  • Yankees' Joely Rodriguez: Re-signs with Yankees

    Rodriguez agreed to a one-year, $2 million contract with the Yankees on Wednesday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    The Yankees paid the left-hander's $500,000 buyout earlier in the week rather than exercise his $3 million club option for 2022, so the team ended up retaining him at a savings of $500,000. Rodriguez appeared in 21 games after being sent to New York from Texas and posted a 2.84 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 30:12 K:BB over 19 innings with the Yankees.

  • Joely Rodriguez: Club option declined

    Rodriguez's $3 million team option for 2022 was declined by the Yankees on Sunday.

    Rodriguez made a career-high 52 relief appearances in 2021 and will receive a $500,000 buyout from the Yankees as he prepares for free agency. The southpaw recorded a 4.66 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in 46.1 innings with the Rangers and Yankees last year.

  • Yankees' Joely Rodriguez: Notches hold against former club

    Rodriguez earned a hold against the Rangers on Monday by retiring one batter (via strikeout) after allowing one hit.

    The southpaw was summoned in the eighth inning with a runner at first base and two outs. He allowed an infield single to Nathaniel Lowe but struck out Nick Solak to end the threat. Rodriguez has 14 holds on the campaign, with four coming as a member of the Yankees. He has been a solid addition to New York's bullpen since coming over from Texas in late July, posting a 2.30 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 15:5 K:BB across 15.2 innings.

  • Yankees' Joely Rodriguez: Collects first win with new team

    Rodriguez (2-3) earned the win Sunday versus Miami by retiring the only batter he faced.

    Clay Holmes put a runner on with two outs in the seventh inning, but Rodriguez was able to get a groundout to end the frame. The 29-year-old was in line for the win when the Yankees rallied for the lead in the top of the eighth. This was Rodriguez's first appearance since he was acquired from the Rangers in the Joey Gallo trade. Through 27.2 innings this year, the southpaw has a 5.86 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 30:12 K:BB. While he logged nine holds in 31 appearances with the Rangers, he figures to see more of a middle-innings role with the Yankees.

  • Yankees' Joely Rodriguez: Dealt to Yankees

    Rodriguez will be traded from the Rangers to the Yankees, Bryan Hoch of reports. Joey Gallo will also be dealt to the Yankees, while the Rangers will acquire Ezequiel Duran, Trevor Hauver, Josh Smith and Glenn Otto.

    The Yankees acquired Clay Holmes earlier in the week in an effort to bolster their bullpen. Rodriguez will now further reinforce their pitching depth and provide another lefty for manager Aaron Boone to utilize. Rodriguez will look to improve his results with his new club, as he's struggled to a 5.93 ERA and 1.61 WHIP across 27.1 innings to this point in the campaign.

  • Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Notches first save

    Rodriguez pitched a scoreless ninth in Wednesday's 5-3 win against the Athletics, allowing one hit and recording his first save.

    With regular closer Ian Kennedy unavailable due to an illness, manager Chris Woodward turned to Rodriguez to nail down a tight win. Though he has the fifth most appearances among Rangers' relievers, a high 5.91 ERA suggests Rodriguez's use in the ninth was merely a necessity rather than a potential shift in role.

  • Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Stuck with loss Sunday

    Rodriguez (1-2) allowed four runs on four hits and a walk over two-thirds of an inning to take the loss Sunday versus Houston.

    The southpaw got to work in the eighth inning, but Houston rallied against him, loading the bases with three singles before Yuli Gurriel hit a sacrifice fly. Chas McCormick added a two-run single against Rodriguez, and reliever Brett Martin allowed an inherited runner to score. Rodriguez had pitched 10 straight scoreless innings prior to Sunday. He now has a 4.76 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 13:3 K:BB in 12 appearances, and he's also collected five holds.

  • Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Earns win in relief

    Rodriguez (1-1) earned the win Tuesday against the Twins after pitching a scoreless inning with two strikeouts.

    Rodriguez pitched the bottom of the ninth shortly after the Rangers rallied from a 1-3 deficit in the top of the same inning, and he looked dominant. The 29-year-old left-hander tossed 10 of his 12 pitches. He's now posted six straight scoreless appearances (six innings) with an 8:1 K:BB in that span.

  • Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Gets biggest out

    Rodriguez allowed a hit and two walks while striking out one over a scoreless eighth inning in Saturday's 8-6 win over the Red Sox.

    Rodriguez pitched into and out of trouble, retiring Xander Bogaerts with the bases loaded to preserve the Rangers' lead. It was the fourth hold for Rodriguez, who has authored five straight scoreless outings and taken control of the setup role since coming off the injured list two weeks ago.

  • Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Pitches eighth inning Monday

    Rodriguez struck out two over a scoreless eighth inning to earn his first hold in Monday's 6-4 win over the Angels.

    Rodriguez entered to start the eighth inning and retired the side in order, including inning-opening strikeouts of Shohei Ohtani and Mike Trout. Closer Ian Kennedy dusted off the Halos in the ninth for his fourth save of the season. The left-handed Rodriguez was recently activated off the injured list and has pitched in the eighth inning in both his appearances thus far. The Rangers are getting by with Kennedy as their closer, but Rodriguez is on hand in case the 36-year-old right-hander falters or manager Chris Woodward wants a southpaw in the ninth inning.

  • Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Takes loss in season debut

    Rodriguez allowed two earned runs on three hits while recording only two outs in the eighth inning in Saturday's loss to the Orioles. He struck out one batter.

  • Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Activated from 10-day injured list

    Rodriguez (ankle) was activated from the 10-day injured list Friday, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

  • Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Goes to alternate site

  • Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Hits 10-day injured list

    Rodriguez (ankle) landed on the 10-day injured list Thursday.

    Rodriguez is expected to miss roughly the first two weeks of the season while he works his way back from an ankle sprain. Once healthy, he could potentially push for save opportunities in a ninth inning that appears to be wide open following Jose Leclerc's Tommy John surgery.

  • Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Throws BP

    Rodriguez (ankle) threw batting practice Monday, Kennedi Landry of reports.

  • Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Won't be ready for Opening Day

    Rangers general manager Chris Young said that Rodriguez (ankle) will open the season on the injured list, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.

    Rodriguez is believed to be progressing well from the sprained ankle that limited him early in spring training, but because he has yet to pitch in a Cactus League game with the start of regular season just 10 days away, the Rangers aren't counting on him to be an option for Opening Day. Young noted that Rodriguez will likely be in store for an abbreviated absence to begin the season, so he could be ready for activation from the IL in the minimum 10 days.
