Holt is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Athletics.

Holt's playing time has tailed off of late with Texas facing a slew of left-handed pitchers, but he was also on the bench Tuesday versus a right-handed pitcher (Seattle's Logan Gilbert) and may have lost hold of a strong-side platoon role at third base. The 41-76 Rangers are well removed from contention and are likely eager to evaluate younger players over the final month and a half of the season, so the 23-year-old Yonny Hernandez will likely get more opportunities at third base at the expense of the 33-year-old Holt, who will become a free agent this winter.
