Ogando in 'pen; Tepesch slated to start Tuesday

ARLINGTON -- The Rangers are leaning toward keeping Nick Tepesch in the rotation and having him start Tuesday against the Rays. Alexi Ogando remains an option, but manager Ron Washington admitted the club is leaning toward Tepesch.

"As of right now it's Tepesch, but that could change," Washington said.

Both pitched Sunday against the Angels. Tepesch started and threw 63 pitches over 3 1/3 innings. Ogando was the winning pitcher in relief while throwing 23 pitches over 1 1/3 innings.

Ogando was back in the bullpen Tuesday night. Tepesch is not going to work out of the bullpen right now.

"He's going to prepare for a start," Washington said. "We have enough arms in the bullpen."
