Nick Tepesch is expected to join the Twins on Monday in Texas.

The right-hander would be taking the place of Buddy Boshers who was sent down to Triple-A Rochester after Sunday's game. Tepesch would provide a fresh arm in the bullpen with the ability to go multiple innings.

Twins reassigned RHP Nick Tepesch to minor league camp.

Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune notes that this means Michael Tonkin and Justin Haley are both likely to make the Opening Day roster. Tepesch, a non-roster invitee, compiled a 4.41 ERA and 9/9 K/BB ratio over 16 1/3 innings this spring.

Twins signed RHP Nick Tepesch to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

After missing all of 2015 due to elbow issues and thoracic outlet syndrome, Tepesch made one appearance with the Dodgers last season and posted a 3.96 ERA and 62/28 K/BB ratio over 116 innings in Triple-A in between stops with the Rangers, Athletics, Royals, and Dodgers. The 28-year-old is another depth piece for Minnesota.

Royals designated RHP Nick Tepesch for assignment.

Tepesch was claimed off waivers from the A's in July but never did make it up to Kansas City. He holds a 4.68 ERA and 1.37 WHIP in 43 career major league appearances.

Royals claimed RHP Nick Tepesch off waivers from the Athletics; optioned him to Triple-A Omaha.

Tepesch is headed to his third organization in less than a month. The Royals moved Kris Medlen to the 60-day DL to make room for Tepesch on the 40-man roster. The 27-year-old has pitched to a 3.96 ERA in 17 minor league starts this year. His only major league appearance came with the Dodgers back in June.

Athletics designated RHP Nick Tepesch for assignment.

The move clears a 40-man roster spot for corner infield prospect Ryon Healy, who is joining the A's on Friday. Tepesch has a 4.68 career ERA in the majors.

Athletics claimed RHP Nick Tepesch off waivers from the Dodgers; optioned him to Triple-A Nashville.

Tepesch was designated for assignment by the Dodgers after struggling in his lone start with the club last Friday. The 27-year-old will function as starting depth in the minors.

Dodgers designated RHP Nick Tepesch for assignment.

Not surprising after Tepesch gave up five runs over four innings on Friday against the Pirates. The recently-acquired Chris Taylor will take his place on the active roster.

Nick Tepesch was tagged for five runs over four innings Friday against the Pirates.

Tepesch gave up four runs in the second inning before allowing a solo homer to Jung Ho Kang in the third. He was just called up from Triple-A Oklahoma City for the start and chances are he’ll head right back down to the minors from here.

Rangers purchased the contract of RHP Nick Tepesch from Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Tepesch will take the ball on Friday against the Pirates just a few weeks after catching on with the Dodgers on a minor league deal. He's not guaranteed more than the one start and is a poor bet for fantasy purposes.
Fri, Jun 24, 2016 03:34:00 PM

According to FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal, the Dodgers will call up Nick Tepesch to start Friday night against the Pirates.

Tepesch signed a minor league contract with the Dodgers on June 6 after getting released by the Rangers and has registered a cool 2.00 ERA, 1.11 WHIP, and 17/3 K/BB ratio over 18 innings (three starts) at Triple-A Oklahoma City. He's not a terrible streaming option against a fading Pirates club, but this probably won't be a long-term stay.

Dodgers signed RHP Nick Tepesch to a minor league contract.

Tepesch was granted his release by the Rangers over the weekend. The 27-year-old owns a 4.56 ERA with 5.4 K/9 and 2.9 BB/9 over 39 starts and three relief appearances in the majors. He'll serve as rotation depth at the Triple-A level.

Nick Tepesch struggled against the Brewers Thursday, allowing seven hits, five runs (four earned) and two walks over 2 1/3 innings.

Tepesch held it together for a couple innings but the wheels fell off in the third when he allowed five straight runners to reach base. The right-hander is understandably rusty after missing all of last season with shoulder and elbow issues. Time is not on Tepesch’s side as he only has a couple more chances to make his case for the starting rotation.
