Richard Rodriguez records first save Thursday

by Connor Rooney | Pirates Correspondent | Thu, Apr 1st 7:18pm EDT

Richard Rodriguez secured his first save of the season during the Pirates' Opening Day win against the Cubs. He walked one and struck out two.

Fantasy Impact:

There was some hesitation that the closer's job was not Rodriguez's coming out of spring training, but he seems to be in a good position for saves after Thursday's showing. Rodriguez has good stuff and the potential for a high strikeout rate, but he may not see many save chances on the Pirates.
