Fantasy Impact:

It was expected that Rodriguez would join the Blue Jays prior to Saturday afternoon's game. Now, it has been confirmed that he will draw the start in place of Bowden Francis. This will be Rodriguez's MLB debut following a couple of Triple-A outings to begin the season. Over 6 1/3 innings at that level, the 27-year-old righty has been lights out, allowing no runs on just one hit and three walks while racking up 10 strikeouts.
