The Rangers have asked Derek Holland to tone down his personality and turn down some interview requests.

The 26-year-old lefty is known for being a little goofy, and the Rangers want him to focus more on becoming a better pitcher after a down 2012 season. "It's less of the interviews and those kinds of things," Holland said. "It's taking a different approach to it, just carrying myself a little bit better. I'm still going to be the same guy I was before, just with more of a serious approach."
