The Texas Rangers have placed left-handed starter Derek Holland on their 15-day disabled list with left shoulder fatigue, according to ESPNDallas.com’s Richard Durrett. In a corresponding roster move, the Rangers have called up right-hander Tanner Scheppers from Triple-A. T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com is reporting that the Rangers are planning on starting right-hander Alexi Ogando in place of Holland.

Holland has been hampered by a stomach virus for the past two weeks and the Rangers do not want him to pitch in a physically weakened position, according to Sullivan.

Over his 12 appearances, including 11 starts, for the Rangers this season, Holland has struggled to an ERA and WHIP of 5.10 and 1.328.

Ogando, who’s pitched solely out of the Rangers bullpen this season, is set to take Holland’s spot in Texas’ rotation. The 28-year-old started 29 games for the Rangers last season, posting an ERA and WHIP of 3.51 and 1.136.
