Updating a previous report, Texas Rangers SP Nick Tepesch (knee) will not work in the weekend series against the Cleveland Indians, so manager Ron Washington has shuffled his rotation. SP Jerome Williams will work Friday, Aug. 1, SP Miles Mikolas will go Saturday, Aug. 2, and SP Yu Darvish will work Sunday, Aug. 3. The team still does not feel Tepesch's injury warrants a stint on the 15-day disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Despite the fact Tepesch does not sound destined for the DL, fantasy owners will want to steer clear of him until he is able to return and make a full start without any setbacks or restrictions.

The Texas Rangers designated SP Joe Saunders for assignment Tuesday, July 1, and recalled P Miles Mikolas from Triple-A Round Rock in a corresponding move. Mikolas will start Wednesday, July 2, and SP Nick Tepesch has been pushed back for Friday, July 4.
Fantasy Tip: Mikolas will slide into Saunders' rotation spot. Only consider Mikolas in AL-only leagues if you're hurting for starting pitching.

Texas Rangers SP Yu Darvish will start Friday, June 6, on regular rest, with SP Nick Tepesch starting Saturday, June 7.
Fantasy Tip: Darvish's neck seemed fine in his 12-strikeout masterpiece Sunday, so you should expect his normal output moving forward barring any other injuries.

Texas Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said Wednesday, May 14, that despite long-term injuries to SPs Matt Harrison (back) and Martin Perez (elbow), the team is not looking to trade to fortify the rotation. For now, SPs Nick Martinez and Nick Tepesch will be added to the rotation.

The Texas Rangers placed SP Martin Perez (elbow) on the 15-day disabled list with left elbow inflammation Wednesday, May 14, and recalled SPs Scott Baker and Nick Tepesch from the minors in corresponding moves. Also, P Justin Germano was designated for assignment.
Fantasy Tip: Tepesch is taking the rotation spot left by Perez. Add him in AL-only leagues if you're in need of a warm body for innings. With Perez out for at least 15 days, Tanner Scheppers (elbow) is another candidate to take his rotation spot when he's healthy.
