Fernando Rodney solid in save number 16

Fernando Rodney pitched on back-to-back days against the Red Sox, this time earning his 16th save. He retired the bottom half of the Red Sox lineup in the 4-1 win.

Fantasy Impact

Rodney continues his recent streak of excellence, and his ERA is down to 2.84 while also keeping a solid K/9. The ageless wonder has the Twins' closer job for the foreseeable future, and should rack up plenty more saves playing in the AL Central.

Fernando Rodney pitches in non-save opportunity

Fernando Rodney notches 15th save Friday

Fernando Rodney notched the last out of Friday night's game against the Indians, earning his 15th save. Prior to coming in, the Twins had been up 6-1 before Taylor Rogers served up a two-run homer to Yan Gomes with two outs in the ninth. Rodney sent the Indians packing by striking out Brandon Guyer to end the game.

Fantasy Impact

Rodney continues to defy the odds and be a formidable closer in 2018. If he's still on the waiver wire, it would be wise to scoop him up, given that he will continue to collect saves against good teams now and then, as well as get saves consistently on the poor teams in the Twins' division.

Fernando Rodney collects 14th save

Fernando Rodney retired the side in order in Tuesday’s win over the Tigers, striking out two. He collected his 14th save in the 7-5 win.

Fantasy Impact

It was good to see Rodney rebound after a rough outing on Sunday. The 41-year old has a 3.13 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and just under a K per inning to go with the 14 saves.

Fernando Rodney has rough outing Sunday

Fernando Rodney pitched the ninth inning of a non-save chance Sunday against the Angels, as the Twins wanted to get him some work. However, as sometimes happens with closers, he was not able to have a clean inning. He gave up two runs on two hits and two walks, but eventually got the Twins the 7-5 win.

Fantasy Impact

The Twins bullpen has been inconsistent lately, so Rodney's job is fairly safe. Rodney now sports a 3.27 ERA and 1.32 WHIP through 22 innings. Most importantly, he has 13 saves, which ranks just outside the top ten in all of baseball.
