  • Rangers' Glenn Otto: Goes on 60-day IL

    The Rangers placed Otto (lat) on the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Otto injured his right lat toward the end of spring camp and is now going to miss at least the first two months of the 2023 season. The Rangers haven't provided an official timeline for Otto's return, though the right-hander is expected to avoid surgery.

  • Rangers' Glenn Otto: Could hit 60-day injured list

    Otto (lat) has been shut down for three weeks and may wind up on the 60-day injured list, Jeff Wilson of reports.

  • Rangers' Glenn Otto: Undergoing MRI on lat muscle

    Otto will undergo an MRI on his right lat muscle, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Otto told reporters Sunday morning that the muscle was still sore, and the Rangers won't take any risks. The 26-year-old right-hander was scratched from Saturday's start because of tightness in his lat. There should be an update on Otto's status after the results of the imaging are announced.

  • Rangers' Glenn Otto: Scratched with right lat tightness

    Otto was scratched from Saturday's scheduled start in the Cactus League with right lat tightness, Kennedi Landry of reports.

    With Otto out, the Rangers will have Chase Lee start in the right-hander's place. Otto will likely need to undergo testing to make sure there's no structural damage. There should be an update on his status in the coming days.

  • Rangers' Glenn Otto: Gives up first-inning runs

    Otto allowed two runs on one hit and one walk while striking out five over two innings in Friday's spring game against Kansas City.

    Otto opened the game with a four-pitch walk to Bobby Witt, who later came around on Vinnie Pasquantino's home run three batters later. "It starts with throwing strikes," manager Bruce Bochy told Kennedi Landry of "That's the obvious. He's got great stuff. But he's got to pound the strike zone and throw quality strikes." The right-hander started 27 games for the Rangers in 2022, but he's not expected to return to the rotation after Texas added three veteran starters during the offseason. Otto could be a candidate for the bullpen, but a roster spot is not guaranteed.

  • Rangers' Glenn Otto: Quality start in finale

    Otto (7-10) got the win after he pitched six innings, giving up two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out five in Wednesday's season finale versus the Yankees.

    Otto kept the Yankees in check Wednesday, limiting them to six total baserunners while notching his second straight quality start. He gave up one run in the second inning before Jose Trevino launched a solo homer in the fourth frame, accounting for the final run on his line. Otto will finish the campaign with a 4.64 ERA and 1.33 WHIP while striking out 107 batters over 135.2 innings in 27 starts with the Rangers.

  • Rangers' Glenn Otto: Takes loss in quality start

    Otto (6-10) gave up three earned runs on eight hits and one walk while striking out seven over six innings to take the loss in a 4-1 defeat against the Angels on Friday.

    Otto racked up seven or more strikeouts for the fourth time this season but gave up a couple of home runs that ultimately led to him being saddled with his 10th loss of the year. The strikeout-heavy performance is an encouraging sign from Otto, who has a poor K/BB of 1.7 in 26 starts this season. The 26-year-old right-hander is tentatively expected to make his next start in the final game of the season against the Yankees.

  • Rangers' Glenn Otto: Solid in no-decision

    Otto did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing one run on three hits with one walk over 5.2 innings against the Guardians. He struck out three.

    After walking Steven Kwan on four straight pitches to start the game, Otto went on to retire the next 12 batters he faced. His only major mistake on the night came in the fifth when he left a slider over the plate and served up a solo homer to Oscar Gonzalez to lead off the inning. The right-hander has earned a win in just two of his 12 starts since the All-Star break. He's projected to take the mound again next week against the Angels.

  • Rangers' Glenn Otto: Charged with ninth loss

    Otto (6-9) allowed four runs on seven hits and no walks while striking out three in 3.1 innings to take the loss Sunday against the Rays.

    Otto tossed a scoreless first frame during Sunday's matchup, but he gave up four runs over the next two innings and was forced to settle for his ninth loss of the season. Sunday's start was just the second time this year that Otto hasn't lasted at least four innings, and he's posted a 5.40 ERA and 1.25 WHIP in 18.1 innings over four appearances in September. He projects to make his next start at home against the Guardians on Saturday.

  • Rangers' Glenn Otto: Quality start in Monday's matinee

    Otto didn't factor into the decision in a 3-2 win over the Marlins in the first game of Monday's doubleheader, giving up two runs on three hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out two.

    The right-hander exited the game in line for his ninth loss of the year, but the Rangers' offense got going in the seventh inning. The quality start was Otto's sixth of the season, but three of them have come in eight outings since the beginning of August, a stretch during which he sports a 3.37 ERA and 33:20 K:BB through 42.2 innings.

  • Rangers' Glenn Otto: Chased after four innings

    Otto did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing three runs on five hits and one walk over four innings against Houston. He struck out five.

    Otto never really found his groove Tuesday, as he failed to record a clean inning and allowed runs to score in each of the second, third and fourth innings before being pulled from the game. The start was his first of fewer than five innings since July 12, a stretch in which he only recorded two wins despite a respectable 4.04 ERA. Otto will try to get back on track in his next start, which figures to be at Miami next week.

  • Rangers' Glenn Otto: Fans eight in five innings

    Otto didn't factor in the decision against Boston on Thursday, allowing three runs on four hits and one walk while striking out eight batters over five-plus innings.

    Otto had his strikeout stuff working against the Red Sox, as he notched a season-high eight punchouts while inducing 12 swinging strikes. He departed after giving up a leadoff homer to Alex Verdugo in the sixth inning, but he was in line for the win with Texas up by a run. The Rangers' bullpen collapsed late in the game, however, denying Otto of a second straight victory. The right-hander nonetheless started September on a decent foot after posting a promising 2.93 ERA and 1.23 WHIP across five starts covering 27.2 innings in August. On another positive note, Otto walked only one batter Thursday following a four-game stretch during which he averaged 3.8 free passes per contest.

  • Rangers' Glenn Otto: Wins despite giving up four runs

    Otto (6-8) earned the win against the Tigers on Friday, allowing four runs on five hits while striking out three and walking two over five innings.

    Otto's outing Friday was not pretty, but it did the job. He threw 48 of 80 pitches for strikes across four frames, but was able to pick up the win thanks to an offensive outburst from his team. The righty has only completed six innings five times in 20 starts, whether by design or because of his performance. Friday's four-run clunker raised Otto's ERA to 4.79.

  • Rangers' Glenn Otto: Solid in no-decision

    Otto allowed an unearned run on three hits and three walks with one strikeout in 5.2 innings in a no-decision versus the Twins on Saturday.

    The lone run against Otto came in the fifth inning on a Luis Arraez single after Jake Cave reached on an error. Otto came up one out short of a quality start. Walks have re-emerged as an issue for the 26-year-old -- he's issued 17 free passes across 27.2 innings through his last five starts. He has a 4.66 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 71:52 K:BB through 94.2 innings across 19 starts overall. The right-hander is projected for a home start versus the Tigers next week.

  • Rangers' Glenn Otto: Effectively wild in win

    Otto (5-8) earned the win Monday, allowing one run on two hits and six walks over six innings against the Athletics. He struck out one.

    Otto remarkably got through six innings of one-run ball despite walking six A's batters Monday. The effort was emblematic of his season as a whole, as he has walked fewer than three batters in just seven out of 17 starts this season. Regardless, the quality start brought Otto's ERA under 5.00 for the season. He next lines up to face Minnesota this weekend.

  • Rangers' Glenn Otto: Lasts five innings versus Astros

    Otto pitched five innings, giving up two runs on four hits and four walks while striking out five in Wednesday's extra-inning win over the Astros. He did not factor into the decision.

    Otto allowed one run in the bottom of the second before surrendering a game-tying solo homer to Kyle Tucker in the fourth frame, which knotted the score at 2-2. He was able to pitch a scoreless fifth inning before being removed after the frame. Otto has now allowed at least one home run in five consecutive outings, surrendering six long balls over that stretch. Since returning from the COVID-19-related injured list June 26, the right-hander has posted an inflated 6.12 ERA and 1.48 WHIP with 36 strikeouts over 42.2 innings in nine starts.

  • Rangers' Glenn Otto: Fans seven in loss

    Otto (4-8) allowed two runs on four hits and a walk over six innings Friday, striking out seven and taking the loss against Texas.

    Otto gave up one run through three frames before serving up a go-ahead solo shot to Eloy Jimenez. The 6-foot-3 righty lowered his season ERA to 5.31 after allowing fewer than three runs for just the second time in his last eight appearances. He also tied his season best with seven punchouts. Otto will carry a 64:39 K:BB into his projected outing in Houston next week.
