Texas Rangers Reliever Attacked And “Sucker-Punched” In Cleveland

Rangers relief pitcher Tanner Scheppers was attacked Thursday night while getting food on a street in Cleveland.

According to Scheppers, "several young males" jumped and "sucker-punched" him. Scheppers received a black eye and other minor injuries, and he did not make an appearance in Friday's game against the Indians. The pitcher is also suffering from a headache.

Scheppers filed a report with police, but it's doubtful that anyone will be caught. Police also told Scheppers that this "happens a lot." What the hell, Cleveland?
