It's not entirely clear when Scheppers will be ready to pitch again, but he is not expected to do until the latter portion of the season.

Scheppers needs knee surgery and will be out until the second half, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

EDGE Analysis

Scheppers suffered from knee issues in 2015 and 2012, so it's not too shocking he needs work down there. The 29-year-old mostly profiles as organizational bullpen depth at this point, so this is news that carries little impact for the Rangers and fantasy players.

Scheppers (finger) agreed to a one-year deal with the Rangers on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran righty, who turns 29 on Jan. 17, has had many valleys and a few peaks in his four years in the major leagues. Once viewed as a potential late-inning arm, and briefly tested out as a starter, Scheppers now figures to be organizational depth, given how loaded the Rangers are at the back of the bullpen.

Scheppers suffered a cut on his right index finger Sunday and required five stitches, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

EDGE Analysis

Although the Rangers have yet to formally submit their ALDS roster, Scheppers will almost certainly be left off it, as the right-hander did not even travel with his teammates to Toronto for the start of the series. It seems Scheppers, who posted a 5.63 ERA and 1.57 WHIP in 42 appearances this season, may have sustained the cut while partying after the team clinched the NL West on the final day of the regular season.
