      Nationals' Fernando Rodney: Picks up second save

      Fernando 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 Washington 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.

      Nationals' Fernando Rodney: Notches first save of season

      Fernando 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.

      Nationals' Fernando Rodney: Clean first appearance as Nat

      Fernando 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.

      Fernando 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 Washington 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.

      Fernando Rodney: Officially cut loose

      Fernando Rodney was released by the Athletics on Tuesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.The veteran reliever had been designated for assignment Saturday, so this follow-up move was expected. Rodney's unsightly 9.42 ERA and 2.23 WHIP over 14.1 innings (17 appearances) this season may make securing new employment a rather challenging proposition.

      Athletics' Fernando Rodney: Designated for assignment

      Fernando Rodney was designated for assignment by Oakland on Saturday.The 42-year-old struggled to a 9.42 ERA and a 14:12 K:BB in 14.1 innings for the Oakland Athletics this season. Given those poor numbers and his age, there's a chance this is the end of the road for Rodney, but he did record a very playable 3.36 ERA just last season, so it wouldn't be surprising if at least one team takes a chance on him hoping that he still has something left in the tank. Wei-Chung Wang's contract was selected in a corresponding move.

      Athletics' Fernando Rodney: Melts down in save situation

      Fernando Rodney was charged with a blown save and took a loss after serving up four runs on three hits and a walk while retiring just one batter in the 13th inning Sunday against the Pirates.Staked with a 3-1 lead entering the bottom half of the 13th, Rodney was summoned for the save chance while regular closer Blake Treinen (elbow) was unavailable. After inducing a groundout from Elias Diaz, Rodney allowed each of the next three batters to reach base before Starling Marte took him deep for a walkoff three-run blast. Rodney's blowup lessens the likelihood that he'll get the next look in a save opportunity, though it may be a moot point anyway with Treinen expressing optimism that his elbow issue won't require a trip to the injured list.

      Athletics' Fernando Rodney: Falters in loss

      Fernando Rodney (0-1) allowed three earned runs on four hits and a wild pitch over two-thirds of an inning in a loss to the Red Sox on Wednesday. He struck out one.The veteran reliever was called upon to preserve a 3-3 tie in the ninth, but he promptly allowed singles to three of the first four batters he faced. Rodney then uncorked a wild pitch while working against Mookie Betts and subsequently allowed a two-run double to the Red Sox's center fielder. Rodney had also given up a pair of earned runs over an inning against the Angels last Friday, but he's generated scoreless outings in his three other appearances thus far.
