  • Rangers' Jose Leclerc: Picks up save

    Leclerc struck out one over a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save in Sunday's 5-3 win over the Mariners. Rangers closer Jonathan Hernandez was seemingly unavailable after throwing two straight days and three of the last four, opening the door for Leclerc to pick up his first save since 2020. He's pitched well since returning from the break, posting a 1.88 ERA over 10 games (14.1 IP), which earned him a promotion to high-leverage work and put him in line for a spot save opportunity.

  • Rangers' Jose Leclerc: Takes loss

    Leclerc (0-1) suffered the loss Thursday, allowing two runs on two hits and one walk while striking out one over 1.2 innings against the Orioles. Leclerc set down the first four batters faced, but he gave up a four-pitch walk with two outs in the eighth that set off a Baltimore rally. The base on balls has been his bugaboo over the years, and Leclerc has a 4.2 BB/9 rate since returning to the majors from Tommy John surgery in June. The right-hander has worked himself into a high-leverage, late-inning role and pitched well after a rough re-entry to the majors.

  • Rangers' Jose Leclerc: Throws back-to-back days

    Leclerc walked one and struck out three over a scoreless ninth inning in Monday's 4-3 loss to Seattle. This was the fifth consecutive appearance in the eighth inning or later for Leclerc, and the first time the right-hander has thrown back-to-back days since coming back from Tommy John surgery. Leclerc has fanned 16 and walked eight over 16.1 innings since his return, which largely mirrors his results pre-surgery.

  • Rangers' Jose Leclerc: Given ninth-inning work

    Leclerc allowed two runs on three hits and one walk while striking out one over two-thirds of an inning during Wednesday's 5-2 win over the Athletics. Leclerc, who was coming off a promising stretch during which he allowed zero runs over his last seven innings, was deployed to close out a 5-0 lead but ran into trouble. His first pitch was taken deep by Skye Bolt, then he gave up another solo blast to Ramon Laureano, before Garrett Richards rescued the Rangers. With Joe Barlow (blister) landing on the injured list, manager Chris Woodward may have been acclimating Leclerc, a former closer, to a late-inning role.

  • Rangers' Jose Leclerc: Works two scoreless innings in win

    Leclerc did not allow a hit or walk while striking out one over two scoreless innings in Monday's 10-8 win over Oakland. Leclerc threw multiple innings for the third time in his last four outings. After a rough patch following his reinstatement from the 60-day injured list in mid-June, the right-hander has settled in nicely, pitching seven scoreless innings during the month of July. The former closer has been used to pitching single innings to this point, but manager Chris Woodward may have found a new role for Leclerc.

  • Rangers' Jose Leclerc: Reinstated from 60-day IL

    Leclerc (elbow) was reinstated from the 60-day injured list Thursday. Leclerc missed most of the 2020 season due to a shoulder issue and was also sidelined for the entirety of 2021 after undergoing Tommy John surgery last March. However, the right-hander began a rehab assignment in late May and posted a 5.00 ERA, 11:5 K:BB and 1.56 WHIP in nine innings over nine appearances between the Rangers' Double-A and Triple-A affiliates. Leclerc earned double-digit saves in 2018 and 2019, but he may not be in the mix for closing duties right away since Joe Barlow has been effective in a ninth-inning role this year. However, it's possible Leclerc works his way back into a setup role now that he's fully healthy.

  • Rangers' Jose Leclerc: Moving rehab to Triple-A

    The Rangers transferred Leclerc's (elbow) rehab assignment Tuesday from Double-A Frisco to Triple-A Round Rock. Leclerc will shift his rehab to the highest level of the minors after he struck out three and gave up one run on four hits and no walks over 2.1 innings between his two relief appearances at Frisco. If he acquits himself well this week in any appearances he makes at Round Rock, Leclerc could be ready to return from the 60-day injured list when first eligible next Monday.

  • Rangers' Jose Leclerc: Makes second rehab appearance

    Leclerc (elbow) allowed two hits and struck one over 1.1 scoreless innings for Double-A Frisco on Saturday. Leclerc is taking his first steps back to the majors after undergoing Tommy John surgery in March of 2021. He's made two rehab appearances, giving up a run on four hits while striking out three over 2.1 innings. The earliest he's eligible to return is June 6, per Sara Wexler of MLB.com.

  • Rangers' Jose Leclerc: Begins rehab assignment Wednesday

    Leclerc (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment at Double-A Frisco on Wednesday. Leclerc has spent the start of the season continuing his rehab from Tommy John surgery that he underwent in March 2021. The Rangers are hopeful that the right-hander will be cleared to rejoin the major-league club by late June, and he'll likely require a fairly lengthy rehab assignment before he's in the mix to be activated from the injured list.

  • Rangers' Jose Leclerc: Nearing rehab assignment

    Leclerc (elbow) is expected to begin a minor-league rehab assignment next week and could be ready to return from the 60-day injured list by late June, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports. Leclerc is currently wrapping up his rehab from March 2021 Tommy John surgery at the Rangers' spring training complex in Arizona. He's been pitching in extended spring training games for nearly a week and tossed a scoreless inning in his most recent appearance Tuesday. Though he previously served as a closer for Texas during portions of the 2018 and 2019 seasons, Leclerc will likely have to settle for a setup role out of the bullpen whenever he's cleared to return from the 60-day injured list.

  • Rangers' Jose Leclerc: Moves to 60-day IL

    Texas placed Leclerc (elbow) on the 60-day injured list Thursday. Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reported March 28 that the Rangers weren't expecting Leclerc to make his season debut until late May, but his move to the 60-day IL now implies that the reliever won't be ready to go until at least early June. Once he completes his rehab program for his March 2021 Tommy John surgery and is activated from the IL, Leclerc will vie for a key role in the Texas bullpen.

  • Rangers' Jose Leclerc: On track for June return

    Leclerc (elbow) is trending towards a return in mid-to-late June, Chris Halicke of SI.com reports. Leclerc underwent Tommy John surgery in late March of last year. He remains on a fairly standard timeline and should have the chance to be available for just over half the season. Once he returns, it's possible he pushes for the closer job, given that preseason favorite Joe Barlow doesn't seem to be anything special. Jonathan Hernandez will also return from Tommy John surgery around that time and could also challenge for the role.

  • Rangers' Jose Leclerc: Throwing again

    Leclerc (elbow) completed a bullpen session Wednesday, Kennedi Landry of MLB.com reports. Fellow reliever Jonathan Hernandez (elbow) also got back on the mound Wednesday, as the two relievers are at similar spots in their respective recoveries from the Tommy John surgeries they underwent last spring. Leclerc and Hernandez entered 2021 as two of the Rangers' top candidates to close games, but neither will likely factor into the ninth-inning mix right away upon gaining clearance to make their season debuts at some point in the second half of the upcoming season. Joe Barlow hasn't been officially named Texas' closer heading into Opening Day, but he's the odds-on favorite for the gig after converting 11 of 12 save chances late last season.

  • Rangers' Jose Leclerc: Undergoes surgery Wednesday

    Leclerc (elbow) underwent Tommy John surgery Wednesday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports. Leclerc was placed on the 60-day injured list Tuesday, and he'll now begin his lengthy recovery process after his surgery was completed Wednesday. The right-hander will miss the entire 2021 season and is likely slated to miss the start of the 2022 campaign as well. With Jonathan Hernandez (elbow) also on the 60-day injured list, Ian Kennedy and Matt Bush should compete for save chances to begin the season.

  • Rangers' Jose Leclerc: Lands on 60-day injured list

    Leclerc (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list Tuesday. The move is an expected one, as Leclerc won't pitch again for more than a year due to Tommy John surgery. With Jonathan Hernandez (elbow) also landing on the 60-day injured list, the ninth inning is open for Ian Kennedy or Matt Bush.

  • Rangers' Jose Leclerc: Set for Tommy John surgery

    Leclerc (elbow) will undergo Tommy John surgery, Levi Weaver of The Athletic reports. It's the latest in a long string of bad news for Leclerc, who began his career as as very promising young reliever but has dealt with persistent injury problems in recent seasons. A typical recovery timeline will keep Leclerc sidelined until the middle of next season, at which point it will be anyone's guess how much of his previous potential still remains. In his absence, as well as the absence of several other top bullpen options, uninspiring veterans Ian Kennedy and Matt Bush look set to compete for whatever rare save opportunities the Rangers are able to manage.

  • Rangers' Jose Leclerc: Out with elbow soreness

    Leclerc is dealing with elbow soreness and is expected to miss an extended period, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports. Leclerc was considered the likely (albeit not locked-in) closer in Texas after top competitor Jonathan Hernandez was diagnosed with a sprained UCL in early March, but he's now dealing with elbow troubles himself. It's not clear exactly when the Rangers expect him to return, but he's out of the mix for at least the early part of the season. With Brett Martin (back) and Joely Rodriguez (ankle) also set to open the year on the injured list, the battle for saves in Texas is now wide open, with non-roster invitees Ian Kennedy and Matt Bush potentially leading the pack due to their experience working in the role.

  • Rangers' Jose Leclerc: Facing closer competition

    Texans manager Chris Woodward is not yet ready to name Leclerc the team's closer, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports. Leclerc, who gave up three hits in 1.1 innings Thursday, has experienced a drop in fastball velocity as he works his way back from a shoulder injury in 2020. Woodward mentioned Matt Bush and Ian Kennedy as possible closers if Leclerc is unable to lock in the job.

  • Rangers' Jose Leclerc: Closer competition thins

    Leclerc has a clearer path to reclaiming the closer role in Texas after Jonathan Hernandez was diagnosed with a sprained UCL on Tuesday, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports. Leclerc was delayed by visa issues to start camp but has since arrived, though he's yet to pitch in a spring-training game. Though he's saved 29 games in his career, he wasn't a lock to win the closer role, as the last two seasons have seen him struggle to a 4.33 ERA in 2019 and then make only two appearances in an injury-abbreviated 2020. The Rangers' bullpen isn't exactly loaded with proven options, however, and Hernandez was shaping up to be his top competition. It hasn't been officially confirmed that Leclerc will win the job, but his path is now a lot clearer with Hernandez shut down from throwing for four weeks.

  • Rangers' Jose Leclerc: Not yet named closer

    Leclerc (visa issues) has not yet been named Texas' closer, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports. Rangers manager Chris Woodward held off on naming a closer. "I'll let you know," Woodward said about Leclerc's 2021 role. "He's [closed] before. I think we have a few guys that we could potentially put down there. I don't think I'm going to name a closer right now." The manager also made comments about using multiple pitchers to close games, including Jonathan Hernandez, who had a breakout season in the bullpen.
