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 RP Cory Burns has begun to stand out among the team's bullpen options this spring, making three scoreless appearances. "He's doing a good job," manager Ron Washington said. "He's got deception, changes speed and can move the ball in on left-handers. He can throw his fastball on both sides of the plate." Burns throws in the high-80s with a sidearm delivery but his changeup generates swings and misses nearly 40 percent of the time. RPs Joe Nathan and Jason Frasor are the only pitchers guaranteed spots in the bullpen. RPs Tanner Scheppers (hamstring) and Wilmer Font (shoulder) are both sidelined with minor injuries, and RP Josh Lindblom hasn't fared very well so far. Burns has intrigued the Rangers ever since they acquired him from the San Diego Padres.
