Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Done for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day injured list Sunday and will miss the rest of the season, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

The lefty strained his hamstring Saturday, and it's serious enough to end his campaign. Rodriguez finishes with a 2.13 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, 17:5 K:BB and three holds in 12 appearances -- an impressive return stateside after a couple seasons pitching in Japan. Rodriguez is under contract with Texas through next year, with a team option for 2022.

Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Leaves with hamstring injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez left Saturday's game against the Mariners with a left hamstring strain.

Rodriguez kept the opponent off the scoreboard for the 10th time in 12 appearances this season, but he also saw his outing cut short by his injury. He will undergo more tests Sunday to determine how long he will be sidelined.

Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Returns from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (lat) was activated off the 10-day injured list Tuesday.

The left-hander has been sidelined since late June with the left lat strain, but he'll join the Rangers with three games left in Oakland. Rodriguez may be eased into high-leverage chances early on, but if he looks good he could see some save opportunities with Jose Leclerc (shoulder) on the 45-day injured list.

Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Possible activation Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (lat) tossed a live batting practice session Sunday and could be activated for Tuesday's series opener against Oakland, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

Rodriguez is traveling with the Rangers on the current road trip and could join the team immediately. The left-hander could be added to the committee of relievers that will pick up save chances with closer Jose Leclerc (shoulder) on the 45-day injured list. Before dropping him into high-leverage spots, the Rangers would probably want to give him a few soft appearances.

Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Could return during road trip
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (lat) could be activated during the Rangers' upcoming road trip, which begins Friday and ends Aug. 6, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Rodriguez threw live BP earlier in the week and is traveling with the team, so he appears close to a return. Since the lefty was placed on the 10-day injured list retroactive to July 20, he'll be eligible to return as soon as this weekend. Once active, he figures to assume a spot near the back of Texas' bullpen, where saves are up for grabs with Jose Leclerc (shoulder) moving to the 45-day IL.

Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Throws batting practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (lat) threw a live batting practice session Tuesday, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

Rodriguez was placed on the 10-day injured list retroactive to July 20, so he is eligible to return as soon as this weekend. He's expected to be a setup man when he eventually returns.

Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Remains on IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers placed Rodriguez (lat) on the 10-day injured list Thursday.

The left lat strain prevented Rodriguez from cracking the 30-man Opening Day roster, but since he's already been working his way through a throwing program, a lengthy absence doesn't look to be in the cards. Rodriguez's placement on the IL was retroactive to July 20, so he'll be eligible for activation ahead of this weekend's series in San Francisco.

Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Throws bullpen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (lat) threw a bullpen session Saturday, Sam Blum of the Dallas Morning News reports.

Rodriguez's rehab is moving ahead better than anticipated, but he's still not going to make the Opening Day roster. Once healthy, Rodriguez will be one of the lefty setup men for closer Jose Leclerc.

Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Throws off mound
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (lat) threw off a mound Wednesday, Evan Grant of the Dallas Morning News reports.

This marks the first time Rodriguez has thrown since straining the muscle. The left-hander, who was slated to fill a significant bullpen role, will miss the start of the regular season.

Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Set to miss Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (lat) will not be ready for Opening Day, T.R. Sullivan of reports.

The lefty is slated to play a significant role in the Texas bullpen after making the jump back to affiliated baseball this season. He had a 1.64 ERA in 64 appearances for the Chunichi Dragons of the Japan Central League last season. While the unfortunate timing of this strained lat muscle means he won't be ready for the July 23/24 opener, the Rangers are optimistic that Rodriguez will be ready to go shortly thereafter.

Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Expected for bullpen duty
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez is projected open the regular season in the bullpen, T.R. Sullivan of reports. He allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits and two walks while striking out two over five spring innings.

Sullivan goes as far as calling Rodriguez a "lock" to make the final roster when MLB eventually begins its season. The 28-year-old left-hander pitched well in Japan over the last two seasons, after posting a 5.40 ERA in two partial seasons with the Phillies in 2016 and 2017. He's a classic reliever, whose mid-90s fastball is his top asset, while he uses a slider to generate swings-and-misses. Rodriguez's strikeout rate jumped to 10.6 per nine innings while he was with the Chunichi Dragons of Nippon Professional Baseball. He could serve as a late-inning lefty option, but he will need to out-perform Brett Martin first.

Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Comes to terms with Texas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez signed a two-year, $5.5 million contract with the Rangers on Monday, Jon Morosi of MLB Network reports.

Rodriguez has been impressive over the last two seasons with the Chunichi Dragons, posting a 1.85 ERA with a 103:28 K:BB over 87.2 innings of work. He figures to see mid-to-high-leverage innings in 2019. Rodriguez last appeared in the majors in 2017, struggling to a 6.33 ERA over 27 frames with the Phillies.

Joely Rodriguez: Parts ways with Baltimore
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez exercised an opt-out clause in his minor-league contract with the Orioles last week, Rich Dubroff of reports.

Rodriguez is officially a free agent and will likely look to land another minor-league deal with another organization. The 26-year-old made 33 appearances for Triple-A Norfolk this season, posting a 4.56 ERA and 52:18 K:BB in 49.1 innings.

Orioles' Joely Rodriguez: Sent to minors camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Orioles reassigned Rodriguez to their minor-league camp Sunday, Jon Meoli of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Rodriguez turned some heads during spring training with a 0.87 ERA and 0.87 WHIP in 10.1 innings, but there wasn't enough space on the roster for the Orioles to justify keeping him on their Opening Day roster. Instead, the Orioles will opt to retain Rule 5 pick Nestor Cortes as their second lefty out of the bullpen behind Richard Bleier.

Orioles' Joely Rodriguez: Receives invitation to training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez was invited to Baltimore's big-league camp as a non-roster invitee, Brittany Ghiroli of reports.

Rodriguez threw at the Triple-A level as well as in the Show during the 2017 season, but struggled at both. In the majors, he owned a 6.33 ERA and 1.93 WHIP as a member of the Phillies' bullpen. He was then traded to the Rangers, where he had very similar results and threw to the tune of a 6.33 ERA and 1.81 WHIP at Triple-A Round Rock.

Orioles' Joely Rodriguez: Inks minors deal with Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez agreed to a minor-league deal with the Orioles on Tuesday, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.

Rodriguez struggled with the Phillies last season before being designated for assignment, posting a 6.33 ERA across 27 innings and recording nearly as many walks (15) as strikeouts (18). He didn't do much better after getting scooped up by the Rangers, compiling a similar 6.33 ERA and 21:18 K:BB across 27 innings with Triple-A Round Rock before being DFA'd again. The 26-year-old has seen time in the majors each of the past two seasons.

Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez was designated for assignment Friday.

The Rangers needed to clear room on the 40-man roster for some September additions, and Rodriguez was a casualty. He posted a 6.33 ERA in 27 innings for Triple-A Round Rock after getting dealt by the Phillies earlier this season.

June 13, 2017 01:16 PM
Rangers' Joely Rodriguez: Dealt to Texas
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Rangers acquired Rodriguez from the Phillies on Tuesday in exchange for a player to be named later or cash considerations.

Rather than taking their chances with waiting for Rodriguez to hit waivers, the Rangers were proactive in bringing aboard the 25-year-old left-hander, who was designated for assignment last week. The Rangers will assign Rodriguez to Triple-A Round Rock initially, but it might not be long before he gets a look with the big club, which ranks 27th in the majors in bullpen WAR (-0.1), per FanGraphs. Rodriguez amassed a 6.33 ERA and 1.93 WHIP over 27 innings during his 26 appearances with the Phillies prior to being dropped from their 40-man roster.

Phillies' Joely Rodriguez: DFA'd Wednesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez was designated for assignment by the Phillies on Wednesday, Jim Salisbury of CSN Philadelphia reports.

Rodriquez compiled an unimpressive 6.49 ERA and 17:13 K:BB across 26.1 innings out of the bullpen this season, prompting the Phillies to cast him off the 40-man roster. A corresponding roster move will likely be announced before Thursday's series finale against the Braves.

Phillies' Joely Rodriguez: Serves up seven-run inning to Rangers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (1-2) allowed seven runs on six hits and two walks while recording just two outs during Thursday's loss to Texas.

The 25-year-old lefty had settled into a nice groove and entered the outing with just two earned runs allowed over his previous 14.2 innings for a 1.23 ERA and 1.16 WHIP. However, things went south in a hurry Thursday, and Rodriguez now sports a lackluster 6.97 ERA, 1.89 WHIP and 5.7 K/9 through 20.2 innings for the campaign.
