Rangers' Jake Diekman: Picks up save Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diekman didn't allow a hit or run over 1.2 innings of a 4-2 win against the Angels on Sunday. He walked one and recorded the save.

This is the first save of the season for Diekman and fifth of his career. Apart from a two-hit, three-run hiccup in his last appearance against the visiting Mariners, Diekman has been solid in his other six outings since returning from the 60-day disabled list (no runs, no hits, eight strikeouts over 6.7 innings). Given his solid performance, look for the Rangers to continue to use the big southpaw in high-leverage situations for the remainder of the season.

Rangers' Jake Diekman: Registers second hold Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diekman tossed a scoreless seventh inning and struck out a batter in Saturday's 7-4 loss to the Angels in 10 innings.

Manager Jeff Banister has wasted no time working Diekman back into high-leverage duties out of the bullpen since the lefty was activated from the 60-day disabled list Friday after having been sidelined all season following three surgeries to address ulcerative colitis. Diekman has picked up holds in back-to-back contests with a pair of perfect innings, and could settle in as the primary setup man to closer Alex Claudio with Jose Leclerc and Ricardo Rodriguez having struggled in recent appearances.

Rangers' Jake Diekman: Officially activated
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diekman (abdomen) was activated from the 60-day disabled list Friday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

As expected, Diekman was reinstated with active MLB rosters expanding to 40 players Friday. The lefty showed no real ill effects while on his rehab assignment from the three separate surgeries he underwent earlier this year to repair and rebuild his colon, posting an 8:0 K:BB in 6.1 scoreless innings between Frisco and Round Rock. He should immediately step into a back-end role in the Texas bullpen.

Rangers' Jake Diekman: Scheduled to return from DL on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rangers manager Jeff Banister said that Diekman (abdomen) is expected to be activated from the 60-day disabled list Friday, Connor Mount of MLB.com reports.

Diekman passed the final hurdle in his recovery from three surgeries within the past year to repair and rebuild his colon by making appearances in back-to-back games Monday and Tuesday for Double-A Frisco, marking the fifth and six appearances in total of his rehab assignment. The lefty has looked utterly dominant in those outings, giving up just one run over 6.1 innings while striking out eight batters and walking none. Given the dearth of quality relief options for the Rangers, Diekman will have a decent chance at settling into a key setup role right away upon returning from the DL. He accrued a 3.40 ERA and 59:26 K:BB across 53 innings with the Rangers in 2016.

Rangers' Jake Diekman: Rolling through rehab assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Diekman (abdomen) has tossed 4.1 perfect innings thus far during his rehab assignment with Double-A Frisco and Triple-A Round Rock. He's struck out six batters during those contests.

It's been a long road to recovery from Diekman following three surgeries to address ulcerative colitis, but his dominance during the rehab assignment suggests he could be on the cusp of rejoining the big club. Once he's activated from the 60-day disabled list, Diekman could settle into an integral setup role for the Rangers, as the team is lacking in reliable or healthy options out of the bullpen beyond closer Alex Claudio.
