Three wins, and now a save.

The Monkey is under the delusion we can predict this.

Texas Rangers – In another near-hit for the Vulture Save Watch, Ian Kennedy was given the day off Thursday. The entire hierarchy joined him in getting some rest, though, leading Josh Sborz to convert his first save. He’s probably third in line behind Kennedy at this point, but we’ll keep an eye on his usage.

Hierarchy remains: Kennedy | Rodriguez | King.

Grabbed Joely Rodriguez instead of Sborz. But sure could have used the 3 wins.

Of course you would!

3 wins is worth the minimum of FAAB I threw at him.  And it remains to be seen if Ian Kennedy lasts the season in the closer role.

If I were the Rangers, I'd deal Kennedy posthaste.

Traded to the Rangers in mid-February. Mentioned by the Monkey now.

Texas Rangers — Jonathan Hernandez will be shut down from pitching for at least four weeks with a UCL sprain. Joely Rodriguez is still behind in spring training because of a sprained ankle, and fellow lefty Brett Martin is dealing with a sore back. The Rangers need to protect Jose Leclerc at all costs right now.

Updated hierarchy: Leclerc | Rodriguez | Sborz.
