SURPRISE, Ariz. -- Rangers pitcher Derek Holland walked into the clubhouse Sunday with no brace on his right knee and no visible limp.

Holland said he felt "way better" than he did on Saturday and received treatment. Rangers asssistant general manager Thad Levine said Holland is scheduled to have an MRI on Monday anyway.

"It's precautionary, but we feel it's smart to see what's in there," Levine said.

Other injury updates:

* OF Brandon Boggs has no limitations but hasn't yet tried sliding. That probably won't happen until the weather improves. It's not raining in Surprise, but it's very wet after a downpour last night.

* RHP Doug Mathis (cut on his finger) is supposed to throw a light bullpen session today.

* RHP Eric Hurley is throwing bullpens every three days and is scheduled to throw one on Monday.

* RHP Omar Beltre is expected to throw a bullpen today. He has not thrown to live hitters yet.
