Tanner Scheppers has been outstanding for the Texas Rangers in 2013

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by joelapinski on Thursday 26 September 2013 at 11:43 am

26-year old righty reliever Tanner Scheppers has been outstanding for the Rangers in 2013.  He has pitched in 71 games (0 starts) for the Rangers so far this year and he is 6-2 with 1 save, a 1.88 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP.  Scheppers has given up only 54 hits and 24 walks while whiffing 55 batters in his first 71 2/3 innings this year, which are impressive numbers.  Scheppers has now pitched in 110 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Rangers and he is 7-3 with 2 saves, a 2.68 ERA and a 1.29 WHIP.  Scheppers is going to be a big part of the Rangers’ pen for a long, long time as long as he can stay healthy.

Neftali Feliz is all the way back for the Texas Rangers

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by joelapinski on Sunday 22 September 2013 at 8:36 am

25-year old righty reliever Neftali Feliz tore his elbow up as a starting pitcher last year, but he’s back in the saddle for the Rangers now.  He pitched in 8 games (1 start) on a rehab assignment in Rookie+AAA-ball this year and he was 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 0.84 WHIP.  Feliz has also pitched in 6 games (0 starts) for the Rangers so far this year and he is 0-0 with a 0.00 ERA and a 1.50 WHIP.  Feliz has given up 5 hits and 2 walks while whiffing 4 batters in his first 5 2/3 innings for the Rangers in 2013.  Feliz has now pitched in 168 games (7 starts) in his first five years with the Rangers and he is 10-7 with 74 saves, a 2.61 ERA and a 1.01 WHIP.  I was screaming on this site about how stupid the Rangers were in moving Feliz into the rotation and I was right about it.  Hindsight is always 20/20, but the Rangers should abandon all thoughts of making Feliz a starting pitcher.

West.

The Texas Rangers shouldn’t deal Joe Nathan

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well, Trade Rumors by joelapinski on Tuesday 30 July 2013 at 8:52 am

Reports have betting surfacing that the Rangers might consider dealing 38-year old righty closer Joe Nathan for a big outfield bat.  The Rangers have guys capable of closing, but Nathan has been almost automatic this year.  Nathan has pitched in 44 games (0 starts) for the Rangers so far this year and he is 1-1 with 32 saves, a 1.73 ERA and a 0.84 WHIP.  Nathan has given up 24 hits and 11 walks while whiffing 44 batters in his first 41 2/3 innings this year, which are eye popping numbers.  Nathan has now pitched in 110 games (0 starts) in his first two years with the Rangers and he is 4-6 with 69 saves, a 2.38 ERA and a 0.97 WHIP.  Nathan is currently #6 in Rangers’ history with his 69 saves.  The Rangers should just say no in regards to dealing Joe Nathan.

Tanner Schneppers could be the 4th All-Star for the Texas Rangers

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by joelapinski on Monday 8 July 2013 at 3:35 pm

26-year old righty reliever Tanner Schneppers is one of the five pitchers up for the Final Vote for the All-Star Game.  He is competing against Koji Uehara, David Robertson, Steve Delabar and Joaquin Benoit.  Schneppers has pitched in 42 games (0 starts) for the Rangers so far this year and he is 5-1 with a 1.88 ERA and a 1.12 WHIP.  He has only given up 31 hits and 17 walks while whiffing 29 batters in his first 43 innings this year, which is pretty impressive.

UPDATE:  (7/11/2013) - Tanner Schneppers has lost out in the Final Vote to Steve Delabar of the Blue Jays.

Neal Cotts has been electric this year for the Texas Rangers

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by joelapinski on Friday 21 June 2013 at 5:07 pm

33-year old lefty reliever Neal Cotts has been outstanding so far this year for the Texas Rangers.  He has pitched in 14 games (0 starts) for the Rangers so far this year and he is 3-1 with a 0.55 ERA and a 0.86 WHIP.  He has only given up 8 hits while whiffing 16 batters in his first 16 1/3 innings so far this year, as he is missing a lot of bats.  He has walked 6 batters so far this year, but his control hasn’t really been an issue so far this year.  The Rangers hope that Cotts keeps up the good work, as pairing him with Robbie Ross gives them a nice pair of lefties out in the pen.

The Texas Rangers are getting good work from a couple of rookie starting pitchers in 2013

Blogged under Bloglockers, Front Page, General, Throwing Well by joelapinski on Monday 3 June 2013 at 6:13 am

24-year old righty starting pitchers Nick Tepesch and Justin Grimm have been lifesavers for the Rangers this year.  They have suffered a lot of injuries to the rotation and Tepesch and Grimm have helped them cushion the blow.  Tepesch has pitched in 10 games (all starts) for the Rangers so far this year and he is 3-4 with a 3.44 ERA and a 1.27 WHIP.  He has given up 56 hits and 14 walks while whiffing 39 batters in his first 55 innings pitched this year.  Grimm has pitched in 9 games (all starts) for the Rangers so far this year and he is 5-3 with a 3.93 ERA and a 1.44 WHIP.  Grimm has given up 62 hits and 14 walks while whiffing 44 batters in his first 52 2/3 innings so far this year.  Tepesch and Grimm have the potential to keep up the good work and the Rangers hope that they do exactly that.
