Alexi Ogando RP TEX 25 Days

The Rangers will not tender Ogando (elbow) a contract, making him a free agent.

Ogando has certainly had some moments for fantasy owners in recent years, highlighted by his 2011 campaign when he posted a 3.51 ERA over 169 innings, mostly as a starter. However, injuries have been a big part of his narrative in recent seasons, and he posted a 6.84 ERA in 25 relief innings in 2014, which prompted the Rangers to cut him loose. He opted not to pitch in the Dominican Winter League to rest his ailing elbow, which also forced him to be shut down midway through the 2014 season.

Alexi Ogando pitched a perfect ninth inning against the Astros to earn his first save of the season Sunday.

Rangers closer Joakim Soria had pitched in two straight games, so when a save situation presented itself Sunday Rangers manager Ron Washington turned to Ogando.
