Tepesch allowed two runs on six hits and four walks while striking out one batter in seven innings of work in the Rangers' 3-2 win over the Angels on Sunday.

Despite only 52 of his 91 pitches called strikes, Tepesch stranded eight Angels baserunners in the outing. He's allowed four runs in three starts in August, allowing his ERA to fall to 4.15 on the season. It's a good sign for the 25-year-old, who posted a 6.15 ERA in July.

Tepesch tossed 5.2 scoreless inning in a winning effort Wednesday against the White Sox.

The improbable victor in a duel with Chris Sale, Tepesch pounded the strike zone (55 of his 79 pitches were strikes) and stayed ahead of hitters throughout Wednesday's start. As the Rangers' rotation currently lines up, Tepesch will have two turns next week including a Tuesday home start against the Rays before a second home start Sunday (August 17) against the Angels.

Tepesch (knee) will return to the Rangers' rotation to start Wednesday's game against the White Sox, MLB.com's T.R. Sullivan reports.

His last start was skipped because of soreness in his left knee, but after throwing two bullpen sessions over the past week, he says he is close to 100 percent healthy. In 12 starts this season, Tepesch has a 4.73 ERA, and is not a great option in most formats. He also has just 37 strikeouts in 67 innings, so there's very little upside here.

Nick Tepesch left his start Saturday against the Athletics with left knee soreness.

Tepesch pitched six innings before exiting, allowing three earned runs on four hits while striking out two. It's not clear whether the right-hander will be able to make his next scheduled start, and the Rangers probably won't know for sure until early next week.

Nick Tepesch was smacked around for five runs on nine hits and two walks over just 4 1/3 innings in Sunday's loss to the Blue Jays.

He also hit a batter, gave up a home run and didn't record a strikeout. Magically, Tepesch escaped with a no-decision in what turned out to be a 9-6 loss for the Rangers. The right-hander has now yielded 14 runs across his last three starts to push his ERA from 3.65 to 4.75. He'll try to bounce back next weekend against the A's, which seems like an unlikely proposition.

Nick Tepesch yielded three runs over six-plus innings in a loss to the Angels on Friday.

Tepesch allowed just a solo home run to Mike Trout over his first six innings of work, but he was pulled after he gave up three straight singles to begin the seventh inning. The final run scored after he was replaced by Neftali Feliz. It was a pretty good outing for the most part, as Tepesch allowed no walks while striking out a pair, but the Rangers just couldn't get anything going against Garrett Richards and the Angels' bullpen. He'll finish off the first half with a 4.31 ERA over 10 starts.
