The Rangers placed Scheppers (knee) on the 60-day disabled list Monday, Rangers VP of Comm. John Blake reports.

Scheppers underwent knee surgery last week and is facing an extended absence, so the Rangers decided he would go on the 60-day disabled list to open up a spot on the 40-man roster for recent acquisition Ian Desmond. It's not entirely clear when Scheppers will be ready to pitch again, but he is not expected to do until the latter portion of the season.
