News 
 Rangers manager Chris Woodward acknowledged that Jose Leclerc will get save chances, though he isn't officially naming a closer just yet.

Notes 
 Leclerc looked like he would be the Rangers' closer for years to come after he emerged from obscurity in 2018 to become a dominant reliever and then signed a lengthy deal. But his walk-rate reverted to its pre-2018 numbers quickly, Leclerc lost the closer's role, and then missed almost all of last year with a shoulder injury that required surgery. He's the favorite for saves now in Texas, though Chris Woodward specifically did not name him the closer at the outset of spring training. Draft him as one of the final reliever off the board, but understand that even if he wins the job at first, his leash will undoubtedly be short.
