Alex Claudio earns first save of the season

Alex Claudio allowed one run (unearned) while striking out one across one inning to earn the save in Saturday's 6-5 win over the Cubs.

Fantasy Impact

Claudio entered the game in the tenth inning and did not allow a hit or a walk to record his first save of the year. Brewers closer Josh Hader was unavailable after pitching one 1/3 innings on Friday. Claudio will most likely be used in middle relief situations, and is not expected to see save opportunities. The 28-year-old owns a 2.84 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 4:2 K:BB across six 1/3 innings this season.

Alex Claudio traded to the Brewers

The Texas Rangers have traded left handed reliever Alex Claudio to the Brewers for a competitive balance draft pick.

Fantasy Impact

Despite a tough year last year with a 4.48 ERA in 68 innings, Claudio has proved to be a really solid left handed arm out of the bullpen in previous years. He should be an important piece of the Brewers bullpen but not one you will need on your fantasy roster.

Alex Claudio placed on DL with an ankle sprain

Alex Claudio was placed on the 10-day disabled list Saturday with an ankle sprain. The move is retroactive to July 11, so Claudio will be eligible to return July 21.

Fantasy Impact

Claudio started out the year as the Ranger's closer but did not hold the job for long. On the season the veteran relief pitcher has a 4.32 ERA and 1.58 WHIP with 23 strikeouts over 41 2/3 innings.

Alex Claudio picks up a save in win over the Astros

Alex Claudio recorded the final out of Saturday's 6-5 extra-inning win over the Astros to pick up his first save of the season.

Fantasy Impact

This save was just a case of circumstances. Keone Kela who replaced Claudio as closer had pitched the ninth inning to get the win and the Rangers needed Claudio for one out in the tenth. Claudio will go back to a setup role and is not a candidate for saves.

Alex Claudio may not be the Rangers closer this season

Alex Claudio, who ended the 2017 season as Texas' closer, may not resume that role this season, TR Sullivan of reports. "He is so much more valuable than just waiting for a save opportunity," manager Jeff Banister said.

Fantasy Impact

Claudio is in the running still for the closer role but it sounds like the team might prefer him more in a setup role. If Claudio does not win the job expect Keone Kela or Jake Diekman would be the front-runners. Expect an announcement to be made before opening day.
