Derek Holland will be in a Texas Rangers uniform for at least the next five years. The Texas Rangers announced today that they signed the left hander to a five-year deal with club options for two additional seasons. The deal begins this season and means he will stay in a Rangers uniform at least through the 2016 season.

Holland, whose new deal is worth $28.5 million, went 16-5 with a 3.95 ERA last season for Texas, winning 12 of his final 13 decisions in his third year with the club.
