Tepesch (elbow) signed a minor-league contract with the Twins on Tuesday.

EDGE Analysis

Tepesch was released by Minnesota earlier in the month, but he'll head back to the team on a restructured contract. He's still on the disabled list with Triple-A Rochester, so he'll spend some more time on the shelf before attempting a comeback to the big leagues.

Nick Tepesch (elbow) was released by the Twins on Wednesday, Phil Miller of the Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tepesch landed on the Triple-A disabled list in late May due to a right elbow impingement. He had only appeared in one game at the major-league level this season, giving up seven runs (one earned) off five hits and two walks in 1.2 innings against Boston. The right-hander could latch on as a fifth starter in the future, but will need to prove his worth at the minor league level first. His last start with Triple-A Indianapolis saw the 28-year-old allow nine earned runs in three innings of work.

Tepesch was placed on the 7-day disabled list at Triple-A Rochester on Sunday due to a right elbow impingement, Mike Berardino of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

The Twins haven't permanently settled on Kyle Gibson and Adalberto Mejia as their Nos. 4 and 5 starters while Phil Hughes (shoulder) remains out, but Tepesch likely won't be under consideration to replace either pitcher in the rotation anytime soon while he tends to the elbow issue. Yohan Pino was recalled from Double-A Chattanooga to take Tepesch's spot on the Rochester roster.

Tepesch was optioned to Triple-A Rochester on Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Tepesch is the roster casualty with Jose Berrios heading up to make his first major league start of the season on Saturday. After giving up seven runs in 1.2 innings last Saturday, it's should be no surprise that Tepesch has become the odd man out in Minnesota.

Tepesch will not Saturday's game against Cleveland with Jose Berrios set to be called up from Triple-A, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tepesch will likely move permanently to the bullpen as a result. However, it wouldn't be surprising to see him sent to Triple-A after he gave up seven runs over 1.2 innings in his one start Saturday after being called up to the majors.

Tepesch won't pitch Thursday's game against the White Sox, Mike Berardino of the Pioneer Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

With Wednesday's game being postponed, the Twins opted to have Phil Hughes start Thursday instead of Tepesch. The team has yet to name a starter for Saturday's contest against the Indians, but Tepesch is being viewed as an option for said outing.

Tepesch (0-1) allowed seven runs, one of which was earned, on five hits and two walks while striking out two over 1.2 innings to take the loss Saturday against the Red Sox.

EDGE Analysis

After being called up to join the Twins rotation for this contest, Tepesch offered the bullpen little relief by failing to make it through two innings. Although he may stick as the fifth starter, he won't be a consideration for fantasy lineups until he shows some sustained success. He'll make his next start Thursday against the White Sox.

Tepesch will join the Twins rotation as the fifth starter Saturday against the Red Sox, Phil Miller of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

The journeyman right-hander has spun a 2.00 ERA in three starts with Triple-A Rochester so far this season. Tepesch's role isn't confirmed to last beyond this Saturday effort, though manager Paul Molitor thinks it'll last more than one start. His debut is probably a good opportunity to stack Boston bats in DFS, though.

Nick Tepesch is the favorite to start May 6 against Boston when the Twins next need a fifth starter, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tepesch will surprisingly get the start rather than the Twins calling up top prospect Jose Berrios. It's not clear if Tepesch will remain in the rotation or if this will be just a spot start.

The Twins purchased Tepesch's contract from Triple-A Rochester on Monday, Brandon Warne of ZoneCoverage.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Tepesch had an out clause in his contract had the Twins not added him to the major-league roster by May 1, and since he had been pitching well in a starting role at Triple-A, the big club decided he was worthy of a shake at the big-league level. The Twins currently have a vacancy in their rotation, but it's expected that Tepesch will serve in long relief for the next week and a half before the organization determines whether he'll be an option when a fifth starter is next needed May 6 against the Red Sox.
