RP - BOS
Joely Rodriguez has signed a one-year deal with the Boston Red Sox with a club option for 2024.
Rodriguez had a decent 2022 season with the Mets with a 4.47 ERA (3.62 xERA) and 10.19 K/9 in 50.1 innings. The Red Sox closing situation is not totally clear, but it still seems unlikely at the moment that Rodriguez would immediately be in line for many saves in 2023.
Joely Rodriguez pitched one scoreless inning and tallied the win over Milwaukee Tuesday.
Rodriguez has a 4.63 ERA, .227 BAA, and a 10.61 K/9 ratio in 51 games this season. The 30-year-old works normally in middle relief and does not hold any fantasy value.
With a two-run lead in the ninth inning, the Rangers called on reliever Joely Rodriguez. He allowed just one hit and succeeded in his mission of closing out the game, earning the first save of his career.
Rodriguez has a 5.91 ERA, 1.31 WHIP, and .271 OBA over the course of 23 outings this year. He's walked just five batters while striking out 22. The southpaw, who had a 7.71 ERA less than three weeks ago, has since allowed zero runs and three hits over his last five innings of work.
Rangers reliever Joely Rodriguez allowed a solo homer while pitching in relief against the Blue Jays on Saturday. He also struck out one Toronto batter.
It's been a rough stretch for Rodriguez, who has allowed nine runs over his last 4.2 innings of work. All in all, he is 1-2 with a 6.46 ERA, 1.43 WHIP, and .302 OBA as well as three walks and 17 strikeouts.
Rangers reliever Joely Rodriguez allowed one run on one hit (a solo homer) in the ninth inning against Seattle on Saturday. He also struck out a pair of batters.
Rodriguez did not factor into the decision, though his run proved to be crucial as Texas scored in the top of the ninth and lost by just one. The southpaw is 1-2 with a 6.43 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, and .310 OBA through 15 games (14 innings) this season.
