Scheppers signs.

The Rangers
have signed supplemental first-round pick Tanner Scheppers, a hard-throwing
righthander who some in the prospect media suggested at draft time was a more
highly rated prospect than first-rounder Matt Purke.  Though terms have not been disclosed, the
deal is reportedly for more than $1 million, and it is not a major league contract.  Scheppers, a Fresno State
product who was not subject to the August 17 signing deadline since he pitched
in the independent leagues this spring (voiding his amateur eligibility), will attend
the Rangers’ fall instructional league program, which kicked off earlier this
week.

 

This is big
news.
