Former Rangers' left-hander Derek Holland agreed Monday to a minor league contract with the Detroit Tigers and was invited to major league spring training.
The 34-year-old is 79-81 with a 4.61 ERA in 12 major league seasons. He went 1-3 with a 6.86 ERA in 12 appearances, including five starts, for the Pittsburgh Pirates last year -- after initially signing a minor league deal with them.
Holland went 16-5 with Texas in 2011 when the Rangers won a second straight American League pennant.
