Texas Rangers Pick Up Pitcher's Option

The Texas Rangers have picked up Jose Leclerc's $6 million option. As a result, he will remain a Ranger in 2023.

After missing the 2021 season, Leclerc was solid this campaign for the Rangers. Although he had a 0-3 record in 39 games, his 2.83 ERA shows that he was effective when called upon. As a result, picking up this option was a no-brainer for Texas, and he should continue to be one of their top relievers this upcoming season.

Leclerc has spent the entirety of his six-year MLB career with the Rangers, where he has a 6-13 record and a 3.12 ERA. Let's see how he can improve upon these statistics from here.
