ARLINGTON, Texas -- Tanner Scheppers felt discomfort in his pitching elbow long before the Texas Rangers went to spring training with a plan to turn the right-hander into a starter. Andrej Sustr Jersey . Scheppers finally said something after the fourth start of his big league career, and now hes headed to the disabled list with elbow inflammation. Texas made the move Friday, a day after Scheppers gave up six runs in the shortest of his starts -- 2 1-3 innings in an 8-6 win over Seattle. General manager Jon Daniels said an MRI showed inflammation in the muscle and no structural damage to the ligament. Scheppers will take 10 days off, then start a throwing program. Scheppers said the elbow didnt feel right as far back as the end of last season, when he led the team with 76 appearances in his second season in the bullpen. "Its something that hasnt gotten better the way that we would like," said Scheppers, who is 0-1 with a 9.82 ERA. "Right now we just want to step back, get healthy, because theres no point in pushing through something like this." Texas replaced Scheppers by selecting the contract of left-hander Aaron Poreda from Triple-A Round Rock. The Rangers made room for Poreda on the 40-man roster by designating infielder Andy Parrino for assignment. Scheppers was Texas opening-day starter because Yu Darvish had a neck strain. Scheppers gave up six runs in the second inning of that game against Philadelphia and surrendered six in the third inning against the Mariners on Thursday. Daniels said Scheppers was examined after reporting soreness during spring training. He was cleared at the time, but now Daniels wonders how healthy he was. "I think it might be connected, that he wasnt feeling 100 per cent, probably wasnt performing at 100 per cent because of it," Daniels said. Scheppers fastball has averaged 93.7 mph this year, according to fangraphs.com, down from 96.3 mph last year. While his velocity was better against the Mariners, six of the first seven hitters reached in the third. Robinson Cano and Corey Hart had back-to-back homers. "My pitches arent doing what they normally are or what they should be doing," Scheppers said. "Its something that could build up and you dont get the results that you want." Daniels said the Rangers had yet to discuss what Scheppers elbow issue will do to his role as a starter. Left-handers Matt Harrison and Joe Saunders could be close to returning when Scheppers is eligible to come off the disabled list May 3. Scheppers was an effective setup man for closer Joe Nathan last year, going 6-2 with a save and a 1.88 ERA. "We will talk about it," Daniels said. "But we havent made any decisions at this point." Given a chance to start, Scheppers was one of the best Texas pitchers in spring training. Filling in for Darvish, he became the first major league to make his first career start on opening day since Fernando Valenzuela in 1981. "I really dont think it has anything to do with me starting pitching," Scheppers said. "Its just Im doing something that I havent done in a long time." Anton Stralman Jersey . Paul, MN (SportsNetwork. Vincent Lecavalier Jersey . Adam Lind provided the power and rookie starter Marcus Stroman had the best start of his young career as the Blue Jays dumped the Yankees 8-3 at Rogers Centre. Stroman, making his fifth start for Toronto, allowed one earned run and three hits over a career-high eight innings. http://www.lightninghockeystore.us/Victor-Hedman-Jersey/ . Alen, 28, hit .315 with five home runs, 59 RBI and a career-high nine stolen bases for the Goldeyes last season. He is the longest serving catcher in Goldeyes history, having already spent five seasons with the organization.When it comes to LeBron James, all thats certain is this: One fan base is about to feel scorned, and other is about to feel absolute joy. Miami or Cleveland? The same choice he faced four years ago is the one facing the four-time NBA MVP now. He became a champion in Miami. He still calls Ohio home. Its obviously not an easy decision, and the ramifications of what hes about to say -- its still unclear when any announcement will be coming, but its more than likely sooner than later -- will have a massive impact on the Heat and the Cavaliers. For the Heat, keeping James is likely the only way they can stay a championship-contending team for a fifth straight season next year. If he stays, it would seem likely that Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh would re-sign with Miami as well, keeping the "Big 3" that has played in each of the last four NBA Finals intact for at least another season. For the Cavaliers, its a chance to welcome home the player who fans -- and the teams owner Dan Gilbert -- directed so much scorn toward when he left in 2010 after seven brilliant seasons. James left Las Vegas late Thursday, two people close to the situation told The Associated Press. One of those people said James and Wade were flying together to Miami, and that James would be continuing on from there for his long-planned trip to Brazil for the World Cup finals. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because none of the details were revealed publicly. Earlier Thursday, James again appeared at his skills academy for the nations top high school and college players, scrimmaging and then watching games in the afternoon with some friends, including Wade. Meanwhile, in Bath Township, Ohio, cars lined the streets near James 30,000-square-foot mansion in anticipation of an announcement. People posed for photographs and TV news crews did remote reports from the driveway of his off-season home. ------ As he makes his choice, heres some things he may be considering about returning to Cleveland: BUSINESS HEADQUARTERS: Northeast Ohio is where James and his close friends grew up. He has business interests in the Cleveland area. He and his LRMR agency recently signed popular college quarterback Johnny Manziel to a marketing deal. Manziel now plays for the Browns. YOUNG ROSTER: Although the Cavaliers havent made the playoffs since he left, they can offer James a young roster filled with potential and promise. Theyre led by All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving, who recently agreed to sign a five-year contract extension, and the Cavs also have two other No. 1 overall draft picks in Anthony Bennett and Andrew Wiggins. COACHING STAFF: Clevelands coaching situaation could be a concern. Alex Killorn Jersey. The Cavs are on their third coach since James left and the team recently hired David Blatt, an international icon but someone who has not coached in the U.S. before. The Cavs did hire well-respected assistant Tyronn Lue, who has a strong relationship with James. CAVS ASSETS: The Cavs have assets they could trade to bring another elite player to Cleveland and have had preliminary talks with Minnesota about a deal for forward Kevin Love. OWNER: The biggest obstacle in James possible return could be his relationship with Gilbert. In the hours after James left four years ago, Gilbert blistered James in a scathing letter to Cleveland fans. In an AP interview that same night, Gilbert said James quit during the playoffs. ------ And while James has strong ties to Ohio, he has also forged them in Miami. PROVEN WINNERS: Instead of potential, the Heat are proven champions. James has been to four straight NBA Finals with Miami, winning two championships. They have made good on the promise Heat President Pat Riley made to James four years ago: Come to Miami, be part of something special, and compete for titles every year. COACHING STAFF: There hasnt been turnover in Miamis coaching staff and front office since James joined the Heat. Hes played for just one coach, Erik Spoelstra, and Riley has championship pedigree. OWNER: Unlike the situation with Gilbert, theres no rancour with Heat owner Micky Arison. The Heat have preached a family approach to everything, even allowing members of James inner circle access to the locker room and other team areas -- no minor thing within the framework of the Heat culture. BIG 3: James came to Miami in large part to play with Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh, both of whom also are free agents. Its hard to envision Bosh staying if James leaves. Its easy to see both Wade and Bosh recommitting instantly, if James decides to stay in Miami. MIAMI INVESTMENTS: His wife has a juice bar in the Brickell neighbourhood of Miami and James is said to be investing in a chain of pizza restaurants coming soon to South Florida. He doesnt have Miami roots, but hes created ties to South Florida nonetheless. ------ Its easy to see why James is torn. Whether it was one of Gilberts planes coming to South Florida, or movers packing up James luxury cars from his Coconut Grove, Florida home, or reports that a cupcake shop in Ohio had heard from people that James had already decided to return to Cleveland, any nugget of information sets the rumour mill into overdrive. But his camp says he has all the information needed to make a decision. The ball is now in LeBron James hands.
