ARLINGTON -- Alexi Ogando, who was placed on the disabled list on Thursday because of biceps tendinitis, said he has had this problem before. Ogando said the recent flareup occurred during his six-inning outing on Wednesday against the Athletics.

"It's nothing major," Ogando said. "It's something I've felt off and on before. I should be back to normal soon. I would have been able to pitch, but we don't want it to get worse. We want it to get better. It's just one-two starts."

Ogando had an MRI and the results showed nothing more than inflammation. Josh Lindblom is expected to pitch for the Rangers on Monday against Oakland. Ogando is eligible to come off the disabled list on May 31, although the likely target date for his next start is June 2 against the Royals at Rangers Ballpark.
