Rangers' Alex Claudio: Finishes out Thursday's win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claudio worked around two hits to deliver two scoreless innings in Thursday's 11-4 win over the Blue Jays. He struck out two batters during the 28-pitch outing.

Claudio has been a key setup man for the Rangers since early May, but manager Jeff Banister deployed him as more of a long reliever Thursday, as the righty entered the contest with his team already holding a five-run lead. Banister's decision was likely influenced by the fact that three of the team's other bullpen options -- Tanner Scheppers, Ernesto Frieri and Dario Alvarez -- had already seen ample usage in the first three games of the series, so don't expect Claudio's role to change dramatically in the subsequent contests to come. With a 2.21 ERA and 1.04 WHIP over 36.2 innings, Claudio has done little to cast doubt on his ability to handle high-leverage work.

Rangers' Alex Claudio: Covers three innings in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claudio conceded one run on three hits and one walk while striking out two batters over three innings in relief during Tuesday's 10-8 win over the Mets.

Claudio wasn't especially sharp in his 25th appearance of the season, but on a night in which the two pitching staffs combined to give up 18 earned runs, his performance was one of the better ones. Manager Jeff Banister has shown comfort with using the southpaw against hitters from both sides of the plate, though he's had far less success against righties, who have hit .275/.324/.449 against him on the season. Still, Claudio's tendency to keep the ball out of the air has helped him keep runs off the board, and that's good enough for him to maintain a prominent role in a porous Rangers bullpen.

Rangers' Alex Claudio: Tosses two scoreless innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claudio pitched two scoreless innings in relief during Wednesday's 7-5 loss to the Rays in 10 innings. He gave up no hits and two walks and struck out two batters.

With a fastball that sits in the mid 80s, Claudio will never be the sort of power arm teams covet at the back end, but he's nonetheless emerged as one of the more reliable arms in a beleaguered Texas bullpen. Jeremy Jeffress and former closer Sam Dyson have been dreadful in setup roles this season, which has allowed Claudio to move up in the pecking order and take on more high-leverage innings. Since May 10, Claudio has picked up four holds over 10 appearances.

Rangers' Alex Claudio: Records third hold of season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claudio surrendered one hit over 1.1 scoreless innings to pick up a hold in Sunday's 5-2 win over the Tigers.

Claudio opened the season as the Rangers' primary long-relief option, but the recent additions of Anthony Bass and Austin Bibens-Dirkx to the bullpen have allowed the lefty to see more work in the middle innings. The 25-year-old has been able to secure three holds in his last five appearances, lowering his season ERA to 2.18 in the process. Unless he endures a prolonged rough patch, Claudio seems poised to stick around as a valuable cog in the bridge to closer Matt Bush.

Rangers' Alex Claudio: Records first MLB save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claudio was credited with his first MLB save after tossing a scoreless frame in Friday's 3-1 win over the Mariners in 13 innings.

Since closer Matt Bush was called upon to pitch the 12th inning, manager Jeff Banister was forced to go in another direction to close out the game after Rougned Odor gave the Rangers the lead with a two-run homer in the top of the 13th. Banister ended up settling on Claudio, who was making his first appearance since making a spot start in place of the injured Cole Hamels (oblique) on Wednesday. The Rangers have since ruled Hamels out for the next eight weeks, but Claudio is expected to stick in his usual long-relief role rather than warranting any consideration for a rotation spot.
