ALEXI OGANDO TO THE 15 DAYS DISABLED LIST
Thu, 14 Jun 2012 03:50 PM EDT

Rangers’ right-hander Alexi Ogando has been placed on the 15-day DL with a strained right groin, the team announced.

Left-hander Michael Kirkman has been recalled and might be a candidate to start in Ogando’s spot in opposition to the Astros.

Rangers’ GM Jon Daniels claimed Ogando likely won’t get back on a big league mound for 4 to 6 weeks. Baseball lines

“It was a little more important than we expected to see,” Daniels said.

Ogando, 28-year-old, had an MRI to determine the severity of the injury. He revealed he felt something in his groin while beating out a bunt single in the 4th inning of Sunday’s win over the S.F Giants.

“Right now it feels pretty bad,” Ogando told reporters after the game. “I feel bad because of the situation we’re in, but that’s something that occurs in baseball.”

Ogando was beginning due to injuries to 2 other rotation members already on the DL: Derek Holland (shoulder, stomach ailment) and Neftali Feliz (strained elbow ligament).

After enjoying a successful stint in a setup role, Ogando moved into the rotation last week when Holland was placed on the DL. Scott Feldman is winless in 5 starts since filling in for Feliz.

Ogando was an All-Star starter last season before fatigue forced a move to the bullpen. He was an important member of the Rangers’ postseason relief corps and was a flexible part of the bullpen this season, pitching multiple innings or setting up for closer Joe Nathan.

Kirkman, 25-year-old, is 5-1 with a 5.25 ERA in 15 games (8 starts) for Triple-A Round Rock this season. Over his last seven games (5 starts), Kirkman is 4-0 with a 3.38 ERA, limiting opposing batters to a .191 average with 19 walks and 33 strikeouts. He tossed a scoreless relief inning Thursday at Omaha.

Apart from Kirkman, the Rangers could choose to move rookie left-hander Robbie Ross into the rotation. He pitched 4 innings and allowed one hit when Ogando exited of Sunday’s contest.

Roy Oswalt remains on schedule to pitch for Double-A Frisco as he builds arm strength. It’ll be his 3rd start in the children since signing as a free agent a few weeks ago. Daniels said the right-hander will be evaluated following the beginning.

“Nothing has changed,” Daniels said. “It’s going to be speculated on how he’s feeling, how he’s doing and what our wants are. We want to be sure he’s 100% ready to come up both on his arm and conditioning.”

Meanwhile, there was good news on the Feliz and Holland injury fronts, according to Daniels. Feliz was examined again by doctors and is doing better. He is going to see Texas Rangers surgeon Dr. Keith Meister again next weekend; it’ll be a month since Feliz stopped throwing, and he could begin a throwing program shortly thereafter.

Holland has put some weight back on and is working out and should be prepared to throw soon as well, Daniels announced.

At that point, Daniels said going outside of the organization for pitching help isn’t a serious concern.
