  • Mets' Joely Rodriguez: Picks up first hold

    Rodriguez retired the only batter he faced to record his first hold of the season in Thursday's win over the Giants.

    After Carlos Carrasco gave up a two-out solo shot to Mike Yastrzemski in the eighth inning and got the hook, Rodriguez came in with the Mets ahead 5-2 and got Brandon Belt to pop out to end the frame. Rodriguez has been used in a situational role this season, working less than one full inning in three of his six appearances, and the journeyman southpaw's 9.64 ERA through 4.2 innings seems mostly a product of bad luck considering his 1.07 WHIP and 7:2 K:BB.

  • Mets' Joely Rodriguez: Dealt to Mets

    The Mets acquired Rodriguez from the Yankees on Sunday in exchange for Miguel Castro, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    The swap of relievers gives the Mets a much-needed lefty option, as Rodriguez becomes the only southpaw that's tentatively in the Mets' projected Opening Day bullpen. Rodriguez is expected to slot into the middle relief/setup ranks for the Mets after he accrued a 4.66 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 47:18 K:BB in 46.1 innings with the Yankees last season to go with one save and 13 holds.

  • Yankees' Joely Rodriguez: Back in action Thursday

    Rodriguez (neck) retired both of the batters he faced Thursday in the Yankees' 5-3 loss to the Phillies in Grapefruit League play.

    Rodriguez was making just his second appearance of the spring after he was idle for nearly a week due to a sore neck. The Yankees kept Rodriguez out in part because he had shown diminished velocity in his March 24 outing, but his fastball was touching 93 miles per hour Thursday, per Bryan Hoch of That's only one tick below his average velocity from the 2021 season, so Rodriguez is seemingly healthy and ready to go for Opening Day.

  • Yankees' Joely Rodriguez: Dealing with neck issue

    Rodriguez is receiving treatment for a pinched nerve in his neck Saturday, Bryan Hoch of reports.

    Although Rodriguez will face a slight delay in his spring schedule due to his neck injury, he's slated to throw live batting practice Monday. It's not yet clear whether the issue will force him to miss the start of the regular season, but it's encouraging that he'll be able to throw shortly after receiving treatment.

  • 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.

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