"We plan to monitor Josh's progress as he continues his rehab process and is medically cleared this winter," said President of Baseball Operations and General Manager Jon Daniels. "Given the rules in place, releasing him before the end of this month allows us to keep the door open to extending the relationship in the future."
Holland will be making his first major league start since June 20. He has been on the DL since that time with left shoulder inflammation. Holland had a 4.50 ERA (5 ER/10.0 IP) in 3 starts on rehab assignment at Round Rock. He is 5-5, 5.20 in 14 starts with Texas this season.
Tolleson, who was optioned to Round Rock on July 29, was placed on the Express' DL on August 12 with a lower back sprain. He is expected to be sidelined for the remainder of the season. Tolleson was 2-2, 7.68 with 11 saves in 37 games with Texas and allowed 6 runs in 4.1 innings with one save in 4 appearances at Round Rock.
With today's moves, the Rangers' major league roster remains at 40 players.
