Texas Rangers general manager Jon Daniels said the team is continuing to look for starting pitching even after the acquisition of SP Ross Detwiler. "We've got a number of internal options coming to compete for a spot, all of them that we like," Daniels said. "But you can never have enough and we'll continue having conversations about adding another starter." The Rangers already have SPs Yu Darvish, Derek Holland, Colby Lewis, Detwiler, Nick Martinez and Nick Tepesch on their roster and minor league SPs Alex Gonzalez and Luke Jackson could also compete for a job during spring training.

The Texas Rangers confirmed Monday, Aug. 4, that SP Nick Tepesch (knee) will return to the rotation Wednesday, Aug. 6, against the Chicago White Sox.

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.
