|Nick Tepesch spins seven quality innings in no-decision |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(8/17/14) Rangers pitcher Nick Tepesch spun seven quality innings in a no-decision Sunday against the Angels. The right-hander permitted two runs on six hits and four walks while striking out one. He left the game trailing but the offense came back and scored two runs in the ninth to win the game.
Over his last three starts covering 19 2/3 innings, Tepesch has allowed four earned runs. He owns a 4.15 ERA and a 1.32 WHIP over 86 2/3 innings of work. He will make his next start Saturday at home against Kansas City.

(8/13/14) Rangers pitcher Nick Tepesch tossed seven strong innings Tuesday against the Rays.
Tepesch allowed two runs on four hits over seven innings of work. He struck out four and did not issue any walks. Tepesch pitched well to open the game, tossing five scoreless innings. He ran into trouble in the sixth. Tepesch gave up two triples and a sac fly during the inning, allowing two runs. After a visit to the mound, he was able to get out of the inning without allowing any more runs.
Tepesch left trailing 2-0, but the Rangers were able to battle back, giving him a no-decision. His next start will come against the Angels.
|Believe it: Nick Tepesch outuels Chris Sale in Windy City |
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
(8/6/14) The possibility of Rangers right-hander Nick Tepesch outpitching White Sox ace Chris Sale in Chicago on Wednesday appeared small. But it became a reality.
Tepesch managed his finest performance since a June 27 outing against Minnesota, which had been his last win. He gave up six hits in 5 2/3 shutout innings with one walk and two strikeouts. He had lost his last four decisions.
He is set to start again Tuesday against Tampa Bay.
|Nick Tepesch cleared to return to rotation |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(8/4/14) Rangers starting pitcher Nick Tepesch has been cleared to return to the rotation, according to MLB.com. He will make his first start back from knee soreness on Wednesday against the White Sox.
|Nick Tepesch throws bullpen session Sunday |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(8/3/14) Rangers starting pitcher Nick Tepesch (knee) threw a bullpen session Sunday, per MLB.com. The team now has to see how he recovers before deciding his status for Wednesday's start against the White Sox.
|Nick Tepesch was a surprise pick to round out the Rangers starting rotation last spring, having rarely been mentioned among the organization's top prospects before then. He wasn't so bad, particularly in the early going, recording a usable number of strikeouts while keeping his walks low, but he never did reclaim a rotation spot after going down with right elbow inflammation just before the All-Star break. With Derek Holland undergoing knee surgery in January, Tepesch is one of many candidates for the final rotation spot and clearly has endeared himself to the coaching staff. Fantasy owners won't get too excited about him, though. He has worked with pitching coach Mike Maddux to develop a changeup, so if he seems to have turned over a new leaf this spring, maybe you throw an extra dollar his way in an AL-only league. Understand he's a long shot for the job, though.
