    • Nationals' Fernando Rodney: Picks up second save
      By RotoWire Staff

      Rodney worked around two hits in a scoreless ninth inning against the Marlins on Thursday en route to his second save of the season. The 42-year-old has found new life with Washington, as he's now turned in four straight scoreless appearances with two saves, a hold and four strikeouts since joining the Nationals at the end of June. He had a 9.42 ERA and 2.23 WHIP in 17 appearances with the A's before being released. Per Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post, manager Dave Martinez said Rodney is "going to be the guy" when regular closer Sean Doolittle is unavailable.

    • Rodney struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Friday to record his first save of the season in a 3-1 win over the Tigers. With Sean Doolittle having pitched the last two days, Nats manager Dave Martinez turned to Rodney and his 325 career saves to close things out, and the 42-year-old came through with No. 326. The right-hander was awful earlier in the year for Oakland, but he's seemed washed up before only to bounce back. Don't be shocked if Rodney puts together a solid second half in a setup role for Washington.

    • Rodney walked one and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning during Tuesday's win over the Marlins. The Nats were up 6-1 when Rodney got the call, so this was far from a high-leverage spot. The 42-year-old was having serious trouble finding the strike zone consistently with Oakland prior to getting released, so expect him to be confined to mop-up duty with Washington unless he can prove he's more reliable than his 8.80 ERA and 2.15 WHIP suggest.

    • Rodney's contract was selected from Triple-A Fresno on Tuesday. Rodney struggled to a poor 9.42 ERA in 14.1 innings of work with Oakland before being released in late May. The Nationals will hope the 42-year-old still has something left in the tank, with his 3.36 ERA last year offering at least some encouragement.

    • Rodney will be promoted from Triple-A Fresno on Tuesday, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports. Rodney is set to join the Nationals after spending the past three weeks with Fresno, compiling a 3.38 ERA, 1.75 WHIP and 11:8 K:BB across eight innings with the Grizzlies. Prior to latching on with Washington, the veteran reliever was cut loose by the A's after struggling to a 9.42 ERA, 2.23 WHIP and 14:12 K:BB in 14.1 innings.
