Rangers right-hander Alexi Ogando spent nearly the entire 2012 campaign in the bullpen and had a great deal of success, finishing with a 3.27 ERA, a 1.00 WHIP and a 66/17 K/BB ratio in 66 innings.
But he is not satisfied with that setup role.
According to beat writer Richard Durrett of ESPN Dallas, Ogando has expressed a desire to return to the Rangers’ starting rotation, where he registered a promising 3.56 ERA across 26 outings in 2011.
“My wish is to be a starter, but they haven’t mentioned that at all,” Ogando told reporters through an interpreter on Saturday afternoon. “I’m going to go into the offseason and get ready to pitch and whatever they decide, they decide.”
