Holland goes East

Kikuchi started up his MLB meetings today (thought they started tomorrow) and met with TX. TX brought Holland along with Colborn apparently to try to finally convince someone that TX can develop young pitchers - remember that both Tazawa and Ynoa praised the player development systems/histories of Boston and Oakland respectively, a backhanded swipe at TX given they were or would have been high bidders in both cases:

Rangers: sent Jim Colborn and lefty Derek Holland; espoused the team’s development system and let Kikuchi ask questions.

The USS Mariner has a breakdown of one of his prep starts to which you might compare NPBT's profile.
