Nick Tepesch bounced after two innings against Nationals


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2014) Rangers right-hander Nick Tepesch earned a dubious distinction Saturday with a terrible performance in Washington. He managed the shortest outing by a Texas starter this season by lasting just two innings.

Tepesch was mauled for four earned runs on seven hits, including home runs by Anthony Rendon and Jose Lobaton. He walked two and fanned one before his merciful removal.

The pounding came out of left field for Tepesch, who had pitched well in his first three starts of the season, giving up six earned runs in 18 1/3 innings to forge a 2-0 record. His ERA skied to 4.43 on Saturday.

Tepesch will seek to bounce back Friday against Cleveland.


Not time to be tepid about Nick Tepesch


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) It's time to start buying into Rangers starting pitcher Nick Tepesch. It appears he's much improved after going 4-6 with a 4.84 ERA and 1.37 WHIP as a rookie in 2013.

Tepesch began the year in the minors after pitching poorly this spring, but it seems the demotion was a blessing in disguise. It allowed Tepesch to fine tune his approach. He went 6-1 with a 1.58 ERA and 0.99 WHIP in seven starts for Triple-A Round Rock. He also struck out 41 batters and walked just nine in 45 2/3 innings.

After beating Minnesota Monday for his second win in three starts, Rangers pitching coach Mike Maddux talked about Tepesch pitching to "his strengths and weaknesses," per The Dallas Morning News. Basically Maddux said Tepesch was just inexperienced last season, and he makes a good point. He made the jump from Double-A to the majors, but he clearly needed more time in the minors and got it to start this season.

Tepesch is doing a better job of adjusting to hitters after seeing them once, as opposed to hitters doing a better job adjusting to him. Last season, batters hit .246 in their second plate appearance against the right-hander and .446 in their third appearance. This season, they are batting .192 the second time and .125 the third time.

It seems something has finally clicked for Tepesch, so there's no need to show hesitation if you are considering adding him to your Fantasy roster.


Nick Tepesch makes it two in a row


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/26/2014) Rangers pitcher Nick Tepesch won his second straight start Monday, holding the Twins to two runs over 6 2/3 innings of a 7-2 victory. Tepesch is 2-0 in three starts with a 2.95 ERA.

Tepesch struck out four, walked none and scattered seven hits Monday. This marks the first time in his career he's won consecutive starts.

Tepesch will try to keep it going Saturday against the Nationals.


Nick Tepesch emerges Wednesday with win over Mariners


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Rangers right-hander Nick Tepesch achieved his second straight strong start and his first victory of the season as well Wednesday afternoon.

Tepesch surrendered three earned runs on five hits in 6 1/3 innings to defeat Seattle. He walked two, struck out four and gave up a solo home run to Robinson Cano. The bullpen hung on to a one-run lead the rest of the way.

The right-hander will try to make it two in a row Monday in Minnesota.


Nick Tepesch strikes out eight vs. Astros Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2014) Rangers pitcher Nick Tepesch pitched admirably in his first start Wednesday, giving up just one earned run on two hits and three walks in 5 1/3 innings while striking out eight, but he didn't factor into the decision in his team's 5-4 loss to the Astros.

Tepesch gave up both of his hits in a scoreless first inning and pitched well thereafter, but the team chose to take him out after he issued a one-out walk in the sixth inning, ending his night at 104 pitches. With the team's injury issues in the rotation, he figures to stick around and potentially make his next start during a two-game series against the Mariners next week.
