Tanner Scheppers promoted to Triple-A

The Rangers have promoted RHP Tanner Scheppers from Double-A Frisco to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Scheppers, 23, gave up one run in 11 innings at Frisco for a 0.82 ERA with an impressive 19 strikeouts and maybe more impressive zero walks.

Why the promotion?

"He wasn't being challenged at Double-A," Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said via email.

So we'll see how Scheppers does against tougher competition at Triple-A, but his climb toward the majors continues.
