Rangers' Jake Diekman: Expects to be pitching by All-Star break
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diekman (abdomen) expects to be pitching by the All-Star break, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Diekman underwent colon surgery in January and is scheduled to have another operation in April. The 30-year-old reliever has been with Texas for the past two seasons, posting a 3.01 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP in 92 games. Diekman's absence opens the door for Alex Claudio to get more opportunities as the only returning left-handed reliever. He compiled a 2.79 ERA and 34 strikeouts in 51.2 innings for the Rangers last season.

Rangers' Jake Diekman: Successfully undergoes surgery Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diekman (abdomen) underwent surgery that was made necessary by ulcerative colitis on Wednesday, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Although Diekman is slated to return this coming season, he'll undergo a lengthy rehabilitation process, as his colon was removed during Wednesday's procedure. The tentative plan is for him to return around the halfway point of the 2017 campaign, but a more specific timeframe should become available as his rehab progresses.

Rangers' Jake Diekman: Will undergo stomach surgery, miss half of season
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Diekman (stomach) will undergo surgery to help alleviate ulcerative colitis Jan. 25 and will miss at least half of the season, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

This is unfortunate news for both Diekman and the Rangers, as the 29-year-old enjoyed a solid year in 2016, recording a 3.40 ERA while striking out 59 batters across 53 innings. He was also Texas' top southpaw setup man. The Rangers will likely turn to Alex Claudio to fill the left-handed void in the bullpen until Diekman is available to return.

Rangers' Jake Diekman: Avoids arbitration with Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Diekman and the Rangers avoided arbitration with a one-year, $2.55 million deal, Jon Heyman of Today's Knuckleball reports.

Diekman enjoyed a strong year in 2016, recording a 3.40 ERA and 59 strikeouts in 53 innings. He even managed to pick up four saves, which might have helped him double his salary. The 29-year-old is on track to be a free agent after the 2018 season.

Rangers' Jake Diekman: Picks up third save against Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diekman picked up his third save with a scoreless ninth Monday against the Rockies.

Sam Dyson had pitched and allowed runs in consecutive games, including a blown save on Sunday, so he was likely unavailable, leaving the save opportunity for Diekman. He has been fantastic of late, as Monday marked his 11th straight scoreless outing, a stretch in which he has allowed just two hits. Dyson has a 2.13 ERA and is 8-of-9 in save opportunities since July, so he should have some job security at this point, but Diekman would be a natural choice for the replacement should Dyson lose the job to injury or ineffectiveness.
