|Rays interested in re-signing Fernando Rodney |
|by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com|
(10/11/13) The Rays are interested in re-signing closer Fernando Rodney, The Tampa Tribune reports.
Rodney was shaky in 2013, as he allowed a 3.37 ERA and blew nine saves in 46 chances. But he still had electric stuff, as he struck out 82 batters in just 66 2/3 innings, so the Rays would be willing to give him another whirl in the bullpen if the price is right.

(10/7/13) Rays closer Fernando Rodney picked up the win in Monday's American League Division Series Game 3 at home against Boston. Rodney almost blew the Rays' season, however.

The Rays won the game on a Jose Lobaton walk-off homer in the bottom of the ninth, giving Rodney the victory and the team a 2-1 series deficit as it heads to Game 4. Rodney blew eight saves during the regular season and finished with a 3.38 ERA, 37 saves and 82 strikeouts over 66 2/3 innings.
