Rangers place Ogando on DL again

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

inflammation.
