Rangers manager Jeff Banister: no roles set in bullpen


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2015) Rangers manager Jeff Banister said after Sunday's game that all roles in his bullpen are up for grabs, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Closer Neftali Feliz blew his third save of the season on Saturday against the Indians when he surrendered a three-run homer in the ninth. Tanner Scheppers and Shawn Tolleson both threw at the back end of the bullpen on Sunday, allowing one hit over three scoreless innings. 

"Brought all of our guys in, told each one of them, individually, collectively, that right now as we sit, nobody has a specific role, that we are going to find what is the best match for this bullpen, for this ballclub," Banister said to MLB.com. "We're going to continue to look at the hitters who are coming up each inning and what's the best fit or the best matchup with the best arm that we have out there at any given time."

Banister noted Feliz will fight to fight for his role.

"I didn't say that Feliz was not our closer," Banister said. "Every one of them are out there to pitch when we pick up the phone and call on them to be ready. … That was where we felt was the best place for Tolly to pitch."


Rangers put Ross Detwiler on DL


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

RHP Tanner Scheppers was called up from Triple-A to take Detwiler's spot. 

The Rangers also called up Ross Ohlendorf from Triple-A. Ohlendorf hasn't made a Major League appearance since September 18, 2013. He was 2-1, 4.35 in Triple A.

To open a spot on the 40-man roster, pitcher Kyuji Fujikawa was designated for assignment. 


Rangers recall Alex Claudio, option Tanner Scheppers to Triple-A


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/27/2015) The Rangers have recalled pitcher Alexander Claudio from the minors and optioned pitcher Tanner Scheppers to Triple-A Round Rock, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram

"I don't foresee this as being a long-term deal," Rangers manager Jeff Banister said of Scheppers' demotion, per MLB.com. "Tanner will be and is one of the best we have. But you need to have some consistency and sometimes you have a couple things you might need to work on, it's better to work at a level that you can slow it down a little bit."

Claudio posted a 1-0 record with a 1.86 ERA in six appearances for Triple-A Round Rock this season. Scheppers struggled in his last few appearances, posting an 11.25 ERA with four strikeouts and four walks in four innings of work.


Rangers' Tanner Scheppers still looking for a rhythm on the mound


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/26/2015) 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
(4/19/2015) 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.

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."
