Tampa Bay Rays RP Fernando Rodney is likely unavailable to pitch Friday, May 17, after tossing 35 pitches in his blown save Thursday, May 16. RP Joel Peralta is likely to close if a save situation arises.
Fantasy Tip: If you own Peralta in an AL league, make sure he's in your lineup tonight. Rodney shouldn't be on the hot seat for ninth-inning duties. We knew he was in line for some regression after a career year in 2012. It'll take a lot more for him to lose his job.

Tampa Bay Rays manager Joe Maddon said he's not worried about CL Fernando Rodney yet. He has blown three saves in 10 chances. Maddon likes Rodney's "stuff" and velocity, but the command just is not there.

Tampa Bay Rays RP Fernando Rodney has only appeared in four games in the team's first 14 games of the season, so he's had little chance to be overworked after making eight appearances for the Dominican Republic in the World Baseball Classic this spring. He blew his first save chance and gave up three runs in his next outing, but he hasn't given up a run in his last two appearances. "He's gotten his rest," Maddon said. "He's ready to go."

Tampa Bay Rays RP Fernando Rodney blew a save chance against the Baltimore Orioles Wednesday, April 3, for the first time in 20 outings dating back to last year. However, he was credited with the win in the game. He also brought a scoreless streak of 19 innings over 19 outings into the season, which was snapped.
Fantasy Tip: You had to come into the 2013 season with expectations that Rodney would regress at least a little bit from his fine 2012 season. This just reminds us that he's human after all, but he's still a top-notch closer for fantasy purposes.

Tampa Bay Rays RP Fernando Rodney will receive five to six days off until he pitches in a spring game after returning from the World Baseball Classic, according to manager Joe Maddon.

A report about Tampa Bay Rays RP Fernando Rodney receiving an extension from the team was inaccurate due to a "misunderstanding" between the closer and a reporter from the Dominican Republic. There have been no discussions on a new deal for Rodney. He will become a free agent after the 2013 season, and he would like to stay with Tampa Bay.
