Michael Kirkman To Join Rangers

Left handed pitcher Michael Kirkman will be joining the Rangers bullpen tonight according to Jeff Wilson. Kirkman has gone 13-3 in 131 innings in AAA this year, posting a 3.09 ERA while striking out 130, walking 68 and surrendering 115 hits. Kirkman has made 22 starts in AAA, but his last two appearances have been out of the bullpen.

Wilson speculates that Derek Holland will be sent down to the minor leagues and that Rich Harden, who was excellent in his last rehab start, will take Holland's spot in the rotation.
