    Suk Min Yoon

    Andrew Rickli of SportsReel Boston reports that the Rangers are showing interest in Korean right-hander Suk-Min Yoon. Just yesterday we learned that he had a throwing session in front of Orioles and Giants scouts this past Friday, so there could be a mini bidding war soon. Moon won the 2011 MVP in the Korean Baseball Organization…

    Free agent lefty Paul Maholm has drawn a lot less interest than expected, perhaps due to a rough second half of the 2013 season. Maholm, now 31 years old, finished with a 4.41 ERA after back-to-back sub-3.70 ERA seasons with the Pirates in 2011 and the Cubs and Braves in 2012. One would think it…

    Gerry Fraley of the Dallas Morning News shares the update: The Texas Rangers acknowledged on Tuesday that left-hander Derek Holland underwent micro-fracture surgery on the left knee last week.

    Derek Holland

    They say that dog is man’s best friend, but in Derek Holland‘s case, dog was his biggest enemy. As ESPN’s Richard Durrett details, Holland says his dog caused him to fall and injure his knee on the stairs. It was Holland’s dog, Wrigley, a boxer, who caused the starter to buckle on the stairs of…

    The Rangers were in for a shock yesterday when they learned that starter Derek Holland injured his knee in a fall at home, forcing him to undergo arthroscopic surgery to repair the torn cartilage.

    Chris Cotillo of MLB Daily Dish reports that the Rangers are “making progress” on a deal with free agent right-hander Jerome Williams. Talks have “intensified” since left-hander Derek Holland suffered a left knee injury which will likely keep him sidelined until midseason. Williams was non-tendered by the Angels in December after posting a 4.57 ERA…

    Oct 23, 2013, 1:40 PM EDT

    Derek Holland

    Rangers left-hander Derek Holland is a big fan of the original “Dumb and Dumber” movie and apparently the Farrelly Brothers invited him to be in the upcoming sequel “Dumb and Dumber To.” Here’s a picture of Holland and Jim Carrey on the set: Coolest dude around @JimCarrey thanks again for taking the time to visit…

    Cleveland Indians v Minnesota Twins

    The Indians won their ninth consecutive game this afternoon against the Twins, moving into the first of two AL Wild Card slots. They have now won 19 of 24 games since September 3, doing anything and everything necessary to secure themselves the opportunity to advance from the Wild Card play-in game. Starter Scott Kazmir was…

    Sep 27, 2013, 11:51 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim v Texas Rangers

The current standings: Rays: 90-70 (two in Toronto) Indians: 90-70 (two in Minnesota) Rangers: 89-71 (two vs. Angels) The Rays, who had won seven straight, were undone by some sloppy defense in…

    Comerica Park

    I went to Detroit over the weekend where I took in Saturday and Sunday’s Tigers-White Sox games. Such a wonderful time. Cool temperatures, no humidity, good company, good pitching, good food, good beer. It’s really all you could want. As I watched these games and hung around a city that, no matter what else you…

    Tigers starter Max Scherzer entered his final start of the first half a sterling 13-0 with a 3.06 ERA. With a victory over the Rangers tonight, he could have improved to 14-0, matching Roger Clemens’ historic start in 1986. The Rangers, however, had other ideas. Scherzer allowed three runs in the top of the third…

  14. Evan Longoria, Stephen Strasburg lead All-Star snubs

    Jul 6, 2013, 8:21 PM EDT

    Evan Longoria

    No matter how bloated the All-Star rosters get, it’s never hard to find imperfections. This year, two of the AL’s top 10 performers to date have been left off for no good reason. For some reason, manager Jim Leyland’s squad took three catchers and four second basemen, but just two from third base, which has…

    Yesterday, we took a look at what WAR had to say as far as midseason awards winners. Now, I’m making my own choices, starting with the Cy Young Awards. First, let’s get the charts out of the way, here are the top 10 in the AL by ERA and both versions of WAR. ERA 1.…

    Craig posted about Rangers lefty Derek Holland‘s adventure at a Counting Crows concert in New Jersey a few days ago.

    Yasiel Puig

    Dodgers 6, Phillies 4: Six straight wins for the Dodgers as Yasiel Puig singled home the tying and go-ahead runs in the seventh inning. Puig also smacked into the scoreboard in right field, so he’s basically Bryce Harper in multiple respects. That seventh inning rally was occasioned by the bases being loaded on a walk, a…

  20. Derek Holland dominates the Yankees

    Jun 27, 2013, 4:00 PM EDT

    Derek Holland

    Yesterday R.A. Dickey tossed a Maddux, which is defined as a shutout in under 100 pitches. Today it’s Derek Holland. Holland, who had given up four earned runs in each of his past three starts was doing no such thing today. He handcuffed the Yankees, allowing only two hits while walking two and striking out…

    Texas Rangers v St. Louis Cardinals

    When Major League Baseball schedules off-days for 22 of the 30 teams stuff is gonna go down. Stuff like Rangers pitcher Derek Holland going to Newark Red Bank, New Jersey to see the Counting Crows and then getting kicked out.

    With a three-run home run to right-center in the third inning and a solo shot to straightaway center in the fifth — his ninth and tenth of the season, respectively — against Rangers starter Derek Holland, Miguel Cabrera put himself in a tie with Hall of Famer Hank Greenberg with 331 career home runs.

  23. And That Happened: Wednesday’s scores and highlights

    May 9, 2013, 6:56 AM EDT

    Angel Hernandez, Bob Melvin

    Indians 4, Athletics 3: Angel Hernandez said there was not enough evidence with which to overturn the original call of double on Adam Rosales‘ would-be game-tying home run.  Of course, the replay clearly shows that it was a home run, with the ball hitting off the railing above the wall.  This is pretty simple: If…

  24. Shane Victorino is back in the Red Sox’s lineup

    May 3, 2013, 4:16 PM EDT

    Shane Victorino

    Shane Victorino managed to avoid the disabled list and has rejoined the Red Sox’s lineup after sitting out the past seven games with a back injury. Victorino is batting second and playing right field, where Daniel Nava has been the everyday fill-in. Nava has played so well while hitting .298 with a .932 OPS in…

  25. Angels drop struggling Josh Hamilton out of cleanup spot

    Apr 22, 2013, 5:29 PM EDT

    Oakland Athletics v Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim

    Teams have been pitching around Albert Pujols to get to Josh Hamilton, so the Angels have dropped Hamilton to No. 5 in the lineup tonight after using him in the cleanup spot for each of the first 17 games. That could be partly due to facing a left-hander in Derek Holland, but if Hamilton were…
