The pitching matchup for Monday will feature Tanner Scheppers for Texas as he will oppose veteran right hander John Lackey for the Red Sox. The Texas Rangers have been hit hard with injuries to their pitching staff. Their ace Matt Harrison has been sidelined with back surgery and is expected to return to the lineup later in the money. Derrick Holland was another hit to Texas as the lefty hit the two month disable list with a knee injury as he tore cartilage which required surgery. With the Rangers organization to offensive happy based on their ball park the team has very little depth in regards to starting pitchers. Joe Saunders the left handed veteran starter has been listed as day to day with an ankle injury. With the pitchers getting sidelined it has forced the Rangers to utilize their depth and what we found is they have no depth. Right hander Tanner Scheppers was forced into a starter’s role and was lit up in his first start after spending the past two years in the Rangers bullpen. Scheppers was lit up for seven earned runs and eight hits last week in their loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. Veteran right hander John Lackey takes the hill for Boston. Lackey is coming off a great 2013 for Boston and held Baltimore to just two earned runs and three hits in six innings in a win in his opener on Wednesday.
