Updating previous items, Texas Rangers manager Ron Washington acknowledged when he met with SP Alexi Ogando (biceps) about the pitcher's biceps tendonitis, Ogando revealed that it had been bothering him before his start against the Oakland Athletics. Ogando is now on the 15-day disabled list. "He finally told me that when we were talking and I said 'You can't do that'," Washington said. "He's got a different workload this year. When you are a reliever and you only have to pitch an inning or so, you can pitch through some soreness, but when you are a starter, it's a different situation. You can make it worse."

The Texas Rangers placed SP Alexi Ogando (biceps) on the 15-day disabled list with biceps tendonitis Thursday, May 16, and recalled P Cory Burns in a corresponding move. SP Josh Lindblom will make the start Monday, May 20.
Fantasy Tip: Burns will work out of the bullpen and Lindblom is a temporary solution for Ogando's rotation post. Colby Lewis (elbow, triceps) could return soon from the DL before Ogando gets back, so he could slot into the rotation. If not, Martin Perez (arm), who is recovered from a broken arm, could come up. Lewis isn't a bad arm to stash in deep mixed leagues with his return looming.

Texas Rangers SP Alexi Ogando continues to improve as he makes the transition to a starting pitcher this spring. His starts this spring have been a mixed bag, and his struggles with command have been his biggest problem. "He is still trying to find command of his fastball, but then in the fourth and fifth innings he started getting better with it," manager Ron Washington said. "He's progressing. Those fourth and fifth innings he starting spotting the fastball the way he could. There's two pitches I know he'd like back. Other than that, I thought he did a good job." Ogando gave up four runs (three earned) and five hits while walking two and striking out three in five innings Tuesday, March 19. He has a 4.17 ERA with a team-high 13 strikeouts in 15 1/3 innings.
Fantasy Tip: These are the kind of growing pains you should expect with a pitcher that has seen his role change back and forth the past several seasons. He has the makeup and skills to successfully pull this off and become a high-K starter.
