      Rangers place pitcher Nick Tepesch on 15-day DL

      The Rangers have voided their spring option on pitcher Nick Tepesch and placed him on the 15-day disabled list, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. Tepesch was expected to miss a month at the beginning of April when he was experiencing elbow inflammation, a similar issue he dealt with in 2013 that caused him to miss six weeks. He will be a part of the major league roster once he's deemed healthy enough for action. Manager Jeff Banister thinks Tepesch may have rushed to quickly to get back on the field and he may be rushing now to get back with the club, according to the Dallas Morning News. "I still like the stuff," Banister said. "I think things snowballed a little on him. You'd like your guys to have a stress management routine for when the game speeds up, but it's going to happen to everybody. I still feel comfortable with Scheppers. The question: Do we back off a little? Maybe the next time we try to find something that is not such a high-stress situation."
