Texas Rangers Vs. Chicago White Sox: Pitching Probables, Game Time And More

Derek Holland will make his first start of 2012 on Saturday night, as the Texas Rangers and Chicago White Sox play the middle game of a three game series on Opening Week.

Holland pitched in only 14 Cactus League innings this spring, giving up eight runs on 16 hits while striking out 10 and walking only two. Holland's final tuneup this spring came against Texas' AA affiliate on Monday, when the lefty needed 78 pitches to make it through three innings. Holland surrendered three runs on six hits, but did strike out five.

Texas' offense will face off against former Cy Young award winner Jake Peavy. Peavy, who hasn't made 30 starts in a season since 2007, has been plagued by various injuries throughout the last few years. Last year, Peavy pitched just 111.2 innings, with a 4.92 ERA and 1.26 WHIP.

The Rangers have had Peavy's number the last few years. In Peavy's last three starts against Texas, the right hander is 0-2 with an 8.80 ERA, and has pitched only 15.1 innings in those three starts.

First pitch is scheduled for 7:05 p.m. CT from Rangers Ballpark in Arlington. Televised coverage can be found on Fox Sports Southwest and MLB.tv.
