October 3, 2022
Ragans was placed on the 15-day injured list with a left calf strain Monday.
ANALYSIS
Ragans made his final start of the year against the Angels on Saturday and allowed a run on four hits and a walk while striking out two in five innings to settle for a no-decision. Even though he wouldn't have pitched again in 2022, he's dealing with a calf issue that will force him to finish the year on the IL. It's not yet clear whether the injury will have any impact on his offseason program.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
A projectable 6-foot-4 lefty, Ragans only logged 7.2 innings after the Rangers selected him with the 30th overall pick in 2016, so he entered 2017 as a bit of a mystery. However, we soon learned that his low-90s fastball and low-80s changeup already grade out as plus offerings, so naturally he was able to dominate hitters in the Northwest League. He had the worst walk rate in the league (14 percent) and still finished second in K-BB% (20.8 percent) because he was using that fastball/changeup combo to strike hitters out at an ace-like clip (34.8 percent). It's obvious that his command/control needs a lot of work, but he has the size, handedness and feel for a changeup that cannot be taught. His curveball also needs some work. Ragans has No. 2 starter upside and plenty of time to work on improving his weaknesses. Entering his age-20 season, approaching 100 innings would be a big accomplishment, as he still needs to show he can go deeper into games and eventually handle a starter's workload.
