Nolan Ryan joins Galloway & Company to discuss the latest Rangers news, the mistakes the team has been making and possible trades.
Ogando was out with right biceps tendinitis before pitching 5 2/3 innings and getting a no decision in Wednesday's 3-2 victory over the Red Sox.
The Rangers recalled right-hander Josh Lindblom from Triple-A Round Rock.
Lindblom, who started a game for the Rangers on May 20 against Oakland, will be in uniform for Sunday's game at Toronto. He is the probable starter for the Rangers at home Monday against Cleveland.
Ogando's transition from the bullpen to the rotation has been sidetracked twice now by injuries this season. He is 4-2 with a 2.93 ERA in 10 starts with the Rangers this season. He was on the 15-day DL from May 16-June 4 with the biceps tendinitis.

Ogando was in the Rangers' rotation in 2011 when they made their second consecutive trip to the World Series, but ended up in the bullpen in the postseason. He had a 10.13 ERA in the World Series.
He was put back in the bullpen in 2012, throwing 66 innings in 58 appearances. He did make one start.
The Rangers decided to return Ogando to the rotation this season and he spent all of spring training as a starter, unlike 2011 when an injury to Colby Lewis forced the Rangers to put Ogando in the rotation late in the spring.
Lindblom, who turns 26 on Saturday, is 6-0 with a 2.04 ERA in 10 games/nine starts for Round Rock. He allowed four runs in 4 2/3 innings in a 9-2 loss to Oakland on May 20 and was returned to Round Rock the next day.
