T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports that the Orioles could be the landing spot for free agent right-hander Alexi Ogando.
It's unclear whether Sullivan is merely speculating or if the Orioles are in serious talks with Ogando, but plenty of teams should be willing to take a chance on him. The 25-year-old was limited to just 25 innings this past season due to elbow issues, but he has been effective in the past. Dec 10 - 2:38 PM

Rangers non-tendered RHP Alexi Ogando.

General manager Jon Daniels said last month that he expected to tender Ogando a contract, but evidently he had a change of heart. The right-hander was highly effective before this past season, when he held a 6.84 ERA while being limited to just 25 innings due to elbow issues. If he's healthy, Ogando will be a part of someone's staff, whether it's as a starter or reliever.

Alexi Ogando will not pitch in the Dominican Republic Winter League as originally planned.

No reason was given for the change, but the Rangers could had just decided to give Ogando extra rest after he was limited to just 25 innings this season due to elbow issues. The right-hander is arbitration-eligible again this offseason.
Nov 21 - 11:25 AM

Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Monday that he doesn't expect to non-tender Alexi Ogando.

The idea has been speculated, as Ogando threw just 25 innings this season due to elbow issues and is due a raise from his $2.625 million salary. However, the Rangers are apparently willing to gamble on his health. The 31-year-old could pitch in a winter game in the Dominican Republic prior to Thanksgiving.
Nov 10 - 5:35 PM

Rangers activated RHP Alexi Ogando from the 60-day disabled list.

Ogando didn't pitch after June 3 due to inflammation and ligament "wear and tear" in his right elbow, but he recently resumed throwing bullpen sessions in the Dominican Republic. The 31-year-old could be a non-tender candidate this winter.
Nov 3 - 5:35 PM

Rangers transfer RHP Alexi Ogando to the 60-day disabled list.

It's a procedural move used to clear a spot on the 40-man roster for the addition of Mike Carp who was acquired from the Red Sox on Sunday. With each passing day, the likelihood of Ogando returning this season decreases.

Alexi Ogando (elbow) will remain shut down for three more weeks.

Ogando received a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews, who confirmed the original diagnoses that the righty is dealing with inflammation and ligament "wear and tear" in his right elbow. He'll try to return sometime next month.

Alexi Ogando is dealing with inflammation and ligament "wear and tear" in his right elbow, but not enough to warrant surgery.

Ogando has been shut down for at least the next three weeks. The thought is that he'll need about 3-4 weeks to ramp things up after being cleared to throw, so odds are he'll be out until the end of July at the very earliest.

Alexi Ogando (elbow) has been shut down for a minimum of three weeks.

Ogando was placed on the disabled list Wednesday due to what was termed as right elbow inflammation. Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports that something was found during the MRI, but the exact diagnosis isn't yet known. The 30-year-old owns an ugly 6.84 ERA and 1.92 WHIP in 25 relief innings this season.
Jun 5 - 4:40 PM

Rangers placed RHP Alexi Ogando on the 15-day disabled list with right elbow inflammation.

Ogando has registered a disappointing 6.84 ERA and 1.92 WHIP in 25 innings this season out of the Texas bullpen. He'll likely undergo some tests on the elbow. It's another tally for the Rangers' growing injury total.
Jun 4 - 4:36 PM

Alexi Ogando tossed two scoreless frames in his return to action on Tuesday.

Ogando left an appearance Saturday with a bruised right hand, but he's fine. What's not fine is his ERA, which sits at 6.86 even after his two scoreless innings Tuesday.
May 21 - 4:18 AM

Alexi Ogando left an appearance Saturday against the Blue Jays with a bruised right hand.

Ogando was struck on the hand by a line drive. X-rays came up negative and he should be fine in a few days, though the Rangers could use this opportunity to send him to the 15-day disabled list for a lengthy rehab assignment. Ogando has a rough 7.64 ERA on the year.
May 17 - 10:47 PM

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. He responded by not allowing a baserunner in closing out the one-run game. Soria's job still isn't in danger, but it's interesting to know Ogando is next in line should Soria falter.
Apr 13 - 5:41 PM

Rangers manager Ron Washington said Thursday that Alexi Ogando and Neal Cotts will be his primary setup men.

He said the order in which they pitch will depends on game situations. Ogando entered spring training as a starter, but the club has decided that he's better off in relief in spite of all the injuries they've had in the rotation. Neftali Feliz figures to eventually work his way into a late-inning role after he figures things out in the minors.
