Derek Holland injured his left knee in a fall at home, Gerry Fraley reports. He underwent surgery earlier today to repair the damage, which will likely keep him out until at least mid-season.

Rangers GM Jon Daniels said this won't spur the team to sign a "big ticket" pitcher, such as Masahiro Tanaka. Rather, he said Holland's replacement will likely come from within the organization, such as Robbie Ross. Losing Holland is a big deal for the Rangers, as the lefty is coming off of a career-best season in which he posted a 3.42 ERA in 213 innings of work.

Derek Holland pitched his seventh career shutout Monday against the Astros for his first win since Aug. 4.

Holland was struggling like most of the Rangers this month, giving up 20 runs -- 17 earned -- in 19 1/3 innings. So, obviously, a start against the Astros was exactly what he needed. This one was decided early on, with the Astros eventually dropping their 10th straight by a 12-0 score. Holland's seven shutouts are a pretty remarkable total given that he has just 49 wins in all. He's 16th on the active list for shutouts. He's actually never had a complete game that wasn't a shutout.

Josh Donaldson socked a solo homer in the third inning, and a two-run double in the fourth that chased Holland from the nightmare start. He'll head into Wednesday's start against the Rays in Tampa Bay with a 3.40 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 174/63 K/BB ratio over 193 1/3 innings.
