Description: The Rangers have announced that Tanner Scheppers has unseated Alexi Ogando from the rotation, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
Insight: Scheppers was Texas' set-up man last season and had a 1.88 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP and 59 Ks in 76 2/3 innings. Texas has had plenty of success moving relievers into the starting rotation in recent years. Ogando will shift back to the bullpen and serve as Joakim Soria's set-up man.
