Ogando still feels inflammation in shoulder


ARLINGTON, Texas -- Alexi Ogando threw long toss Tuesday, but the right-hander said he's still dealing with some inflammation in his shoulder.

"As far as pain it doesn't feel like pain," Ogando said. "It just feels like inflammation."

Ogando will continue to throw off flat ground, but it hasn't been determined when he will throw off a mound again. Ogando's been on the disabled list since June 9 (retroactive to June 6) and is eligible to come off the 15-day disabled list on Friday.

In other updates:

  • Left-hander Matt Harrison, rehabbing from two back surgeries for a inflamed nerve in his lower back, threw 60 feet on Tuesday and will move up to 70 feet next week.

  • Right-hander reliever Joakim Soria (Tommy John surgery rehab) is expected to make his first rehab appearance on Thursday with Double-A Frisco.

  • Colby Lewis (right flexor pronator surgery rehab) threw from a mound for the first time in three weeks on Monday and will do so again on Thursday.
