Tanner Scheppers moving into the rotation hasn’t worked for the Rangers

Injuries forced the Rangers to make some last-minute adjustments to their rotation and they decided to give Tanner Scheppers the Opening Day start despite the fact that he’d never started a big-league game before. It went poorly, as have his other starts, and now Scheppers may not be long for the rotation. Manager Ron Washington declined to feed into that speculation, but Scheppers...

Missed chances doom Rangers against Houston

ARLINGTON, Texas - The Texas Rangers certainly had opportunities to extend their winning streak over the Houston Astros to 13-straight games. Maybe that would have been the case if Tanner Scheppers could have avoided the big inning, as Houston scored five times in the fourth inning Saturday. Maybe that would have been the case if Alex Rios wouldn't have run the Rangers out of...

Rangers fall flat in Fenway

The Red Sox had lost three straight games at home. It was only a matter of time before that streak broke.  Why not have the Rangers do the honors? Right? Sigh. Tanner Scheppers went out to the mound for the second time this season.  I’m not sure the results were much better than his first […]

Scheppers ready to open series against Red Sox

John Lackey has had more trouble against the Texas Rangers in his 12-year career than any other opponent. He didn't have many issues in his first start of 2014.

Daily Fantasy - Start Corey Kluber

Corey Kluber lasted just 3.1 innings in his first start of the season for the Cleveland Indians, allowing 8 hits and 5 earned runs to the Oakland Athletics.  But Kluber is a much better pitcher than his first outing and will get the San Diego Padres bats today, who have managed just 12 runs to start the season over 6 games.  Kluber finished last season 5-0 after July and the Indians...

Tanner Scheppers atop unexpected Rangers rotation

Not even general manager Jon Daniels could announce the Texas Rangers’ season-opening rotation without having a little fun, offering a whole dollar to the media member who could correctly guess the No. 5 starter. But even the first four Daniels named Wednesday, the club’s last day at the Surprise Recreation Campus, were unexpected as a whole. Only left-hander Martin Perez survived...
