Jose Leclerc steady in tight Rangers victory

Jose Leclerc delivered a solid performance, allowing just one hit and striking out two over two innings to secure a hold in the Rangers' narrow 1-0 win against the Tigers.

Fantasy Impact

This outing was a much-needed positive shift for Leclerc, who began the season as the team's close but has since been temporarily moved to low-leverage situations. David Robertson and Kirby Yates are candidates to earn the save opportunities for the foreseeable future. Fantasy managers should consider dropping Leclerc and looking for more reliable bullpen options on the waiver wire.

Jose Leclerc expected to open season as Rangers closer

Rangers manager Bruce Bochy indicated there's a strong possibility that Jose Leclerc would open the season as the Rangers closer.

Fantasy Impact

Leclerc finished the season last year on a high note as the closer, so it makes sense he would get the first shot this year. David Robertson could also see some save chances for Texas.

Jose Leclerc: 'No pecking order between Leclerc and rest of bullpen'

Rangers manager Bruce Bochy said "there is no pecking order" between Jose Leclerc and the rest of the bullpen.

Fantasy Impact

Leclerc led the Rangers bullpen in saves last postseason. He figures to compete with David Robertson for save chances this season.

Jose Leclerc (ankle) placed on IL

The Texas Rangers placed Jose Leclerc on the 15-day IL Saturday with a right ankle sprain.

Fantasy Impact

Leclerc was in the mix for save chances early in the season, but Will Smith has completely taken over that role recently. Nonetheless, Leclerc has still found himself working in key situations out of the Rangers bullpen. He is without a timetable to return. The Rangers recalled Yerry Rodríguez from Triple-A Round Rock as the corresponding move.

Jose Leclerc blows another save in loss to Reds on Monday

Jose Leclerc blew his second save of the season after falling apart in Monday's 7-6 loss to the Reds, in which he allowed an inherited runner to score and walked three batters and earned a strikeout.

Fantasy Impact

Leclerc was relieved with a man on, and Will Smith eventually allowed that runner to score the winning run. This is the second blown save in as many chances for Leclerc, and it remains to be seen what the hierarchy looks like right now. Leclerc may fall into a committee if Bruce Bochy feels like that is the best way to approach late-game situations. If you roster either Smith or Leclerc, monitor this situation closely.
