Braves release Wandy Rodriguez; Eric Stults in line for rotation spot?
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
|(4/3/15) The Braves released pitcher Wandy Rodriguez on Friday, according to CBSSports.com Baseball Insider Jon Heyman.
Rodriguez was competing Eric Stults for the fifth and final rotation spot, but revealed he was dealing with a shoulder issue after Tuesday's Grapefruit League start against the Astros. The move could open the door for Stults. The team is expected to announce that he is in the rotation later on Friday, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Rodriguez went 2-0 with a 3.13 ERA in six starts. He had a 23:8 K:BB ratio over 23 innings of work this spring.
Braves pitcher Wandy Rodriguez picks up minor issue in shoulder
|by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com|
|(3/31/15) Braves pitcher Wandy Rodriguez gave up three runs on eight hits with eight strikeouts in his start Tuesday against the Astros.
Rodriguez, who now has a 3.13 ERA this spring, said after the game his shoulder was giving him a bit of a problem after trying to field a ground ball, reports 680 The Fan in Atlanta.
Rodriguez said he was able to get his arm loose shortly thereafter and didn't think it was much of an issue.
Rodriguez, who is fighting for a spot on the pitching staff, has yet to lock up a roster spot.
"We have not made any decisions," manager Fredi Gonzalez said. "That's him; he doesn't shy away from contact, which is a great thing. He left a couple pitches up to a couple good hitters. But other than that, I liked what I saw."
Braves pitcher Wandy Rodriguez struggles in Thursday's start
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(3/26/15) Braves pitcher Wandy Rodriguez gave up four runs over five innings during Thursday's spring training game against the Pirates.
"I feel if I put the ball where I want I can get these guys out," Rodriguez said per MLB.com. "But [Thursday], the ball was a little bit up in the zone."
Rodriguez gave up eight hits, including two home runs, but he still received the win. The four runs were the first runs Rodriguez surrendered his since first spring training outing March 4.
Manager Fredi Gonzalez previously said Rodriguez has secured his spot in the rotation.
"[Thursday's] outing doesn't change my mind at all," Gonzalez said.
Despite Rodriguez securing his spot in the rotation, teams are still talking with the Braves about acquiring Rodriguez.
Wandy Rodriguez secures spot in Braves rotation
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(3/21/15) Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said before Friday's spring game against the Marlins veteran left-handed hurler Wandy Rodriguez has pretty much secured a spot in the team's rotation, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
“This is a veteran guy, we brought him in to get one of these spots," Gonzalez said before Friday's game. "Now all of a sudden two are available because (Mike) Minor is shut down for a little bit.
“So I think the chances of him making this club are really, really good. No matter whether he gives up 10 today or throws a one-hitter. Because you like what you’ve seen, you like what he’s done in the past, and so yeah, as far as today -- just let him go out and pitch.”
Rodriguez did just that too. He tossed five scoreless innings, allowing no hits and three walks. He also struck out seven.
Following the game, Gonzalez confirmed Rodriguez will be part of the rotation to begin the season. He is 2-0 with a 0.69 ERA in four spring starts.
“The way he’s pitched, he’s earned a shot in this rotation,” Gonzalez said. “I mean, who else? We gave him a chance to sign here and gave him an opportunity. With Mike going down, he’s your most logical choice.”
