Tigers | Francisco Rodriguez had Zika virus

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 09:14:20 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Francisco Rodriguez said he contracted the Zika virus last offseason and was laid up in bed for two weeks with severe body aches, joint pain, headaches and other symptoms. Rodriguez only was infected with the virus for two weeks, but he said it took two months before he was back to feeling like himself again.

Fantasy Tip: K-Rod luckily hasn't been affected by the illness during the regular season at all, and he's sporting a 3.86 ERA with 14 saves for Detroit. With the illness completely past him, you shouldn't have any worries if he's one of your fantasy closers.

Mon, 23 May 2016 20:40:28 -0700

Detroit Tigers RB Francisco Rodriguez pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the Philadelphia Phillies Monday, May 23, to pick up his 13th save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez has recorded a save in each of his last six appearances and has not allowed a run during that span. He should continue to receive plenty of save opportunities, which makes him a solid starter in most leagues.

Tigers | Francisco Rodriguez solid again

Sat, 21 May 2016 22:40:10 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Francisco Rodriguez picked up his 12th save in 13 chances Saturday, May 21, in a 5-4 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez has been a breath of fresh air for a Tigers bullpen that has been nothing short of rocky in the past few years. There are still times when Tiger fans clutch their chests in agony during bullpen appearances, but Rodriguez has gotten the job done. He is worth owning in all formats.

Tigers | Francisco Rodriguez back in the fold

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 12:33:16 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Francisco Rodriguez was activated from the family medical emergency list Wednesday, April 27, the organization announced.

Fantasy Tip: To start the season, Rodriguez has allowed five runs through 6 1/3 innings, including two home runs. However, his role as the Detroit closer is secure, and Rodriguez has notched four saves already. Return him to your seasonal lineups and continue to view the veteran as a middling option for saves.

Tigers | Francisco Rodriguez away from team

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 07:18:26 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Francisco Rodriguez has been placed on the club's family medical emergency leave list. In a corresponding move, P Matt Boyd has been promoted from Class AAA Toledo.

Fantasy Tip: It is unknown how long Rodriguez will be away from the Tigers. The 34-year-old right-hander has posted a 7.11 ERA and recorded four saves in six appearances this year. Expect RPs Mark Lowe and Justin Wilson to see the bulk of Detroit's save opportunities in K-Rod's absence.

Detroit Tigers RP Francisco Rodriguez pitched a scoreless ninth inning against the Pittsburgh Pirates Thursday, April 14, to pick up his second save of the season.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez has allowed only one base hit since struggling on opening day. Rodriguez should have plenty of opportunities to close games and should be starting in all mixed leagues.

Tigers | Francisco Rodriguez blows save

Tue, 05 Apr 2016 21:59:16 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Francisco Rodriguez blew his first save attempt of the season Tuesday, April 5, against the Miami Marlins, yielding three runs on four hits in his lone inning of work.

Fantasy Tip: Not how you want to start your tenure with a new team, but fortunately for K-Rod, Detroit managed to narrowly pull out the win anyway. Rodriguez proved last year he can still be one of the upper echelon closers in the league, so he'll probably overcome this poor outing and can still be trusted going forward.

Tigers | Francisco Rodriguez has swollen finger

Mon, 14 Mar 2016 09:15:25 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Francisco Rodriguez (finger) woke up with a swollen ring finger Monday, March 14, with something apparently embedded in his nail. He will receive treatment and hopes to pitch Tuesday, March 15.

Fantasy Tip: It doesn't seem too serious, but it bears watching. K-Rod doesn't have any real competition for Detroit's closer job, which makes him more of a weak No. 2 fantasy closer. Despite his age, Rodriguez still boasts solid skills as a late-inning reliever.

Tigers | Francisco Rodriguez to debut Saturday

Wed, 09 Mar 2016 18:27:39 -0800

Detroit Tigers RP Francisco Rodriguez threw 25 pitches while facing live hitting Wednesday, March 9. He is expected to make his exhibition debut Saturday, March 12.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez has converted 82 of 89 save opportunities over the last two seasons, with 135 strikeouts in 125 innings over that stretch. The 34-year-old right-hander should be viewed as a low-end No. 2 closer in traditional seasonal leagues.
