Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez shuts down Pirates
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(9/3/15) Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez didn't exactly heighten the tension in his performance against visiting Pittsburgh on Thursday. That's just the way he wanted it.
Rodriguez needed a mere eight pitches to dispose of the Pirates in the ninth inning after arriving with a 5-3 lead. He induced three groundouts to record his 33rd save in 34 opportunities.
Brewers RP Francisco Rodriguez earns 32nd save of the season Tuesday
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(9/1/15) Brewers pitcher Francisco Rodriguez only needed one out to record his 32nd save of the season during Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Pirates. He has now converted 32 of his 33 save chances this season.
Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez blows first save in poor effort
|by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com|
|(8/30/15) Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez has been a beacon of light in what has been a dark year for his team's pitching staff. But he descended to the level of his peers Saturday night against Cincinnati.
Rodriguez entered in the ninth with a 9-8 lead. He exited with a 12-9 deficit, courtesy of a two-run homer by Joey Votto, run-scoring passed ball and RBI single by Tucker Barnhart.
His first blown save of the season sent his ERA soaring from 2.01 to 2.58 and lowered his record to 0-3.
Brewers' Francisco Rodriguez becomes active leader in saves
|by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer|
|(8/19/15) Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez slammed the door for this 30th save of the season in the 8-7 win over the Marlins on Thursday. It wasn't a perfect outing, as the right-hander did allow a solo home run to Marcell Ozuna with two outs in the ninth. But he came back to strike out former Brewer Casey McGehee to end the game.
K-Rod is now 30-for-30 this season, and has converted 35 straight save chances dating back to last season. He now has 378 saves for his career, which passes Joe Nathan for most among active pitchers and seventh all-time.
Brewers' Francisco Rodriguez escapes bases-loaded jam
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(8/16/15) Brewers closer Francisco Rodriguez got a one-out save for his 29th save of the season, Sunday against Philadelphia.
Rodriguez is perfect in save attempts this season. He entered with two outs in the ninth and the bases loaded and induced a ground ball.
|2014 summary: Though he didn't enter 2014 as the Brewers closer -- a role he hadn't held full-time since 2011 with the Mets -- Francisco Rodriguez immediately claimed the role from a struggling (and ultimately injured) Jim Henderson and, at least for the first half, looked like the guy who piled up a record 62 saves for the Angels in 2008, compiling a 1.95 ERA, 0.84 WHIP and 10.0 strikeouts per nine innings over his first 32 appearances. But while he maintained a high save rate throughout, he had a 4.04 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 9.3 strikeouts per nine innings over his final 37 appearances, making him not the Brewers' first choice to hold the role in 2015.|
Playing time status: But after exploring the trade market, they ultimately decided he was the most logical choice, signing him to a two-year deal in late February. Setup man Jonathan Broxton has closing experience, though, if Rodriguez falters out of the gate.
2015 outlook: Even though Rodriguez will be closing again in 2015, he's not worth drafting where he finished among relievers in 2014, which is fourth in Head-to-Head leagues and fifth in Rotisserie. Obviously, his circumstances contributed more to that finish than his actual abilities. But he is worth drafting, probably as your second reliever, in the middle-to-late rounds.
