Pirates' Richard Rodriguez: Rough results in April
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez is off to a slow start, registering a 4.38 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 12.1 relief innings for the Pirates.

He has one save and four holds but has struggled with baserunners and homers -- he's already allowed four -- in April. By comparison, Rodriguez gave up five home runs in 69.1 innings last season. The right-hander, who relies on a deceptive delivery, has seen a jump in contact rate from 71.8 percent in 2018 to 81.5 percent. He's not fooling batters and is in jeopardy of losing out on high-leverage opportunities.

Pirates' Richard Rodriguez: Struggling out of 'pen
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez allowed three runs (two earned) without retiring a St. Louis batter Monday. He hit one batter and gave up a two-run homer to Kolten Wong.

The 29-year-old has pitched poorly in both of his outings, allowing home runs to left-handed batters in each game. Rodriguez surrendered one homer in 130 plate appearances to lefties in 2018. The righty registered a surprising 2.47 ERA in 69.1 innings last season but is in jeopardy of becoming labeled as a one-year wonder without a quick rebound.

Pirates' Richard Rodriguez: Easy, breezy spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez pitched a scoreless first inning against the Astros on Monday, striking out one batter.

He's allowed just one run in 7.1 innings, crafting a 9:1 K:BB this spring. The 29-year-old is expected to serve as a bridge to the late-inning relievers, but he could see his own role bumped up a notch if Kyle Crick continues to struggle. Even so, Rodriguez won't likely receive any saves opportunities, but he might see an increase in holds. The right-hander registered 15 holds in 2018, though he didn't record his first hold until early June.

Pirates' Richard Rodriguez: Gives up more runs Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez allowed two earned runs on three hits in two innings against Minnesota on Tuesday.

The righty served up a two-run homer to Miguel Sano following a bloop double from Eddie Rosario. Rodriguez has now given up eight earned runs in his last 10.1 innings covering nine games. He's also walked five batters over the span after issuing only eight free passes in his first 39.1 innings. Rodriguez has become a risky commodity in recent weeks.

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.
