Notes 
 The Rangers moved on from Leclerc once last year, and it doesn't seem like they'll hesitate to do it again. Hello, Demarcus Evans.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
He's probably going to be traded, but he'll give you cheap saves until then.
Michael Waterloo - FantasyPros
 The Rangers signed Leclerc to be their closer but he just absolutely refused to hold down the job in 2019. Bouts of ineffectiveness were followed by dominant stretches in mop-up duty, which were again followed by failures in the ninth inning. Above everything else, Leclerc has to again get his walks below four per nine innings as he did in 2018. Absent that, even though he'll begin the year as the Rangers' closer, he'll unlikely end it that way.
Dan Harris - FantasyPros
Kela is an above-average major league reliever and he'll start the year as the Pittsburgh closer. But the Pirates should be awful and he's a free agent at the end of the year. Banking on more than 15-20 saves for the season would be overly optimistic.
