Mariners | Fernando Rodney signs

The Seattle Mariners signed free-agent RP Fernando Rodney (Rays) to a two-year, $14 million deal Thursday, Feb. 6. Rodney could earn up to $15 million with performance bonuses.

Fantasy Tip: Danny Farquhar locked down the closer's role in Seattle late last season after Tom Wilhelmsen lost the job, and he was pretty solid. However, Rodney's impressive run as Tampa's closer in 2013 and closer-worthy contract make him the favorite to enter the 2014 season as the M's stopper. Farquhar could still see some save opps on occasion, but he's merely a handcuff to Rodney in deep mixed leagues now.
