Texas, which acquired Blackley last week, will have to make another move before Tuesday's game to add Blackley to its 25-man roster. Analisis: Blackley will fill in for Alexi Ogando, who has an inflamed nerve in his right shoulder. Matt Garza was scheduled to pitch Tuesday, but moved up a day and pitched on regular rest Monday night. Blackley was 1-1 with a 4.89 ERA in 42 relief appearances for Houston this season before being designated for assignment Aug. 8. He cleared waivers and accepted an outright assignment to Triple-A Oklahoma City before being traded.
