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, )
