Shawn Kelley activated off IL ahead of Wednesday doubleheader

Rangers reliever Shawn Kelley has been activated off the 10-day injured list before the first game of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cleveland Indians, according to reports.

Fantasy Impact

Kelley is returning on Wednesday but will not be the closer in Texas, as the Rangers announced on Tuesday that Jose Leclerc would be taking over as closer even after Kelley returned. That move has more to do with Leclerc's four-year extension this offseason and his recent success than anything else, as Kelley rejoins the Rangers with a 3.00 ERA and 32 strikeouts over 33 innings. He will work as the setup man in Texas for the time being, unless Leclerc is unavailable or struggles.

Shawn Kelley lands on the injured list

Shawn Kelley was placed on the 10-day injured list with right biceps muscle soreness Monday.

Fantasy Impact

Kelley suffered the injury while warming up during Sunday's game against the Astros, and while an MRI showed no serious injury. Rafael Montero was promoted in a corresponding move. The Rangers have yet to announce who will temporarily replace Kelley as the team's closer, but the sure bet would be Jose LeClerc.
