Rangers | Wandy Rodriguez is a road warrior

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 21:36:54 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez allowed one run while scattering eight hits over five-plus innings with seven strikeouts in a road win against the Baltimore Orioles Monday, June 29. He is 5-0 with a 2.23 ERA in eight road outings this season.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,900; or 9.8% of cap) has re-emerged as a respectable FantasyScore option, especially when he is pitching on the road.

Rangers | Wandy Rodriguez has been solid

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 10:19:12 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez is 3-0 with a 2.70 ERA in his last six starts and has given up just three earned runs or fewer in each of those appearances. He has never faced the Oakland Athletics, who he will pitch against Wednesday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) has been a godsend to the Texas rotation and has really helped fantasy owners in deep mixed and AL-only leagues. He'll be a risk/reward play on FantasyScore tonight while pitching in hitter-friendly Globe Life Park. However, the A's rank 28th in baseball with a .631 OPS against left-handers.

Rangers | Wandy Rodriguez solid in 6-plus

Thu, 21 May 2015 19:50:04 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez picked up his second win of the season Thursday, May 21, against the Boston Red Sox. Rodriguez held the Red Sox to four hits, two walks and one run, while striking out five over six and two-third innings.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) allowed just a single run for the fourth time in six starts this season. With a 7.71 strikeout ratio, Rodriguez can be a sneaky GPP play on FantasyScore, but he comes with risk of an implosion.

Rangers | Wandy Rodriguez set to start Friday

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 16:41:40 -0700

Texas Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez will start against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim Friday, April 24.

Fantasy Tip: Right-handed batters Mike Trout and Albert Pujols are reason enough to avoid southpaw Rodriguez in all formats Friday. At best, Rodriguez is a desperation start in a favorable matchup, but the Angels don't qualify Friday. And that is if he even sticks in the rotation for another start.

Braves | Eric Stults likely No. 5

Fri, 03 Apr 2015 09:37:55 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Eric Stults has likely won the fifth starter spot after the team released SP Wandy Rodriguez Friday, April 3.

Fantasy Tip: Stults has very marginal fantasy value, but the 35-year-old lefty could have upside in ripe matchups on FantasyScore.

Braves | Wandy Rodriguez wins rotation spot

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 14:25:09 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Wandy Rodriguez has been penciled in as the fourth starter, according to manager Fredi Gonzalez.

Fantasy Tip: The 36-year-old lefty has pitched just 89 1/3 innings over the past two years, and he returned an atrocious 6.75 ERA over his six starts and 26 2/3 innings last season. He has low-end appeal in NL-only formats, but at this point, Rodriguez doesn't tip the scales in mixed formats.

Braves | Wandy Rodriguez effective in spring

Sun, 15 Mar 2015 13:18:04 -0700

Atlanta Braves SP Wandy Rodriguez has been effective in spring camp, with one earned run in eight innings pitched over three Grapefruit League starts.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez only has a $2 million deal and could have an inside track on a rotation spot with Mike Minor's injury issues and Mike Foltynewicz appearing like he isn't ready. Still, the Braves may get cold feet. Should Rodriguez crack the rotation, he may be worth a late-round flier.

Braves | Mike Minor to see specialist

Thu, 05 Mar 2015 11:06:10 -0800

Atlanta Braves SP Mike Minor (shoulder) will be shut down indefinitely and will visit with a specialist in the next few days, according president of baseball operations John Hart. The team is taking a proactive approach, and they're hoping it's not a season-ending injury. Hart also said Minor might have another MRI exam on his shoulder. SPs Eric Stults, Wandy Rodriguez, Mike Foltynewicz and Manny Banuelos are competing for the fifth rotation spot, but if Minor isn't ready to start the season, the Braves could go with two of those pitchers in the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: The Braves are definitely hoping this injury is minor. But after Minor's frustrating 2014 season in which he dealt with plenty of shoulder woes, this can't be a good sign early in spring. Minor was considered a sleeper candidate before this news after being just a year removed from a 13-9 season in which he posted an ERA of 3.21 and a K/9 of 8.0 in 32 starts. Minor might still be worth a late-round stab in mixed leagues, but definitely keep an eye on the results of his shoulder tests.

Braves | Wandy Rodriguez impressing

Tue, 24 Feb 2015 14:35:15 -0800

Atlanta Braves SP Wandy Rodriguez has impressed so far in his spring workouts, and he is a leading candidate for the No. 5 starting rotation spot. Rodriguez is competing with SPs Eric Stults, Mike Foltynewicz and Manny Banuelos for the spot. The Braves could consider putting Foltynewicz or Banuelos in the bullpen if they don't win the job. Rodriguez has made only 18 starts the last two years due to injuries, and he was 0-2 with a 6.75 ERA in six starts with the Pittsburgh Pirates in 2014. Manager Fredi Gonzalez said Rodriguez is healthy and throwing the ball with little effort.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez would only be an option as a late-round pick in deep mixed leagues if he wins that final rotation spot. There's a lot of spring competition left, so we likely won't know for a while. Stay tuned.
