ARLINGTON – The injury riddled Texas starting rotation got some more bad news Wednesday as Alexi Ogando had a CT scan after complaining about shoulder soreness following his Tuesday start.
The club said it won’t have any updates on Ogando until Thursday.
Ogando (5-4) has already been on the disabled list twice this season, once with right shoulder inflammation and the second time with right biceps tendinitis.
Ogando has made 16 starts this year, with the last five coming after he missed more than a month because of the shoulder inflammation.
In the last week, the Rangers have already lost both Colby Lewis and Matt Harrison for the remainder of the season. Texas did add some starting depth Wednesday when it traded for left-hander Travis Blackley from Houston. The club sent Blackley to Triple A Round Rock.
If Ogando misses time the Rangers could move long man Ross Wolf into the rotation. The options at Triple A include right-hander Josh Lindblom, right-hander Evan Meek and Blackley.
