Ogando questionable for Monday's start vs. Tribe

TORONTO -- Right-hander Alexi Ogando is questionable for Monday's start against Cleveland with right bicep soreness, the Rangers announced after Saturday's 4-3, 18-inning loss to the Blue Jays.

The Rangers will reevaluate Ogando on Sunday before making a final decision, but the 29-year-old was just recently activated from the 15-day disabled list after experiencing tendinitis in his bicep.

Ogando has made one start since coming off the DL and went 5 2/3 innings in Wednesday's no-decision vs. the Red Sox. In 10 starts this season, Ogando is 4-2 with a 2.93 ERA over 55 1/3 innings.

While the club didn't announce who it would turn to if Ogando was forced to miss some time, righty Josh Lindblom was scratched from his scheduled start at Triple-A Round Rock on Saturday night. Lindblom made one start with the Rangers this season, lasting 4 2/3 innings and allowing four runs in a loss.

In 10 games and nine starts with Round Rock, the 25-year-old is 6-0 with a 2.04 ERA.
