Fresno State’s Scheppers Out For Rest Of ’08 Season, Draft Stock Takes Hit

Tanner ScheppersBaseball America via Jonathan Mayo of MLBlogs.com is reporting that Fresno State ace and potential Top 10 MLB draft pick Tanner Scheppers is out for at least the next six weeks with a stress fracture in his pitching shoulder. Mayo speculates that the Scheppers camp may not be completely forthcoming regarding the injury and that the stress fracture story may be a cover for another, perhaps more serious injury.

Regardless this is a huge blow for both Scheppers and Fresno State who has high hopes of winning the WAC’s conference tournament and the automatic bid into the NCAA regionals.
