Rangers DFA Rupe, Call Up Derek Holland

T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports that the Rangers have designated reliever Josh Rupe for assignment.  

Rupe had allowed 12 hits and eight earned runs during 4 2/3 innings of work.  He was replaced on the 25-man roster by Derek Holland, the club's 2008 Minor League Pitcher of the Year. Holland, 22, went 13-1 with a 2.27 ERA in 26 starts last season between Single-A and Double-A.  He'll work out of the bullpen initially.
