News: Scheppers (elbow) said he felt good during a 30-pitch bullpen session Tuesday, mlb.com's T.R. Sullivan reports.
Impact: Scheppers was throwing bullpen sessions back in October, so there's no reason that he shouldn't be feeling good. After Neftali Feliz struggled to miss bats last year, Scheppers might eventually find himself with a shot to close games, though Feliz is the obvious favorite to open the season in that role.
