Alexi Ogando Will Pitch Out Of Bullpen

This isn't terribly shocking, but the Texas Rangers have informed Alexi Ogando that he will be a reliever for the Rangers this year. Ogando had his outings stretched out over the course of the spring as it was a possibility that he could end up earning one of Texas' rotation spots. That, however, is not the case, and Ogando will once again pitch out of the bullpen.

Ogando's role in the bullpen is yet to be determined of course. The decision on Neftali Feliz will dictate what role Ogando will serve in Texas' bullpen. If Feliz is inserted into the starting rotation, then Ogando would be one of the in-house candidates for the Rangers to close. If not, Ogando will be one of the setup men.
