The Texas Rangers may need Roy Oswalt to speed up his road back to the majors, as the team placed starter Derek Holland on the 15-day disabled list with left shoulder fatigue.
Holland, who has a 4.48 FIP on the season, has been fighting a stomach virus the last few weeks, losing 10-15 pounds. Over his last four starts, the lefty has allowed 18 runs over 19.1 innings.
Alexi Ogando will get Sunday start for Rangers.

Taking his place on the roster will be pitcher Tanner Scheppers, a reliever from Triple-A Round Rock. Taking his place on the mound though will be Alexi Ogando, who made 29 starts for the Rangers in 2011, posting a 3.65 FIP and 3.6 fWAR.
