Alexi Ogando has CT scan on right shoulder

The injury issues for the Texas Rangers' rotation continue.

Starter Alexi Ogando had a CT scan on his right shoulder today after complaining of some soreness after his start on Tuesday. Results will not be known until Thursday.

Ogando, a right-hander, already has two stints on the disabled list this season. He spent six weeks from June 9-July 23 on it with right shoulder inflammation, and also missed a month earlier this season with right biceps tendinitis.

The Rangers' rotation depth has taken a hit the past few days. It was determined recently that Colby Lewis and Matt Harrison will not be able to return this season, leaving Josh Lindblom and Ross Wolf as the top candidates in case of an injury.

Texas also acquired left-hander Travis Blackley from the Astros earlier today, and will stretch him out at Triple A Round Rock. However, he has only pitched in relief this season.
