Will Smith Being the Closer Makes the Best Sense for Texas Rangers

15m | May 5, 2023

In a surprising move, the Texas Rangers have announced that Will Smith will take over as their new closer, replacing Jose Leclerc, who has struggled to keep the role. The decision comes after Leclerc blew two consecutive save opportunities, leading to losses for the team.

Will Smith is a seasoned reliever with a track record of success in the major leagues. He has spent most of his career as a closer, and his experience in high-pressure situations makes him a natural fit for the role. Smith has a career ERA of 3.56 and has saved 95 games, including 37 saves in 2021 with the Atlanta Braves.
