Tanner Scheppers hit hard again


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/17/2014) Rangers pitcher  Tanner Scheppers struggled yet again Thursday, though the offense rallied to bail him out in an 8-6 win over the Mariners.

Scheppers was tagged for six earned runs in 2 1/3 innings, with all of the damage coming in a big third inning. He tossed two scoreless innings to open the game, but quickly came apart in the third, allowing five hits -- including a pair of home runs --and a walk, before being pulled after just one out.

Scheppers ultimately allowed six runs in 2 1/3 innings, raising his ERA to 9.82 after four starts. He avoided the loss as the Rangers rallied, leaving him with an 0-1 record heading into his next start, scheduled for Tuesday in Oakland. 


Rangers drop another Tanner Scheppers start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2014) Rangers starting pitcher Tanner Scheppers pitched deep into Saturday's game against the Astros, but struggled yet again in a 6-5 loss in extra-innings.

Scheppers was staked to a 2-0 lead after two innings, but a big fourth inning proved costly. He was tagged for five runs in that frame, with the big blow coming on a three-run home run by Robbie Grossman.

Scheppers ended up allowing five runs on four hits and a walk in seven innings, while striking out six batters. He was bailed out as the Rangers' offense rallied before ultimately falling in 10 innings.

Scheppers is 0-1 with a 7.88 ERA in the first three starts of his career, though he has topped 90 pitches in each. His next start is set for Thursday against the Mariners. 


Texas realigns rotation heading into Houston series


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/10/2014) The Rangers are delaying starting pitcher Colby Lewis' return to the rotation by a few days, so the team realigned its rotation plans for a weekend series vs. Houston.

Yu Darvish will start the series opener Friday, and he will be followed by Tanner Scheppers Saturday and Martin Perez Sunday. 

The delay in Lewis' return doesn't have to do with his surgically repaired hip. The Rangers are waiting to see if third baseman Adrian Beltre (quadriceps) will need a trip to the disabled list. If Beltre goes on the DL, then the team will have a roster spot for Lewis. If he doesn't, then the Rangers will have to make another move to get him on the roster.

Therefore, Lewis and Robbie Ross are expected to start the first two games of the Seattle series, which starts Monday. The alignment depends on when the Rangers decide to make a roster move.


Tanner Scheppers surrenders two runs vs. Red Sox


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/7/2014) Rangers pitcher Tanner Scheppers gave up two earned runs on nine hits and one walk in five innings while striking out three in his team's 5-1 loss to the Red Sox Monday.

It was a nice rebound performance for Scheppers (0-1), who gave up seven runs in four innings during his debut on Opening Day. While Boston was able to collect nine hits off him, none were for extra bases. His next start should come Sunday against the Astros.


Tanner Scheppers eager to make second start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) Rangers pitcher Tanner Scheppers is eager to make his second career start Monday at Boston after giving up seven runs in his season debut last Monday against the Phillies. Scheppers is hoping an adjustment in his delivery will help get better results, per the Fort-Worth Star Telegram.

"You learn a lot more from the bad ones than the good ones," he said. "For me, it’s about extension and keeping my from side closed. Pretty simple adjustments."


Stick with Tanner Scheppers for now


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(3/31/2014) Some fringy starting pitchers are worth swapping out for the hot hand after one bad start. I don't believe Tanner Scheppers is one of them.

Granted, he doesn't have any kind of track record as a starter, which makes Monday's shellacking against Philadelphia all the more discouraging, but his upside in the role remains too high for you to risk losing him to someone else. Particularly in Head-to-Head points leagues, where you can start him at relief pitcher, he's a potential game-changer. A reliable starting pitcher in a relief pitcher spot gives you a leg up on every schlub starting a closer there.

But doesn't this start prove Scheppers is unreliable? Well, it's only one. The timing of it infates its significance, but any pitcher is capable of a bad start. Look at Cliff Lee, who faced him Monday. Are you worried about his eight earned runs in five innings? Jose Fernandez had a two-start stretch last April in which he allowed nine earned runs in nine innings. What if you had cut him then?

When you choose to cut a pitcher after a bad start this time of year, it's less because you're giving up on him than because you're confident he'll slip through the cracks for you to claim him later should the need arise. Given Scheppers' dual eligibility, I'm not sure that's true for him.


Tanner Scheppers surrenders seven runs on Opening Day


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2014) Rangers pitcher Tanner Scheppers had a miserable opener Monday, giving up seven earned runs on eight hits and three walks in four innings while striking out two in his team's 14-10 loss to the Phillies.

Scheppers was tabbed to start Opening Day due to an injury to ace Yu Darvish, but he was tagged for six runs in the second inning, including four on a grand slam by Phillies shortstop Jimmy Rollins. He gave up another in the fourth before calling it a day. Scheppers didn't allow his seventh run of the 2013 season until June 30 while posting a fantastic year out of the bullpen. He'll hope his second career start Sunday against the Rays goes much better.
