Pittsburgh Pirates
2019 Fantasy Outlook
Rodriguez is one of the best kept secrets in the major leagues. A career minor-leaguer before getting a cup of coffee with Baltimore in 2017, Rodriguez broke out last season with Pittsburgh, boasting a sparkling 2.47 ERA and 1.07 WHIP with 88 strikeouts in 69.1 innings, accruing 15 holds. Considering he didn't record his first hold until June 6, Rodriguez has a chance to post well over 20 this season. Curiously, eight of the 19 runs Rodriguez allowed came in a three-week stretch a little after the All-Star break. Rodriguez throws a 93-mph fastball three quarters of the time, spotting it effectively, generating a 14.9 SwStr%. He complements his heater with an 81-mph slider, inducing a 16.4 SwStr%. Rodriguez will battle Keona Kela for eighth-inning duties, both setting up Felipe Vazquez. Read Past Outlooks
$Signed a minor-league contract with the Pirates in December of 2017 that includes an invitation to spring training.
Gives up more runs Tuesday
PPittsburgh Pirates
August 14, 2018
Rodriguez allowed two earned runs on three hits in two innings against Minnesota on Tuesday.
ANALYSIS
The righty served up a two-run homer to Miguel Sano following a bloop double from Eddie Rosario. Rodriguez has now given up eight earned runs in his last 10.1 innings covering nine games. He's also walked five batters over the span after issuing only eight free passes in his first 39.1 innings. Rodriguez has become a risky commodity in recent weeks.
