He allowed a pair of home runs and three doubles in five innings of work. This was his first 'rough' outing of the spring, but as we have seen in prior games, he has done very well. He is 2-0 thus far with a 2.50 ERA along with a 1.22 WHIP in 18 innings so far this spring. (Source: Michael Cunningham)

Fantasy Impact: This is classic Wandy. He is inconsistent at times but is usually a good value at the back end of rotations in mid size and higher leagues. Wandy has nailed down the 4th rotation spot for the Braves this year and will have value.

He'll pitch behind Julio Teheran, Alex Wood, and Shelby Miller. Manager Fredi Gonzalez believes Wandy offers a veteran presence and has earned his spot. The fifth spot in the rotation is now between Eric Stultz, Mike Foltynewicz, and Cody Martin, with Manny Banuelos likely headed to the bullpen. (Source: David O'Brien)

Fantasy Impact: Wandy is best left for those in deeper leagues who need 10 or more starting pitchers. His best days are behind him but he will give you some innings.

Wandy Rodriguez continued his good work so far in 2015 with another scoreless outing. He threw 4 scoreless allowing only 2 hits and no runs. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: With Mike Minor's injury and the struggles of Foltynewicz, Wandy Rodriguez is assumed to be a lock to win a spot in the Braves rotation when the season gets underway. He has yet to allow a run so far in spring training and looks to have completely recovered from his season ending injury last year.

It's a big improvement over his first start against the Mets, when he was pulled after one inning, but had been scheduled to pitch two frames. And therein lies the problem with Rodriguez, he is inconsistent. Nonetheless, he could very well nab a rotation spot, especially with the shoulder problems that Mike Minor is having.

Fantasy Impact: Rodriguez is just not draft worthy, even if he nails a rotation spot.

The agreement comes with a spring training invite so Wandy will be competing for the fifth spot in the pitching rotation. He had an agreement with the Phillies but failed the physical. (Source: David O'Brien on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Rodriquez had a dismal 2014 with the Pirates, with a 6.75 ERA and 1.69 WHIP over 26 2/3 innings. He is not even close to being on the fantasy radar.

The Philadelphia Phillies reportedly signed Rodriguez to a minor league deal, pending a physical. Rodriguez was hampered due to injuries the past two seasons with the Pirates. He made just six starts in 2014 and appeared in only 12 games in 2013. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Although Rodriguez was just 0-2 with a 6.75 ERA this past season, he posted solid seasons from 2008 through 2013. He had 10 ore more wins in each season from 2009 through 2012, while averaging 169 strikeouts and an ERA well under 4. With the Phillies lacking in depth in the rotation, Rodriguez could make a push for a spot in the rotation. Should Rodriguez make the Phillies roster, he could be a solid extra starter in deep fantasy leagues.
