ARLINGTON -- Rangers left-hander Derek Holland threw for the first time since being placed on the 15-day disabled list with left shoulder fatigue June 7 before Friday's game against the Astros.
Holland, who was also suffering from a stomach virus, is unsure of when he will return, but felt good about the progress he has made. He will be eligible to come off the DL on Thursday, an off-day for the Rangers before they begin a 10-game homestand next Friday against the Rockies.
"I felt really good. Everything feels very comfortable," Holland said. "We're just working on some mechanical stuff, nothing too crazy. I can't really make a call. Today's my first day of playing catch so I can't say I'll be ready [Saturday]."
Righty Neftali Feliz, who was moved from the 15-day DL to the 60-day DL Thursday, is scheduled to throw Monday. He is one of three Rangers pitchers on the DL, joining Holland and righty Alexi Ogando, who suffered a strained right groin Sunday.
