Fernando Rodney locks down 13th save

Fernando Rodney pitched a scoreless 10th inning on Friday against the Brewers to lock down his 13th save, giving up just one hit.

Fantasy Impact

Although Rodney's season numbers are unsightly (6.75 ERA, 1.50 WHIP), he now has nine straight scoreless appearances in May, and has tallied seven saves over that time. With the Diamondbacks playing well, it's possible that they will deal for a more established closer. But for now, Rodney has regained his status as a quasi-reliable reliever.

Fernando Rodney coverts flawless inning for 11th save

Fernando Rodney pitched a perfect 1-2-3 inning against the top of the White Sox lineup to pick up the save in the Diamondbacks' 5-4 victory on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

The save was Rodney's 11th of the season in 13 chances. As usual, Rodney seems to convert more saves than he blows to hold onto the closer role despite a 7.56 ERA on the season. He will continue to work the ninth inning for the Diamondbacks and is worth owning in leagues where every closer is rostered.

Fernando Rodney earns save number ten on Tuesday

Fernando Rodney protected a one-run lead with ease. He induced a pop out, line out, and strikeout to take home his tenth save.

Fantasy Impact

Rodney hasn't allowed a hit since April 29, hasn't allowed a run in May, is 4-for-4 in his last save opportunities, and is tied for third in saves. Rodney is in the midst of a great stretch, but his ERA is still 8.59. He won't be this consistent, but he will continue to see save chances and improve on that ERA and 1.70 WHIP.

Fernando Rodney locks down eighth save

Fernando Rodney earned his eighth save of the season on Friday night, retiring both batters he faced to secure the Diamondbacks' 6-3 win over the Rockies.

Fantasy Impact

Rodney entered a 6-2 game with the bases loaded, and allowed a run-scoring groundout before finishing off the game. Rodney's pitching numbers are horrid to look at, but he remains entrenched as the closer on a team that will win a lot of games, and is more than worth owning and starting each week.

Fernando Rodney remains the closer despite struggling

Fernando Rodney has converted six of his eight save chances but carries a 12.60 ERA and 2.30 WHIP. Nonetheless, Manager Toney Lovullo is backing Rodney as the closer.

Fantasy Impact

Rodney's season has not been pretty but he's gotten considerably unlucky. His BABIP against is .467 right now; his strand rate is 42.5%; and his HR/FB rate is 20%. All of these, and more, contribute to his 5.42 FIP and 4.48 xFIP. Rodney isn't the best closer out there, but he's better than this and should continue to see save chances as his stats regress to the mean.
