Holland feels fine after short 'pen session

Holland feels fine after short 'pen session

ARLINGTON -- Rangers pitcher Derek Holland said he felt fine a day after cutting short a bullpen session because of shoulder pain.

Holland, who went on the disabled list with left rotator cuff inflammation on June 1, threw only 17 of 30 pitches in that first session since going on the DL.

"I feel good. It was just one of those things that was just precautionary," Holland said. "It wasn't anything to get too worried about."

Rangers manager Ron Washington isn't concerned, either.

"It wasn't bad. As soon as he said he felt something, they just shut him down for precaution," Washington said. "We've got to be very cautious with him. We'll just continue to work him and see how soon it comes back. But concerned? I'm not concerned. It's just a setback."

Holland will throw again Friday, and Washington said there are no plans to do an MRI. Holland was 2-1 with a 4.19 ERA in 19 1/3 innings with five starts before the injury.
