Dodgers | Paco Rodriguez makes mechanical tweak

Mon, 10 Mar 2014 14:14:58 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Paco Rodriguez thinks he's found a mechanical flaw that was responsible for his late-season collapse last year. Rodriguez said he's noticed that the flaw occurs when he breaks his hands at the start of his motion. "Once I figured it out, it was like, 'Wow, that's how it feels,'" said Rodriguez. "I was pitching so well, but my arm slowly came up and it took away from my ability to hide the ball. It's like night and day. I have a lot more control of my pitches." He put the fix into effect Friday, March 7, and he's seen immediate results.

Dodgers | Brandon League demoted in 'pen

Thu, 27 Jun 2013 13:29:09 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Brandon League won't be trusted in late-inning situations in close games anymore, according to manager Don Mattingly. RP Ronald Belisario will now be the eighth-inning setup man to RP Kenley Jansen, and the team will mix and match in the seventh inning between RPs Paco Rodriguez and Peter Moylan. League will be used in low-pressure situations to "start piecing him back together." The Dodgers think League is opening up his shoulder too soon in his delivery, which makes it easier for opponents to see his pitches.

Fantasy Tip: If he corrects his mechanical flaws, League could move back to important late-inning work, but he has virtually no shot at unseating Jansen as the closer again. Feel free to drop League in all formats.

Dodgers | Kenley Jansen rested

Wed, 26 Jun 2013 11:41:02 -0700

Los Angeles Dodgers RP Kenley Jansen was rested against the San Francisco Giants in a save situation Tuesday, June 25, because he had pitched in three straight games. RP Brandon League was brought in for the save, but he had to be pulled after allowing three hits and two runs. RP Paco Rodriguez eventually came on to record the save, his first of the year.

Fantasy Tip: League didn't help his chances at being considered again for the closer role if Jansen struggles. It doesn't appear like he'll have a shot anytime soon at usurping Jansen, so there's no reason to hold onto League outside of NL-only formats.
