Alexi Ogando to DL

The Rangers placed Alexi Ogando on the 15-day disabled list with right shoulder inflammation. It’s the second time Ogando has been out with shoulder inflammation and his third trip to the disabled list this season.

Matt West has been recalled from Advanced-A Myrtle Beach and placed on the the 60-day disabled list to make room for Travis Blackley, who will pitch Tuesday against the Astros, on the 40-man roster. West is rehabbing from Tommy John surgery.

Surely the off and on nature of Ogando’s availability would suggest not trying him as a starter for the rest of this season; but, his control problems also make him a risk in tight relief situations. A quandry.
