Mariners closer Fernando Rodney finally fine in ninth Saturday
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(5/23/15) Mariners closer Fernando Rodney has been struggling so mightily when entering one-run games lately that some have called for his job. But he certainly calmed the critics Saturday.
Rodney entered and exited with the score 3-2 in snagging his 12th save. He struck out Danny Valencia and Chris Colabello in retiring the Blue Jays in order.
"He gets those one-run leads, I think he's a little bit more focused," manager Lloyd McClendon said to MLB.com. "Three-run lead, he's a little more relaxed. It's just the animal that most closers are. It's not just him. I've seen it with other guys, too. It gets within one or two, and they tighten down."
That ended a streak of four poor performances and five of six in which Rodney allowed at least one run to raise his ERA to a disturbing 6.61.
Mariners' McClendon not worried about Fernando Rodney's high ERA

|(5/23/15) Mariners closer Fernando Rodney has allowed at least one run in five of his six appearances in May, resulting in a 9.00 ERA this month. Despite some shaky outings, Rodney has converted nine straight saves since his only blown save of the season April 14.
Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon doesn't appear worried at all about Rodney's high ERA (6.61).
“I don’t think you worry about his ERA much,” McClendon said prior to Saturday’s game, per MLB.com. “A lot of that is inflated from (two early season games). My old skipper told me this a long time ago. Your responsibility as a manager is to get the ball to your closer in the ninth inning. After that, what are you going to do? He either wins it or loses it.”
Rodney entered Friday's game against the Blue Jays with a three-run lead. He allowed two runs on two hits, including a home run, before recording his 11th save.

Mariners P Fernando Rodney gets save despite giving up HR
|by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com|
|(5/23/15) Mariners closer Fernando Rodney picked up his 11th save of the season in Friday night's 4-3 win over the Blue Jays.
However, Rodney made things quite interesting with his performance. With the Mariners up 4-1, Rodney allowed two runs on a two-run home run from Chris Colabello in the ninth inning.
Rodney was able to escape the inning with the Mariners' win intact but it wasn't something Seattle had hoped for.
Rodney's ERA is now at 6.61 for the year.
Mariners' Fernando Rodney allows run, earns 10th save

|(5/20/15) Mariners closer Fernando Rodney surrendered one earned run on three hits but struck out two and earned his 10th save in his team's 4-2 win over the Orioles on Wednesday.
Rodney has surrendered runs in four of his last five appearances, including three straight, but he's managed three saves during that stretch and just one loss. His recent string of earned runs has given the closer a 5.87 ERA and 16:8 K:BB ratio in 15 1/3 innings.
Mariners closer Fernando Rodney survives scare for save on Sunday
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(5/10/15) Mariners closer Fernando Rodney gave up a run, but still managed to close the door on the Athletics in the ninth inning of Seattle's 4-3 win, earning his ninth save of the season.
With one out, Rodney served up a solo home run to Stephen Vogt over the right field wall to close the gap to one run. But Rodney didn't waver, as he got Ike Davis to fly out and struck out Coco Crisp to end the game.
Rodney moved his ERA to 5.40 in 13 1/3 innings of work with 14 strikeouts against seven walks.
|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.
