Texas Rangers left-hander Derek Holland will be out for up to three months because of a left knee injury, reports the Dallas Morning News.
According to the report, Holland injured the knee during a fall at his home Tuesday morning and had surgery Friday to repair cartilage damage and clean out the knee.
“I am devastated by this injury,” Holland said in a statement provided by the club. “It was a freak accident at home that resulted in a hard fall on my knee. As upsetting as this is, my goal is to begin rehab and get back on the mound as quickly as possible.”
