Cubs | Fernando Rodney acquired by Cubs

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 16:49:34 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Fernando Rodney was acquired by the Chicago Cubs Thursday, Aug. 27, in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Fantasy Tip: Rodney's role in the bullpen is not known at this point, so owners should monitor the situation. Rodney could be a fantasy option if he receives some save opportunities in the final month of the season.

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 | Fernando Rodney tipping pitches?

Mon, 27 Jul 2015 15:47:21 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Fernando Rodney may be tipping his pitches, according to manager Lloyd McClendon.

Fantasy Tip: Rodney gave up two earned runs and a walk in an inning in his latest outing last Saturday, and he's allowed seven earned runs in 8 2/3 frames in July, boosting his ERA this year to 5.90. He hasn't done anything to justify being used over Carson Smith in the ninth inning moving forward. Only hang onto Rodney in the deepest of AL-only leagues in the unlikely event that he regains the ninth-inning job.

Seattle Mariners RP Fernando Rodney took the loss after allowing a solo home run in the eighth inning of a 2-1 loss to the New York Yankees Sunday, July 19.

Fantasy Tip: Rodney's ERA is up to 5.59, and he has allowed a homer in three of his last five appearances. It doesn't look like he will be reclaiming the closer role any time soon.

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 08:21:15 -0700

Mariners | Fernando Rodney earns 15th save

Sat, 27 Jun 2015 06:25:52 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Fernando Rodney recorded his 15th save of the season during the Mariners' 3-1 win over the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Friday, June 26. Rodney allowed one hit while striking out two batters in his inning of work.

Fantasy Tip: There is a chance Rodney walks back into the majority of save situations, but he'll likely have a short leash. Carson Smith owners shouldn't fret yet, either. Smith is the better pitcher, and he has done nothing to lose the closer job.

Mariners | Fernando Rodney getting back on track

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 17:49:52 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Fernando Rodney has not allowed a hit in his last five appearances, a stretch that spans 4 2/3 innings.

Fantasy Tip: Carson Smith has done nothing to lose his job as Seattle's closer. However, owners in AL-only and deep mixed fantasy leagues should still hold on to Rodney because manager Lloyd McClendon has said numerous times that they eventually want to go back to him.

Mariners | Fernando Rodney could see save chances

Thu, 18 Jun 2015 06:42:26 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Fernando Rodney could see save opportunities on days that RP Carson Smith is unavailable, according to manager Lloyd McClendon.

Fantasy Tip: Smith hasn't done anything to lose his grip on the position, but McClendon has said multiple times that they want Rodney to be their guy. Hold on to Rodney in leagues you have space to do so because it seems like a matter of time before the job is his again.

Mariners | Fernando Rodney remains setup man

Wed, 17 Jun 2015 20:37:34 -0700

Seattle Mariners RP Fernando Rodney has been better lately, but he will remain in a setup role for the time being, manager Lloyd McClendon indicated Wednesday, June 17. RP Carson Smith will continue to close games.

Fantasy Tip: Rodney has posted a 2.25 ERA with three strikeouts in four appearances since being stripped of closer duties. AL-only fantasy owners and those in deeper standard formats will want to keep him rostered. If Carson Smith should falter, Rodney could get another crack.
