Jose Leclerc 2019 Outlook

Recommended Posts

Still no clarity on if he will take over the closer role, huh?

looking for someone who follows the Rangers closely or a Texas resident with more info?

Not sure if i should pick up Strop and drop Leclerc or not. I mean, ultimately, Strop could end up loosing that role soon if Morrow returns too..

If you are hard up for saves I would look to get Strop in your lineup regardless.  Given a save on his first day back.  Kelley was given the last save opp, and has pitched the 9th inning in his last two appearances as well (including a game where Leclerc was brought out in the 6th).  I am not a Rangers fan, nor a Texas resident, but it appears Kelley still has the gig at the moment.  Unless there is a flat out announcement, usage seems to back Kelley.

Kelley was also the only one warming up on the off chance the Rangers erased that 7 run, 9th inning deficit last night. They got 6 of them, but came up short.

Sorry meant to say 7th, not 6th.

Time to grab him again? How much leash do we expect Kelley to have before the Rangers put in their big money closer? Leclerc being used as an opener led me to believe he was far away from the closing gig but a blown save vs the Orioles has to move the needle.

Two clean innings with 2k's doesn't hurt either. Including tonight, last 4 appearances have yielded 4.2 innings with 0er 1h 1bb 7k.

If you believe that the Rangers want to move back to Leclerc, this is the first realistic opportunity...

This...era is still 4.5 despite how well he has been pitching lately. When Kelley blows a save it is one run, leclerc is usually 4-5 runs. Still own him though as I could be wrong

TEX has a double header on Saturday and have not announced who the starter is as far as I know. Fingers crossed!

Looking great is getting out of the random bloop Profar double. He didn't. Next.

Does this guy still get a chance at closing?

I would say yes. Still the best pitcher in that bull pen by far. Even though I’m also a Leclerc owner so I may be biased.

Woodward might say he is close to resuming the role again, but he's not as close as before. Kelley will need to choke and he often did when given the chance in Washington.

Also hoping for 1 more start before resuming the closer role. Would be very valuable.

Post tears of rage. 

 

He he looked fine last night for the most part.  Kudos to a hot hitting Semien  

 

Guy can’t get a break in the 9th tho. Needs a clean 9th and that will be big for his confidence and could build on that. 

 

We’ll see if he can capitalize on the next chance. Whenever that may be.

Is this that mound presence stuff? His ERA is 5 and Whip is 1.3

His pitching arsenal is better. Might not show up in the stats but he has the best pure stuff in that bull pen.
