ARLINGTON -- The Rangers made two roster moves on Tuesday to make room for right-handers Alexi Ogando and Matt Garza, optioning Cory Burns and Joseph Ortiz to Triple-A Round Rock. The moves gave the Rangers seven relievers, including Ross Wolf.

Burns is 1-0 with a 1.64 ERA in nine relief appearances for the Rangers this season. He had pitched 7 1/3 scoreless frames since July 7, when he was recalled from Round Rock for his second big league stint this season. Ortiz posted eight scoreless innings in his third go-round with Texas this season after being recalled on July 11. He's 2-1 with a 3.96 ERA in 25 outings this year for the Rangers.
