  • Cubs' Manuel Rodriguez: Cast off 40-man roster

    The Cubs designated Rodriguez for assignment Tuesday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. Rodriguez was removed from the 40-man roster to make room for Julian Merryweather, whom the Cubs claimed off waivers from the Blue Jays. The 26-year-old right-hander posted a 3.29 ERA in 14 appearances with the Cubs while registering a 8:9 K:BB over 13.2 innings.

  • Cubs' Manuel Rodriguez: Tallies fourth save

    Rodriguez retired the final two batters in Wednesday's 4-2 win over the Phillies to record the save. Rodriguez now has four saves since getting activated from the injured list on Aug. 26. He's seemingly moved ahead of Rowan Wick in the closer pecking order, though Brandon Hughes is also in the mix from the left side. With seven games left in the season, Rodriguez could squeeze out a little more fantasy value if he sees a few more save chances.

  • Cubs' Manuel Rodriguez: Records third save

    Rodriguez picked up the save in Tuesday's 2-1 victory over the Phillies with a clean inning. He did not record a strikeout. In his first appearance since blowing the save and earning the win against Pittsburgh on Sept. 23, Rodriguez was called upon to pick up the save with a runner on first base in the ninth inning. He delivered by getting J.T. Realmuto to ground into a fielder's choice and Alec Bohm to bounce into the double play to end the game and record his third save of the season. In 12 innings this season, Rodriguez has a 3.00 ERA and is 3-for-5 in save opportunities.

  • Cubs' Manuel Rodriguez: Notches second save

    Rodriguez struck out one in a perfect ninth inning Friday to record his second save of the season in a 2-1 win over the Rockies. The 26-year-old has been tagged for a run in four of eight appearances since joining the big-league roster in late August, but he does have a win and a hold over that stretch in addition to his saves. With the Cubs evaluating talent ahead of 2023, Rodriguez appears to be getting a long look in a high-leverage role over the final weeks of the season.

  • Cubs' Manuel Rodriguez: Snags save in first appearance

    Rodriguez gave up two hits, a walk and an unearned run in one inning to earn the save in a 4-3 extra-inning win over the Brewers on Friday. Rodriguez entered in the tenth inning to protect a two-run lead. He allowed the automatic baserunner from second to score an unearned run and loaded the bases before getting out of the jam on a frantically-executed double-play. It was Rodriguez's first appearance of the season after battling an elbow injury all summer. He appears to be in the mix for high-leverage usage out of the Cubs' bullpen. Brandon Hughes had pitched in a save situation earlier in the game and blew the save for the second time in his last three chances. Rowan Wick is presumed to have been available but did not make an appearance in the contest.

  • Cubs' Manuel Rodriguez: Activated from injured list

    Rodriguez (elbow) was activated off the 60-day injured list Friday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports. Rodriguez looked like he had an outside shot to close games for the Cubs back in March, but he wound up failing to make the Opening Day roster and suffered a strained elbow after making just two minor-league appearances. He's ready to go after allowing one run while striking out 12 batters across six rehab innings and could theoretically move into a high-leverage role in a wide-open Cubs bullpen if his first few appearances go well.

  • Cubs' Manuel Rodriguez: Shifts rehab to Triple-A

    Rodriguez (elbow) gave up an earned run on two hits while striking out two in an inning of relief Wednesday in his rehab appearance for Triple-A Iowa. Rodriguez has been sidelined nearly all season with a right elbow strain, which he developed in mid-April during his second appearance of the 2022 campaign with Iowa. In a procedural move, the Cubs called Rodriguez up June 1 and placed him on the 60-day injured list the same day, so he'll need to be added back to the 40-man roster once his 30-day rehab window ends. Rodriguez started the rehab assignment Aug. 9 and made two appearances in the rookie-level Arizona Complex League before he was transferred to Iowa, so he could remain on the IL until the second week of September.

  • Cubs' Manuel Rodriguez: Ready for rehab assignment

    Rodriguez (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with the Cubs' rookie-level Arizona Complex League affiliate Monday, Jordan Bastian of reports. Rodriguez has been out of action since mid-April, but he resumed throwing from a mound in late July and is now ready to resume pitching in games.

  • Cubs' Manuel Rodriguez: Placed on 60-day IL

    Rodriguez (elbow) was recalled from Triple-A Iowa and placed on the 60-day injured list Wednesday. Rodriguez has been on the 7-day minor-league injured list with a right elbow strain since April 14, and Wednesday's move will clear a spot on the Cubs' 40-man roster. The right-hander will be eligible to return in mid-June, but it seems likely that he'll head back to the minors once he's cleared for game action.

  • Cubs' Manuel Rodriguez: Placed on injured list

    Rodriguez was placed on the 7-day minor-league injured list for an unspecified reason Thursday, Tommy Birch of the Des Moines Register reports. Rodriguez allowed four runs in two innings during his first two relief appearances at Triple-A Iowa this year, but he's now dealing with an injury that will force him to miss at least a week. The nature of the issue isn't yet clear, and a timetable for his return isn't known.

  • Cubs' Manuel Rodriguez: Optioned to Triple-A

    Rodriguez was optioned to Triple-A Iowa on Sunday, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Rodriguez was believed to have an outside chance at a ninth-inning role heading into the regular season, but he'll ultimately begin the year in the minors. The right-hander posted a 6.11 ERA and 1.70 WHIP in 17.2 innings across 20 relief appearances for the Cubs last year, but his fastball averaged 97.2 mph, so he could be in the mix for a high-leverage role for the major-league club at some point in 2022.

  • Cubs' Manuel Rodriguez: Darkhorse candidate for saves?

    Rodriguez may have an outside chance to close for the Cubs this season with manager David Ross planning on beginning the season with a mixture of pitchers in the ninth-inning role, per Jordan Bastian of There is no quote from Ross in the article directly putting Rodriguez in the late-game conversation. However, Bastian speculates Rodriguez could be in the mix for save chances along with Rowan Wick, David Robertson, Mychal Givens and Chris Martin. Rodriguez mostly struggled in his first cup of coffee in the big leagues last season, but he averages north of 97 mph on his sinking fastball, so he's at least a name to know.

  • Cubs' Manuel Rodriguez: Likely to make debut Thursday

    Rodriguez (shoulder) is listed among the Cubs' relievers scheduled to pitch in Thursday's Cactus League game against the Angels, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports. Rodriguez was sidelined with right shoulder inflammation to close out the 2021 season, but his inclusion on the pitching schedule Thursday implies that he'll be good to go for the start of the 2022 campaign. Before getting hurt, Rodriguez didn't distinguish himself while working out of the Cubs bullpen, as he gave up 12 earned runs on 18 hits and 12 walks over 17.2 innings. Rodriguez still has a minor-league option remaining, so he could find himself at Triple-A Iowa once big-league camp wraps up.

  • Cubs' Manuel Rodriguez: Out with shoulder inflammation

    Rodriguez landed on the injured list with right shoulder inflammation Friday, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports. Rodriguez got lit up in his last four relief appearances, allowing 11 runs (eight earned) on 10 hits and five walks over just 2.2 total innings. Prior to that point, he'd recorded a 2.40 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in 15 innings of work, so there's reason to believe his sudden downturn may have been injury-related. He'll be eligible to return in the final week of the season, but the timing of the injury means there's a very real chance his season is already over.

  • Cubs' Manuel Rodriguez: Earns relief win Tuesday

    Rodriguez (3-2) fired two scoreless innings, allowing just a pair of walks to earn the win against the Twins on Tuesday. Rodriguez inherited runners on first and second base with one out in the fifth inning. He got Luis Arraez to ground out into a double play to end the frame. The 24-year-old has allowed just one run in 10.2 innings over his last nine appearances. He carries a 2.63 ERA and 0.95 WHIP with 13 strikeouts in 13.2 innings this season.

  • Cubs' Manuel Rodriguez: Earns second win

    Rodriguez (2-2) tossed a scoreless ninth inning and picked up the win Monday against the Rockies. He struck out one. Rodriguez pitched a 1-2-3 top of the ninth inning in a 4-4 game, then earned the win when the Cubs scored twice in the bottom part of the frame. The 25-year-old has emerged as a candidate for saves in Chicago with Craig Kimbrel getting traded. Codi Heuer is also in the mix. Rodriguez has pitched well with a 2.70 ERA and looks like a decent fantasy option if he keeps seeing late-inning work.

  • Cubs' Manuel Rodriguez: Records first win

    Rodriguez (1-2) tossed two scoreless innings of relief to earn the win Wednesday against the Reds. He walked one and struck out three. Rodriquez earned his first MLB save earlier this month but he was the first pitcher out of the bullpen Wednesday, pitching the fifth and sixth innings in relief of Adrian Sampson. It looks like Rodriguez may be working in a flexible role for the Cubs, though that could be the case for most of the team's relievers -- the bullpen is a bit unsettled following the trade of Craig Kimbrel and Ryan Tepera at the deadline, as well as Dan Winkler getting designated for assignment. Rodriguez has been solid in limited work, recording a 3.38 ERA and 10 strikeouts across eight innings.

  • Cubs' Manuel Rodriguez: Charged with loss

    Rodriguez (0-2) allowed four runs (one earned) on three hits and no walks while failing to record an out in Friday's loss to the White Sox. Rodriguez entered Friday's game in the top of the 10th inning, and he allowed a two-run homer to begin the inning. The Cubs committed a fielding error, and he allowed a pair of singles to bring in another run prior to his removal. Although the right-hander picked up his first major-league save in his last outing, he's now been charged with losses in two of his last three appearances.

  • Cubs' Manuel Rodriguez: Takes loss in relief

    Rodriguez (0-1) took the loss in relief Sunday against the Nationals after allowing one run on one hit. Rodriguez entered the game in the bottom of the ninth inning with a 5-5 tie but only lasted one batter, as Yadiel Hernandez greeted him with a blast to left center field that gave the Nationals a walkoff win. This was Rodriguez's second appearance of the season after being called up in late July following the trade deadline, and there's not a lot of clarity regarding his role going forward considering all the trades the Cubs made over the last few days.
