Blue Jays turn to Tepesch to try to tip scales vs. Cubs

CHICAGO -- Nick Tepesch doesn't have much of a major league track record this season with just three appearances with two teams since May.

But the right-hander could make a case for sticking around with the Toronto Blue Jays with a solid performance in Saturday's interleague game against the Chicago Cubs at Wrigley Field.

Tepesch (1-2, 5.25 ERA) was traded to Toronto from the Minnesota Twins in late July for cash considerations. He had been sidelined since late May with a right elbow injury.
