Jose Leclerc (shoulder) placed on 45-day injured list

The Rangers placed Jose Leclerc on the 45-day injured list with a Grade 2 teres major strain in his right shoulder.

Fantasy Impact

This is the same injury that Leclerc's teammate Corey Kluber is dealing with. The Rangers say Leclerc's strain isn't as bad, however. The fantasy angle becomes about who will pick up saves in Texas with Leclerc sidelined for a while. Nick Goody got the first chance on Wednesday but it's unclear if the journeyman reliever will keep seeing chances. Jonathan Hernandez could factor into the mix too.

Jose LeClerc experiencing shoulder tightness

Jose LeClerc was warming up in the eighth inning against the Diamondbacks when he experienced shoulder tightness. The Rangers were cautious and sat him down, letting Nick Goody earn the save in his stead.

Fantasy Impact

LeClerc seems entrenched as the Rangers’ closer, so this is unfortunate news for fantasy players. Keep an eye out for updates on Thursday for further clarification.

Jose Leclerc to enter spring training as Rangers' closer

Rangers manager Chris Woodward says Jose Leclerc will enter spring training as the Rangers' closer.

Fantasy Impact

Leclerc struggled mightily at times throughout the 2019 season, eventually losing his closing job to Shawn Kelley. He wound up bouncing back towards the end of the year and will get another chance to hold down the job in 2020. Leclerc still showed elite swing-and-miss potential last year, striking out 100 batters in just 68 2/3 innings.

Jose Leclerc notches 14th save

Jose Leclerc retired the final batter of the game with a strikeout to earn the save in Thursday's 7-5 win over the Red Sox.

Fantasy Impact

Leclerc came into the game with two outs in the ninth inning and struck out the only batter he faced to earn his 14th save of the season. He hasn't blown a save since August 20th and has allowed four earned runs in his last 11 1/3 innings. Leclerc owns a 4.09 ERA and 1.32 WHIP with 96 strikeouts through 66 innings this season.
