ARLINGTON -- The Rangers are waiting to see how Alexi Ogando comes out of Friday's start for Double-A Frisco before deciding when to slot him back into the rotation. Ogando is scheduled to throw five innings and 75 pitches in his first outing since a victory over the Athletics on May 15.

Ogando has been sidelined since then with triceps tendinitis. The earliest he would return would be Wednesday against the Red Sox. In that case, Ogando would be pitching on four days of rest. But manager Ron Washington said Ogando's return will likely be later than that, either Thursday against the Red Sox or next weekend's series against the Blue Jays in Toronto.

"We'll just see how he comes out of that and how well his bullpen [session] goes on Sunday," Washington said. "He'll be slotted into one of those games."

The Rangers are pitching Derek Holland, Nick Tepesch and Yu Darvish during the three-game series against the Royals this weekend. The Rangers are off on Monday and then Justin Grimm will pitch Tuesday in Boston.
