Mariners' Rodney isn't concerned following two bad outings


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) 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

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.


Mariners' Lloyd McClendon to stick with Fernando Rodney


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(4/12/2015) Mariners manager Lloyd McClendon remains unwavering in his belief in closer Fernando Rodney, reports The News Tribune.

Rodney came in Sunday in a non-save situation and surrendered four runs on four hits before the Mariners came back in the 10th to pick up the win. McClendon will continue to use Rodney even in non-save situations in the ninth,

"I did it a lot last year," he said, "and I'll do it every time this year. I'll tell you this, you're a fool if you don't put your closer in with a four-run lead.

"Because what happens is, you send somebody (else) out there, and somebody gets on base, then you've burned two guys because you you didn’t use your closer."

If the situation presents itself again Monday, McClendon plans to trot him back out there.

"Everybody flies off the handle when a guy blows a game, but I can't do that. Somebody has to keep their head. I choose to keep mine. So (Rodney) will be back out there tomorrow. Trust me."
