The Texas Rangers are putting right-hander Alexi Ogando on the
disabled list for the third time this season.
Texas made the move before Tuesday night’s game, three days
after Ogando (5-4) had an injection because of an inflamed nerve in
his right shoulder. The DL stint is retroactive to Aug. 14, the day
after Ogando’s last start.
Left-hander Travis Blackley was selected from Triple-A Round
Rock to take Ogando’s spot in the rotation against Houston.
Blackley had been at Round Rock since being acquired from Houston
in a trade last week.
Ogando missed three weeks earlier this season because of right
biceps tendinitis, then made only one start — on June 5
— before going back on the DL due to right shoulder
