      Rangers' Tanner Scheppers: Avoids arbitration with Rangers

      Scheppers (finger) agreed to a one-year deal with the Rangers on Friday, avoiding arbitration. The veteran righty, who turns 29 on Jan. 17, has had many valleys and a few peaks in his four years in the major leagues. Once viewed as a potential late-inning arm, and briefly tested out as a starter, Scheppers now figures to be organizational depth, given how loaded the Rangers are at the back of the bullpen.

      Rangers' Tanner Scheppers likely out of ALDS due to finger injury

      Rangers pitcher Tanner Scheppers suffered a cut on his right index finger Sunday and required five stitches, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Although the Rangers have yet to formally submit their ALDS roster, Scheppers will almost certainly be left off it, as the right-hander did not even travel with his teammates to Toronto for the start of the series. It seems Scheppers, who posted a 5.63 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in 42 appearances this season, may have sustained the cut while partying after the team clinched the NL West on the final day of the regular season.

      Rangers manager Jeff Banister: no roles set in bullpen

      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."
