2018 Fantasy Outlook

Rodriguez was reassigned to the Red Sox's minor-league camp Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Rodriguez, who last appeared in the majors in 2016 with the Athletics, was sidelined for much of the 2017 campaign while recovering from shoulder surgery. The 33-year-old still looked a little rusty in the Grapefruit League with a 9.00 ERA and 1.63 WHIP over eight innings, so he'll need to prove healthy and effective in the upper minors before getting a serious look from the Red Sox.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2016
2015
2014
2013
2012
After spending a majority of 2014 in the minors, Rodriguez spent most of his 2015 season with the A's and was one of the better arms in the A's pen. Fern-Rod ended the season with a 3.84 ERA over 58.2 Major League innings and tossed in an impressive 10.0 K/9. He still walks too many guys (3.7 BB/9), but has lowered his walk rate from his two prior full MLB season when he was with the Astros. Rodriguez's LOB% was a low 65.7% and his FIP was 3.08, suggesting that there could be some further upside for Rodriguez heading into 2016. The A's seemed hesitant to try him in the closer role in 2015 and Sean Doolittle will certainly be the closer to begin 2016, but Rodriguez could be a sneaky source of saves and probably has the highest upside of the A's bullpen arms if Doolittle's injury issues from 2016 linger.
After missing all of 2013 to Tommy John surgery, Rodriguez spent a majority of 2014 at Triple-A Sacramento where he was very strong with an ERA just under 2.00 in 45.2 innings. He also missed plenty of bats, posting a 10.4 K/9 along the way. In his limited time in the majors in 2014, Rodriguez was effective, allowing only one earned run over nine innings. The A's bullpen is deep, but Rodriguez should have a chance to earn one of the team's final bullpen spots during spring training. If that materializes, Rodriguez will likely begin his campaign in lower-leverage spots.
Rodriguez was acquired by the A's in the Jed Lowrie trade with Houston, but he missed all of 2013 after getting injured in spring training and requiring Tommy John surgery. Rodriguez struggled in his last major league season (2012 with the Astros), compiling a 2-10 record with a 5.37 ERA in 70.1 relief innings, but he managed a 10.0 K/9. He walks too many guys (career 4.8 BB/9 in the majors), but if he can find some control and come back healthy, he has a chance to break into the A's bullpen at some point in 2014.
Although the results were nothing to write home about (5.37 ERA / 1.45 WHIP), Rodriguez was one of the most used relievers for the Astros in 2012. Rodriguez made a robust 71 appearances for the 100-loss Astros after appearing in just 47 games in 2011. He gets plenty of swings and misses when his rising four-seamer is up in the strike zone. He is a flyball pitcher, a trait that can lead him to occasional trouble. Rodriguez's workload would normally be cause for concern, but with better bullpen options in 2013, the Astros will likely roll back his innings, which should result in numbers more like 2011 than 2012.
Rodriguez posted a 3.18 ERA across two levels, spending most of the year in middle relief. Walks have been a problem throughout his minor league career, and his 30 free passes in 52.1 innings with the Astros won't cut it in Houston or on your fantasy team. With the Astros getting younger by the day, Rodriguez may not get as many appearances in 2012 as he did in 2011.
