Alexi Ogando is probably done for the rest of the World Series

This is not a surprise given his sudden departure from last night’s game, but the Rangers suspect that reliever Alexi Ogando has suffered a strained oblique muscle and believe  he won’t be available for the rest of the World Series. He’ll be examined more thoroughly today.  If he can’t go, Dustin Nippert is likely to replace Ogando on the roster.

This is a shame, as Ogando has pitched pretty well in the postseason.  While the Rangers will live or die by Cliff Lee’s left arm tonight, if they do push things out to a Game 6 or 7, it would have been awfully nice to have Ogando around.
