Pirates' Richard Rodriguez: Throws simulated game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (shoulder) threw a simulated game Saturday, Bill Brink of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Rodriguez has been out since June 8 with right shoulder inflammation, though the simulated game suggests he's making progress and nearing a return. Prior to the injury, the 28-year-old tossed 22.2 innings with a 2.38 ERA, striking out an excellent 36.3 percent of batters while walking just 3.3 percent.

Pirates' Richard Rodriguez: Heads to disabled list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez was placed on the 10-day disabled list Friday with right shoulder discomfort, Elizabeth Bloom of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Rodriguez started the season with 31 strikeouts and only three runs allowed over his first 16 appearances (19.1 innings), but has given up three runs over his past six outings (3.1 innings). The 28-year-old has a 2.38 ERA and 1.15 WHIP and will be eligible to come off the disabled list June 17, since the move is retroactive to Thursday.

Pirates' Richard Rodriguez: Struggles over weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez, who has allowed three earned runs in his last 1.2 innings, has failed to take advantage of an expanded bullpen role.

On Saturday he surrendered a walk-off homer to the only batter he faced. The righty then entered Sunday's game with his team trailing by five runs in a much lower leveraged situation. Closer Felipe Vazquez has struggled mightily in the last couple weeks, but Rodriguez has seen his own standing drop. General manager Neal Huntington said Sunday that the bullpen will likely go with the hot hand in setup roles, meaning that Rodriguez conceivably could get another shot -- but only if he shows signs of improvement.

Pirates' Richard Rodriguez: Showing impeccable command
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez has compiled a 1.47 ERA, 1.09 WHIP and 30:3 K:BB in 18.1 innings for the Pirates.

Two of his three walks have been of the intentional variety and the third one was to Joey Votto. Rodriguez continues to improve his lot in Pittsburgh's bullpen but ranks behind Felipe Vazquez and Michael Feliz for high-leverage situations. Should an injury occur, however, he would likely find his role expanded.

Pirates' Richard Rodriguez: Pitching well in limited sample
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez struck out six batters in two scoreless innings Sunday. He allowed one hit and no walks in a 9-0 shutout over Milwaukee.

The 28-year-old struggled with a small opportunity in Baltimore last year -- he allowed nine earned runs in five games covering 5.2 innings -- but has compiled sub-3.00 ERAs in each of his last four minor-league seasons. The righty hasn't given up a run for Pittsburgh in seven of eight outings, registering a 0.79 ERA and 0.97 WHIP in 11.1 innings -- including a whopping 21 strikeouts. He could move into high leverage situations behind Felipe Vazquez and Michael Feliz if eighth-inning man George Kontos continues to pitch poorly.
