RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Paco Rodriguez.
Rodriguez was a victim of the crowded Dodgers bullpen early in the year, bouncing between Albuquerque and Los Angeles on a few occasions before a back injury sidelined him from early August through mid-September. After being summoned in 76 contests in 2013 and pitching to a 2.32 ERA, it was very surprising to see one of the team's more talented relievers struggling to stay on the roster for a contending club. Rodriguez had a slight drop in his strikeout rate, but still sat at a strikeout per inning, while lowering his walk rate from 3.2 BB/9 in 2013 to 2.6 BB/9 last season. Rodriguez doesn't overpower opposing hitters, but his delivery is very deceptive and has proven to be particularly challenging for lefties, who have hit just .153/.231/.218 against him over the past two seasons. He'll likely have a regular place in the bullpen with the Dodgers for 2015.
The first 2012 draftee to reach the big leagues, Rodriguez followed up his 2012 cup of coffee with a solid first full season in Los Angeles. In posting a 2.32 ERA and 63:19 K:BB in 54.1 innings, Rodriguez proved he's more than a LOOGY, holding right-handed hitters to a .202 average. He struggled a little bit in September and was surprisingly left off the postseason roster, but Rodriguez should play a key role for the Dodgers again in 2014, behind Kenley Jansen and Brian Wilson in the pecking order for saves.
Nicknamed "Paco," Rodriguez blazed through the Dodgers' minor league system and became the first 2012 draftee to reach the big leagues. The 21-year-old left-hander allowed just two runs in 19.2 minor league inning with an impressive 32:6 K:BB before posting a 1.35 ERA in 11 appearances in Los Angeles. Rodriguez will battle for a bullpen job this spring and could be a middle reliever for the big club if things break right.
