Never heard of him I google his name and came out empty.  




Tepera was an effective reliever for the Jays and then the Cubs for the last several years. He's a good addition to any contender, and the White Sox picked him up.




Misspelling was not helpeul in a google search.  In any event, I don't recall Yankees actively pursuing him.

Not to worry, lauren. You'd have to follow all 30 MLB teams to be aware of a player who was the #2 or #3 reliever on the Cubs. There really isn't much evidence the Yanks were pursuing Tepera, but if you ask Jon about it, he'll link you to an article or two written by a writer saying the Yanks should try to trade for Tepera (like this one: https://bolavip.com/en/mlb/mlb-rumors-trade-targets-for-new-york-yankees-20210726-0006.html or this one: https://franchisesports.co.uk/yankees-trade-news-targets-deadline-2021/ ) as evidence that they had serious interest in doing so. I'm sure the Yanks inquired into Tepera when he was with the Cubs as part of their "due diligence", but there's no real evidence or any major articles saying the Yanks were actually pursuing him.
