Derek Holland, working his way back from microfracture surgery on his left knee, could begin a rehab assignment in the coming days if Monday’s workout goes swimmingly, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. The Rangers have been cautious with the rate at which they bring Holland along, but he seems to be on a good trajectory now.

Holland suffered the injury in January when he tripped over his dog on the stairs in his home. It was the start of an injury plague that would ravage the Rangers — Holland is presently one of 12 Rangers on the disabled list. If things go as planned, however, Holland could rejoin the team towards the end of the month or at the beginning of July.

Holland stood out last season after finishing with a 3.42 ERA with a career-best 189/64 K/BB ratio in 213 innings over 33 starts.

    I don’t buy the dog on the stairs story, but DO believe it was the hockey game the day before that did it. This idiot has a million dollar arm, but the maturity of a 12 year old.

    And he like to throw his change-up belt high, apparently to watch it sail over the outfield fence.
