Tepesch was sent outright to Triple-A Omaha on Friday, Jeffrey Flanagan of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tepesch went unclaimed after being designated for assignment earlier in the month, so he'll stick with the Royals organization rather than test free agency at the end of the season. Tepesch posted a 3.94 ERA in 16 innings with the Storm Chasers this season, but it doesn't seem like he's primed to move up in the pecking order any time soon.

Tepesch was designated for assignment by the Royals on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

A waiver acquisition from the A's in July, Tepesch went on to post a 3.94 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 8:7 K:BB in 16 innings with the Royals' Triple-A Omaha affiliate. He has bounced between four organizations this year after undergoing thoracic outlet surgery in 2015.

Tepesch was claimed off waivers by the Royals on Monday, Joel Goldberg of Fox Sports Kansas City reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tepesch was DFA'd by the A's last week, and he'll now head to Triple-A Omaha as a member of the Kansas City organization. In 17 Triple-A starts on the year, he's 8-3 and holds a 3.96 ERA. In order to accommodate Tepesch on the 40-man roster, the Royals moved Kris Medlen to the 60-day DL.

Tepesch was designated for assignment by the A's on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

A waiver acquisition from the Dodgers a little more than two weeks ago, Tepesch struggled in three starts for Triple-A Nashville, allowing 10 earned runs on 18 hits while walking seven in 16.1 innings. He will be subjected to waivers once again and could appeal to a club looking for organizational starting pitching depth.

Tepesch has been claimed by the Athletics, Joe Stiglich of Comcast SportsNet California reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tepesch made just one start for the Dodgers and lasted four innings and allowed five runs on seven hits. Oakland is thin in the rotation however, with injuries to Rich Hill, Sean Manaea, Felix Doubront and Jarrod Parker leaving them scrambling for arms. Tepesch posted a 4.36 ERA in 126 innings for Texas in 2014 and the Athletics will hope he can eat some innings with similar performance in their rotation.

Tepesch was designated for assignment by the Dodgers on Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

The Dodgers were forced to turn to Tepesch for a spot start Friday and the results were about what one would expect, with Tepesch allowing five runs on seven hits in four innings. Tepesch has gone 9-18 with a 4.68 ERA and 1.37 WHIP in parts of three major league seasons, but he has fared well with the Dodgers' Triple-A affiliate this year and the team is probably hoping to keep him around as organizational depth.

Tepesch (0-1) gave up seven hits and five earned runs over four innings in Friday's 8-6 loss to the Pirates. He struck out three.

EDGE Analysis

Making his first major league appearance since September 26, 2014, Tepesch had a rough go of it overall, primarily in the second inning. He gave up consecutive run-scoring singles to Sean Rodriguez and John Jaso, before yielding an RBI double to Starling Marte. The 27-year-old, who missed all of last season with a nerve issue in his elbow, may well be sent back down to Triple-A in the next day or so.

Tepesch was called up by the Dodgers on Friday, prior to his start against the Pirates.

EDGE Analysis

During 83.2 innings of work, Tepesch has posted a 7-2 record with a 3.66 ERA between the Triple-A clubs of the Dodgers and Rangers this season. With the amount of injuries to the Dodgers' rotation, he will be called upon to start the game in Pittsburgh, which will be his first major league start since 2014. He has been pitching well in recent outings, only allowing eight earned runs and five walks over his past five starts in the minors.

Tepesch will be recalled to start Friday's game against the Pirates, FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Dodgers have just four healthy starters on their active roster, so with Friday looming and no starter on turn, Los Angeles will recall Tepesch. The 27-year-old Tepesch has been effective since joining the Dodgers' organization, notching a 2.00 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP over three starts at Triple-A Oklahoma City. It's unclear at this point whether this will be a spot start for Tepesch, however, given that the Dodgers have several established starters nearing returns.

Tepesch signed a minor league deal with the Dodgers on Monday, Eric Stephen of True Blue LA reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tepesch missed all of 2015 after having surgery to fix Thoracic Outlet Syndrome, and will now try to get back to the big leagues in the Dodgers organization. The 27-year-old had a 4.11 ERA in 11 starts at the Triple-A level this season before being granted a release from his minor league deal with the Rangers.
