Rockies' Dereck Rodriguez: Gives up five runs in spring start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez allowed five runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two over three innings as he was charged with the loss in Thursday's spring game against the Cubs.

Rodriguez allowed two runs in each of his first two Cactus League appearances this year. He struggled early in Thursday's matchup and gave up three runs in the first inning before allowing runs to come across in each of the next two frames. Since Austin Gomber has pitched incredibly well during spring training, Rodriguez's chance at a starting job appears to be slim, but he could still be in contention to serve as a long reliever if he can settle down ahead of the regular season.

Rockies' Dereck Rodriguez: Allows two runs in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (1-1) allowed two runs on four hits and no walks while striking out two over three innings as he earned the win in Saturday's spring game against the Angels.

Rodriguez has now allowed two runs in each of his first two spring outings, but he had much greater command against the Angels on Saturday. He threw 28 of his 41 pitches for strikes, and the only run production came via a two-run home run to Jo Adell in the bottom of the second inning. "If I make my pitch and the location that I want, with the confidence I have, I can get anybody out," Rodriguez said. The right-hander appeared to be in line to compete for a rotation spot as a non-roster invitee this spring, but Austin Gomber is the favorite to win a starting job after a strong start to Cactus League play. However, Rodriguez could still make the roster as a long reliever if he continues to pitch effectively, Thomas Harding of reports.

Rockies' Dereck Rodriguez: Gets minors deal with Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez signed a minor-league deal with the Rockies on Monday which includes an invitation to big-league camp, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Rodriguez broke into the league with a 2.81 ERA in 2018, though his 3.74 FIP and 4.56 xFIP that season suggested he'd overachieved by quite a bit. Over the last two seasons, he hasn't pitched at even the level suggested by those numbers, as he owns a 5.94 ERA in 103.0 innings. While he could earn opportunities with the Rockies at some point, adding Coors Field to an already unimpressive recent resume makes him a rather unappealing fantasy option.

Tigers' Dereck Rodriguez: Outrighted to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez cleared waivers Tuesday and was outrighted to Triple-A Toledo.

Rodriguez made just two appearances for the Giants this season, giving up six runs on 10 hits over four innings of work, before being waived and claimed by the Tigers. He clearly wasn't a major part of Detroit's plans, as he spent the remainder of the season at the team's alternate training site. Now that he's off the 40-man roster, he's even further from making his Tigers' debut.

Tigers' Dereck Rodriguez: Catches on with Detroit
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Tigers claimed Rodriguez off waivers Monday and optioned him to their alternate training site.

After being cast off the Giants' 40-man roster last week, Rodriguez will move on to the organization with whom his father -- Hall of Fame catcher Ivan -- played for from 2004 through 2008. The younger Rodriguez looked like he might become a mainstay in the San Francisco rotation after posting a 2.81 ERA over 21 outings (19 starts) as a rookie in 2018, but his effectiveness has waned over the past two seasons. Since that time, Rodriguez has submitted a 5.94 ERA (5.89 FIP) and a 7.3 K-BB% over 103 innings in the majors.

Giants' Dereck Rodriguez: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez was designated for assignment by the Giants on Wednesday.

Rodriguez's struggles date back to last season, as the right-hander owns a 5.94 ERA, 1.52 WHIP and 73:39 K:BB over 103 innings spanning this season and last. He notched a 2.81 ERA (3.73 FIP) across 118.1 innings in 2018, so Rodriguez could draw some interest on waivers. Joey Rickard was summoned to the big-league club in a corresponding move.

Giants' Dereck Rodriguez: Sent down to alternate site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez was optioned to the Giants' alternate training site Monday.

Rodriguez got roughed up in relief Sunday as he allowed five runs on seven hits and one walk while striking out one over 1.2 innings. As a result, he'll be removed from the 28-man roster, but he'll remain on the taxi squad for the team's current road trip. Outfielder Steven Duggar was recalled from alternate camp in a corresponding move.

Giants' Dereck Rodriguez: Joins major-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez was added to the Giants' major-league roster Wednesday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.

Manager Gabe Kapler said Wednesday that Rodriguez's velocity increased in recent throwing sessions while serving on the taxi squad, and he'll join the pitching staff along with right-hander Trevor Cahill. Cahill is scheduled to start Wednesday but is reportedly only built up to approximately 50 pitches. Rodriguez could serve as a long reliever if Cahill isn't able to last very long against the Astros. Rodriguez made 28 appearances (16 starts) for San Francisco last season, posting a 5.64 ERA and 71:36 K:BB over 99 innings.

Giants' Dereck Rodriguez: Left off roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Giants optioned Rodriguez to their alternate training site Wednesday.

Manager Gabe Kapler has yet to formally announce a fifth starter, but Rodriguez's demotion likely takes him out of consideration for that role. Rodriguez served as a swingman for the Giants in 2019, starting in 16 of his 28 appearances and going 6-11 with a 5.64 ERA and 1.45 WHIP over 99 innings.

Giants' Dereck Rodriguez: Could be headed for bullpen role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez will likely work as a reliever if he makes the big-league club, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Even with the injury to Tyler Beede (elbow), Rodriguez is not considered a favorite to land a rotation spot. Instead, he'll be battling to make the 26-man roster as a reliever, or else he'll likely head to the minors to remain stretched out as a starter. After a successful debut in 2018, Rodriguez was hit hard to the tune of a 5.64 ERA and 1.46 WHIP across 99 innings last season.

Giants' Dereck Rodriguez: Gets ball for Cactus League opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez is scheduled to start Saturday's Cactus League opener against the Dodgers, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Rodriguez started 16 games for the Giants in 2019, recording a 5.64 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 71:36 K:BB across 99 innings. The 27-year old is among a plethora of pitchers vying for a back-end spot in the starting rotation following San Francisco's offseason additions of experienced major-league arms Kevin Gausman and Drew Smyly. While it is encouraging that Rodriguez is getting the nod to begin spring training, he is likely heading for a move to the bullpen or the minor leagues unless the Giants' pitching staff is plagued by preseason injuries.

Giants' Dereck Rodriguez: Shelled in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (6-11) lasted just 1.2 innings while giving up five runs on five hits and two walks while striking out two as he took the loss in the Giants' 9-0 defeat to the Dodgers on Sunday.

Madison Bumgarner was originally lined up to start this one but was dropped in favor of Rodriguez who probably reminded Manager Bruce Bochy why he was dropped from the rotation earlier this month. The right-hander finished the season with a 5.64 ERA over 99 innings, a year after his impressive rookie campaign in which he posted a 2.81 ERA through 118.1 innings. Rodriguez will have some things to work on in the offseason as he hopes to turn things around again in 2020.

Giants' Dereck Rodriguez: Starting Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez will start Sunday's game against the Dodgers.

As expected, Rodriguez will start what figures to be a bullpen game for the Giants. He has a 4.24 ERA, 1.24 WHIP and 18 strikeouts in 17 innings across five appearances this month.

Giants' Dereck Rodriguez: Likely starter Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Bruce Bochy mentioned Rodriguez as the likely starter in a bullpen game Sunday, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.

Madison Bumgarner had been lined up to start Sunday in the final game of Bochy's career, but Bochy announced late Friday that Bumgarner would not start again. "The game is not going to determine anything," the skipper said. "He's got a lot of baseball left and I'd like to take care of him." That opens the door for Rodriguez to step in for one more turn after he lost his rotation spot earlier this month. Expect Rodriguez to throw two or three innings before handing it over to the bullpen.

Giants' Dereck Rodriguez: Dropped from rotation
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez will pitch out of the bullpen moving forward, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.

Rodriguez owns a 4.93 ERA and 54:27 K:BB across 15 big-league starts (76.2 innings) this season. He'll be available out of the bullpen for the time being, though the right-hander could rejoin the rotation for a spot start next week in Boston. The Giants will start Tyler Beede, Madison Bumgarner and Johnny Cueto for their three-game series against the Marlins this weekend.

Giants' Dereck Rodriguez: Suffers ninth loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (5-9) took the loss against the Dodgers on Sunday, pitching 4.2 innings and giving up five runs (two earned) on three hits and three walks while striking out four.

Rodriguez struck out the side in the first frame and appeared on track for a successful outing while not allowing a hit through 3.2 innings before surrendering a walk and a homer with two outs in the fourth to give the Dodgers the lead. He then retired two of the first three hitters to begin the fifth, but an error kept the door open for another long ball -- this one a three-run shot by Corey Seager -- and Rodriguez's day was done after issuing a walk to the following batter. The 27-year-old owns a 5.09 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in 92 innings this season and will next face Miami on Friday.

Giants' Dereck Rodriguez: Drops pitchers' duel against Cards
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (5-8) took the loss Tuesday, allowing one run on five hits and a walk over seven innings while striking out seven as the Giants were downed 1-0 by the Cardinals.

The right-hander set a new season high in strikeouts while locked in a pitchers' duel with Jack Flaherty, but a hanging curveball in the sixth inning got deposited in the seats by Marcell Ozuna, and that was that. Rodriguez will carry a 5.15 ERA and 58:30 K:BB through 87.1 innings into his next start Sunday, on the road against the Dodgers.

Giants' Dereck Rodriguez: Knocked around by Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (5-7) took the loss against the Padres on Thursday, giving up five earned runs on eight hits over five innings, striking out three and walking one as the Giants fell 5-3.

Rodriguez was done in by the long ball in this one, as most of the damage against him came on a pair of two-run homers he gave up to Manuel Margot and Austin Hedges. After bursting onto the scene and putting up a 2.81 ERA over 118.1 innings last season, Rodriguez hasn't been able to put it together at the big-league level in 2019; this gives him a 5.26 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 89:36 K:BB over 75.1 innings.

Giants' Dereck Rodriguez: Struggles in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez did not factor into the decision during Wednesday's loss to the Cubs after lasting just four innings while surrendering six runs on six hits and three walks with a pair of strikeouts.

The right-hander had much to prove Wednesday and unfortunately couldn't quite get the job done during a sloppy performance. After getting promoted from Triple-A Sacramento for a spot start against the Diamondbacks last week, Rodriguez had delivered a strong outing to earn Wednesday's second chance in the rotation. With Shaun Anderson (finger) and Johnny Cueto (elbow) returning from the injured list sometime within the next few weeks, Rodriguez suddenly finds his starting status in jeopardy with Tyler Beede and Logan Webb also vying for spots. Through 22 appearances this season, Rodriguez owns a 5.26 ERA and 1.23 WHIP.

August 19, 2019 04:28 PM
Giants' Dereck Rodriguez: Awarded another start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez is slated to make his next start Wednesday against the Cubs, Mark Gonzales of the Chicago Tribune reports.

Rodriguez earned a second turn through the rotation after keeping the Diamondbacks off the board across seven three-hit frames last week, when he was summoned from Triple-A Sacramento for a spot start. The right-hander may need another respectable showing versus Chicago to build a case for sticking in the San Francisco rotation for the rest of the season. The Giants are expected to return Shaun Anderson (finger) and Johnny Cueto (elbow) from the injured list within the next couple of weeks, putting two of Rodriguez, Tyler Beede and Logan Webb at risk of losing their starting jobs.
