Rangers post-ASB rotation

Derek Holland will get the first start for the Rangers following the All Star Break

Derek Holland has been one of the best pitchers in the American League, but nevertheless, has not been chosen to be a member of the 2013 All Star team.

However, because Holland is not going to be in the All Star Game, the Rangers are in a position to use him in their first game after the break.

The Rangers have indicated that Holland will start Friday, July 19, at home against the Baltimore Orioles, in the first game of the second half for the Rangers. Martin Perez is expected to start the second game of the series, and Ross Wolf is expected to start the final game of the series.

A four game set at home against the Yankees starts on July 22, and Yu Darvish is expected to be activated to start that game, with Alexi Ogando following Darvish, assuming his rehab goes well. If Ogando doesn't make that July 23 start, and if no other pitcher, such as Matt Garza, is acquired to make the start, then Justin Grimm will start against the Yankees on Tuesday.

Colby Lewis is supposed to start a rehab assignment this coming week, and he is expected to be ready to return in mid-August, with Matt Harrison expected to return in late-August. Jeff Baker will also be starting a rehab assignment this week, and should be ready to be activated from the disabled list during the Baltimore series.
