Rangers Friday: Nick Martinez, Derek Holland, Shin-Soo Choo
Friday at Minute Maid
Shin-Soo Choo was not in the lineup on Friday night. He is not hurt. The Rangers are going with Delino DeShields in left, Leonys Martin in center and Josh Hamilton in right for the first game of the second half.
Stay tuned on that one.
Nick Martinez pitched two innings in Triple A on Thursday night. The Rangers are looking for bullpen help. It appears there is a possibility Martinez could come back as a reliever.
Derek Holland threw in the bullpen on Friday. His next step will be live BP in Colorado. The Rangers have discussed the possibility of Holland in the bullpen but his rehab process will continue to be as a starter. If that is the case, he may not be back until September.
