Nick Tepesch has elected free agency.

Tepesch registered a 5.17 ERA, 1.98 WHIP and 9/9 K/BB ratio in 15 2/3 innings between the Twins and Blue Jays in 2017. He remains a very unappealing fantasy option and shouldn't wind up with anything more than a minor league contract with a spring training invitation.

Blue Jays sent RHP Nick Tepesch outright to Triple-A Buffalo.

He predictably cleared waivers after being designated for assignment. Tepesch posted a 5.17 ERA over four starts this season for the Jays and Twins.

Blue Jays designated RHP Nick Tepesch for assignment.

The Jays know that the wild card isn't very realistic at this point, so it makes sense to try the youngsters over the journeymen. Tepesch made three starts for the team last month, going 1-1 with a 5.14 ERA.

Blue Jays activated RHP Nick Tepesch from the paternity leave list; optioned him to Triple-A Buffalo.

The Jays will go with Joe Biagini instead on Sunday against the Twins. Tepesch holds a 5.17 ERA over four starts in the majors this season.

Blue Jays placed RHP Nick Tepesch on the paternity leave list.

Tepesch can be away from the club for 24 to 72 hours. Tim Mayza has been called up to take his place on the active roster.

Nick Tepesch struggled in a no-decision against the Cubs on Saturday, allowing two runs on five hits over his 3 2/3 innings of work.

Tepesch also issued three free passes while striking out three on the afternoon. Ian Happ was responsible for all of the damage against him, lining an RBI single into right field in the first inning and adding on a solo shot in the fourth. He'll carry an underwhelming 5.17 ERA and 1.98 WHIP into Friday's matchup against the Twins. He should continue to be avoided for fantasy purposes.

Nick Tepesch worked six innings of one-run ball Monday in a win over the Rays.

It was his first major league victory since 2014. Tepesch walked three batters and didn't strike out anybody, but he held the Rays to four hits and may have bought himself another turn in the Jays' rotation. We wouldn't expect any repeat performances, however.

Nick Tepesch was knocked around for five runs in 4 1/3 innings and was charged with a loss to the Yankees on Wednesday.

He surrendered eight hits and three of them left the yard in a hurry. Gary Sanchez, Todd Frazier and Didi Gregorius all took him deep for solo taters. Frazier touched him up gain with a double that plated two runs in the fifth inning. Tepesch was acquired from the Twins for cash considerations just before the trade deadline. Today was his first start as a Blue Jay. He had a lowly 5.88 ERA in 49 minor league innings this year before his call-up.

Blue Jays purchased the contract of RHP Nick Tepesch from Triple-A Buffalo.

Tepesch will start Wednesday against the Yankees. He holds a 4.69 ERA at the major league level and can be ignored in fantasy leagues.

Nick Tepesch will be called up from Triple-A Buffalo to start Wednesday against the Yankees.

Tepesch, acquired from the Twins last month for cash considerations, holds a 4.69 ERA, 1.39 WHIP, and 137/73 K/BB ratio in 224 2/3 career innings at the major league level. The 28-year-old right-hander is not a recommended fantasy streaming option versus the Bronx Bombers.

Blue Jays acquired RHP Nick Tepesch from the Twins for cash considerations.

The 28-year-old has spent the majority of the season in the minor leagues where he has posted a 6.81 ERA, 1.60 WHIP and 33/12 K/BB ratio over 37 innings. This is nothing more than a minor league depth move for the Jays.
Sun, Jul 23, 2017 07:15:00 PM

Twins re-signed RHP Nick Tepesch to a minor league contract.

The 28-year-old right-hander was released by Minnesota last week to open a roster spot for Chris Heston. He is currently on the disabled list with Triple-A Rochester due to a hamstring strain.
Tue, Jun 13, 2017 05:32:00 PM

Twins released RHP Nick Tepesch.

The Twins just claimed Chris Heston off waivers from the Dodgers, with Tepesch's release serving as the corresponding move. The 28-year-old right-hander has appeared in just two major league games over the last two seasons. He will try to latch on elsewhere as a free agent.
Wed, Jun 7, 2017 06:22:00 PM

Twins optioned RHP Nick Tepesch to Triple-A Rochester.

The 28-year-old made just one start for the Twins, allowing seven runs in 1 2/3 innings. No word yet from the Twins on a corresponding move, though fans of the club continue to clamor for Jose Berrios to join the rotation.
