Rangers' Tanner Scheppers still looking for a rhythm on the mound
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5:18 pm ET) Rangers pitcher Tanner Scheppers wants to figure out why he's scuffling on the mound so dar this season. Scheppers spent Sunday watching tape of himself on the mound with pitching coach Mike Maddux to figure out just what is ailing him, according to MLB.com.
"I know I have to make adjustments," said Scheppers. "I'm beating myself up. The free bags are catching up to me. I need to trust myself and throw the ball over the plate."
Scheppers, who currently boasts an 11.25 ERA in four innings of work, has struggled since coming back from an early ankle injury to begin the year.
"I would be lying to you if I said I was exactly where I want to be," Scheppers said. "I'm not. It is about making adjustments. I understand I need to come in and get outs."
Manager Jeff Banister continues to have faith in Scheppers and will turn to him in the eighth inning set-up role.
"I still believe in Tanner and who he is," Banister said. "The guy is coming off a year where he was a starter, got hurt and then put into the bullpen. We'll continue to look at it and get him on a roll."
Tanner Scheppers takes blame for Rangers' pen meltdown
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(4/19/15) Reliever Tanner Scheppers was not sharp Sunday and it cost the Rangers as they squandered a late lead in an 11-10 loss to the Mariners.
The set-up man came into the game in the eighth inning with Texas ahead 10-6, but he walked three of the four batters he faced, the start of an eventual slide that would finish with a walk-off single against closer Neftali Feliz by Nelson Cruz.
In his second appearance since coming off the disabled list, Scheppers struggled to find the strike zone or a comfortable release point.
"I was battling myself," Scheppers said. "I couldn't get on top of the baseball and couldn't make the adjustment."
