Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - The Texas Rangers have placed pitcher Derek
Holland on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 6, with left shoulder
Holland has pitched to a 5-4 record with a 5.10 earned run average in 12
games, including 11 starts, for the Rangers this season. He picked up the win
in his last outing on Tuesday in Oakland.
It will be the 25-year-old lefty's second stint on the DL during his four-year
career. He is eligible to return June 21.
To fill the roster spot, Texas purchased the contract of pitcher Tanner
Scheppers from Triple-A Round Rock.
Scheppers, who will make his major league debut when he appears in a game, has
a 1-2 record with a 3.72 ERA in 25 appearances out of the bullpen for Round
Rock this season.
The Rangers also designated pitcher John Gaub for assignment on Thursday to
make room for Scheppers on the 40-man roster.
