Detwiler goes on DL; Scheppers recalled

Rangers left-handed starter Ross Detwiler is headed to the 15-day disabled list with inflammation in his left shoulder.

Detwiler began feeling pain Friday after he threw a career-high 108 pitches in five innings Thursday in a loss to the Royals. Detwiler is 0-5 this season with a 6.95 ERA.

28-year-old right-hander Tanner Scheppers will take Detwiler’s roster spot after being recalled from Triple-A Round Rock. Scheppers was a candidate to be the Rangers setup-man this season, but was sent down after posting an 11.25 ERA in five appearances in April.
