ARLINGTON (AP) – Texas Rangers right-hander Alexi Ogando has been placed on the 15-day disabled list because of tendinitis in his right biceps.
The move Thursday came a day after Ogando (4-2, 3.08 ERA) allowed two runs over six innings in a victory at Oakland, in his ninth start of the season.
Texas recalled right-hander Cory Burns from Triple-A Round Rock, where he has spent all season. Burns’ only major league action came last season with San Diego, when he was 0-1 with a 5.50 ERA in 17 relief appearances.
Ogando is on the disabled list for the second time in his career. He missed a month last season because of a strained right groin.
