ARLINGTON -- Nick Tepesch had his first bullpen session while on the disabled list before Friday's game. The Rangers right-hander said he felt good about the 25-pitch session, which featured fastballs and changeups.
He'll have his next bullpen session Monday, where he plans to "bump it up" past 25 pitches. Tepesch has been on the disabled list since July 7 with right elbow inflammation.
Rangers general manager Jon Daniels hopes to get Tepesch back around early September.
