Texas Rangers pitcher Derek Holland will be activated from the disabled list to start Wednesday against the Seattle Mariners after recovering from a shoulder injury, according to the team's official website. Holland, who has not pitched since April 10 when he left his start after just one inning, has thrown multiple rehab starts with Triple-A Round Rock and expressed that he was ready to return after Saturday's outing. “I’m ready,” Holland said after striking out eight in five innings. “It’s their [management's] decision, but I know I’m ready.” The 28-year-old had a career year in 2013 when he posted a 3.42 ERA with 189 strikeouts in 213 innings, but he has been limited to just six starts in the last two seasons because of knee and shoulder problems. Holland is expected to slot into the front end of the rotation and will provide a boost as the team battles for a playoff spot.

Texas Rangers pitcher Derek Holland will make what could be his final rehab start Friday as he continues to recover from a shoulder injury, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Holland has not pitched in the majors since April 10, but he threw 63 pitches in Sunday's rehab start for Double-A Frisco and is expected to increase his workload Friday. The 28-year-old allowed three runs and eight baserunners Sunday, but he seemed pleased with how his arm felt. “It’s their call, but hopefully they agree that I’m ready,” Holland said Sunday. "I felt good... strong... my arm is good to go. I don’t read into the (pitching) lines. It’s all about me getting prepared for the big leagues, not to be prepared for Double- or Triple-A.” If Holland's rehab start Friday goes as planned, he is expected to rejoin the major league rotation next week.

Texas Rangers pitcher Derek Holland will make at least two more rehab starts while recovering from a shoulder injury, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Holland threw just one inning this season before leaving his first start April 10 against the Houston Astros as a result of the injury, but he was able to reach 95 miles per hour with his fastball in his second rehab start Tuesday. “It’s really encouraging,” pitching coach Kevin Banister said after the outing. “It’s still how he feels today and how he responds. That will have an impact on what we do.” Holland will take his next turn Sunday after needing 54 pitches to retire just six batters. There is no word as to who Holland would replace in the Rangers' rotation upon his return. The Rangers are in third place in the American League West with a 54-53 record.
