Fernando Rodney has visa issues and will be late to Spring Training
Fernando Rodney, who signed with the Diamondbacks this offseason, will be late to Spring Training because of visa issues. Rodney will be 40-year-old this season, but his 0.31 ERA and 17 saves in 28 games with the Padres last season shows that there is still something left in the tank. He finished the season with a 3.44 ERA in 67 games last season between the Padres and Marlins.
As good as Rodney was with the Padres, he was even worse with the Marlins, posting a 5.89 ERA and 1.80 WHIP in 36 2/3 innings. Rodney has been good in spurts through his career, as he has twice saved 48 games and struck out 10.2 batters per nine in 2016, but his control has been an issue over his whole career. If you can get Rodney in the last two rounds, pick him up, as the Diamondbacks are a sleeper this season and could give him the opportunity for 35 or more saves.
Fernando Rodney signs with the Arizona Diamondbacks
The Arizona Diamondbacks and RP Fernando Rodney have agreed to a one-year $2.75M deal.
The Dbacks were looking for a closer and they seem to have found one for cheap in Rodney. As Rodney will be the closer, he has added benefit in the fantasy world, though he would be on the lower echelon of closers going into the season. Rodney finished the 2016 season with a 5.89 ERA, 1.80 WHIP, and eight saves in 36.2 innings pitched.
Fernando Rodney continues to be awful
Miami Marlins reliever Fernando Rodney was awful again on Wednesday, recording three outs but not before allowing two runs on three hits and putting the game out of reach for the Fish.
Rodney was coming off two outings where he was unable to record a single out, so...progress? It certainly seems that Rodney used up all of his good innings this year with the Padres. His current 3.47 ERA seems astronomical after his start to the season.
Fernando Rodney can't record any outs
Miami Marlins reliever Fernando Rodney was awful again on Monday, allowing three runs on three hits and two walks without recording an out.
It was pretty much as bad as a relief outing can be. Rodney hasn't been very good as a Marlin and has been downright awful of late. He can't be trusted in the fantasy playoffs.
Fernando Rodney almost loses the game, may have lost his job
Miami Marlins closer Fernando Rodney allowed the first three batters of the ninth inning to reach base in a save situation. He was pulled from the game for A.J. Ramos before he was even able to record an out.
And with that, the frightening, cheek-clenching reign of Rodney as Marlins closer may have come to an end. Ramos inherited Rodney's mess but made quick work of the Dodgers and earned the save.
