Mariners send RP Fernando Rodney to Cubs
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/27/15) The Mariners have dispatched veteran reliever and former closer Fernando Rodney to the Cubs for a player to be named, per the Chicago Sun-Times. He had been designated for assignment Saturday.
The 38-year-old Rodney has seemingly run out of gas this season. He owns a 5.68 ERA in 50 2/3 innings. He has tossed just one clean inning since Aug. 4.
Mariners designate RP Fernando Rodney for assignment
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(8/23/15) Mariners reliever Fernando Rodney was designated for assignment following Saturday's loss to the White Sox. Rodney, who signed a two-year deal with the Mariners prior to the 2014 season, has really struggled in 2015.
In 54 appearances, the right-hander posted a hefty 5.68 ERA and a 1.500 WHIP in 50 2/3 innings. He struck out just 7.6 batters per nine innings, his lowest mark since 2011.
Rodney has been particularly bad in the month of August. In 10 outings this month, he owns a 6.23 ERA.
In 2012, Rodney finished fifth in the American League Cy Young award voting, when he saved 48 games and posted a miniscule 0.60 ERA with the Rays.
Mariners believe former closer Fernando Rodney tipping pitches
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(7/27/15) Mariners coaches believe deposed closer Fernando Rodney has been tipping his pitches before his delivery, per the Seattle Times, which is further reporting that he has been working to solve the problem.
Rodney has allowed at least one earned run in six of his last eight appearances and has lifted his ERA on the season to 5.90.
Fernando Rodney takes loss for Mariners
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(7/19/15) Mariners reliever Fernando Rodney allowed a solo home run with two outs in the eighth inning to take the loss, Sunday against the Yankees.
Rodney entered a tie game to start the eighth, his fourth straight appearance in a non-save situation. He allowed a run for the fourth time in the last five games and a homer for the third time in the last five.
Mariners closer Fernando Rodney notches 16th save of season
|by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer|
|(7/5/15) Mariners closer Fernando Rodney recorded his 19th save of the year in Sunday's win over the Athletics.
Rodney closed out the ninth inning, though it took him 26 pitches to do so. He allowed a walk, one hit but did strike out a batter in the process.
Rodney (2-3) has a 5.18 ERA with 27 strikeouts and 17 walks in 33 innings of relief 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.
