This is going to be the rare no-content day, seeing as how I'm completely tied up ... but the timing is fortuitous, it seems, since there's not much going on right now, and since the only "news" is Ron Washington declaring on the Norm-A-Thon on Monday that the Rangers wouldn't go with a six-man rotation, and Kevin Goldstein offering up the following assessment of Tanner Scheppers:
The point at which Scheppers went south is clear. He started the 2010 season by dominating out of the bullpen and was on the verge of the big leagues when the Rangers decided to see if he could work as a starter.
He's simply never been the same since, and a return to the bullpen has not brought his stuff all the way back to 2010 levels.
"I think he's still a potential seventh- or eighth-inning guy, but I'd be wary of him in a deal," said one front office member. "There are a lot of red flags, from the control, the delivery, and most of all the injury history."
So, there you go.
