Rangers' Chris Martin: May be in mix for saves
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin could be a candidate to pick up saves after manager Chris Woodward confirmed Wednesday that the Rangers would deploy Jose Leclerc in lower-leverage spots for the time being, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

In addition to Martin, Shawn Kelley is also expected to have a role in the Rangers' upcoming save situations while Leclerc works through the command and control issues that have limited his effectiveness in the early portion of the season. Given that the Rangers signed Leclerc to a four-year extension in spring training, the team has incentive to eventually get him back into the closer's role, so any spike in fantasy value Kelley and Martin gain could be more of the short-term variety. Kelley has more prior closing experience at the MLB level and boasts better numbers (1.50 ERA, 11:3 K:BB in 12 innings) than Martin (3.97 ERA, 10:3 K:BB in 11.1 innings) this season, which may be enough to make Kelley the more attractive waiver-wire pickup of the two.

Rangers' Chris Martin: Dinged in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin (0-2) allowed one run on two hits over two-thirds of an inning in Wednesday's 6-5 loss to the Athletics.

Martin was the victim of a walk-off single by Chad Pinder and got tagged for his second loss of the season. The right-hander has been used during the late innings but has allowed three home runs in 8.1 innings and now carries a 5.40 ERA. He and Shawn Kelley (1.80 ERA) are the likely options should Rangers manager Chris Woodward decide to replace struggling closer Jose Leclerc.

Rangers' Chris Martin: Picks up fourth hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin allowed one hit over a scoreless two-thirds of an inning to pick up his fourth hold in Sunday's 11-10 win over Houston.

The Rangers nearly blew a nine-run lead and needed Martin to stanch the bleeding by getting the final two outs of the eighth inning. Martin's been the Rangers' primary eighth-inning setup reliever, and he's one name to keep in your back pocket while Texas closer Jose Leclerc battles control issues.

Rangers' Chris Martin: Sets up Leclerc
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin allowed a hit in a scoreless eighth inning to pick up a hold in Tuesday's 6-4 win over the Astros.

This was the second time Martin entered a game in the eighth inning with Texas holding a lead. It didn't work out well the first time when he allowed three hits and two runs in a slugfest win over the Cubs, but the right-handed reliever preserved the lead Tuesday and got the game into the capable hands of closer Jose Leclerc.

Rangers' Chris Martin: Bounces back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Martin retired all four batters faced, including three in row by strikeout, in Sunday's game against the Diamondbacks.

Martin had given up eight runs over his previous two Cactus League outings, so seeing him pitch effectively is a welcome sign. "That was good," manager Chris Woodward told T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com. "He has had a couple lack-of-results outings. He said he's felt great, but today it was good to get him out there and have some success. He was overpowering their guys. It was good for him to get out there and have those kind of results." The right-handed reliever is expected to get high-leverage work in 2019.
