Rangers Put Ogando on DL Again 8/21/13
The Texas Rangers are putting right-hander Alexi Ogando (oh-GAHN'-doh) on the disabled list for the third time this season.
Texas made the move before Tuesday night's game, three days after Ogando (5-4) had an injection because of an inflamed nerve in his right shoulder. The DL stint is retroactive to Aug. 14, the day after Ogando's last start.
Houston Astros catcher Carlos Corporan has been placed on the seven-day disabled list for a concussion. Corporan was struck in the head by a foul tip in the Astros' 16-5 loss to Texas on Monday night. Astros manager Bo Porter said after the game that Corporan was "nauseated, dizzy and slow to respond" in the dugout.
A New York Mets doctor is recommending that right-hander Jeremy Hefner have Tommy John surgery. Hefner was put on the disabled list last week. He said he's been dealing with a sore elbow all season. The 27-year-old Hefner is 4-8 with a 4.34 ERA. He was 0-2 with a 7.58 ERA in his past six starts.
