Rangers | Nick Tepesch shines in debut
Texas Rangers SP Nick Tepesch allowed only one run in 7 1/3 innings against the Tampa Bay Rays in his major league debut Tuesday, April 9, to become the first pitcher to give up four hits or less and a run or less in his major league debut in 7 1/3 innings on a date as early as April 9 since Wayne Simpson did so April 9, 1970. Tepesch walked three and struck out five in the contest.
Fantasy Tip: Don't run out in waves to pick up Tepesch just yet. He's an extreme ground-ball pitcher that relies on pitching to contact. If his command isn't spot on, he can become extremely hittable. Consider him only in AL-only leagues if you need the innings.
