ARLINGTON, Texas -- Derek Holland is making his first start for the Texas Rangers in 27 games, and the remaining pitchers on the disabled list are making progress.

Colby Lewis (forearm) hasn't had any trouble stretching out the tightness in his throwing arm. He threw 37 pitches in a bullpen session Saturday and will throw another bullpen at home in Bakersfield, Calif., on Tuesday. He is the closest pitcher to returning.

Alexi Ogando threw 51 pitches in the bullpen Saturday and will throw another session at home in the Dominican Republic at the Rangers Dominican Republic Academy on Monday. The plan is for Ogando to make a rehab start with Triple-A Round Rock on July 12.

Neftali Feliz threw 47 pitches in the bullpen and will throw another session with Ogando on Monday.

Koji Uehara will throw his next bullpen session Sunday.
