Alexi Ogando, like Rangers teammate Neftali Feliz, has been cleared to begin a minor-league rehab assignment, and it sounds like Ogando will definitely win the race back to the big leagues.

Ogando, who’s missed the past month with a groin injury, is scheduled to make Triple-A appearances on Thursday and Saturday, throwing one inning in his first outing and two innings in his second outing.

Feliz’s return is slower because he’s being brought back as a starter and must build up his pitch count, whereas the Rangers are preparing to slide Ogando back into the bullpen and Richard Durrett of ESPN Dallas reports that he could come off the disabled list as soon as next Tuesday.

    So Ogando’s going into the bullpen, Feliz will give the Rangers 6 great to fairly good starters, and Joe Nathan is still on fire…May God have mercy on the AL line-ups.

      Unless the Rangers line-up finds some consistency, that may be all for naught.

        I’m more worried about that offense getting back on track. They’ve been woefully inconsistent lately.

    I’m curious what happens to Perez when everyone gets healthy.
