Miami Marlins setup man Fernando Rodney pitched a perfect ninth inning in a tie game on Monday, striking out two.

Fantasy Impact: Rodney lowered his ERA a bit more, now down to 0.96. He's an elite setup man as a Marlin, which limits his value to holds leagues for now.

Miami Marlins setup man Fernando Rodney allowed another run on Tuesday, giving up a solo home run to Alejandro de Aza.

Fantasy Impact: Rodney was due for regression, but who would have guessed it would come in two of his first four Marlins appearances? No longer a closer, Rodney still has some fantasy value, but not nearly as much outside of holds leagues.

Miami Marlins setup man Fernando Rodney allowed his second and third earned runs of the season on Monday, pitching one inning, and allowing the two runs on two hits and a walk with one strikeout.

Fantasy Impact: Rodney's ERA skyrocketed to 0.85. It was a tough day over all for the Marlins bullpen, as the team was up 6-0 at one point, but allowed eight unanswered runs to the Mets.

Miami Marlins setup man Fernando Rodney lowered his ERA to 0.29 with a perfect inning on Sunday night.

Fantasy Impact: He just keeps doing it. He's only allowed one earned run this season and is now part of a suddenly excellent Marlins bullpen.

Miami Marlins new setup man Fernando Rodney had a smooth Marlins debut, pitching a scoreless eighth inning with one walk and two strikeouts.

Fantasy Impact: Rodney's arrows will have to be put away for now, as he'll serve as the primary setup man for the Marlins. Owners in save/hold leagues will be fine, but it's a big hit to his value in standard leagues.

Miami Marlins newly acquired relief pitcher Fernando Rodney will pitch in the eighth inning, setting up closer A.J. Ramos.

Fantasy Impact: Ramos' job is safe for now, but Rodney will earn saves on Ramos' days off and will be right on his tail in case he falters. It's a big hit to Rodney's fantasy value.

 

The Miami Marlins traded Single-A prospect Chris Paddack to the San Diego Padres for closer Fernando Rodney. Rodney will be in uniform for the Marlins on Friday.

Fantasy Impact: It's unclear for now whether Rodney will close for the Marlins. A.J. Ramos has been perfect this season and doesn't deserve a demotion. It will ultimately be up to manager Don Mattingly.

Fantasy Impact: No word yet on whether Rodney would close for the Marlins, but A.J. Ramos has done nothing to lose the job. It's likely that Rodney would become the eighth inning man in Miami, and would get an occasional save opportunity. Hold Rodney for now to see how the situation plays out, but it's likely he will lose out on save chances going forward. For the Padres, Ryan Buchter is likely the best bet for saves.

Fernando Rodney notches 16th save

Fri, Jun 24th 9:26am EDT
By Dan Harris

Fernando Rodney locked down his 16th save of the season on Thursday against the Reds, pitching a scoreless ninth inning while allowing only one baserunner. Rodney now has a 0.33 ERA and 0.90 WHIP.

Fantasy Impact: The Padres are petitioning MLB to change the run Rodney allowed on Tuesday to an unearned run, to keep his 0.00 ERA intact. It's largely irrelevant to Rodney owners, who have enjoyed a wholly unexpected and fantastic season from the 39-year-old closer. Rodney's stuff looks great, and he should continue being a trusted closer until or unless he gets dealt to a contending team and finds himself in a set-up role.

Fernando Rodney notched his 15th save of the season on Tuesday against the Orioles, throwing 1 1/3 innings and allowing one run. It was the first earned run allowed by Rodney all season.

Fantasy Impact: The Padres are actually seeking to have the run be deemed unearned, as Pedro Alvarez's easy ground ball hit the first base bag and rolled under Wil Myers' glove for the RBI hit. Regardless of whether Rodney has allowed one or zero earned runs this season, he's been absolutely dominant, and likely the bargain closer of fantasy drafts. He should continue to pile on the saves until or unless he is dealt closer to the trade deadline.

Fernando Rodney notches 14th save

Sun, Jun 19th 9:40pm EDT
By Dan Harris

Fernando Rodney struck out the side in a perfect ninth inning on Sunday against the Nationals to record his 14th save. Rodney has yet to allow an earned run on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Rodney's season is bordering on the absurd at this point. He was almost an afterthought on draft day, and now has 14 saves without allowing an earned run. He also has a 0.83 WHIP and more than a strikeout per inning. As long as Rodney remains in San Diego, at this point fantasy owners have to expect him to continue to perform like a top closer.

Fernando Rodney pitched a scoreless ninth inning to notch his 13th save on Wednesday against the Marlins. Rodney allowed two baserunners but did not allow a run. He has yet to allow an earned run all season.

Fantasy Impact: There's not much more to say about Rodney at this point, other than it would be nice if he got more save chances. He's been completely lights out this season, and has shown no signs of faltering. It's almost certain that a team like the Padres will deal Rodney to a contender at some point this season, so it wouldn't be a bad idea to try to deal him to a saves-hungry team at this point.

Fernando Rodney locked down his 12th save on Friday against the Rockies with a perfect ninth inning. Rodney has still yet to allow an earned run this season.

Fantasy Impact: It's been a remarkable season for Rodney, who just keeps getting it done. He has a minuscule 0.81 WHIP and nearly a strikeout per inning. He will likely be dealt at some point close to the trade deadline, but for now, enjoy this strange and unexpected ride.

Fernando Rodney nailed down his eleventh save on Saturday night, throwing 1 1/3 scoreless innings to preserve a one-run lead. Rodney still has not allowed an earned run on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Saves have been hard to come by lately for Rodney, but he has been incredibly impressive all season long. He has a minuscule 0.84 WHIP with about a strikeout per inning. He will likely get dealt toward the middle of the season, but he's an excellent option right now.

Fernando Rodney pitched two scoreless innings over the weekend, giving him 18 innings this year without allowing an earned run.

Fantasy Impact: Rodney just keeps on rolling along, though the Padres' anemic offense doesn't offer him many save opportunities. Given his performance this season, he's a solid second closer for now. It's likely, however, that even if he remains lights out all season, he will be dealt at some point to a bullpen-needy team.

 

Category: , Game Recaps


Fernando Rodney pitched two more scoreless innings over the weekend against the Brewers, and now has pitched 16 innings this season without allowing an earned run.

Fantasy Impact: Pretty incredible run from Rodney, who has also dropped his WHIP to a miniscule 0.88, while also striking out more than a batter per inning. At age 39 with a career WHIP of 1.35, Rodney has not suddenly morphed into Mariano Rivera. But, at this point, he's a good bet for a ton more saves over the next couple of months, until the Padres inevitably deal him close to the trade deadline.

 

Fernando Rodney notched saves in both games of Wednesday's doubleheader against the Cubs. He has 10 saves on the season, and has yet to allow an earned run.

Fantasy Impact: Rodney has exceeded any reasonable expectation so far this season, and shows no signs of slowing down just yet. The Padres have been playing better recently, so Rodney should continue to pile up the saves. It's only a matter of time before the wheels come off or he's dealt (or both), so just enjoy this strange ride with Rodney as long as it lasts.

Fernando Rodney locked down his seventh save of the season on Thursday against the Mets. Rodney entered with one out in the ninth with the Padres holding a 5-3 lead, and quickly got the final two outs.

Fantasy Impact: That's three saves in four days for Rodney, who still has yet to give up an earned run in 2016. His success doesn't appear to be too luck-based at this point, as he has a 0.91 WHIP. The wheels can come off at any point, and he's likely to be traded by the middle of the year, but he can certainly be started as a second closer at this point.

Fernando Rodney threw a perfect ninth inning on Tuesday against the Rockies to lock down his sixth save. He struck out two. He has yet to allow an earned run on the season.

Fantasy Impact: It's nice to see that the "good" Rodney has shown up in 2016. The Padres don't win many games, but Rodney is making the most of his limited opportunities. Given his history, he's still just a low-end second closer.

 

Category: , Game Recaps


Fernando Rodney still has not given up an earned run on the season, throwing 8 1/3 scoreless innings in 2016. He is 4-for-4 in save chances.

Fantasy Impact: Rodney has been stellar so far this season, though he does have four walks in those 8 1/3 innings, and a 1.20 WHIP. Rodney is notoriously unreliable, and the Padres don't afford him too many save chances. Still, with all the closer injuries, you could do worse than having him as your second closer at this point.

Fernando Rodney threw another scoreless inning on Friday night against the Cardinals, locking down his third save of the year. He has yet to allow an earned run in 2016.

Fantasy Impact: Rodney is throwing very well so far this season, with a 0.95 WHIP and seven strikeouts in 6 1/3 innings. We've seen enough of Rodney over the years to know he can't fully be trusted, but he obviously has a stranglehold on the Padres' closer job at the moment.

Fernando Rodney pitched a clean ninth inning on Tuesday against the Pirates for his second save of the year. He has yet to allow an earned run in 2016.

Fantasy Impact: Save chances for the Padres are few and far between, but Rodney looks to be continuing his turnaround he began last year after his trade to the Cubs. He's a low-end second closer.

Fernando Rodney pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning on Monday afternoon notching his fist save of the year. He gave up one hit, but got Darin Ruf to ground into a double play, and then Cameron Rupp popped out to end the game.

Fantasy Impact: Rodney should see plenty of chances for saves this year. If the 39-year-old can keep the ERA down, he should be set for a solid season as the Padres ninth inning guy.

Fantasy Impact: Rodney pitched in 68 games last season with the Mariners and Cubs, posting a 4.74 ERA and 1.40 WHIP with 16 saves. Rodney will likely be considered for the closer role in San Diego this season along with Kevin Quackenbush. Rodney could be an inexpensive option for fantasy owners on draft day with some upside if he can regain his 2012-2014 form.

After posting a 5.68 ERA and an astonishing -0.9 WAR in 50 2/3 innings in 2015, Fernando Rodney has been designated for assignment by the Seattle Mariners. (Source: Mariners PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Rodney was a dead man walking in Seattle for the last three months, but has a chance to be picked up by a contending team desperate for bullpen help. Even if he finds a new team in 2015, however, he seems unlikely to regain a closer role or the form that helped him lead the league in saves in 2014.

The Mariners closer lost again on Monday night, allowing the bases to load on two bunt base hits and a HBP before walking in the winning run on four straight pitches.

Fantasy Impact: Rodney is either mentally done, physically done, or possibly both. There is no excuse for keeping him on your roster.

Fernando Rodney entered the ninth inning with one out, but could only record one himself, while allowing two runs on two hits while walking two batters. The Mariners blew another ninth inning lead, eventually losing to the Rockies 7-5 in extra innings.

Fantasy Impact: Rodney was given another chance by Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon to earn a save, but again, as usual, he could not succeed in doing so blowing his sixth save of the season. Rodney could very well be running out of chances to remain in the Mariners bullpen, not just in the closer role. With a 4-4 record and a 5.56 ERA, not many 38 year-old relievers would still have a job with those numbers.

Fernando Rodney pitched the eighth inning with the Mariners leading 2-1 and struck out the side for an easy inning of work. The Mariners ultimately lost to the Twins 3-2 with a blown save in the ninth inning from Carson Smith.

Fantasy Impact: Rodney has still struggled out of the Mariners bullpen since being removed of his closer duties, but he has managed to lower his ERA to an ugly 5.44. With Mariners closer Carson Smith not performing much better, the closer situation in Seattle is up in the air. Monitor Rodney's status within the coming weeks to see if he could regain his closer job to end 2015.

Fernando Rodney pitched the ninth inning for the Mariners with the team trailing 8-2. He did not allow a base-runner and struck out one batter in his one inning of work.

Fantasy Impact: Rodney, who has had an awful 2015 campaign owning an ERA close to six, has not allowed a hit in his last two outings. It is doubtful he will be turning his season around, but if you are a Rodney owner it is nice to see decent production from the former closer. Unless Carson Smith loses the closer role for the Mariners, Rodney possesses little fantasy value.

Fernando Rodney pitched one inning, striking out one batter but allowed a solo home run to Yoenis Cespedes to blow his fourth save of the season. The Mariners hung on to beat the Tigers 7-6 in extra innings.

Fantasy Impact: Rodney had been given save opportunities since he was "removed" from the closer role by manager Lloyd McClendon, but has still struggled. It is likely Rodney's days of save opportunities are gone, and he could be fighting for a job in Seattle. Look to rid yourself of Rodney if he is on your roster.

Fernando Rodney got the call to pitch the ninth inning in a save situation and did not disappoint, collecting his 15th save in one inning pitched striking out two batters. The Mariners beat the Angels 3-1.

Fantasy Impact: Rodney had been removed as Seattle's closer in the beginning of the month and his replacement Carson Smith has performed well collecting five saves. Manager Lloyd McClendon chose to go with the veteran and it is unclear if this is a permanent change. Monitor the Mariners bullpen situation in the coming days for clarity before adding Rodney and his 5.70 ERA on your roster.

Lloyd McClendon on Fernando Rodney: "I’m not sure he’s quite ready to go back to the closer’s role. We’ll use him where we think he fits the best." "He’s getting better. He’s still working on things every day. It’s coming. It’s not quite there yet." (Source: TNT_Mariners on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Don't hold your breath waiting for Fernando Rodney to earn back the closer role. Carson Smith has been pitching good in his stead.

 

Fernando Rodney entered the ninth inning with the score tied at zero and promptly gave up a lead-off home run to Logan Forsythe. That would be the only run of the game as the Rays beat the Mariners 1-0.

Fantasy Impact: Although manager Lloyd McClendon said he is sticking with Rodney as his closer earlier in the week, he cannot continue to cost Seattle ball games. With a 2-3 record and more importantly an astronomical 6.94 ERA the days as the Mariners closer could be numbered for Fernando. Monitor Seattle's bullpen situation closely as there could be some changes on the horizon.

Fernando Rodney pitched a solid ninth inning, allowing one hit as he earned his 13th save on the season in the Mariners 4-1 victory over the Rays.

Fantasy Impact: Rodney has an ugly ERA just under 6.00 (5.89), but he has consistently racked up the saves in the Mariners bullpen. Depending on how your league operates, Rodney could possess a lot of fantasy value on his save numbers alone, but if you get hurt by high ERA and WHIP, Rodney is not the type of closer to rely on.

Fernando Rodney allowed no runs and no hits in an inning of relief against the Blue Jays on Saturday. He also struckout two in the appearance.

Fantasy Impact: Rodney has done one thing right for fantasy owners this season, and that is tallying saves, as his 12 ties him for ninth in MLB. However, his ERA is still a ghastly 6.23, and he's been consistent, but only in giving up runs, not preventing them. Use Rodney if you absolutely need the saves, but beware of the hit to your other categories if you do.

Fernando Rodney pitched the ninth inning allowing one run on one hit, while walking one batter, recording his second loss of the season.

Fantasy Impact: Rodney had been more consistent since the first month of the season, but struggled again with control issues. Rodney is 1-2 on the year with 9 saves and a 5.65 ERA, not typical numbers you expect out of your closer. As long as Rodney remains the Mariners closer, he possesses solid fantasy value due to the opportunities he receives.

Fernando Rodney pitched the ninth inning with a two-run cushion. He allowed a home run to David Freese and proceeded to close out the game as the Mariners beat the Angels 3-2.

Fantasy Impact: This was Rodney eighth save of the season, but with an ERA of 5.56 his value is tempered. Rodney has not proven he can consistently get batters out like he has in the past, evident by his 1.67 WHIP, his highest since 2003. As long as he remains the Mariners closer he will have value, but if he keeps allowing runs, it may not be his job for long.

Fernando Rodney allowed two base-runners, one on a hit, the other on a walk, but managed to escape the ninth inning without any damage done, recording his fifth save of the year, striking out one batter.

Fantasy Impact: Rodney has not looked sharp to start the year, despite his five saves. He owns a 6.48 ERA and a 2.05 WHIP, not numbers you want from your closer. It is possible, Rodney will begin to turn his season around, but I would proceed with caution when putting the 38 year-old in your lineup, he could implode at any time.

Fernando Rodney pitched the ninth inning, allowing two hits while striking out one batter en route to his fourth save of the season.

Fantasy Impact: It was not the easiest save of his career allowing two base-runners, but Rodney got the job done. The way Fernando has been pitching to start the year, it does not give you confidence if you own him in fantasy leagues. With an 8.53 ERA and a WHIP of 2.05, Rodney's best days may be behind him. Look to trade the Mariners closer for some value, or hold on to him and hope he does not implode.

Fernando Rodney need 15 pitches to strike out the side in the top on the ninth inning on Tuesday, as the Mariners lost to the Astros 6-3.

Fantasy Impact: Even though this was a non-save situation for the Mariners closer, it has to give both Rodney and M's manager Lloyd McClendon confidence in the reliever's abilities after starting the season with an ERA north of 10.00. Rodney led the MLB in saves last season with 48, so his fantasy value is still evident. As long as he remains in the closer role, Rodney will offer a lot of value in leagues that score saves.

Another save was blown Tuesday by Fernando Rodney who has struggled to find outs early this season. Rodney was also not able to close out the game in Sunday's contest, but eventually received the win after the Mariners offense bailed him out. Rodney was not as lucky this time around as he blew a 5-4 lead going into the ninth inning to receive the loss. Three hits, two walks, and two earned runs were surrendered by Rodney.

Fantasy Impact: This was the second poor outing in a row for Rodney. Right now there has been no word that he is in danger of losing the closing job. But one has to wonder how long he will last if he continues to let this many men on base. Danny Farquhar is most likely next in line to get save opportunities if Rodney were to eventually lose the job.

Thanks to Fernando Rodney the Mariners had to take this game into extra innings to get the win. Going into the 9th inning the Mariners had a 7-3 lead on the Athletics. Rodney got roughed up for two walks, four hits, and four earned runs. Rodney was eventually credited for the win after the Mariners scored in the top of the 10th inning to win the game.

Fantasy Impact: This was not a good outing at all for Rodney who got himself into trouble early in the 9th inning. He is still the undisputed closer for the Mariners and should see plenty of save opportunities this season. With that being said this hurt fantasy owners to watch. Do not panic yet though, he only blew three saves all of last year. Look for him to get back on track whenever the next save opportunity presents itself.

Fernando Rodney ready to roll

Thu, Apr 2nd 8:39pm EDT
By Kyle Smith

Fernando Rodney has been great this spring and looks ready to roll into the regular season. He has made eight appearances on the spring and has not allowed a run through 7 2/3 innings. He has had some control issues as he has allowed six walks in those innings but this is nothing new for Rodney.

Fantasy Impact: In 2014 Rodney was one of the best closers in baseball. He locked down 48 saves in 51 chances and held a 2.85 ERA. With the Mariners improved offense and excellent pitching staff, it is not inconceivable to believe that Rodney can replicate those numbers in 2015. He is likely undervalued in fantasy leagues because of his reputation as a guy that walks a lot of batters and should be a terrific value pick for all the owners that continue to believe in him.
