Holland (shoulder) is currently scheduled to start Tuesday against the Reds, TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

While nothing is set in stone at this point, it looks as though Holland will make his first start since hitting the DL back in mid-June. The 29-year-old threw 75 pitches in Monday's rehab outing at Triple-A Round Rock, allowing four runs and five hits over five innings. He was initially expected to make one final rehab appearance, but that no longer appears to be the case.

Holland (shoulder) is hoping to pitch during the team's upcoming two-game set in Cincinnati next week, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The expectation (as of Wednesday) was the Holland would make a fourth rehab start, but apparently he's convinced the Rangers he'll be good to go against the Reds on a couple extra days' rest. Holland built his pitch count up to 75 during Monday's outing with Triple-A Round Rock, allowing four runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four batters over five innings.

Holland (shoulder) is expected to need one more rehab start before possibly rejoining the big league rotation on Aug. 25 against the Indians, the Dallas Morning News' Evan Grant reports.

EDGE Analysis

It had previously been reported that the Rangers might activated Holland to start Saturday's game in Tampa Bay, but that will not be the case. Despite Lucas Harrell landing on the DL Wednesday, the Rangers can take advantage of off days to go with a four-man rotation until late next week. If Holland makes it through his next rehab start fine, look for him to start next Thursday at home against the Indians and stick in the rotation going forward.

EDGE Analysis

Lucas Harrell's injury-shortened outing Tuesday could also pave the way for a Holland return Saturday, though the club has yet to decide if he'll need another rehab start. He allowed four runs on five hits and two walks in five innings on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Holland will make another rehab start Monday and could still conceivably come off the 60-day DL when first eligible next Saturday. The more likely scenario is a fourth and final rehab start next weekend however, coming off the DL in about two weeks.

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.
