The dramatic dip in velocity that Derek Holland experienced in the sixth inning Tuesday night was related to a lingering stomach virus that has caused the left-hander to lose 10 to 15 pounds.
Holland has been affected by the illness since the Rangers' three-game series last month at Seattle, and his weight has dropped from 217 pounds to 202.
