Bruce Rondon tallies first save of the season

Bruce Rondon pitched a scoreless ninth inning on Sunday against the Cubs to preserve the White Sox' 5-3 victory and earn his first save. He allowed one hit and struck out two.

Fantasy Impact

The closer situation for the White Sox is about as muddied as it gets, but Rondon is now a part of the committee who could see further save opportunities in the future. He was once viewed as the Tigers' closer-in-waiting, so he could run with the job if he continues to get and convert further chances.

Bruce Rondon sent home for remainder of season

Tigers' reporter James Schmehl is reporting that manager Brad Ausmus has sent closer Bruce Rondon home for the rest of the season due to "effort level." Schmehl also reports that Rondon's locker is empty.

Fantasy Impact

Well, that explains Rondon's diminished velocity on Monday. Rondon is clearly droppable in all formats. Expect Alex Wilson or Neftali Feliz to close for the Tigers going forward.

Bruce Rondon pitches perfect ninth despite reduced velocity

Bruce Rondon managed to retire the side in order during the nightcap of the Tigers' doubleheader on Monday. Worryingly, however, his velocity was down in the low 90's after consistently touching 100 in each of his previous outings.

Fantasy Impact

Rondon declined to speak with the media after the game, and Ausmus said that his closer is "fine." Still, if you're running Rondon out there, keep a close eye on how he performs in his next game.

Tigers' manager hopes to see more from Bruce Rondon

Brad Ausmus said on Sunday that the Tigers' player with the most left to prove this season is closer Bruce Rondon. "We need to see outs - strikes and outs," said Ausmus. "That doesn't just apply to him. It applies to everybody. But he's got tremendous ability."

Fantasy Impact

Rondon appears to be locked in as the Tigers' closer for the rest of the year. He's a low-end option, as the Tigers' terrible starting pitching doesn't afford him with many save opportunities. Still, if you need closing help, he's got the full-time job.

Bruce Rondon pitches perfect ninth in Tigers' loss

Bruce Rondon struck out two in a perfect inning of relief on Sunday as the Tigers lost to the Rangers 4-2.

Fantasy Impact

The Tigers haven't had a save opportunity arise since they won on August 15, so Rondon was likely just put out there to keep him sharp. He has struggled recently, but this performance likely secures his tenuous hold on the closing job for now.
