Holland feels good after playing catch

ARLINGTON -- Rangers pitcher Derek Holland said he felt good after playing catch Saturday, the first time he had done so since being injured.

"It went fine. He said he felt good," Rangers manager Ron Washington said. "He was definitely chirping [Saturday] about how good he felt."

Holland was placed on the disabled list last week after exiting his last start against Minnesota in the second inning with mild inflammation in his left rotator cuff.

Holland said he was planning on playing catch Sunday prior to the Rangers' finale with the Tampa Bay Rays.

Washington said that if Holland continues to feel well, he'll throw in the bullpen. No timetable has been set on that, however.

"Everything's OK so far," Holland said. "So far, so good. I don't know after that. I'm just taking it day-by-day."
