Scheppers on the disabled list

The Rangers have placed pitcher Tanner Scheppers on the disabled list with inflammation in his right elbow and forearm. He will not throw for ten days. An MRI showed no structural damage to the ligament and the Rangers are not hoping this is serious. Scheppers had some soreness in Spring Training and that might be connected to this.

Nick Martinez is likely to start on Tuesday against Oakland. Left-hander Aaron Poreda has been called up to take that spot for now.

Think he’ll go back to the pen now?

He should. Harrison should be coming back soon and it would be nice seeing Scheppers anchoring that bullpen.

“… and the Rangers are not hoping this is serious.” Really? Is that anything like “… and the Rangers are hoping this is not serious.”
