Tigers | Bruce Rondon battling illness

Sun, 24 Jan 2016 08:49:39 -0800

Detroit Tigers RP Bruce Rondon (illness) recently became infected with the chikungunya virus, which is an illness that is transmitted to people through mosquitoes, according to general manager Al Avila. He is expected to be completely healthy by the opening of spring training camp.

Fantasy Tip: As a result of the club's offseason acquisition of Francisco Rodriguez, Rondon will no longer be counted on to close games, although he could see an occasional save opportunity here and there. The 25-year-old right-hander went 1-0 with a 5.81 ERA, 1.613 WHIP and five saves in 35 appearances last season and isn't worth monitoring outside of AL-only leagues.

Tigers | Bruce Rondon to play winter ball

Tue, 10 Nov 2015 16:30:12 -0800

Detroit Tigers RP Bruce Rondon is throwing and will begin pitching in the Venezuelan Winter League next month, according to team official Al Avila.

Fantasy Tip: Rondon finished his season in disappointing fashion, being sent home for an apparent lack of effort. Regardless, he has the best stuff of Detroit's currently back-end relievers and is best suited for the closing role entering 2016, depending on who the Tigers bring in from outside the organization. Despite rough overall numbers in 2015, Rondon should be targeted as a under-the-radar closing option later in fantasy drafts.

Tigers | Bruce Rondon not injured

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 16:25:12 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Bruce Rondon said he was not injured after the radar gun showed his velocity was down in the low-to-mid 90s during his outing Monday, Sept. 21. Rondon previously has been clocked in the 97-100 mph range.

Fantasy Tip: It's still unclear if the Tigers have sent Rondon home for the rest of the regular season or just for the short term. Regardless, fantasy owners still looking to make headway in saves should look to pick up Alex Wilson for the time being.

Tigers | Bruce Rondon sent home

Tue, 22 Sep 2015 13:27:15 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Bruce Rondon has been sent home for "effort-related reasons."

Fantasy Tip: It's unclear if this is just for tonight's game or for the remainder of the regular season. Stay tuned for more details. If this is a season-ender for Rondon, run to the waiver wire to pick up Alex Wilson, who should be next in line for save chances, if you're chasing saves this late in the year.

Tigers | Bruce Rondon to close for Detroit

Fri, 14 Aug 2015 08:53:12 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Bruce Rondon will close out games in the ninth inning, according to manager Brad Ausmus. "The way Rondon has been pitching, I may end up giving him some more opportunities," Ausmus said. "It doesn't mean he will get all of them. He needs days off too." Rondon will primarily replace RP Alex Wilson (shoulder) in the closer's role after Wilson suffered from shoulder fatigue. Wilson could move into the eighth-inning setup role, but he could also see a save chance occasionally, according to Ausmus. Rondon picked up his second save in two chances Wednesday, Aug. 12, and he has a 5.60 ERA with 26 strikeouts in 17 2/3 innings in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Rondon is definitely the reliever to own in the Detroit bullpen now if you're still looking for saves. Pick him up immediately if he's still out there in your league. Rondon finally appears to be healthy and has the stuff suited to be successful in the ninth. Wilson could still vulture a save here or there if Rondon needs a break, so you may want to hang onto him in deeper setups.
