Notes: Rangers team doctor Keith Meister determined RHP Derek Holland suffered a right kneecap subluxation and will undergo an MRI on Monday in Surprise, Ariz. Holland was rehabbing his left shoulder (rotator cuff inflammation) when he injured his knee during a fielding drill Friday. Holland suffered the same injury during the first week of spring training. Holland won't throw for about three-to-five days. ... RHP Tommy Hunter threw 45 pitches in a Saturday bullpen session and said things "felt good, no problems." He expects to start on Tuesday against Pittsburgh. Also, pitching coach Mike Maddux said the plan is for RHP Dustin Nippert to start Wednesday after he had a good bullpen session. ... Manager Ron Washington said closer Neftali Feliz is available for tonight's game. Feliz, the AL leader in saves with 18, pitched three consecutive days before getting shut down for a day on Friday. ... On the Rangers' clubhouse TV was the TCU-Florida State College World Series game. ... Saturday is Nolan Ryan Bobblehead night. ... Ryan was scheduled to attend an autograph signing prior to the game, as was Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin.
