Derek Holland Attacked In Shower! Um, By an Earthquake?

Another January, another Derek Holland freak injury?

Almost.

But unlike a year ago when the Rangers’ pitcher suffered a serious knee injury when he tripped over his dog running down the stairs in his house, on Tuesday Holland escaped harm – but not humiliation.

“Yes,” Holland said on Twitter yesterday afternoon, “I was naked and fell in the shower. Hahaha.”

This time his dog Wrigley wasn’t to blame, but instead the 3.5 magnitude earthquake that rocked the DFW Metroplex around 3:15 p.m.

He missed four months of the season last year, but yesterday escaped any injury. It does beg the question though, who takes a shower in the middle of the afternoon?

A native Texan who was born in Duncanville and graduated from UT-Arlington, Richie Whitt has been a mainstay in the Metroplex media since 1986. He’s held prominent roles on all media platforms including newspaper (Fort Worth Star-Telegram, Dallas Observer), radio (105.3 The Fan) and TV (co-host on TXA 21 and numerous guest appearances, including NBC 5). He currently lives in McKinney with his wife, Sybil, and two very spoiled dogs.
