  • Rangers Pick Up Jose Leclerc's 2024 Option

    Headshot for Jose Leclerc

    The Texas Rangers exercised right-handed reliever Jose Leclerc's $6.25 million option for the 2024 season. Although he had just four saves during the regular season, Leclerc was a vital late-inning bullpen piece that helped the Rangers win their first-ever World Series title this fall over the Arizona Diamondbacks in five games. In his seventh big-league season, he had a strong 2.68 ERA (3.62 FIP), 1.14 WHIP, 28 walks and 67 strikeouts in 57 innings in relief during the regular season. The 29-year-old allowed five earned runs on nine hits (three home runs) while walking six and striking out 14 in 13 2/3 relief innings in the postseason, securing four saves and a hold. Given his dominance in the late innings for Texas in recent seasons, he should be in line for more saves at the back end of their bullpen again in 2024.

  • Jose Leclerc Picks Up Save Sunday

    Headshot for Jose Leclerc

    Texas Rangers right-handed pitcher Jose Leclerc picked up his fourth save Sunday in a 9-8 win over the Seattle Mariners. Leclerc allowed a hit, but struck out two and didn't allow a run in his inning of work. The 29-year-old has been a big part of the Rangers bullpen late in the season, notching three saves and five holds since August 24. Although Aroldis Chapman appears to be the favorite for saves still, Leclerc could get some opportunities when the lineup they are facing is righty-heavy. He is a potential save source in deeper leagues for the final week of the season.

  • Jose Leclerc Slams Door For Third Save Tuesday

    Headshot for Jose Leclerc

    Texas Rangers relief pitcher Jose Leclerc picked up his third save of the season in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the Red Sox. Leclerc came in to pitch the top of the ninth up by two and delivered a 1-2-3 inning with a strikeout. Six different relievers have seen save opportunities for the Rangers in September and Leclerc has led the way with three. He has only converted one of them but has done so with a 3.38 ERA. Walks are still an issue for the 29-year-old, but he has pitched well overall with a 2.98 ERA and 10.17 K/9 rate this season. It looks like Leclerc may be the frontrunner for save opportunities to finish out the season for the Rangers, making him worth a roster spot in at least all roto leagues.
