ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) The Texas Rangers placed left-hander Derek Holland on the 60-day disabled list Saturday, a day after he went only one inning in the home opener because of a shoulder injury.

Outfielder Ryan Rua went on the 15-day DL with a right ankle sprain.

Texas recalled right-hander Jon Edwards from Round Rock, and purchased the contract of outfielder Carlos Peguero from the Triple-A club.

Holland felt tightness on his last pitch of warmups Friday, then threw nine pitches against Houston. He was diagnosed with a subscapular strain in his left shoulder.

The Rangers also received right-hander Stolmy Pimentel on a waiver claim from Pittsburgh.
