Scheppers, pro debuts, etc.
Quick post today. First, wanted to let those who haven’t seen it yet about the story I wrote regarding the health of Tanner Scheppers‘ right shoulder. There are some teams who feel he has a 50-percent labrum tear and will need surgery. The Rangers, while acknowledging an issue, don’t think it’s as severe.
I’m not 100-percent positive, but I’m pretty sure that Marc Krauss became the first 2009 draftee to make his professional debut on Wednesday. He was the DH for South Bend in the second game of a Midwest League doubleheader. He went 1-for-3 with a double in the Silver Hawks’ 2-1 loss. The Diamondbacks took the University of Ohio product in the second round, No. 64 overall.
Great CWS matchup tonight, ASU vs. UNC in an elimination game. Potential 2010 first rounder Matt Harvey goes for the Tar Heels.
