Fernando Rodney picks up second save of the season

Fernando Rodney allowed one hit and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning to record the save Tuesday against the Astros.

Fantasy Impact

Owning Rodney is always scary for fantasy owners. But the veteran reliever has a strong hold on the closer's job with the Twins and is a must own in all saves leagues.

Fernando Rodney throws scoreless ninth in non-save situation

Fernando Rodney threw a scoreless ninth inning in a non-save situation in Wednesday's win over the Pirates. Rodney had two strikeouts, but gave up two hits.

Fantasy Impact

Rodney's set as the Twins closer, but may have a short leash as setup man Addison Reed is more than capable of closing out games.

Fernando Rodney gets the loss on Opening Day

While it wasn't a save situation, Rodney got the call in a tied extra-inning game. He retired two hitters, but allowed two hits including the walk-off homer to Adam Jones.

Fantasy Impact

Rodney is currently the Twins closer, but should his struggles continue, we may see a short leash with Trevor Hildenberger waiting in the wings behind him.

Fernando Rodney signs one-year deal with Twins

Fernando Rodney has signed a one-year, $4.5 million deal with the Minnesota Twins. He can earn up to $1.5 million in incentives.

Fantasy Impact

Rodney had a shockingly good season as the Diamondbacks' closer last year, though he had his usual blowups. Barring additional moves by the Twins, it seems likely that Rodney will open the season as the closer.

Fernando Rodney closes out NL Wild Card game

Fernando Rodney allowed one run on two hits while striking out two in the ninth inning of Wednesday night's Wild Card game.

Fantasy Impact

Rodney is never a sure thing for a clean ninth, and last night was a reminder of how shaky he can be. Luckily the Diamondbacks had given him a four run lead to work with.
