CLEVELAND – Texas Rangers RHP Tanner Scheppers was not available in Friday’s extra-inning loss to Cleveland because he was dealing with the after-effects of being attacked by “several young males,” on a street two blocks from the team hotel Thursday night.

Scheppers said he was out getting food Thursday night when he was attacked and “sucker-punched.” He did not recall the time, but did contact the police. A report was not filed after Scheppers said police told him it was unlikely that anybody would be apprehended.

“They said it happens a lot, actually,” said Scheppers, who had a blackened left eye and two small cuts above his nose.“I’m just lucky nothing serious really happened. I’m good to pitch for [Saturday]. I was in the wrong place at the wrong time.”

Scheppers had a headache after the attack and also was a bit shaken. Rangers officials said the team notified MLB security officials.

The Rangers did not use Scheppers in an 8-8 game Friday, opting to try and get three innings out of Jason Frasor. As he started a third inning, Frasor allowed two hits and then a game-ending homer to Ryan Raburn. After the game, manager Ron Washington gave mixed reports on Scheppers availability, telling reporters he was available, but indicating to his post-game radio interview that he was not.

Karl, any local news up that way about this? So far it seems like only out of state sites are reporting it.

Is this another case of black male teens wilding again?

Sucker punching white people is a gang sport with these animals.

There you go again Paco.

One would think that after being burned by Glenn Beck so often, you'd restrain yourself.

I posted a third party article. How is that me "repeating the lies" of the player?

ESPN, CBS Sports and Fox Sports all published the same information at the time. Are they guilty of being "untruthful"?
You're a piss poor mind reader, Eric. And you have your head buried in black ass, to boot.

No one wants to wait five minutes to get the truth. It's so much more fun to publish half a story to allow alarmists and instigators do the rest.

Obama and his minions lie every day, and the mainstream outlets publish it all without blushing.

Exhibit A:

"First Lady: Barack's Working to Free Americans from 'Any Form of Public Assistance'"

Versus the truth:

"...on President Obama’s watch, means-tested-welfare spending has increased by more than a third."
