Mariners' Fernando Rodney allows homer, earns save Monday
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(5/5/15) Mariners closer Fernando Rodney gave up a home run in the ninth inning Monday but was able to finish off his team's 3-2 win over the Angels for his eighth save.
Rodney retired the first batter he faced in the ninth inning but then served up a homer to center field to bring the Angels within one. After another out, the closer put a man on base with a walk, but catcher Mike Zunino was able to throw out a pinch-runner on a steal attempt to finish the game.
Rodney owns a 5.56 ERA and 11:7 K:BB ratio in 11 1/3 innings.
Busy Mariners closer Fernando Rodney to rest Thursday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(4/30/15) Lloyd McClendon seemed to be stating the obvious when he told the Tacoma News Tribune it's "highly unlikely" that Mariners closer Fernando Rodney will make it to the mound Thursday in Houston. After all, Rodney has pitched four straight days.
Rodney has been lights-out after a brutal start to the season. He has not given up a run in his last seven appearances, notching five saves in the process. The result is an ERA that has shrunk from 16.20 to 5.23.

Mariners closer Fernando Rodney earns second save in as many nights

|(4/28/15) Mariners closer Fernando Rodney set down the Rangers in order in the ninth inning Tuesday to earn his sixth save of the season and his second in as many nights.|
Rodney fanned two batters in the inning and now has 10 strike outs in 9 1/3 innings this season.
Fernando Rodney allows a walk, hit but earns save in M's victory
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/28/15) Closer Fernando Rodney (S,5) allowed a hit and a walk in the ninth inning but perserved the Mariners' 3-1 victory over the Rangers on Monday.|
Rodney is now 5 for 6 in save opportunities this season.
|2014 summary: Fernando Rodney took all the highs and lows from his two years in Tampa Bay and packed them into his first season with the Mariners. He was the ace reliever of 2012 in the first half, compiling a 1.98 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in 38 appearances, and the erratic flamethrower of 2013 in the second half, compiling a 3.90 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in 31 appearances. The bumpy finish wasn't ideal, but it was mostly confined to September. Altogether, Rodney led the majors with 48 saves for a surprise contender.|
Playing time status: The Mariners have prospective closers in Danny Farquhar, Tom Wilhelmsen and Dominic Leaone, which would make it easy for them to turn the page on Rodney in the final year of his contract if he falls apart again. But even if he still has some bouts with wildness, he has pretty well established himself as one of the game's more resilient closers over the last three years, so he should get a long leash.
2015 outlook: With the league abounding in historically dominant closers like Craig Kimbrel, Greg Holland, Aroldis Chapman, Kenley Jansen, etc., Rodney doesn't really stand out, but his end numbers usually put him pretty high in the rankings. He may not inspire as much trust as some closers, but he clearly deserves to go in the top 20.
