    Alexi Ogando still has some shoulder soreness following a bullpen session earlier this week, so not surprisingly manager Ron Washington admitted that the Rangers don’t expect him back from the disabled list until after the All-Star break. Jeff Wilson of the Forth Worth Star Telegram reports that Ogando will throw at least one more bullpen…

    Alexi Ogando was activated from the disabled list last Wednesday after sitting out three weeks with biceps tendinitis. But he’s back on the shelf again. MLB.com’s T.R. Sullivan reports that Ogando was placed on the 15-day disabled list Sunday due to inflammation in his right (throwing) shoulder. Josh Lindblom was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock…

    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.

    May 30, 2013, 1:51 PM EDT

    Alexi Ogando

    Alexi Ogando is scheduled to make a minor-league rehab start Friday at Double-A and if it goes well the Rangers right-hander will likely be cleared to return from the disabled list.

    May 16, 2013, 4:58 PM EDT

    alexi ogando getty

    Alexi Ogando pitched well in his last start, throwing six innings of two-run ball Wednesday, but now he’s headed to the disabled list with biceps tendinitis. Josh Lindblom is expected to take Ogando’s place in the rotation beginning Monday, which is interesting because all 101 of his big-league appearances have come out of the bullpen.…

  7. Oakland’s Dan Straily strikes out 11, wins and then gets demoted

    Apr 6, 2013, 1:34 AM EDT

    Dan Straily

    Dan Straily knew he was only a member of Oakland’s rotation because Bartolo Colon had a handful of games left on his 2012 PED suspension. So, it didn’t come as any surprise when he was optioned to Triple-A after striking out 11 Astros and picking up his third big-league victory Friday. Casey Pratt of CSNBayArea.com…

    Philadelphia Phillies v Atlanta Braves

    Today was supposed to be the first day that I posted ATH later than I used to. Really: I was going to restore life balance with this one. I watched the Braves game last night but rather than stay up another hour and a half or two hours getting most of the recaps done, I…

  9. Rangers strike out 15 Astros in second straight shutout

    Apr 3, 2013, 5:47 PM EDT

    Alexi Ogando

    Alexi Ogando wasn’t quite Yu Darvish today, but he did surrender just four hits and strike out 10 Astros over 6 1/3 innings in the Rangers’ 4-0 win. Michael Kirkman and Joe Nathan combined to fan five in relief, giving the Rangers their second straight 15-strikeout game. Darvish racked up that many all by himself…

  10. Michael Weiner: qualifying offer system “hasn’t worked out”

    Mar 3, 2013, 9:37 PM EDT

    Michael Weiner

    Mark Feinsand has a revealing quote from MLB Players Association executive director Michael Weiner on baseball’s new qualifying offer system: “While neither us nor the commissioner’s office have any legal obligation to bargain over that issue over the term of the basic agreement, I don’t think it was the intention of either side that you…

  11. Alexi Ogando is locked in as a starter for the Rangers

    Feb 11, 2013, 12:16 PM EDT

    Alexi Ogando

    After switching him back and forth between the bullpen and rotation for three seasons the Rangers are now committed to sticking with Alexi Ogando as a full-time starter. And he’s happy about that, telling T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com: “This is what I want. For me, starting is easier. You have four days off and every…

  12. Rangers give Matt Harrison five-year, $55 million contract

    Jan 16, 2013, 9:48 PM EDT

    Matt Harrison

    32 wins over the last two years was enough to convince the Rangers to bet heavily on Matt Harrison. They gave the 27-year-old left-hander a five-year, $55 million extension with a vesting option for 2018, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram’s Jeff Wilson. Harrison, part of the Mark Teixeira deal with the Braves that also…

    alexi ogando getty

    Alexi Ogando has moved back and forth from the bullpen to the rotation for Texas during the past two seasons, making 30 starts and 59 relief appearances while thriving in both roles, and now T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports that the Rangers “are determined” to use him as a starter in 2013. Ogando has a…

    Oct 7, 2012, 10:52 AM EDT

    alexi ogando getty

    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…

  15. Hiroki Kuroda tosses two-hit shutout against Rangers

    Aug 14, 2012, 9:58 PM EDT

    Hiroki Kuroda Getty

    The Yankees need a healthy CC Sabathia if they hope to make a legitimate run at the World Series, but Hiroki Kuroda continues to prove that he’s no slouch, either. Kuroda limited the Rangers to just two hits in a complete game 3-0 win tonight at Yankee Stadium. It was his fourth career shutout and…

  16. Winners and losers at the trade deadline

    Jul 31, 2012, 4:49 PM EDT

    Rangers celebrate

    One person’s thoughts on who made out best and worst at the trade deadline. Winners Texas Rangers: GM Jon Daniels wasn’t interested in parting with third baseman Mike Olt, much less shortstop Jurickson Profar, in order to counter the Angels’ Zack Greinke pickup, but he was able to keep his best prospects and land Ryan…

  17. The Rangers are preparing to move Alexi Ogando back into the rotation

    Jul 28, 2012, 12:02 PM EDT

    Alexi Ogando Reuters

    We heard earlier this week that the Rangers were considering moving Alexi Ogando back in the starting rotation. Well, they got the ball rolling in last night’s loss to the White Sox. Last night’s starter, Yu Darvish, was knocked out of the ballgame after 6 1/3 innings, so Ogando ended up pitching the final 2…

  18. Rangers consider moving Alexi Ogando back into rotation

    Jul 24, 2012, 10:47 AM EDT

    Alexi Ogando

    Alexi Ogando‘s versatility has basically allowed the Rangers to move him back and forth from the rotation to the bullpen based on whichever spot has been wrecked more by injuries. He’s thrived in both roles and with Colby Lewis out for the season following Tommy John elbow surgery, Neftali Feliz on the disabled list with…

  19. Alexi Ogando returns from disabled list as a reliever

    Jul 16, 2012, 10:15 AM EDT

    Alexi Ogando

    Alexi Ogando‘s first 27 appearances of the season came as a reliever and then he moved into the Rangers’ injury wrecked rotation on June 10, throwing three innings before being shut down with a strained groin. Six weeks later he’s back from the disabled list and the Rangers’ starting pitching has gotten healthier during that…

  20. Alexi Ogando expected to rejoin Rangers next week

    Jul 11, 2012, 12:54 PM EDT

    Alexi Ogando

    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…

  21. Neftali Feliz works as a starter while rehabbing elbow injury

    Jul 6, 2012, 12:16 PM EDT

    Neftali Feliz

    Back when Neftali Feliz went on the disabled list with an elbow injury in mid-May the Rangers had so much rotation depth that there was speculation he’d return as a reliever. Since then Feliz has been joined on the DL by Colby Lewis, Derek Holland, and Alexi Ogando–and Roy Oswalt has been knocked around–so not…

  22. Rangers’ rotation takes another hit with Colby Lewis on DL

    Jun 26, 2012, 4:48 PM EDT

    colby lewis reuters

    Colby Lewis has joined Neftali Feliz, Derek Holland, and Alexi Ogando as Rangers starters (or fill-in starters) on the disabled list, as the team put him on the shelf with a strained forearm. That move makes room on the roster for top prospect Martin Perez’s promotion from Triple-A, but instead of putting the 21-year-old Perez…

  23. Roy Oswalt throws six innings, 100 pitches in fourth minor league start

    Jun 18, 2012, 9:45 AM EDT

    Roy Oswalt

    Roy Oswalt has been shaky at times while building up his arm strength in the minors, but yesterday the 34-year-old right-hander threw six innings and stretched out to 100 pitches at Triple-A. Making his fourth tune-up start since signing with the Rangers late last month, Oswalt allowed two runs on six hits–including just one extra-base…

  24. Rangers turn to Double-A starter Justin Grimm to patch banged-up rotation

    Jun 15, 2012, 11:51 AM EDT

    justin grimm rangers

    Neftali Feliz, Derek Holland, and Alexi Ogando are on the disabled list, Roy Oswalt is scuffling in the minors, and Scott Feldman is 0-6 with a 6.50 ERA, so the Rangers have decided to dip down to Double-A for their latest rotation reinforcement. Justin Grimm will be called up from Double-A to make his big-league…

  25. Rangers’ rotation takes another hit as Alexi Ogando goes on the disabled list

    Jun 12, 2012, 12:48 PM EDT

    Alexi Ogando

    As expected Alexi Ogando‘s groin injury has led him to the disabled list, where he joins Rangers starters Neftali Feliz and Derek Holland, the latter of whom he replaced in the rotation last week. There’s no word yet on who’ll fill in for Ogando, but the Rangers called up left-hander Michael Kirkman from Triple-A and…
