Rangers' Alex Claudio: Locks down ninth for 11th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claudio worked around one hit and struck out two batters to turn in a scoreless ninth inning and claim the save in the Rangers' 5-3 win over the Athletics on Friday.

The Rangers have netted Claudio only 12 save chances since he took over as the team's primary closer in early July, with the southpaw converting 10 of them. Though he's had a strong season with a 2.50 ERA and 1.04 WHIP over 82.2 innings, Claudio's lack of premium heat -- his fastball usually sits in the mid-to-upper 80s -- and dearth of strikeouts may not make the Rangers comfortable proceeding with him as their closer in 2018. It will be worthwhile to track the Rangers' offseason moves to address their bullpen in order to get a better read on where Claudio fits in entering spring training.

Rangers' Alex Claudio: Collects 10th save Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claudio gave up a hit and struck out one over two scoreless innings Wednesday to record his 10th save of the season in an 8-6 win over the Mariners.

After the Rangers exploded for seven runs in the fourth inning it didn't look like Claudio's services would be needed, but after Matt Bush failed to record an out to begin the eighth, manager Jeff Banister elected to take no chances and turned to his closer. The lefty likely won't be available Thursday, but expect him to see heavy use down stretch as the club tries to close the gap on the Twins for the final wild-card spot in the AL.

Rangers' Alex Claudio: Picks up ninth save Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claudio worked a perfect ninth inning Tuesday to notch his ninth save of the season in a 3-1 win over the Mariners.

After blowing a couple of saves earlier in September, Claudio has converted his last two opportunities and seems to have righted the ship. Expect the 25-year-old lefty to remain in the closer role down the stretch as the Rangers try to make a late push into the wild-card picture.

Rangers' Alex Claudio: Grabs save with scoreless ninth
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claudio notched his eighth save of the season in Monday's 5-3 win over the Mariners, tossing a scoreless ninth inning while striking out a batter.

It was Claudio's first save since Aug. 21, with the Rangers' stopper having blown two leads in between to take save chances off the table. Despite the recent hiccups, Claudio doesn't seem to have squandered much job security, though the recent returns of Jake Diekman (abdomen) and Matt Bush (knee) from the disabled list will give manager Jeff Banister some appealing alternatives if the left-hander should suffer a string of blowups late in games.

Rangers' Alex Claudio: Blows lead Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claudio (4-2) was the pitcher of record and was charged with a blown save after surrendering two runs on four hits in 1.1 innings in Saturday's 3-1 win over the Yankees.

With the Rangers clinging to a 1-0 lead in the top of the eighth inning, manager Jeff Banister called upon Claudio for a six-out save, as the skipper has often been willing to do in the second half due to the lefty's prior experience as a long reliever. While Claudio has often thrived in such scenarios this season, he ran into trouble right away Saturday, surrendering a base hit before allowing the lone baserunner he inherited to score the tying run on a sacrifice fly. Claudio stayed in the contest for the ninth inning, putting runners on first and third before getting pulled, ultimately taking the loss when Ricardo Rodriguez allowed both to score. With runs allowed in six of his last 12 appearances, Claudio is beginning to fade a bit as the season winds down, but since he's mostly avoided cataclysmic meltdowns during his run as closer, his job security still appears to be on solid ground.
