Fernando Rodney blows save and takes loss

Fernando Rodney gave up four runs without retiring a single batter, blowing the save as the Diamondbacks lost 5-4 to the Dodgers.

Fantasy Impact

Yikes; we already knew that Rodney was a volatile and often implosive closer but he'd brought his ERA down from an astronomical 12.60 on April 29th to a still-hideous-but-much-better 4.30 having not given up a run (or blown a save) since, logging 15 saves in that span. After giving up a run in his last appearance, he followed up with this clunker where, upon entering with a 4-1 lead, he immediately surrendered a two-pitch single to Yasiel Puig, a four-pitch walk to Joc Pederson, a five-pitch walk to Cody Bellinger, walked in a run with a four-pitch walk to Logan Forsythe, a two-run single to Corey Seager, and an intentional walk to Justin Turner to load them up again before leaving with the game now tied at four runs apiece. Reliever T.J. McFarland would then give up a first pitch single for the walk-off and that was all she wrote. Rodney closes for one of the best teams in baseball so the saves will keep coming but it's hard for owners to sit through a 5.64 ERA and 1.35 WHIP.

Fernando Rodney blows fourth save of the season but picks up the win

Fernando Rodney allowed his first earned run since late April, which lead to his fourth blown save of the season. His offense came through in the bottom of the ninth to give him the win.

Fantasy Impact

Fantasy owners should hope this isn't the beginning of another meltdown for Rodney as his is one of the worst pitchers when he's at his worst and getting unlucky. The ERA is still an unsightly 4.45 but a 1.15 WHIP, 10.1 K/9, and 21 saves make Rodney valuable.

Fernando Rodney picks up the win

Fernando Rodney pitched a clean inning with one strikeout, picking up the win as the Diamondbacks walked off winners Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Rodney did what he was called upon to do, pitching a clean tenth inning before the Diamondbacks were able to walk-off winners on Chris Hermann's RBI single. Rodney, now 2-2 on the year, has been effective enough for 20 saves on 23 opportunities but is, as is often typical of him, pitching to a sketchy 4.40 ERA although his WHIP is an uncharacteristically clean 1.12. The Diamondbacks are winning lots of games this year, however, so he is a viable closer in fantasy formats everywhere regardless.

Fernando Rodney lowers his ERA on Sunday

Fernando Rodney made a one inning appearance on Sunday. Rodney walked one batter and fanned one as well.

Fantasy Impact

Rodney lowered his ERA on Sunday to 4.55. He hasn't been great this year, but his opportunities to save are there for now.

Fernando Rodney notches 20th save on Sunday

Fernando Rodney pitched a perfect ninth inning with three strikeouts on Sunday to lock down his 20th save of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Rodney still has not allowed a run in June, and now has 31 strikeouts in 26 2/3 innings on the season. It wouldn't be surprising if the Diamondbacks added to their bullpen near the trade deadline, but for now, Rodney remains locked in a shockingly reliable closer.
