The Rangers placed starting pitcher Alexi Ogando on the disabled list, the team announced Thursday.

Ogando was diagnosed with right biceps tendinitis the morning after he allowed two runs on four hits with one walk and three strikeouts over six innings in a 6-2 win against Oakland. The righthander has started the 2013 season with a 4-2 record and 3.08 ERA in nine starts.

Ogando had one trip to the the DL last season with a right groin strain he sustained running the bases in an interleague game.

The Rangers have recalled right-handed reliever Cory Burns from Triple A Round Rock for the short-term. The team plans to bring Josh Lindblom up from Round Rock to make Ogando's start in the rotation. Lindblom is 4-0 with a 2.08 ERA in eight Triple-A games, including seven starts.
