Derek Holland was tremendous in Friday's no-decision against the Braves, surrendering just one run on eight hits over seven innings.

Derek Holland makes his case for 2015

ARLINGTON, Texas — This is the Derek Holland the Texas Rangers have missed for nearly five months. We have seen quality efforts from Yu Darvish and Colby Lewis this season and inconsistency from a bunch of young kids and spot starters. Holland, meanwhile, was plying his trade in Triple-A and Double-A, rehabbing from knee surgery and finding his command. Friday night, Holland continued his strong progression in the final weeks of the season by pitching seven innings, allowing one run on eight hits.

Base Hits: Holland faces favorite team

ARLINGTON, Texas -- If you want to know how players find their favorite teams, just ask Texas Rangers left-hander Derek Holland: He watched TBS. Holland, who grew up in Newark, Ohio, watched Atlanta Braves game on television and became a big fan. His brother watched WGN and started loving the Chicago Cubs. Holland faces the Braves for the first time Friday night at Globe Life Park. “I was a huge Braves fan and Chipper Jones was my batting idol and I wanted to be like Chipper Jones and that’s why I’m still a switch-hitter,” Holland said.

Derek Holland continues comeback

ARLINGTON, Texas – Derek Holland doesn’t play the What-if game. He’s not going there with you and doesn’t care to review what might have been if he hadn’t tripped over his dog at the top of those steps this winter. It’s not a joking matter about what happened to the Rangers left-handed starter. He suffered a severe knee injury requiring microfacture surgery. The Rangers had no thoughts regarding his return. He kept fighting to comeback as his team struggled with its own injuries and inconsistencies.

Rapid Reaction: Rangers 1, Mariners 0

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Imagine if that dog hadn't been trying to play around with Derek Holland at the top of the stairs this winter. The Rangers' starting rotation has been a mess with inconsistency and injuries. Holland was recovering from left knee surgery and wanted to return. He didn't care that the Rangers were on pace to lose 100 games. He just wanted to help out. He wanted to let everyone know not to forget about him and the rehab starts in Round Rock and Frisco meant something to him.

Pregame Notes: Derek Holland activated

HOUSTON -- In a series of moves, the Rangers activated left-handed starter Derek Holland on Saturday afternoon from the 60-day disabled list. Holland has missed all of the season recovering from left knee surgery. He will make his season debut Tuesday in Kansas City. To make room on the 40-man roster for Holland, the Rangers designated 1B/outfielder Mike Carp for assignment. Carp struggled all season when he was acquired in a waiver wire claim Aug 3.

HOUSTON – The Rangers will activate left-handed starter Derek Holland from the disabled list and pitch him next Tuesday night against Kansas City. Holland made his sixth and final rehab start on Thursday night for Triple-A Round Rock, to test his control, make sure his back and knee were fine and to build more arm strength. Holland lasted 5 2/3 innings, allowing four runs, three earned as he threw 98 pitches.
