Wandy Rodriguez secures spot in Braves rotation


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

“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.

“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.”
