Per T.R. Sullivan, the Rangers have placed reliever Frank Francisco on the disabled list and recalled Derek Holland to take his place on the active roster.
Holland has been mainly used as a starter this season, both with the Rangers and at Oklahoma City. But he will work out of the bullpen for now as a long reliever.
Francisco has been bothered by the strained muscle for the past 7-10 days and he left Friday’s game after facing just two batters. Francisco felt the muscle pull after a leadoff walk in the ninth and he was immediately removed from the game.
