The Texas Rangers are interested in signing free-agent SP Bartolo Colon (Athletics). Colon went 18-6 with a 2.65 ERA last year for the Oakland Athletics. If he were to sign, it would likely push SP Alexi Ogando out of the rotation and keep P Robbie Ross in the bullpen.

Texas Rangers P Nick Tepesch is expected to make his next turn in the rotation Tuesday, Sept. 17, against the Tampa Bay Rays, rather than P Alexi Ogando. "(Tepesch) is going to prepare to start," manager Ron Washington said Tuesday, Sept. 10. "We have enough arms in the bullpen."

Texas Rangers SP Alexi Ogando could return to the rotation and start next week. Ogando worked 1 1/3 scoreless innings and got the win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Sunday, Sept. 8. Ogando is 5-4 with a 3.47 ERA this season and has been on the disabled list three times. SPs Nick Tepesch and Travis Blackley are also candidates to start next week.
Fantasy Tip: Ogando's possible start next week is likely to be just a spot start, though, so his value won't increase much for the rest of the season.

With SP Alexi Ogando scratched due to an anti-inflammatory injection, the Texas Rangers are in need of a starter for the game on Tuesday, Aug. 20.
