Derek Holland has been diagnosed with a "sub scapular strain" and is out at least 6-8 weeks. That combination of offspeed stuff he was throwing in the first inning was actually a steady stream of fastballs which he could not get any speed on. He will have another MRI in four weeks, after which he will begin a rehab and throwing program.
Here is the reality of this: Don't expect Holland back until the All Star break.
Ryan Rua will hit the DL tomorrow, which I would assume might give an intriguing opportunity to Carlos Peguero.
Choo will be considered day-to-day and will have a precautionary MRI.
Joey Gallo just had ankle surgery.
Yesterday I was urging Rangers fans to back away from that ledge. Today I join you.
