Buzz: Nick Tepesch scratched from start
|Nolan Ryan joins Galloway & Company for his weekly visit to discuss the latest Rangers news. |
The Rangers also intend to summon Ross Wolf from Round Rock to make Wednesday’s 1:05 p.m. start against Oakland in the finale of the series and the homestand.
A blister on the right middle finger of scheduled starter Nick Tepesch influenced the Rangers to skip his regular turn. The hope is that Tepesch will be able to start Sunday in Seattle.
Wolf, in six starts with Round Rock, is 1-1 with a 1.85 ERA.
When Wolf is officially added, he and Cotts become the third and fourth pitchers to be promoted from Round Rock in the last six days along with being RHP Cory Burns and RHP Josh Lindblom, Monday night’s starter.
Lindblom and catcher Robinson Chirinos were sent back to Round Rock on Tuesday.
The Rangers will need to make one more move before Wolf can be added to the 25-man roster.
