News: Scheppers lasted just 2.1 innings Thursday against Seattle, surrendering six runs on six hits and three walks. Impact: Fortunately, he received no decision and the Rangers eventually came out on top. Scheppers has now been blown up three times in four starts this year, making him a highly risky fantasy option despite the upside he's shown in the minors and as a member of the Texas bullpen.(RotoWire, )

News: Scheppers allowed five runs in six innings with seven strikeouts. Every run he gave up was in the fourth.

News: Despite lasting seven innings, Scheppers was knocked around for five earned runs on four hits -- one of which was three-run homer -- in a 6-5 loss to the Astros on Saturday. He did not earn a decision. Impact: The third-year Ranger has struggled in his first season as a starter, allowing 21 hits, five walks and 14 earned runs in 16 innings of work. His ERA is up to 7.88, so you may want to look elsewhere for starting pitching while he figures it out - or gets sent back to the bullpen.(RotoWire, )

News: Scheppers gave up two runs on nine hits and a walk over five innings in Monday's 5-1 loss to the Red Sox. Impact: Scheppers didn't give up seven runs like in his first outing, but he still wasn't particularly sharp. That said, the Red Sox benefited from soft singles, and none of the nine hits Scheppers allowed went for extra bases. It was a major step up from his first outing, even though he struck out just two batters and faced a lineup that dropped off hard after the first four spots. Scheppers draws a great matchup in his next start, which is scheduled for Sunday at home versus the Astros.(RotoWire, )

News: Scheppers became the first pitcher to make their first career start on Opening Day since Fernando Valenzuela in 1981, but was shelled, allowing eight hits and seven runs in Monday's loss to Philadelphia. Impact: Scheppers' first act in his transition from the bullpen to the rotation was about as bad as it could possibly be, but he'll get a chance to redeem himself in his next scheduled start Sunday at Tampa Bay.(STATS, 5:34pm)
