Rangers drop another Tanner Scheppers start
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

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

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

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

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

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.
