Updating a previous report, Texas Rangers SP Alexi Ogando (shoulder) is likely to be scratched from his next start Monday, Aug. 19, and he'll probably receive an injection this weekend while waiting for a second opinion on his MRI exam. SP Ross Wolf is a candidate to take the start out of the bullpen, and SP Josh Lindblom is another option in the minors.
Fantasy Tip: Wolf is the better option because he's already on the roster, but don't rule out Lindblom. Both options are only candidates to own in AL-only leagues if they enter the rotation.

Texas Rangers 1B Lance Berkman (hip, knees) won't play for Double-A Frisco as planned Thursday, Aug. 15. He went 0-for-1 with two walks in his fourth rehab game Wednesday, Aug. 14, and he is 4-for-11 in four games. Berkman could be added to the roster if the team puts SP Alexi Ogando (shoulder) on the disabled list. SP Ross Wolf would likely move into the rotation.

The Texas Rangers don't know who'll start Thursday, July 11, in place of SP Yu Darvish (back). It'll be Ross Wolf or Neil Ramirez.
Fantasy Tip: A modestly touted prospect in recent years, Ramirez had struggled with the mental aspect of the game in recent years and is in the middle of somewhat of a revival. He'd be a better choice than Wolf, but the matchup with the Baltimore Orioles doesn't exactly scream "pick him up!" Ramirez would be worth watching should Darvish's injury linger, though.

Texas Rangers RP Ross Wolf hasn't pitched since June 15 because the club has played in nine straight contests decided by three runs or fewer and hasn't needed a long man. Manager Ron Washington said that the right-hander is doing what he can to replicate pitching in game situations.

The Texas Rangers have a doubleheader scheduled for Monday, May 27. The team could use SP Ross Wolf, who is expected to start Wednesday, May 22, too. SPs Josh Lindblom and Martin Perez are also candidates. SP Yu Darvish will start the other game of the twin bill.

Updating a previous report, the Texas Rangers will recall SP Ross Wolf from Triple-A Round Rock to start the game Wednesday, May 22, against the Oakland Athletics in place of the injured SP Nick Tepesch (blister). Wolf is also a candidate to stick around and start one of the two games of a doubleheader Monday, May 27.
Fantasy Tip: Wolf could be a decent short-term fantasy addition in AL-only play, as he might also draw a second start in Monday's doubleheader against the Seattle Mariners. If you need a back-end fantasy rotation arm, Wolf has been pitching well in the minors and is worth a look.
