    Sadzeck allowed a run, walked one and a hit a batter while serving as the opener for Thursday's game against the Cubs.

    Impact

    This was the first time we've seen manager Chris Woodward deploy an opener this spring. He said Sadzeck is a candidate to open games if the Rangers decide to employ the concept during the regular season, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports. Sadzeck has a 9.00 spring ERA, walking five over four innings.

    Sadzeck walked two in a scoreless inning Monday against the Rockies.

    Impact

    Sadzeck had retired all six batters faced in his first two spring outings but wasn't as clean Monday. The walks are an issue for Sadzeck, who ceded 11 free bases over 9.1 innings with the Rangers last September. In that sense, he's much like Ranger closer Jose Leclerc, who overcame control issues to become a dominant reliever.
