The Rangers signed Leclerc to be their closer but he just absolutely refused to hold down the job in 2019. Bouts of ineffectiveness were followed by dominant stretches in mop-up duty, which were again followed by failures in the ninth inning. Above everything else, Leclerc has to again get his walks below four per nine innings as he did in 2018. Absent that, even though he'll begin the year as the Rangers' closer, he'll unlikely end it that way.

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.

2020 Fantasy Baseball Closer Report: Early July photo
