Rangers' Holland likely headed to disabled list

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) - Texas Rangers left-hander Derek Holland is likely headed to the disabled list because of mild inflammation in his left rotator cuff.

The pitcher left in the second inning of his start Sunday night in Minnesota. Holland returned to Texas and was examined Monday by team physician Dr. Keith Meister.

The Rangers made no official move Monday, an off day. They open a three-game series Tuesday in Chicago against the White Sox.

Meanwhile, Holland will remain in Texas and won't throw again for at least three to five days.

Right-hander Pedro Strop could join the Rangers in Chicago. Tommy Hunter, at Triple-A Oklahoma City since being slowed in spring training by a left oblique strain, could start when Holland's next turn comes up.
