Rangers' Connor Sadzeck: Picks up fifth hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sadzeck walked one and struck out two over a scoreless eighth inning to pick up the hold in Thursday's 2-0 win over the Mariners.

Sadzeck, who has five holds in September, has not allowed a run over 9.1 innings since he joined Texas as part of the September callups. He's emerged as a setup man for interim manager Don Wakamatsu, despite Sadzeck's propensity to put men on base. He's walked 10 and hit one batter to produce a 1.61 WHIP. The key has been bearing down with men on base. The right-hander has quickened his pace with runners on while maintaining the power that allows him to throw in the upper 90s, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports. "When we talk about development, if you got his times to the plate, they were under 1.1 seconds, and throwing 99 mph," Wakamatsu said. "It takes a long time for guys to understand that we can still stay compact, let the arm catch up and still throw hard with strikes. He's learning that."

Rangers' Connor Sadzeck: Tosses scoreless inning as opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sadzeck didn't factor into the decision in Friday's victory over the Mariners. He started the game and pitched one scoreless inning while allowing no hits and two walks with no strikeouts.

Sadzeck made his second start of the season for the Rangers in the "opener" role, and he was able to successfully work around two walks to pitch a scoreless first frame. He has yet to allow an earned run in the big leagues this season, but he has allowed seven walks in his first 7.1 innings pitched. He shouldn't garner much attention in fantasy leagues while he operates as an occasional opener.

Rangers' Connor Sadzeck: Slated to open Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sadzeck will serve as the opener for Friday's game against the Mariners.

Sadzeck hasn't allowed a run through eight appearances since joining the Rangers at the beginning of September, striking out five batters across 6.1 innings during that stretch. He figures to pitch one or two innings before giving way to long reliever Ariel Jurado.

Rangers' Connor Sadzeck: Picks up fourth hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Sadzeck worked around a walk to pitch a scoreless eighth inning and net his fourth hold in Saturday's 6-3 win over the Padres.

Sadzeck picked up his fourth hold in seven major-league appearances, allowing only one unearned run since his callup from Triple-A Round Rock. He had pitched the day before, serving as an opener Friday, and his fastball didn't lose any velocity. "He's a power right-handed arm that can go into that situation and record the outs late in the game," manager Jeff Banister told Katie Woo of MLB.com. "That's a pretty special twist to the game right there." It's a promising start for Sadzeck, but one thing jumping out is the walks: He has five in 5.1 innings.

Rangers' Connor Sadzeck: Brings heater to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rangers manager Jeff Banister is anxious to see how Sadzeck's fastball plays in the majors, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.

Sadzeck, who was an 11th-round draft pick out of Howard College in 2011, brings a fastball that can hit 100 mph. Banister is excited to see how the fastball, coming with angle from the 6-foot-7 right-hander, will play against major-league hitters. "There has been some intrigue on my part since I saw him for the first time in the (2015) Arizona Fall League," Banister said. "Wiped out three hitters and every pitch was 98 or above with angle. So, I know in the past whether it has been some injuries or the walks -- I know this year in spring training didn't go as well as he'd like -- but it's still a big arm. Power plays at this level and he's big and creates angles. Guys like that come in and throw strikes, they can be challenging for hitters." The 26-year-old is past being considered a prospect, but he transitioned from starter to reliever last summer and that big fastball/breaking-ball combo could play more effectively out of the bullpen.
