Description: Mariners closer Fernando Rodney finishes day for Seattle's bullpen.
Insight: Nine relievers combined for the win against the Blue Jays, with Danny Farquhar getting the victory. Rodney did allow one run, but struck out two. He now has 47 saves on the year, with a 2.80 ERA. Elite stats from the closer position.
 
5/14/2014 9:18:00 PM
Description: Mariners closer Fernando Rodney has 11 saves in 13 chances and a 3.31 ERA this season, but he has allowed 19 hits and nine walks in 16 1/3 innings (1.71 WHIP).
Insight: Walks are nothing new for Rodney, but it's a little worrisome that he's allowed so much hard contact (28.6 percent line-drive rate).

Insight: With Rodney at the back end of the bullpen, Felix Hernandez (12-10, 3.04 ERA) should be able to improve on his win total from last season. The pitcher-friendly confines of Safeco Field should help Rodney lower his ERA in 2014 (3.38 last season).
 
2/2/2014 4:07:00 PM
Description: Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe believes there's a growing sense that New York will swoop in at the last minute and sign free agent reliever Fernando Rodney.
Insight: A Rodney signing is definitely within the realm of possibilies for a Yankees team that has gotten increasingly sneakier in recent years. Rodney was initially being pursued by the Mets and Orioles but now it looks like he could wind up as New York's setup man on Opening Day. Obviously, moving to the eighth inning would ruin any potential fantasy value that Rodney might have had.
 
1/24/2014 8:57:00 PM
Description: Less than 24 hours ago it looked like Fernando Rodney was about to sign with the Orioles. Now he's talking to the Mets, according to ESPN New York's Adam Rubin.
Insight: No deal is imminent. Rodney had one of the greatest seasons by a closer in major league history in 2012 but came back to Earth with an up and down 2013 campaign (3.38 ERA, 37-for-45 in save opportunities). He has an elite changeup and his fastball can still touch the high 90s, though it doesn't always land in the strike zone.
 
1/23/2014 5:38:00 PM
Description: Earlier today we heard from Grantland's Jonah Keri that Fernando Rodney was close to signing with the Orioles. The Baltimore Sun's Dan Connolly has since refuted that claim and says the two sides haven't spoken in weeks.
Insight: We're not sure what the holdup is. The Orioles need a closer and Rodney is the best one available now that Grant Balfour (who failed his physical when he went to Baltimore last month) is off the market. Despite Connolly's insistence that the two sides aren't talking, Rodney to the O's makes too much sense not to happen.

Description: Cleveland could be in the running for free agent closer Fernando Rodney. SOURCE: Cleveland Plain Dealer
Insight: They've also shown an interest in former Dodgers and Giants reliever Brian Wilson. The Indians parted ways with Chris Perez earlier this month. Rodney still offers a plus-fastball and one of the most deceiving changeups in the game but he's shown a tendency to get rattled and his control can be hit or miss.
 
Cold5/26/2013 10:59:00 AM
Description: Despite another meltdown Saturday against the Yankees, Rays manager Joe Maddon says Fernando Rodney will retain his role as the team's closer.
Insight: Just because Maddon is sticking with Rodney, it doesn't mean fantasy owners have to. Milwaukee's Francisco Rodriguez could be a good option for owners looking to add a closer from the waiver wire.
 
Cold5/25/2013 9:30:00 PM
Description: Fernando Rodney's nightmare season continued Saturday against New York.
Insight: Saturday was Rodney's fifth blown save of the season. He's now blown three out of his last five save opportunities with a miserable 13.50 ERA over that span. Manager Joe Maddon may want to consider using Joel Peralta in the ninth inning if Rodney's struggles continue.
 
Cold5/24/2013 5:22:00 PM
Description: Rays manager Joe Maddon said the team has not even had discussions about removing Fernando Rodney from the closer role, according to Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times.
Insight: After putting together one of the best seasons by a relief pitcher in major league history last year with 48 saves and a 0.60 ERA, Rodney already has blown four saves, allowed 11 earned runs and walked 17 batters in 18 1/3 innings. He blew two saves, allowed five earned runs and walked 15 batters in 74 2/3 innings last year. However, he remains the ninth-inning guy for the Rays.
 
Cold5/22/2013 9:36:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay closer Fernando Rodney blew his fourth save Wednesday in a loss to the Blue Jays.
Insight: The wheels are coming off for Rodney. The 36-year-old has posted a 5.40 ERA in 19 relief appearances and has now given up a run in three of his last four outings. It seemed impossible a year ago but Rodney could be close to losing his closer's job.
 
Cold5/21/2013 10:24:00 PM
Description: Rays closer Fernando Rodney already has allowed 10 runs in 18 innings this season after giving up five in 74 2/3 last year.
Insight: Rodney already has walked one more batter than he did all of last year too. The right-hander set a new record for lowest ERA by a reliever with a 0.60 mark, but this year he has a 5.00 ERA.
 
Cold5/17/2013 8:09:00 PM
Description: Rays closer Fernando Rodney had a meltdown Thursday against Boston. Despite Rodney's struggles, manager Joe Maddon says he's "not really concerned." SOURCE: Tampa Bay Times
Insight: Rodney gave up three runs and four walks in just two thirds of an inning. His season ERA is up to 5.28, his highest since 2003. It's only May and Rodney has already blown more saves (three) than he did all of last season (just two in 50 save chances).
 
10/31/2012 9:38:00 PM
Description: Tampa Bay has picked up closer Fernando Rodney's option for next year.
Insight: Rodney produced an outstanding 0.60 ERA this season while collecting a career-high 48 saves. Look for him to have another strong season in 2013.
 
10/19/2012 5:43:00 PM
Description: Rays closer Fernando Rodney has won the American League's Comeback Player of the Year award.
Insight: After struggling to a 4.50 ERA in 39 appearances out of the pen for the Angels in 2011, Rodney was magnificent for Tampa Bay this year, compiling a career-high 48 saves in 74 2/3 innings. His 0.60 ERA this season was by far the lowest of his 10-year major league career.
 
10/4/2012 10:21:00 AM
Description: Tampa Bay closer Fernando Rodney set a major league record this season by finishing with the lowest ERA ever by a reliever who pitched at least 60 innings.
Insight: Who knew Rodney would have his best season at age 35. In 74 2/3 innings, Rodney allowed just five earned runs all year That's an ERA of 0.60. Simply remarkable. Rodney converted 48 of 50 save opportunities in 2012 and figures to be among the first relievers drafted in fantasy leagues next season.
 
9/23/2012 6:10:00 PM
Description: Rays closer Fernando Rodney may get some Cy Young votes. He has 44 saves in 46 attempts and a 0.64 ERA this season.
Insight: Rodney has been lights out this year, allowing just five earned runs and walking only 14 batters in 70 1/3 innings.
 
6/28/2012 5:07:00 PM
Description: As we expected, Rays closer Fernando Rodney will hold onto the job when Kyle Farnsworth returns, according to Roger Mooney of the Tampa Tribune.
Insight: Rodney (0-2, 1.07 ERA) is having a career year, saving 21 games in 22 opportunities and holding opponents to a .176 BAA and Farnsworth is not exactly Mariano Rivera, so it makes sense that Rodney is staying in the role.
 
5/27/2012 6:52:00 PM
Description: Less than 24 hours after committing his first blown save of the season, Fernando Rodney was sharp on Sunday, tossing a perfect ninth inning in Boston for his 16th save of the season.
Insight: Rodney has only allowed three earned runs all season with two of them coming Saturday on Jarrod Saltalamacchia's walkoff home run. Rodney got his revenge on Saltalamacchia by getting him to ground out to start the ninth inning.
 
5/26/2012 10:59:00 PM
Description: Fernando Rodney couldn't stay perfect Saturday in Boston. The Rays closer finally blew his first save of the season, giving up a walk-off homer to Red Sox catcher Jarrod Saltalamacchia with one out in the bottom of the ninth inning.
Insight: It was the first homer Rodney had allowed all season and it raised his season ERA from an unheard of 0.38 to a slightly-less absurd 1.13. Rodney is having a tremendous season and had converted his first 15 save chances of the year before Saturday's loss to Boston. Don't expect this one poor outing to have too big an impact on Rodney going forward: he's still one of the hottest closers in the game right now.
