Scheppers tossed a scoreless inning for his first save Tuesday against the Astros.

EDGE Analysis

The Rangers bullpen was exhausted from an extra-innings contest Monday night, leaving Scheppers in line for his first save opportunity since returning from the DL September 6. Scheppers has now recorded 10 outs without allowing a single baserunner, and he figures to be a key part of Texas's bullpen down the stretch, perhaps serving as the setup man to Sam Dyson.

Scheppers (knee) was activated from the 60-day DL on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

February knee surgery put Scheppers on the shelf for an extended period but he's reached the end of the long recovery process. Scheppers struggled last year but he was excellent during his rehab assignment, allowing just one run on six hits in eight innings between Double-A Frisco and Triple-A Round Rock. He won't be in the mix to close but Scheppers may quickly become a key part of the bridge to Sam Dyson.

EDGE Analysis

Scheppers could slide into a semi-prominent role in the Texas bullpen with Jeremy Jeffress' status still very much up in the air, though Matt Bush and Sam Dyson continue to provide ample support in the final two innings.

The Rangers placed Scheppers (knee) on the 60-day disabled list Monday, Rangers VP of Comm. John Blake reports.

EDGE Analysis

Scheppers underwent knee surgery last week and is facing an extended absence, so the Rangers decided he would go on the 60-day disabled list to open up a spot on the 40-man roster for recent acquisition Ian Desmond. 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.
