Rays' Kevin Jepsen: Gives up first earned run of latest Rays tenure
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jepsen made the third appearance of his latest Rays tenure in Wednesday's 11-3 victory over the Rockies, giving up an earned run on two hits over an inning while striking out two.

The veteran reliever, who amassed 22 holds and five saves over 41.2 innings with Tampa last season, gave up the first earned run of his 2016 stint with the team when he surrendered a rather meaningless RBI single to Daniel Descalso in the eighth. Otherwise, Jepsen looked sharp while throwing 12 of his 17 pitches for strikes and recording his first pair of whiffs since joining the Rays on July 14. The 31-year-old struggled with the Twins earlier in 2016, amassing a 6.16 ERA over 30.2 innings.

Rays' Kevin Jepsen: Signs with Rays on Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jensen re-signed with Tampa Bay on Thursday, Mike Berardino of Pioneer Press reports.

Jepsen was released by the Twins on Monday after posting an awful 6.16 ERA and 1.76 WHIP over 30.2 innings this season. He'll now head back to Tampa Bay, where he spent the majority of the 2015 season, to provide bullpen depth. Before 2016, the right hander posted two consecutive seasons with an ERA below 2.70 and WHIP below 1.15 and at only 31 years old, he should have something left in the tank.

Kevin Jepsen: Released Monday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jepsen was released by the Twins on Monday and is now a free agent, Dustin Morse of the Minnesota Twins reports.

The Twins finally cut ties with Jepsen who has been awful all season long, posting a 6.16 ERA and 1.76 WHIP with just 6.5 K/9 in 33 relief appearances. The 31-year-old will hit free agency and look to sign with a new team for the second half of the 2016 season.

Twins' Kevin Jepsen: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jepsen was designated for assignment Sunday, LaVelle Neal of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

It's quite the fall from grace for Jepsen, who had previously claimed the closer's role in April after Glen Perkins (shoulder) was shut down for the season. Jepsen proved volatile as the Twins' ninth-inning man, blowing four of his 11 chances before manager Paul Molitor elected to turn to a combination of Brandon Kintzler and Fernando Abad as his closing duo. With the 31-year-old sitting on a 6.16 ERA and 1.76 WHIP over 30.2 innings on the season and showing little signs of improvement, the Twins decided it was best to move on from the reliever, so look for them to try and facilitate a trade before exposing him to the waiver wire. If Jepsen ends up landing elsewhere, he'd likely be utilized in low-leverage situations initially.

Twins' Kevin Jepsen: Removed from closer role
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Jepsen has been removed as Minnesota's closer and the Twins will go with a closer-by-committee that includes Brandon Kintzler and Fernando Abad, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Kintzler threw a scoreless ninth inning in Wednesday's win to earn his first career save. Manager Paul Molitor did say he wanted to move Jepsen out of the role to get him back on track and appeared open to moving him back to the closer role at some point. However given Jepsen's struggles (6.17 ERA) and with Glen Perkins starting to make some progress in the return from a shoulder injury, it's possible Jepsen may stay in middle relief.
