Tigers | Francisco Rodriguez eats first loss

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 16:10:26 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Francisco Rodriguez suffered his first loss of the season Wednesday, July 20, against the Minnesota Twins. In a 1-1 tie, Rodriguez entered the ballgame in the ninth inning and proceeded to give up three runs (one earned), thanks to two home runs, in two-thirds of an inning. His record is now 1-1.

Fantasy Tip: There are many, many closers who, for whatever reason, manage to struggle whenever they're put into the ballgame in a non-save opportunity, and K-Rod is simply one of those pitchers. It was the same familiar scenario in this one, and miraculously, Rodriguez served up as many homers in the ninth inning as he did for the entire season over 33 2/3 total innings prior to today's contest. He'll be fine after this.

Tigers | Francisco Rodriguez had Zika virus

Wed, 01 Jun 2016 09:14:20 -0700

Detroit Tigers RP Francisco Rodriguez said he contracted the Zika virus last offseason and was laid up in bed for two weeks with severe body aches, joint pain, headaches and other symptoms. Rodriguez only was infected with the virus for two weeks, but he said it took two months before he was back to feeling like himself again.

Fantasy Tip: K-Rod luckily hasn't been affected by the illness during the regular season at all, and he's sporting a 3.86 ERA with 14 saves for Detroit. With the illness completely past him, you shouldn't have any worries if he's one of your fantasy closers.

Detroit Tigers RP Francisco Rodriguez picked up his 12th save in 13 chances Saturday, May 21, in a 5-4 win over the Tampa Bay Rays.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez has been a breath of fresh air for a Tigers bullpen that has been nothing short of rocky in the past few years. There are still times when Tiger fans clutch their chests in agony during bullpen appearances, but Rodriguez has gotten the job done. He is worth owning in all formats.
