Derek Holland’s second rehab start didn’t go so well

Rangers left-hander Derek Holland was supposed to throw three innings Monday night in his second minor-league rehab start at Triple-A, but instead he lasted just one inning as he comes back from knee surgery.

Holland allowed four runs, including back-to-back homers, and needed 42 pitches to record three outs. If there’s any good news from the outing it’s that Calvin Watkins of ESPN Dallas says he was clocked in the mid-90s. In fact: “Both home runs came off 94 mph fastballs.”

Holland called it “an upsetting start” on the heels of throwing two scoreless innings in his first rehab appearance last week. Expect the Rangers to use most of the allotted 30-day rehab window for Holland, who last pitched in the majors on September 28, 2013.

    “Holland, who last pitched in the majors on September 28, 2013.”

    That phrasing is kind of odd… like he’s been away for a long time, when it’s just been this season.
