The Texas Rangers have exercised their 2023 team option on pitcher Jose Leclerc, it was announced today.

The Rangers announced yesterday that they had declined the 2023 contract option they had on outfielder Kole Calhoun. That was expected, though the fact that no announcement had been made on Leclerc was noteworthy to me, which I discussed in the link above. Right after I hit publish on that post, general manager Chris Young said that the team was leaning towards picking up Leclerc’s option, which, well, they have now done.
