Claudio isn't expected to be in the mix for saves to begin the season with manager Jeff Banister indicating that Keone Kela is the team's preferred ninth-inning option, with Kevin Jepsen next in line after Kela, Levi Weaver of The Athletic Dallas reports.

Claudio, who ended the 2017 season as Texas' closer, may not resume that role this season, TR Sullivan of MLB.com reports. "He is so much more valuable than just waiting for a save opportunity," manager Jeff Banister said. "Save opportunities don't show up every night. I'll go back, we pined over closing out games last year, and early on, it was not the ninth inning that was the issue. It was getting to the ninth. We've got to close innings out, period."

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Claudio split time between Triple-A Round Rock and the majors once again in 2016 after struggling with the big club early on. From April through June, he held an unimpressive 4.50 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, and 5.5 K/9. He managed to right the ship over the second half of the season, however, posting a 1.87 ERA and 1.13 WHIP. His peripherals also point toward future success, as his 62.7 percent groundball rate and 0.4 HR/9 bode extremely well for a pitcher in a hitter-friendly environment such as Texas' Globe Life Park. Claudio doesn't light up the radar gun by any stroke of the imagination, but his outstanding control (1.7 BB/9) and ability to get left-handed hitters out (.177 BAA versus lefties) should help him compete for a more consistent role in the Rangers' bullpen during his age-25 season.

2016

Claudio was shuttled back and forth between Triple-A Round Rock and the majors numerous times in 2015, pitching 15.2 innings with Texas and another 40 in the minors. Claudio's calling card during his ascent through the minors was his effectiveness against lefties, though he allowed a pair of homers to lefties in just 34 batters faced while with Texas. A shoulder strain put an early end to his season in September, but he's expected to be healthy for spring training, and he will be competing for a spot in the Texas bullpen as a lefty specialist.

2015

The Rangers moved Claudio through four levels in 2014, and he finished the season getting a look in the big league bullpen. He more than held his own, carrying a 2.92 ERA that could have been better if he were less susceptible to hard contact (.389 BABIP). Just 23, Claudio is likely to end up in the bullpen at Triple-A to begin the season, but the Rangers may have a very useful left-handed reliever at their disposal. Claudio has an unusual sidearm delivery from the left side, which has enabled him to dominate against lefties (36.8% K%, 4.4% BB%) during his ascent through the minors. He fanned 40.0% of the lefties he faced during his time with Texas, but his lack of overpowering stuff makes him very vulnerable to righties.
