Apr 8 - 7:34 PM

Phillies placed LHP Mario Hollands on the 60-day disabled list with a left elbow injury.

Apr 5 - 2:06 PM

Mario Hollands (elbow) will undergo another ultrasound on his common flexor tendon this week.

Hollands was hoping to have more clarity on his injured elbow after a meeting with Dr. James Andrews, but Andrews had trouble getting a clear reading on Hollands' MRI Monday. The Phillies' team physician has already recommended season-ending surgery to repair the strain in his elbow. Either way, Hollands won't be back with the Phillies any time soon.
Apr 1 - 7:40 PM

Mario Hollands is getting a second opinion on his injured elbow from Dr. James Andrews.

Dr. Michael Ciccotti, the Phillies' team physician, has recommended that Hollands undergo surgery to repair the common flexor tendon strain in his left elbow. It would put him out for the entire 2015 season.

Mario Hollands is likely to need elbow surgery.

Hollands was diagnosed Sunday with a common flexor tendon strain -- the same injury that is threatening the career of Cliff Lee. Hollands will be evaluated this week by team physician Dr. Michael Ciccotti. Surgery would likely cost him the entire 2015 season.
Mar 23 - 10:22 AM

Mario Hollands (elbow) has been diagnosed with a common flexor tendon strain.

The injury is the same as the one plaguing Cliff Lee, a bad sign for the 26-year-old. Hollands will be evaluated and his MRI findings will be reviewed before a plan of action is determined. It appears as though Hollands will spend some time on the disabled list as a result of the injury.

Mario Hollands is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his sore left elbow on Saturday.

Mar 21 - 11:36 AM

Mario Hollands gave up a homer to Pedro Alvarez and three runs in his one-third of an inning Friday against the Pirates.

Hollands entered camp with a pretty good chance of winning a bullpen spot, but he's hurt the cause with an 11.81 ERA. Giving up a homer to Alvarez is a big blow, considering that Hollands is a lefty and Alvarez has a history of not hitting lefties.
Mar 20 - 4:36 PM

Phillies activated LHP Mario Hollands from the 60-day disabled list.

Nothing more than a procedural move here that puts Hollands back on the team's 40-man roster. The 26-year-old southpaw was shut down in early September due to a flexor strain in his pitching elbow after posting a 4.40 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 35/21 K/BB ratio in 47 frames.

Phillies purchased the contract of LHP Mario Hollands from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Hollands, 25, compiled a 3.09 ERA and 10/5 K/BB ratio over 11 2/3 innings of work this spring. He owns a 3.93 ERA in the minors, mostly as a starter, but will pitch out of Philadelphia's bullpen to begin the 2014 campaign.
