“With the 748th selection in the 2006 First-Year Player Draft,

the Texas Rangers select Wallace State Community College left-handed pitcher Derek Holland.











“We’d like him listed as the best damn pitcher

drafted and developed by this organization since Kevin Brown.”


*          *          *


Five years guaranteed at $28.5 million.  Two more club options ($11 million and $11.5 million) after that.

2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, and 2016.

Plus 2017 and 2018 if the club so chooses.

This is so good.
