Nicholas James "Nick" Tepesch (born October 12, 1988) is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Texas Rangers of Major League Baseball.

Professional career[edit]

Tepesch was drafted by the Boston Red Sox in the 28th round of the 2007 Major League Baseball Draft out of the Blue Springs High School in Blue Springs, Missouri but he did not sign and attended the University of Missouri, where he played college baseball for the Missouri Tigers baseball team. He was then drafted by the Texas Rangers in the 14th round of the 2010 Major League Baseball Draft.[1]

In 2012, while pitching for the Myrtle Beach Pelicans of the Class A-Advanced Carolina League, Tepesch and Jimmy Reyes combined to throw the first no-hitter in Pelicans history.[2][3]

Invited to Spring Training in 2013, Tepesch won the Rangers fifth starter job.[4][5] On April 9, Tepesch went 7.1 innings and gave up 4 hits, 3 walks, 1 run, and struck out 5 while getting the win in his major league debut against the Tampa Bay Rays.
