Texas Rangers right-handed starting pitcher Alexi Ogando made it out of Tuesday's bullpen session pain-free, lining himself up for another tomorrow. While that's certainly good news, Ogando told T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com that he still doesn't feel 100 percent. "It's getting better but it's not there yet," Ogando said. "It's probably about 85 percent." The Rangers will again evaluate Ogando and his inflamed shoulder following his next session. While he's making progress, the team still doesn't have a firm return date set for him. Considering he'll have to log innings in the minors prior to his activation, Sullivan believes it's safe to assume that Ogando won't rejoin Texas until after the All-Star break. When Ogando does begin his stint in the minors, Sullivan notes that the Rangers will likely want him to make at least two appearances before he's activated. While they don't want to rush him back from injury, Texas does hope to see what rotation options it has prior to the July 31 trade deadline. When healthy, Ogando has been one of Texas' top starters. Over 10 appearances this season, the 29-year-old has posted an ERA and WHIP of 2.93 and 1.229. So far this season, the Rangers have dealt with injuries to Ogando, Martin Perez and Matt Harrison, along with Colby Lewis rehabbing from his ailment. They've depended on young arms such as Justin Grimm and Nick Tepesch to fill in. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
