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.
