Texas Rangers third baseman Michael Young was out of the starting lineup for the second straight game due to a stiff neck.

Young left Monday night's game against Tampa Bay after six innings and didn't play on Tuesday. He first felt the neck discomfort when he woke up Monday.

"I just slept wrong," he said.

Young said he was feeling better on Wednesday, but his movement is still limited. He's undergoing daily treatment for the injury.

"Right now it's kind of a hour by hour kind of thing," Young said. "I get more treatment and it feels better. So I imagine that will continue."

Young is hitting .288 with 19 homers and 69 RBIs in 116 games this season.

"As soon as I can move around, play defense and go up there and take my normal swings, then I'll be back in the lineup," Young said. "Until then it's just a matter of getting my treatment."

Also, the Rangers recalled left-hander Derek Holland from Triple-A Oklahoma City to start Wednesday's game against the Rays and optioned reliever Pedro Strop to the PCL club.
