— Player Notes
Advice: Holland will make one final rehab start for Triple-A Round Rock on Thursday before being activated next week if all goes well. The left-hander has been on the shelf all season following offseason knee surgery and has posted a 4.30 ERA over his first five rehab outings. Fantasy owners should probably see how Holland looks for his first start or two before activating him.

Advice: Holland has been out all year following offseason knee surgery and shouldn't be expected to debut until probably mid-September. It is unclear when his next rehab start will be. He has struggled so far in the minors.

Advice: "To see what he's got," Washington said. "If he keeps progressing, you'll see him." Holland says he's ready to go after throwing 87 pitches in five-plus innings in his latest rehab start Tuesday with Triple-A Round Rock. However, the club wants him to make one more start in the minors before he rejoins the big league rotation. Holland, of course, is coming back from microfracture knee surgery. "I feel like I'm ready, but that's up to them," Holland said. "I can't decide too much. They have to figure out what the call is. I'm ready. The whole thing down there was just making sure I could finish and go as long as I could. I feel good."
