The 26-year-old Scheppers said he was examined by a team doctor after the incident. He said he had a headache at the time but didn’t sustain a concussion.
Scheppers, who stands 6-foot-4 and weighs 200 pounds, said police were called to the scene. The team informed Major League Baseball security.
“I was in the wrong place at the wrong time,” Schepper said.
The Rangers lost Friday’s game 11-8 in 11 innings when Ryan Raburn hit a three-run homer off Jason Frasor, who was beginning his third inning of work.
Scheppers is 5-1 with a 1.74 ERA in 46 appearances.
“I wish it wouldn’t have happened, obviously,” Rangers manager Ron Washington said. “Things like this just don’t happen in Cleveland. They happen everywhere.”
