  1. Might want to revise your Scheppers write-up.

  2. Yeah…

    Just FYI, Scheppers was moved back into the starting role three starts ago on June the 13th.

  3. It was poorly worded on my part — I knew that, I was just saying that I think Scheppers is a reliever at the end of the day. I think his problems vs. LHH will be exacerbated in a multi-inning role, and I think his history of arm issues should be worrisome (I know he’s all fixed up, too). Where I think Feliz could really succeed as a starter, I think Scheppers is the rare prospect that might be better in the ‘pen. Wording changed. Thanks.

  4. Can’t disagree with you there!

  5. Echoing others here, but this is from today’s ESPN Chat with Jon Daniels

    ” We’ve been monitoring Tanner’s innings this year because of the limited # he’s thrown the past few years. He’s now going 4ip each time out, and will likely go 5 at some point in OKC. The initial plan was to consider him more in the bullpen in 2010 if we have a need up here, though that could change. We envision developing him as a starter longterm.”

  6. I just love the name “Tanner Scheppers.” Though I have to say, he’s the one I least expected to make it to the majors of all the “Bad News Bears.”

  7. To go a step further, it seems that he is under pretty strict orders to be focusing heavily on his change while pitching as a starter to further refine a 3rd pitch. Do not be surprised to see his more than stellar numbers take a dip some i the second half….

    If he gets a change to be more than a fringe MLB offering, look out.
