His first and final starts were solid but he struggled in the two middle appearances.

Holland to Texas

Starter Derek Holland is expected to officially rejoin the Rangers today to start in place of Harden after Tommy Hunter was pushed forward a day.

It would be Holland's first start with the Rangers since May 30, when he left Texas' game after one inning with inflammation in his rotator cuff.

Holland was assigned to the RedHawks for a rehab assignment in late July, but was optioned to the RedHawks a few days later after the team acquired Cliff Lee.

Holland has been 2-1 with a 4.00 ERA in his latest stint with the team.

Guillermo Moscoso, who was to start Tuesday's game, will start tonight. The RedHawks starters for Friday and Saturday have not been announced.

Cora to join team today

The Rangers signed infielder Alex Cora to a minor league contract and assigned him to the RedHawks on Tuesday.

Cora is expected to join the team today.

The veteran played 62 games for the Mets before being released earlier this month.

With Joaquin Arias' struggles in the field recently and Ian Kinsler's return not imminent, Cora might quickly wind up with the Rangers.

Outfielder James Tomlin recorded his first Triple-A hit with a fourth-inning single.... Brandon McCarthy could start for the RedHawks on Friday or Saturday.... The RedHawks did not have a hit after the fourth inning.... After catching five innings in Monday's game as he started a rehab assignment, Matt Treanor did not play.
