The right-hander will miss the entire 2021 season and is likely slated to miss the start of the 2022 campaign as well.

Rangers' Jose Leclerc: Lands on 60-day injured list
Leclerc (elbow) was placed on the 60-day injured list Tuesday.The move is an expected one, as Leclerc won't pitch again for over a year due to Tommy John surgery. With Jonathan Hernandez (elbow) also landing on the 60-day injured list, the ninth inning is open for Ian Kennedy or Matt Bush.
Rangers' Jose Leclerc: Out with elbow soreness
Leclerc is dealing with elbow soreness and is expected to miss an extended period, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.Leclerc was considered the likely (albeit not locked-in) closer in Texas after top competitor Jonathan Hernandez was diagnosed with a sprained UCL in early March, but he's now dealing with elbow troubles himself. It's not clear exactly when the Rangers expect him to return, but he's out of the mix for at least the early part of the season. With Brett Martin (back) and Joely Rodriguez (ankle) also set to open the year on the injured list, the battle for saves in Texas is now wide open, with non-roster invitees Ian Kennedy and Matt Bush potentially leading the pack due to their experience working in the role.
