Jake Diekman traded to the Athletics

Jake Diekman was traded from the Royals to the Athletics on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

Diekman was sought after by many teams in need of bullpen help. The return of the trade has not been announced, but Oakland must have stepped up with a solid offer to get the Royals to move him. He slots in as the clear top left-handed reliever in Oakland's bullpen. Diekman has a 4.75 ERA, 1.34 WHIP, and 63:23 K:BB in 41 2/3 innings.

Jake Diekman registers second save

Jake Diekman allowed a run on two hits with a strikeout over an inning of work, collecting his second save of the season in the process Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Diekman was called upon with Keone Kela resting. If Diekman would remain in Texas past the deadline, he could assume the closer role, should Kela be shipped out of town. He's posted an ERA and WHIP of 2.96 and 1.39 with 35 strikeouts in 27 1/3 innings this season.

Jake Diekman gets struck by ball on Tuesday

Jake Diekman suffered a bruise on his left elbow and on his back during Tuesday's game against the Indians, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Fantasy Impact

Diekman could have problems throwing with the bruise on his arm. No reports have come out and the reliever should be considered day to day. Diekman could find himself in the running for the closer's job if Keone Kela continues to falter and fantasy owners should keep an eye on Diekman.

Jake Diekman earns first save of the season

Bartolo Colon took a perfect game into the eight inning Sunday night versus the defending world champions. Jake Dikeman closed out that game with his first save of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Keone Kela has not lost his job, nor is he at risk of losing it. Rather, the Rangers used him in a 1-1 game the relied on Diekman in a spot save opportunity. He has virtually no fantasy appeal going forward.

Rangers tender contract to Jake Diekman

The Texas Rangers have tendered a contract to reliever Jake Diekman, along with six other players as they prepare for the Winter Meetings. The Rangers have one open slot on their 40-man roster with the release of Jared Hoying on Friday.

Fantasy Impact

Diekman was solid as a rock for the Rangers in 2016, recording a 4-2 record to go with four saves and an ERA of 3.40. The lefty allowed just 36 hits in 53 innings of work, and averaged 10 strikeouts per nine innings pitched.
