ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — The Texas Rangers have cleared a spot on their active roster for Derek Holland to make his first start in two months, but they still have to make another move before the left-hander pitches Tuesday at Cincinnati.

While the Rangers were off Monday, the team optioned right-hander Nick Martinez to Triple-A Round Rock.

The Rangers will have to make a corresponding move on their 40-man roster before Tuesday's game for Holland, who has been on the 60-day disabled list because of left shoulder inflammation. His last start for Texas was June 20.

Holland is 5-5 with a 5.20 ERA in 14 starts for the Rangers this season.

Martinez is 1-3 with a 7.16 ERA in eight games over four starts with Texas.
