Some upset at Derek Holland and his dog still


The Texas Rangers released a Happy Holidays video today featuring Derek Holland and his infamous dog Wrigley.   If you don’t remember, it was just under a year ago when Holland was injured when he was on the stairs with his dog Wrigley.  At that time he injured his knee to the point he required surgery to repair the damage.

Holland ended up missing a majority of the 2014 season due to that injury.  But, overall he was just one of many players that had surgery last season.  His absence was though did have a huge impact on the starting rotation.  It meant that the Rangers had to pluck deep in to the bullpen for starters and gave players like Tanner Scheppers and Robbie Ross chances in the rotation. Now that Derek Holland iss healthy and ready to go next season no one want to see him injured again.  After the video appeared on Twitter there was a bit of a backlash from it.

One Rangers fans Tweeted this.

Sean Bass from the local radio station 1310 the Ticket commented also.

Eduardo wonders if that was video was filmed where Wrigley injured him last year.

Bo Hawkins hopes Holland stays off the stairs and avoids another accident with Wrigley

It’s understandable that people will be upset, but what happened last year was an accident and he’s trying to remind people of that.  He’s now healthy and 100% ready to go.  He’s the Rangers number 2 starter and he’s working hard to someday be the ace of the club.   He did start off a little shaky last season, but he quickly improved and he looked to have no issues fielding.  Last season over 6 games (5 starts) he had a 1.46 ERA with a record of 2-0.
