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.

Tigers | Francisco Rodriguez earns another save

Thu, 14 Apr 2016 13:39:30 -0700

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.

Tigers | DET ends Joakim Soria pursuit

Tue, 24 Nov 2015 12:58:27 -0800

Free-agent RP Joakim Soria (Tigers) is no longer being pursued by the Detroit Tigers now that Detroit has traded for RP Francisco Rodriguez.

Fantasy Tip: Apparently the Tigers no longer think Soria can get the job done or they are fairly high on K-Rod. Soria will be a decent relief option in later rounds of fantasy drafts, just so long as you know he won't be in the Motor City.

Tigers | Francisco Rodriguez traded to Tigers

Wed, 18 Nov 2015 08:47:01 -0800

Milwaukee Brewers RP Francisco Rodriguez was acquired by the Detroit Tigers for an undisclosed package Wednesday, Nov. 18.

Fantasy Tip: The Tigers have long had issues with their bullpen, and K-Rod could slide in as the closer. The team was shopping around the trade market for some of the top closing options, but they balked at the price. K-Rod makes sense. He'll be 34 in 2016, and his stuff plays much better in the NL. However, you can't deny his results the last couple of years with 82 saves in 89 chances. His K-rate isn't at an elite level anymore, but it's holding firm at 9.79 K/9. He'll be a low-end second closer in traditional leagues.

Brewers | Milwaukee looking to become younger

Wed, 04 Nov 2015 14:36:35 -0800

Milwaukee Brewers C Jonathan Lucroy and RP Francisco Rodriguez are available in the trade market because the organization seeks to become younger.

Fantasy Tip: While it seems like Rodriguez has been around forever, he'll enter his age-34 season next year, and he projects to pile on the saves per usual if given the chance. Lucroy is a potential bounce-back candidate after being limited by injuries at multiple points of the 2015 season. Stay tuned for updates on just how many moves the Brewers make this offseason.

Brewers | Francisco Rodriguez won't be dealt

Sun, 30 Aug 2015 12:44:01 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers RP Francisco Rodriguez was claimed on revocable waivers by an unknown team last week but the Brewers pulled him back. As a result, he will not be traded this season.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez has saved 30 games in 31 opportunities while posting a 2.58 ERA in 47 games for Milwaukee this season. However, he has struggled of late, posting a 6.75 ERA through 9 1/3 innings during the month of August.
