Athletics | Encouraged by Fernando Rodriguez's progress
Oakland Athletics manager Bob Melvin said Saturday, Feb. 22, that he is extremely encouraged by the recovery progress of RP Fernando Rodriguez (elbow) from Tommy John surgery. He is nearly a year removed from the operation. While he is not expected to work in Cactus League spring games, he's already looking "like he could pitch in a game right now," according to Melvin. He is out of options, but likely to start the season on the 15-day disabled list so the team can get him a handful of minor-league rehab appearances with Triple-A Sacramento.
