Ogando still feels inflammation in shoulder
|Ron Washington joins Fitzsimmons & Durrett for his weekly visit to discuss the magnitude of Monday's win against Oakland, how he plans on using Jurickson Profar and how to handle a struggling ballclub.
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.

- 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.
