Rangers LHP Derek Holland damages his left knee in a fall at home. He had surgery today and is out until possibly mid-season.
Rangers GM Jon Daniels said this won't spur the team to sign a "big ticket" pitcher, such as Masahiro Tanaka. Rather, he said Holland's replacement will likely come from within the organization, such as Robbie Ross. This is a big deal for the Rangers, Holland was coming off a career-best season in which he posted a 3.42 ERA in 213 innings of work.
