Minor Notes

Boggs has a 1.5ops over his last 10 games while David Murphy has batted .150 over his last 10. I'm just sayin'....

TX plans to stretch out Scheppers in OKC so that he can moved into the rotation should they decide to go that route. A couple of interesting notes from Daniels via TRS:

"He wasn't getting challenged at Frisco," general manager Jon Daniels said. "We want to force him to pitch more and get the ball down." The Rangers also want to build up Scheppers' innings at Oklahoma City. The plan is for him to pitch two innings a couple of times a week, three innings a couple of times a week and then four innings. That would put him in a position to move to the rotation at some point. "That's basically the thinking, building him up to starting," Daniels said. "That's what we're working for, but we reserve the right to adjust based on what's going on and our need up here."

He had this to say about Salty's throwing issues:

"Coming back from injury, he's throwing from a lower arm slot and he's doing some drills to get back on top of the ball."

He also noted that TX has no plans to call Holland up to the bullpen, rather,they intend to keep him as a starter until he is needed in that capacity for the big club.
