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.
