up 10 runs (nine earned) over his last two starts, after producing quality starts in his four prior trips to the mound. Holland's April was somewhat deceptive, as he finished the month with a solid 3-1 record and 2.48 ERA. Since that point, he's surrendered 35 hits, 33 runs (31 earned) and eight homers, while seeing his ERA rise to a bloated 5.14. He'll look to reverse course when he takes on the Orioles next Monday.

Holland (5-4) picked up the win against the Mariners on Sunday. He tossed seven innings, allowing just two runs on three hits while walking two and striking out six.

EDGE Analysis

The left-hander continued his fine season with his longest outing of the season on Sunday. You wouldn't know it by simply looking at his 4.53 ERA, but Holland has limited opponents to three runs or fewer in nine of 11 starts this season. He had two brutal performances that came back-to-back in early May that ruined his line. Although his strikeouts are down, the 29-year-old is on pace to challenge his career-high 16 wins in a season.

Holland (4-4) held Cleveland to one run on six hits and two walks with two strikeouts over six innings in a win Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Holland's pitch-to-contact approach worked, as he recorded another quality start despite drawing just four swinging strikes in 92 pitches. His inability to miss bats is largely driving his 4.78 ERA, and even if he finds the occasional start like this one, it will be hard for him to provide fantasy value until that changes. He has yet to strike out more than five batters in a start this season.
