Scheppers said Friday he's had discomfort in his pitching elbow since the end of last season, when he led the team with 76 appearances in his second season in the bullpen.
Analysis: General manager Jon Daniels said an MRI showed no structural damage. Scheppers will take 10 days off, then start a throwing program. Scheppers was Texas' opening day starter because Yu Darvish had a neck strain, Scheppers is 0-1 with a 9.82 ERA.
