OAKLAND, Calif. -- The Texas Rangers have lost a second member of their Opening Day rotation due to injury as left-hander Derek Holland has been put on the disabled list with left shoulder fatigue. The club has purchased the contract of right-hander Tanner Scheppers from Round Rock. To clear room on the 40-man roster, the club designated John Gaub for assignment. Right-hander Alexi Ogando, who made the All-Star team last year as a starter, will take Hollands rotation spot for Sundays game against San Francisco. Holland started Tuesday but lasted just 5 13 innings and said he was bothered by fatigue from a virus hes been battling for more than two weeks. His fastball velocity was down but he said his arm was fine after the start. Holland is 5-4 with a 5.10 ERA. Scheppers was the closer for Round Rock. He had nine saves and a 3.72 ERA for the Express. The Rangers put right-hander Neftali Feliz on the disabled list last month with a sprained right UCL ligament. Scott Feldman repl...

Rangers place Derek Holland on DL

The Texas Rangers have placed left-hander Derek Holland on the 15-day disabled list because of a fatigued left shoulder. Holland (5-4) has been dealing with a stomach virus that has caused him to lose 10-15 pounds over the past couple of weeks. The move was made before the series finale Thursday in Oakland. It is retroactive to Wednesday, a day after Holland pitched 5 1-3 innings...

MRI shows no shoulder damage for Rangers' Holland

An MRI on the left shoulder of Texas Rangers starting pitcher Derek Holland showed no structural damage, the team said Friday. Team officials said they believe Holland's lack of shoulder strength is related to a stomach virus that ailed him last month, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported. Holland, who has lost 15 pounds, has been told by Dr. Keith Meister not to throw for...

Ailing Holland still strong enough to beat A's

After his starting pitcher saw a precipitous drop in velocity Tuesday, Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington was asked if Derek Holland were healthy. "Depends on what you mean by healthy," Washington said. Turns out, Holland isn't healthy, but then, again, he isn't hurt. After a 6-3 win over Oakland in which Holland saw his fastball velocity drop from nearly...

Rangers’ Rotation Thins Out With Holland Injury

It’s been a rough few weeks for the Rangers. They got thumped by both the Mariners (21-8) and Athletics (12-1) within the last week and are just 21-22 since an eight-game winning streak in the middle of April. Texas has already lost Neftali Feliz for an extended period of time due to an elbow sprain and today they lost another young hurler, southpaw Derek Holland with left shoulder...

Rangers push back RHP Yu Darvish's next start

Yu Darvish's next start has been pushed back two days by the Texas Rangers to give the Japanese right-hander extra rest. Rangers manager Ron Washington said before Friday night's series opener at San Francisco that the decision had nothing to do with Darvish's last start. Instead, Washington said, he wanted to give Darvish the same kind of rest he has given other starters...

Lewis is lights out, Rangers are shut out

Well, it’s over.  The no shutout streak. For the first time this season, the Rangers were shut out tonight. In Oakland of all places.  By Bartolo Colon. Who hasn’t pitched a shutout since 2006. Yeah, I don’t even know. On a night when Colby Lewis not only didn’t give up any home runs, but also only gave up two runs total, it would have been nice if the offense could have...
