Mariners pitcher Fernando Rodney earns third save Saturday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(4/19/15) Mariners closer Fernando Rodney worked a perfect ninth inning Saturday in Seattle's 3-1 win over the Rangers.
Rodney needed just 13 pitches to finish things off for the Mariners, including a strike out of Shin-Soo Choo. Rodney lowered his ERA to 12.46 in his third save of the year.
Mariners closer Fernando Rodney says recent rough streak behind him
|by Ted Leshinski | Staff Writer|
|(4/17/15) Mariners closer Fernando Rodney has hit a recent rough patch, allowing six earned runs in his last two appearances (1 1/3 innings) with a blown save but said he's put it behind him, reports MLB.com.|
"When the game is over, you leave with your head held high, you forget about it," Rodney said. "That's what I have to do."
Some closers study video or engage in psychological sit-downs with their pitching coaches, but not Rodney.
"I don't do any of that stuff," Rodney said.
No controversy: Mariners' Rodney in line for save opportunity
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/15/15) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon said that closer Fernando Rodney will pitch in a save opportunity Wednesday if needed, 710 ESPN Seattle reports.
Rodney has struggled in each of his last two appearances, surrendering a total of six earned runs in 1 1/3 innings while earning one win and one loss. However, McClendon isn't ready to remove Rodney, who saved an MLB-high 48 games in 2014, from ninth-inning duty.
Mariners' Rodney isn't concerned following two bad outings
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(4/15/15) Mariners closer Fernando Rodney has struggled in his last two appearances, allowing six runs in 1 1/3 innings. Rodney said the velocity on his pitches are fine, but his pitch location has been an issue.
"My mechanics are not the problem," Rodney said following his first blown save Tuesday against the Dodgers, per MLB.com. "I feel like I'm delivering the ball there. But a couple pitches I missed in the strike zone and, here, you can't miss."
Rodney said he will put his last two outings behind him and move forward. He added he did a good job of keeping the baseball down in the strike zone in spring training and will look to return to that form.
"It's only eight games," he said. "I'm going to prepare myself for tomorrow and try to be ready, because I know I've got my stuff."
Mariners' Fernando Rodney coughs up lead in the ninth
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/15/15) The struggles continued for Mariners closer Fernando Rodney, as he was charged with a loss and a blown save in Tuesday's game against the Dodgers. It was his first blown save since July 20, 2014.
Rodney (1-1) allowed back-to-back singles to Justin Turner and Jimmy Rollins, respectively to start the ninth inning. Carl Crawford reached on a fielder's choice after Kyle Seager and Mike Zunino caught Justin Turner out between third base and home. Rodney walked Adrian Gonzalez to load the bases before surrendering a broken-bat, two-run walkoff single to Howie Kendrick to end the game and give Los Angeles a 6-5 victory.
Rodney has allowed seven hits, four walks and six runs in 3 1/3 innings, with one strikeout to start the season. He owns a 16.20 ERA despite converting two of three save opportunities.
|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.
