Rangers right-hander Alexi Ogando is headed to the disabled list with elbow inflammation after posting a 6.84 ERA in 25 innings this season.

Prior to this season Ogando always thrived for the Rangers no matter whether they used him as a starter or a reliever, with year-by-year ERAs of 1.30, 3.51, 3.27, and 3.11. However, this year he coughed up 19 runs and walked 15 batters in 25 innings.

Obviously elbow problems would help explain Ogando’s season-long struggles, but he complained of the soreness Tuesday after allowing three runs in one-third of an inning against the Orioles.

Texas’ disabled list now includes Ogando, Derek Holland, Matt Harrison, Martin Perez, and Tanner Scheppers. And that’s just the pitching staff.

    Not the year for Texas. At least, they will get a decent draft pick in next year’s draft.
