Holland (2-1) allowed three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out three over 6.1 innings to take the loss Sunday at the White Sox. Holland was only provided a single run of offensive support, and his quality start wasn't enough for him to be in a position to pick up a victory. He's yet to allow more than three earned run in any of his four starts, and he owns a 3.13 ERA to go along with a 1.13 WHIP. He'll make his next start Saturday against the Angels.
Holland (2-0) allowed two runs on five hits and a walk over five innings in a win Tuesday against the Astros. He struck out five. Holland was dodging bullets all game, as he scattered four doubles out of the five hits he allowed. He needed 105 pitches to get through the five innings and had trouble putting batters away, as the Astros fouled off 24 pitches against Holland. Holland has a 2.70 ERA with a sharp 14:5 K:BB in 16.2 innings thus far.
Holland's next start will be pushed back to Tuesday with the news that the Rangers' Sunday matchup with the Orioles has been postponed, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Holland was supposed to start Sunday, but their game against the Orioles was postponed due to inclement weather. Now Holland will now face the Astros on Tuesday instead.
Holland (1-0) allowed no runs on four hits and two walks in 6.2 innings, but struck out only four in Tuesday's 8-0 win over the Mariners. It took him 110 pitches to get through less than seven frames, as Holland struggled to put away hitters despite his overall effectiveness. Still, it's a positive to see the 29-year-old be trusted with such a heavy workload considering he's had to deal with major injury issues for the better part of the last two seasons. The former highly-touted prospect has lost most of his luster at this stage of his career, and is a risky play at home against the dangerous Orioles on Sunday.
