Rangers' Alex Claudio: Needed for long relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claudio pitched the final three innings, giving up five hits and striking out four, in Saturday's 7-2 loss to the Tigers.

Claudio and Matt Moore both were needed for long relief stints when Cole Hamels was bounced after just two-thirds of an inning. He entered the season as a candidate to close games for the Rangers, but Claudio doesn't have the kind of stuff a traditional closer possesses, so he's been relegated to middle relief.

Rangers' Alex Claudio: Has option left
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claudio has a 7.59 ERA with opponents hitting .400 against him through 10.2 innings over 13 games.

Claudio came out of nowhere last season to become the Rangers' closer, but the soft-tossing left-hander has fooled nobody in 2018. He has a minor-league option remaining and it could be used as Texas welcomes back Doug Fister (hip) from the disabled list Wednesday and Tony Barnette (shoulder) possibly Friday.

Rangers' Alex Claudio: No relief in Saturday's loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claudio (0-1) allowed four runs on four hits without getting an out in Saturday's 9-7 loss to the Mariners.

Claudio, who finished up 2017 as the Rangers' closer and was in the mix for the job until the final days of spring training, has allowed crooked numbers in three of his 12 outings and sports an 8.10 ERA. Opposing batters are raking against him, hitting .396 while making hard contact 42 percent of the time. When he puts men on base, they score 44 percent of the time -- well worse than the norm of 28-to-30 percent. For guys like Claudio, whose fastball velocity lives in the mid 80s -- location is paramount. An inch here or there, and a batter can put a barrel on a slow-moving ball.

Rangers' Alex Claudio: Picks up one-out save Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claudio recorded the final out of Saturday's 6-5 extra-inning win over the Astros to pick up his first save of the season.

Keone Kela worked a scoreless ninth inning to get the win, then Chris Martin came on to get the first two outs in the 10th before Claudio finished things off. The left-hander has stumbled out to a 5.87 ERA through his first eight appearances (7.2 innings) this season, but manager Jeff Banister still seems willing to trust him in high-leverage situations. Don't count Claudio out of the saves mix on days when Kela is unavailable.

Rangers' Alex Claudio: Succeeds in high-leverage spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Claudio threw 1.1 scoreless innings, striking out one, and picked up his first hold in Friday's 5-1 win over the Astros.

The Rangers' bullpen, much maligned in 2017, delivered in the game's highest-leverage moment. Houston loaded the bases in the sixth with one out, but right-hander Chris Martin followed by Claudio each fanned a batter to preserve the lead. Claudio finished last year as the Rangers' closer, but manager Jeff Banister wants to reserve the lefty for moments exactly like the one he succeeded in Friday. Claudio may get some save opportunities during the season, but most of his work will come between the sixth and eighth innings.
