Today was the deadline for Heaney to submit a decision on the player option.  Sunday was the deadline for resolution of Leclerc’s club option.

Heaney went 10-6 with a 4.15 ERA (68 ER/147.1 IP) over 34 games/28 starts in his first season with Texas in 2023, posting a career high in wins (10) with his 2nd-most innings (147.1), starts (28) and strikeouts (151).  He was also 1-0 with a 4.09 ERA (5 ER/11.0 IP) over 5 games/3 starts for the Rangers in the club’s 2023 World Series championship run in the postseason.  His lone career playoff win came in World Series Game 4 at Arizona (5.0 IP, 1 R-ER), a victory which gave Texas a 3-games-to-1 lead in the Fall Classic.

Leclerc was 0-2 with 4 saves and a 2.68 ERA (17 ER/57.0 IP) over 57 relief outings for Texas in the 2023 regular season. He went 1-1 with 4 saves and a 3.29 ERA (5 ER/13.2 IP) over 13 relief appearances for the Rangers in the 2023 playoffs, as his 13 outings in the club’s World Series title run, tying the 3rd-highest total of games ever in a single postseason.
