Worth noting

• Ogando, who is on the disabled list with a triceps inflammation in his right arm, has been playing catch and said everything is feeling better. But Ogando said he is only throwing around "40 percent," and added, "I don't know when they'll let me throw hard."

• The Rangers promoted pitcher Nick McBride from Class A Myrtle Beach to Triple-A Round Rock. McBride was a fifth-round pick in the 2009 First-Year Player Draft from Ragsdale (N.C.) High who was 0-2 with a 1.96 ERA in 12 appearances for Myrtle Beach.

• Jurickson Profar drove in two runs with a groundout and a sacrifice fly in Monday's 9-2 loss to the Athletics. He is the fifth player in Rangers history to drive in multiple runs from the ninth spot in the order without the benefit of a hit. The others were Sundberg in 1976, Jerry Browne in 1988, Ruben Rivera in 2002 and D'Angelo Jimenez in '06.

• The Rangers are promoting pitcher Kyle McClellan from Double-A Frisco to Triple-A Round Rock. McClellan, signed as a free agent in the offseason, pitched in 261 games with the Cardinals over the past five seasons and is trying to come back from a strained shoulder injury sustained in Spring Training.
