Padres | Fernando Rodney allows first ER of 2016

Tue, 21 Jun 2016 21:26:17 -0700

San Diego Padres RP Fernando Rodney allowed his first earned run of the season during an appearance against the Oakland Athletics on Tuesday, June 21. He still recorded his 15th save.

Fantasy Tip: Rodney went 26 1/3 innings without allowing an earned run before the A's scored with two down in the ninth to cut the lead to 10-7. Rodney came on in the eighth when it was 7-6, however, so he still got his 15th save in 15 chances. There's a good chance San Diego will move him before the deadline, and he could slot into a setup role in that scenario. Don't hesitate to pull the trigger on a deal of your own if the offer is reasonable.

Padres | Fernando Rodney being shopped

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 10:16:46 -0700

San Diego Padres RP Fernando Rodney is being shopped the by the team this summer.

Fantasy Tip: Most people will probably do a double take when they see that Rodney is sporting a 0.00 ERA and 0.85 WHIP on the season with 21 strikeouts in 23 1/3 innings over 23 outings. He's still walking a lot (3.9 per nine), and his strikeout rate is down from 11.3 K/9 to 8.1 this year, so extreme regression is coming soon. The Padres are looking to sell high, and you should, too.

Padres | Fernando Rodney has been perfect

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 15:51:06 -0700

San Diego Padres RP Fernando Rodney has not allowed an earned run in 19 innings this year. The San Diego record for innings without an earned run by a reliever to start the year is 20 by Butch Metzger in 1976.

Fantasy Tip: Rodney has been quite the surprise with San Diego, sporting a 0.89 WHIP and 10 saves after having a 4.74 ERA and 1.40 WHIP with two teams in 2015. Rodney is walking 4.3 per nine innings and striking out 8.1 per nine, so his overall line is due for steep correction. Selling high on Rodney might be the way to go if you're looking good in the saves column.

Padres | Ryan Buchter picks up save

Thu, 12 May 2016 20:20:57 -0700

San Diego Padres RP Ryan Buchter pitched a perfect ninth inning against the Milwaukee Brewers Thursday, May 12, to pick up his first save of the year. RP Fernando Rodney was unavailable after saving both games of a double-header Wednesday, May 11.

Fantasy Tip: It is worth noting that Buchter earned the save chance while Brandon Maurer remained in a setup role. If Rodney starts to struggle, Buchter could be worth stashing.

Padres | Fernando Rodney saves both games

Wed, 11 May 2016 23:24:30 -0700

San Diego Padres RP Fernando Rodney recorded his 10th save in the second game of a doubleheader Wednesday, May 11, after nailing down a save earlier in the day.

Fantasy Tip: Rodney threw 31 pitches in the two outings, and it's highly unlikely he's available to pitch if a save chance beckons Thursday against the Milwaukee Brewers. Brandon Maurer could be summoned for the save Thursday, but he's already worth consideration of owning with 23 K's in 16 2/3 innings.

Padres | Fernando Rodney stays perfect

Wed, 11 May 2016 15:54:54 -0700

San Diego Padres RP Fernando Rodney pitched a perfect ninth inning Wednesday, May 11, against the Chicago Cubs to record his ninth save of the season in as many tries. In the process, he maintained his 0.00 ERA on the year.

Fantasy Tip: He's been quite a story in 2016, as not even a year ago Rodney was so disappointing that Seattle shipped him out of town. Many probably thought the 39-year-old could no longer be an effective closer, yet here he is regularly shooting off crossbows again just like he always would. Averaging a strikeout per inning as well, Rodney has clearly performed like one of the best closers in the league through the first month and change of the campaign.

Padres | Fernando Rodney earns another save

Sat, 07 May 2016 05:38:05 -0700

San Diego Padres RP Fernando Rodney pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the New York Mets Friday, May 6, to earn his eighth save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Rodney has not allowed an earned run this season and has picked up a save in seven of his last eight appearances. Rodney is one of the better closers at this point and should be starting in all leagues.

Padres | Fernando Rodney picks up save

Sat, 23 Apr 2016 06:20:12 -0700

San Diego Padres RP Fernando Rodney pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the St. Louis Cardinals Friday, April 22, to pick up his third save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Rodney has not allowed an earned run in any of his six appearances this season and has struck out seven batters in 6 1/3 innings. Rodney should have a solid amount of save opportunities moving forward and should be owned in all leagues.

Padres | Fernando Rodney nearing game action

Sun, 06 Mar 2016 11:19:14 -0800

San Diego Padres RP Fernando Rodney (hamstring) threw batting practice on Sunday, March 6, and will throw one more session before being cleared for game action.

Fantasy Tip: Rodney will likely begin the season as San Diego's closer and could be a cheap source of saves late on draft day. The soon-to-be 39-year-old right-hander posted an underwhelming 4.74 ERA in 62 2/3 innings last season between the Seattle Mariners and Chicago Cubs, although the spacious dimensions of PETCO Park could do his overall numbers some good if he holds on to the job.

Padres | Fernando Rodney healing

Thu, 18 Feb 2016 08:54:20 -0800

San Diego Padres RP Fernando Rodney (hamstring) said he's about 85% healthy after suffering from left hamstring tightness in the Caribbean World Series.

Fantasy Tip: Rodney is likely to close for the Padres, but he'll be 39 in March. He wasn't very good in Seattle before finishing strong with the Chicago Cubs last season. He's likely to fall to the third-reliever range where he'll have minimal risk.
