Rangers | Nick Tepesch appears

Mon, 03 Mar 2014 19:23:38 -0800

Texas Rangers SP Nick Tepesch (back) allowed two hits over three innings in his Cactus League appearance Monday, March 3, against the Cleveland Indians. "Overall, I was pretty happy with my command. It's not where it needs to be completely, but I was down in the zone and commanded four pitches for strikes," Tepesch said.

Fantasy Tip: Tepesch was scratched from his last outing due to a back issue. He is in the mix for a rotation spot, and would be a solid AL-only and deeper mixed fantasy option if he can work his way back into the starting five.

Rangers | Nick Tepesch working on changeup

Thu, 23 Jan 2014 14:21:01 -0800

Texas Rangers SP Nick Tepesch continues to work on his changeup in hopes that it will set him apart and give him a leg up on winning a starting rotation spot. "It's something I've been focusing on this winter in my throwing program and I feel like I've made some strides with it. I think it's an important pitch for just about everybody. It's something I feel like could help me turn a corner by developing that," he said. Tepesch went 4-6 with a 4.84 ERA in 19 outings (17 starts) in 2013.

Rangers | Derek Holland had freak accident

Fri, 10 Jan 2014 15:58:57 -0800

Texas Rangers SP Derek Holland (knee) suffered a "freak accident" at his home that led to cartilage damage in his left knee, and he'll undergo arthroscopic surgery on it Friday, Jan. 10. He'll be out until midseason. "I'm devastated by this injury," Holland said. "It was a freak accident at home that resulted in a hard fall on my knee. As upsetting as this is, my goal is to begin rehab and get back on the mound as quickly as possible." General manager Jon Daniels said Holland fell on the stairs at his home. Holland has no long-term damage to his anterior or medial collateral ligaments. SPs Robbie Ross and Nick Tepesch are candidates to enter the rotation in the first half of the year.

Rangers | Alexi Ogando could re-enter rotation

Mon, 09 Sep 2013 16:50:41 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Alexi Ogando could return to the rotation and start next week. Ogando worked 1 1/3 scoreless innings and got the win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Sunday, Sept. 8. Ogando is 5-4 with a 3.47 ERA this season and has been on the disabled list three times. SPs Nick Tepesch and Travis Blackley are also candidates to start next week.

Fantasy Tip: Ogando's possible start next week is likely to be just a spot start, though, so his value won't increase much for the rest of the season.
