Holland makes first rehab start
ARLINGTON -- Injured Rangers pitcher Derek Holland made his first rehab start with Triple-A Round Rock on Wednesday, going three innings and giving up one run.

Holland worked a scoreless first and second inning before Dayton Buller hit his first home run of the year off the left-hander with one out in the third. Holland threw 39 pitches, 24 for strikes, gave up three hits and struck out one while walking two.

It was the first of at least two Minor League rehab starts for Holland, who will pitch again Monday when Round Rock faces New Orleans. He intended to throw around 50 pitches Wednesday and will look to throw between 75 and 80 on Monday. After that outing, the Rangers will decide whether to call him up.

The Rangers placed Holland on the 15-day disabled list on June 7 with left elbow fatigue. He is one of five Texas pitchers, including three starters, currently on the DL. Relievers Koji Uehara (lat strain) and Alexi Ogando (strained groin), along with starters Colby Lewis (forearm tightness) and Neftali Feliz (elbow inflammation) are on the DL and not expected to return before the All-Star break.
