What would be coming back to the Texas Rangers for Leclerc?

When looking at a potential return, based off the Doolittle/Madson and Iglesias deals, the Texas Rangers could get a hefty package back.

In the Doolittle deal, the A’s received Blake Treinen, Jesus Luzardo and Sheldon Neuse back from the Nats.

Treinen was in the big leagues, Neuse ranked 4th and Luzardo ranked 13th in the Washington system.

As for the Iglesias deal, the Reds received Noe Ramirez, a big league reliever, and Leo Rivas, the Angels’ 25th ranked prospect.

Keep in mind, Iglesias is a free agent after this season. Also, the A’s sent two prominent relievers to Washington.

If the Rangers dealt Leclerc today, I believe they could acquire a top 5 prospect or a big league ready player in return.

If they decided to package Leclerc with another player, maybe like Ronald Guzman or a prospect, they may be able to receive more of a Washington/Oakland package.
