The Texas Rangers have placed Alexi Ogando on the D.L.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by joelapinski on Wednesday 21 August 2013 at 7:42 am

The Rangers have placed 29-year old righty starting pitcher Alexi Ogando on the 15-day disabled list due to right shoulder inflammation.  Ogando has pitched in 15 games (all starts) for the Rangers so far this year and he is 5-4 with a 3.47 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP.  He has given up 72 hits and 33 walks while whiffing 54 batters in his first 80 1/3 innings, which are solid numbers.  The Rangers really need to think about using Ogando in the bullpen full time again in 2014 in an effort to keep him healthy.  Ogando has started 45 games for the Rangers so far in his career and he is 18-12 with a 3.49 ERA and a 1.18 WHIP.  In his 103 relief appearances so far in his career with the Rangers, Ogando is 6-1 with 3 saves, a 2.53 ERA and a 1.08 WHIP.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by joelapinski on Tuesday 6 August 2013 at 6:54 pm

34-year old righty starting pitcher Colby Lewis need surgery to remove bone spurs from his hip and it will end his 2013 season.  Lewis pitched in 7 games (all starts) for the Rangers in AA+AAA-ball this year while rehabbing from elbow surgery and he was 0-2 with a 7.50 ERA and a 1.71 WHIP.  Lewis has pitched in 124 games (113 starts) in his six years with the Rangers and he is 44-42 with a 4.68 ERA and a 1.35 WHIP.  This is another blow to the Rangers as they were hoping to have Lewis for the stretch run in 2013.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by joelapinski on Wednesday 10 July 2013 at 5:25 pm

The Rangers have placed 26-year old righty starting pitcher Yu Darvish on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to July 7th, due to a slightly strained right trapezius muscle.  He has pitched in 18 games (all starts) for the Rangers so far this year and he is 8-4 with a 3.02 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP.  Darvish has only given up 84 hits and 41 walks while whiffing a major league leading 157 batters in his first 119 1/3 innings this year, which is impressive.  He will miss the All-Star Game.  30-year old righty Ross Wolf or 24-year old righty Neil Ramirez will make the start in Darvish’s spot tomorrow.  Wolf has pitched in 12 games (1 start) for the Rangers so far this year and he is 1-1 with a 1.95 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP.  Ramirez came into this season as the Rangers’ #23 prospect according to Baseball America.  Ramirez has pitched in 17 games (all starts) in AA-ball so far this year and he is 9-3 with a 3.33 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP.  Ramirez has only given up 62 hits and 38 walks while whiffing 113 batters in his first 92 innings in the minors, which is pretty impressive.  The Rangers hope that Darvish will only miss one start.

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Injuries by joelapinski on Sunday 7 July 2013 at 11:54 am

The Rangers have placed 37-year old switch-hitting DH/1B Lance Berkman on the 15-day disabled list due to left hip inflammation.  Berkman played in 68 games earlier this year for the Rangers and he was 62 of 244 (.254 avg, .732 OPS) with 27 runs scored, 6 homers and 34 RBIs.  20-year old switch-hitting infielder Jurickson Profar will likely see a bump in P.T. while Berkman is out of action.  Profar has played in 33 games so far this year and he is 28 of 111 (.252 avg, .692 OPS) with 10 runs scored, 3 homers and 9 RBIs.  Berkman’s injury will give the Rangers as shot to showcase Profar in advance of the trade deadline later this month.

The Rangers have placed 26-year old lefty reliever Michael Kirkman on the 15-day disabled list, due to cutaneous lymphoma in his right triceps.  This is something that can be controlled by treatment, so it won’t likely endanger Kirkman’s career by any means.  He has pitched in 25 games (0 starts) for the Rangers so far this year and he is 0-2 with 1 save, a 8.18 ERA and a 2.32 WHIP.  Kirkman has now pitched in 82 games (0 starts) in his first four years with the Rangers and he is 2-5 with 1 save, a 5.17 ERA and a 1.48 WHIP.
