Mariners | Fernando Rodney designated

Sat, 22 Aug 2015 23:29:24 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Fernando Rodney was designated for assignment Saturday, Aug. 22. In a corresponding move, RP Danny Farquhar was optioned to Triple-A Tacoma.

Fantasy Tip: These pitchers are mentioned because this likely cements RP Carson Smith as the closer in Seattle, much like manager Lloyd McClendon said two days ago. Rodney will likely be outrighted to Tacoma or cut outright. Smith's fantasy value isn't the best as he is struggling, but he will at least have job security.

Mariners | Seattle sticking with Fernando Rodney

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 14:07:42 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Fernando Rodney has an 8.50 ERA in the last five weeks, but manager Lloyd McClendon said Wednesday, June 3, that he has no intention of removing Rodney from the closer's role. Rodney blew his second save in his last three chances against the New York Yankees Tuesday, June 2, and he's allowed 17 hits and six walks in his last 12 appearances. His three blown saves this year equal the total he blew from all of 2014. Rodney has 14 saves this year but an ERA of 6.85, and opponents are batting .308 off him.

"Rodney has struggled a little bit," McClendon said. "So has everybody else. But the fact is, he's our closer. We need him. We're going to need him to be successful. People talk very lightly about changing closers, and that's fine. But you have to have somebody to do it. You don't just throw anybody in the ninth inning and say, 'Well, let him do it.'" RP Carson Smith has an ERA of 1.17 in 24 outings as the setup man, but he's mainly faced right-handers. McClendon expressed his reluctance to go to Smith because of his inexperience and unwillingness to use him on back-to-back days. McClendon mentioned RP Danny Farquhar as a player with closing experience, but he's currently in the minors.

Fantasy Tip: If you own Rodney, hopefully you already handicapped him with Carson Smith. If not, you may be left in the dust without a closer soon. Bench Rodney until he can turn things around in the meantime. There's no reason why Smith should be available on any waiver wires.

Mariners | Austin Jackson off DL

Tue, 26 May 2015 04:41:00 -0700

Seattle Mariners OF Austin Jackson (ankle) came off the 15-day disabled list following the Monday, May 25, game against the Tampa Bay Rays. RP Danny Farquhar was sent to Class AAA Tacoma in a corresponding roster move.

Fantasy Tip: Jackson ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) will be a source of points with his bat and some speed, so put him back in your lineup. If you still feel hesitant, then wait a game or so before putting him in.

Mariners | M's not overreacting on Fernando Rodney

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 10:09:17 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Fernando Rodney has had a couple of bad outings of late, including a blown save and loss against the Los Angeles Dodgers Tuesday, April 14, but manager Lloyd McClendon plans to ride out the storm with Rodney. Last year, Rodney blew just three saves in 51 attempts, but he also allowed at least one runner in 47 of 69 outings, including 34 of his 51 save chances. If McClendon chooses to go in another direction, RPs Danny Farquhar and Tom Wilhelmsen (on the disabled list) have closing experience, and RP Carson Smith has closer's stuff.

Fantasy Tip: Rodney owners should be a bit worried by his early-season struggles, especially at age 38. Rodney likely has somewhat of a long leash because of his 2014 season in Seattle, but saves poachers should be looking at Yoervis Medina and Farquhar in case Rodney continues to stumble. Smith is an intriguing bullpen arm, but he might be too far down the pecking order to matter.

Mariners | Fernando Rodney won't pitch Monday

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 16:14:16 -0700

Seattle Mariners RPs Fernando Rodney, Danny Farquhar and Yoervis Medina are not available to pitch Monday, April 13, unless it's an emergency, according to manager Lloyd McClendon. It's unknown who would close if the situation comes up.

Fantasy Tip: Carson Smith may be in live for a save chance tonight if the situation presents itself against the Los Angeles Dodgers. Don't be alarmed if Rodney doesn't pitch in the ninth tonight, as the team likely is looking to get him some rest. Rodney has pitched in each of the team's last two games over the weekend.

Mariners | Plenty of bullpen competition

Mon, 16 Feb 2015 14:55:08 -0800

Seattle Mariners RP Charlie Furbush likely will have a roster spot to open the year, as manager Lloyd McClendon wants two left-handed relievers. The other could be one of RPs Lucas Luetge, Rafael Perez or David Rollins. RPs Yoervis Medina, Danny Farquhar, Tom Wilhelmsen, Dominic Leone and Carson Smith will likely battle for the other four bullpen slots outside of RP Fernando Rodney. Ps Mark Lowe and Erasmo Ramirez are also options.
