Derek Holland ready after final rehab start
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Rangers pitcher Derek Holland's rehab start at Triple-A Round Rock Thursday should be his last one, according to ESPN.com.

Holland, who is recovering from knee surgery which has cost him his entire season so far, had his last start scratched due to a back injury. However, he said he did not feel the back was an issue Thursday, and feels ready to pitch in the majors.

"I felt good," Holland said. "I think the big thing was to just test my back and make sure everything was OK with that from there. I felt good and continue to pound the zone and just getting myself ready, that's the main thing. Just to get back to make sure I'm ready to go." 

The team currently does not have a plan for getting Holland into the rotation in the majors, but the report indicates it could happen at some time in the next week.
