Orioles | Wandy Rodriguez opts out

Thu, 09 Jun 2016 04:02:53 -0700

Baltimore Orioles SP Wandy Rodriguez has opted out of his minor-league contract and is now a free agent.

Fantasy Tip: Unless Rodriguez has a dramatic turnaround in his career, he's best left on your bench unless you have a very deep league and can take a flyer on Rodriguez when he lands elsewhere. Although pitchers like Ubaldo Jimenez and Tyler Wilson are struggling, it was unlikely the Orioles would jettison either one to put Rodriguez in the rotation.

Orioles | Wandy Rodriguez signs with Orioles

Fri, 29 Apr 2016 07:58:52 -0700

Free-agent SP Wandy Rodriguez (Astros) signed a minor league contract with the Baltimore Orioles Friday, April 29.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez will likely need some time to build up his arm, but there is certainly potential to snag a rotation spot. He's a speculative AL-only grab for now.

Royals | Wandy Rodriguez released

Thu, 26 Nov 2015 23:39:26 -0800

Kansas City Royals SP Wandy Rodriguez was released by the club, making him a free agent.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez never made it to the parent club, instead drawing a 4.90 ERA in several appearances at Triple-A Omaha. A change of scenery could do Rodriguez good, but the likely reality is this pitcher is on his last legs as a major leaguer. If he is picked up by someone, monitor what the team does with Rodriguez before you slot him on a draft board.

Rangers | Wandy Rodriguez drawing interest

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 16:50:34 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez is drawing interest from teams as the trade deadline nears. Interested teams view Rodriguez as a fallback option if they aren't able to land a big-name starting pitcher. SPs Nick Martinez or Chi Chi Gonzalez could move back into the rotation if Rodriguez is dealt away.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has been a nice surprise for Texas (6-4, 4.07 ERA, 1.45 WHIP), but he's still only a fantasy commodity in very deep mixed and AL-only leagues. However, a trade out of Texas to a more pitcher-friendly home park could make him more attractive.

Rangers | Wandy Rodriguez could be dealt

Mon, 06 Jul 2015 19:37:36 -0700

The Texas Rangers have a glut of starting pitcher, so SP Wandy Rodriguez could be moved by the July 31 non-waiver trade deadline, according to major league sources.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,900; or 9.8% of cap) has re-emerged as a useful FantasyScore option, particularly on the road. He is 5-0 with a 2.23 ERA with 42 strikeouts over 48 1/3 innings, while going 0-4 with a 7.42 ERA in six starts at home. He probably wants to get traded, too, as he doesn't look comfortable at Globe Life Park in Arlington.

Rangers | Wandy Rodriguez lit up at home

Sun, 05 Jul 2015 05:18:38 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez fell to 0-4 in six home starts this season Saturday, July 4. Rodriguez has a 7.42 ERA at home.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is 5-0 on the road, which makes him a very disappointing FantasyScore asset. While his home/road splits are bound to even out eventually, Rodriguez has a 4.28 xFIP, and he's not usually worth FantasyScore consideration.

Rangers | Wandy Rodriguez is a road warrior

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 21:36:54 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez allowed one run while scattering eight hits over five-plus innings with seven strikeouts in a road win against the Baltimore Orioles Monday, June 29. He is 5-0 with a 2.23 ERA in eight road outings this season.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,900; or 9.8% of cap) has re-emerged as a respectable FantasyScore option, especially when he is pitching on the road.

Rangers | Wandy Rodriguez has been solid

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 10:19:12 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez is 3-0 with a 2.70 ERA in his last six starts and has given up just three earned runs or fewer in each of those appearances. He has never faced the Oakland Athletics, who he will pitch against Wednesday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has been a godsend to the Texas rotation and has really helped fantasy owners in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. He'll be a risk/reward play on FantasyScore tonight while pitching in hitter-friendly Globe Life Park. However, the A's rank 28th in baseball with a .631 OPS against left-handers.

Rangers | Wandy Rodriguez solid in 6-plus

Thu, 21 May 2015 19:50:04 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez picked up his second win of the season Thursday, May 21, against the Boston Red Sox. Rodriguez held the Red Sox to four hits, two walks and one run, while striking out five over six and two-third innings.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) allowed just a single run for the fourth time in six starts this season. With a 7.71 strikeout ratio, Rodriguez can be a sneaky GPP play on FantasyScore, but he comes with risk of an implosion.
