Rangers pitcher Tanner Scheppers headed for bullpen role


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/28/2015) Rangers pitcher Tanner Scheppers is likely to end up pitching out of the bullpen in 2015, reports MLB.com.

Scheppers, who spent 2014 as a starter, struggled with injuries and will likely be the set-up in the eighth inning.

"We talked to him about what his role is right now," manager Jeff Banister said. "He is pitching significant innings at the back end of the game. We are looking for Tanner to be one of our guys, along with Neftali to lock down the game and help us win the games we are supposed to win."

Scheppers is still building back his arm strength and is hoping to regain a bigger role with the club at some point.

"Of course I have big expectations for myself," Scheppers said. "If you're in the big leagues, you want to be a big key on the team you are playing on. But I have found out the hard way that if you look too far ahead, you get excited and then have a setback, it brings you back to earth."
