by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

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.

Braves pitcher Wandy Rodriguez picks up minor issue in shoulder


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(3/31/2015) 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
(3/26/2015) 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
(3/21/2015) 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.”

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

The 36-year-old was limited to just 26 2/3 innings last year, but upped his value by pitching well during winter ball.

Rodriguez is expected to compete for the fifth spot in the team's rotation this spring. He owns a career 4.06 ERA over 1,471 innings.

Wandy Rodriguez undergoes knee surgery

(6/25/2014) Veteran starter Wandy Rodriguez, who was banished by the Pirates four weeks ago, has undergone season-ending surgery on his right knee, per ESPN.

The left-hander claimed several clubs had shown an interest in him, but that he decided to work on returning to full health in time for next season.

Wandy Rodriguez chased in second inning


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/21/2014) Pirates starting pitcher Wandy Rodriguez failed to make it out of the second inning Wednesday against the Orioles, in a game the Pirates would go on to win, 9-8.

Rodriguez was chased after a disastrous second inning that saw him allow hits to six hitters. He was ultimately tagged for six runs in the inning, though only one -- a leadoff home run -- was charged to him. Rodriguez's throwing error on a potential second out of the inning meant that all subsequent runs allowed were uncharged, despite his struggles.

Rodriguez allowed six runs --one earned -- on seven hits and a walk in 1 2/3 innings of work, and failed to record a strikeout in the outing. After the game, the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette asked manager Clint Hurdle if Rodriguez was going to keep his rotation spot, and Hurdle declined to answer.

At this point, it should be assumed Rodriguez will make his next start, scheduled for Monday against the Mets. With Rodriguez possibly dealing with lingering effects from a knee injury, while holding an 0-2 record and 6.75 ERA in six starts, his spot seems to be in question.

Pirates GM: Don't panic over Wandy Rodriguez's rehab starts


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(5/12/2014) Pirates general manager Neal Huntington said Wandy Rodriguez's performance in two minor-league rehab starts -- a 10.38 ERA and three homers allowed over 8 2/3 innings -- isn't reason for alarm. Rodriguez (knee) is scheduled to come off the DL and start Thursday in Milwaukee.

Rodriguez's numbers "are indicative of some mistakes. He got hit hard," Huntington told the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "But within those innings are some good innings where the crispness was back, the breaking ball was sharp, the curveball was effective, the fastball was down. At the same time, he also got hit.

"Sometimes a big leaguer on rehab is just a diff adrenaline level, a different intensity level, it’s almost like a spring training outing for them. They’re getting their pitches in. They’re getting their feel in. They may throw a breaking ball when they typically may throw a fastball. The may try to do something, just to see if they have got the freshness to run a fastball in on a Double-A hitter. And for the Double-A hitter it’s his World Series. He’s facing a big leaguer and he’s as locked in as he’s going to be."

"You’d like to see everybody have success every time they step on a baseball field but different guys approach it different ways."
