Richard Rodriguez gets moved to Atlanta

RHP Richard Rodriguez is on the move to Atlanta, ESPN's Jeff Passan reports.

Fantasy Impact

Rodriguez was tremendous to start the 2021 campaign, and while he has been through some bumps as of late, he figures to be a key cog in a Braves bullpen that has struggled to find trusted arms this season. He could feasibly share save opportunities with Will Smith.
