As expected, the Rangers have activated Alexi Ogando from the disabled list for tonight’s start against the Red Sox, in Boston.
Ogando has been out since mid-May with biceps tendinitis, but tossed six innings of two-run ball (including zero earned runs) at Double-A on Friday to convince the Rangers he’s ready to return. He threw only 60 pitches in the rehab outing, so it may be an abbreviated start tonight.
Ogando had a 3.08 ERA in nine starts before the injury, making him 17-10 with a 3.40 ERA in 39 career starts.
