Orioles' Wandy Rodriguez: Opts out of minor league contract
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez opted out of a minor league deal with Baltimore on Wednesday, Roch Kubatko of MASNsports.com reports.

Rodriguez signed a minor league contract with the Orioles in April but never took the hill for an affiliate. With 1,500 major league innings pitched under his belt, it seems likely the veteran lefty will get picked up by another organization in need of pitching depth, although he'll likely have to settle for another minor league deal.

Orioles' Wandy Rodriguez: Signs minor-league deal with Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez agreed to a minor-league contract with the Orioles on Friday, Rock Kubatko of MASN reports.

Rodriguez has been out of work since being released by the Astros in early April, but he will join an Orioles team that is looking for some starting pitching depth in the minors. He started 15 games for the Rangers last season and has 263 major league starts under his belt, so the Orioles could decide to call him up if a spot opens up in the big league rotation.

Astros' Wandy Rodriguez: Fails to make Astros roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez has been informed he will not make the Astros' Opening Day roster, Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Rodriguez has not been released by the Astros yet, but he will likely exercise an opt-out clause in his contract. Rodriguez had a 4.90 ERA in 86.1 innings for the Rangers and last posted an ERA below 4.00 in 2013. We'll see if there are any teams out there that still believe he has any magic left, but there's usually some team out there that could use another veteran arm.

Astros' Wandy Rodriguez: Competing for final roster spot
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager AJ Hinch said that Rodriguez is in consideration for the final roster spot, Howard Chen of CSN Houston reports.

The other two competitors for the spot are James Hoyt and Michael Feliz. The left-hander has been solid this spring, posting a 0.92 WHIP and allowing only six runs in 13 spring innings, which could help him garner the last spot on the Astros roster.

Astros' Wandy Rodriguez: Decision looming on roster status
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Houston will have to make a decision whether Rodriguez will make the Opening Day roster by the end of the week, as the opt-out date of his minor league deal is approaching, Evan Drellich of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Rodriguez allowed one run on two hits with no walks and five strikeouts over four Grapefruit League innings Sunday against the Phillies, improving his spring ERA to 2.25 in four appearances (two starts). The 37-year-old has been impressive, but so have other southpaws Kevin Chapman (0.00 spring ERA), Edwar Cabrera (1.69) and Neil Cotts (3.38), all of whom are competing for a roster spot with the Astros.

Astros' Wandy Rodriguez: Sharp against St. Louis on Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez retired six of the seven batters he faced Friday - including four via strikeout - to earn a Grapefruit League win against St. Louis.

"Today, guys, I used a lot of my fastball and tried to locate it," Rodriguez said. "I used only two or three curveballs today, but threw a lot of fastballs and changeups." The veteran southpaw is back with the team he made his big league debut with in 2005, but he'll need to string together several performances like this one to make the Astros' Opening Day roster.

Astros' Wandy Rodriguez: Will start Friday against St. Louis
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez will start the Astros' second Grapefruit League contest Friday against St. Louis, Jose de Jesus Ortiz of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The 37-year-old southpaw will need a standout camp with the Astros to make the Opening Day roster, as Dallas Keuchel, Lance McCullers, Collin McHugh, Scott Feldman and Doug Fister are the favorites to open 2016 in Houston's starting rotation. There's also Mike Fiers, who made 30 starts between Milwaukee and Houston last year. Rodriguez made 17 appearances (15 starts) with Texas last season, going 4-3 with an unimpressive 4.61 ERA and 1.40 WHIP over 86.1 innings.

Astros' Wandy Rodriguez: Rejoining former team
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez will rejoin the Astros on a minor league contract, MLB.com's Brian McTaggart reports.

Rodriguez previously played for the Astros from 2005 to 2012, making 227 of his 275 career appearances for the organization that he originally came up with. He's no lock to make the Opening Day roster, as the team has obviously made a ton of progress since the lefty was traded as part of a rebuild. The 37-year-old Rodriguez will likely just provide depth in case the Houston rotation suffers a string of injuries, but his contract does include an invitation to big-league spring training, according to ESPN's Enrique Rojas.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBS Sports Staff

The Rangers released pitcher Wandy Rodriguez on Tuesday. Rodriguez, who was removed from the rotation in mid-July, went 6-4 with a 4.90 ERA in 17 outings (15 starts) before being placed on waivers.

SP Wandy Rodriguez receives DFA tag from Rangers
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Rangers have designated veteran starter Wandy Rodriguez for assignment, per MLBRosterMoves.com.

The finals straw was a miserable outing Tuesday in which he allowed seven earned runs on six hits and three walks in one inning. That performance sent his ERA skyrocketing from 4.22 to 4.90.

The 36 year old performed well through mid-June, but has since given up 24 runs in 21 2/3 innings.

Rangers may give Wandy Rodriguez another start this week
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Rangers pitcher Wandy Rodriguez was moved to the bullpen this week, but he may be making a return to the starting rotation. 

Rodriguez is likely to start either Wednesday or Thursday, against the Yankees, per the Fort Worth Star Telegram

The decision hasn't been finalized yet. The team is waiting to see if Rodriguez is needed in long relief in Sunday's game.

Rangers moving Wandy Rodriguez to bullpen
by Michael Hurcomb | CBS Sports Staff

Rangers starting pitcher Wandy Rodriguez is being moved to the bullpen with Nick Martinez set to rejoin the rotation Monday against the Rockies, according to MLB.com.

"Right now, Wandy is going to pitch out of the bullpen," Rangers manager Jeff Banister said. "We want to get Nick back into play. We wanted to give him a chance to freshen up, now we're going to get him back up here.

"We've got (Matt) Harrison in the rotation, we need to get him back on a regular routine. We want to get Martin Perez on a regular routine. Unplugging Wandy out of the rotation and using him in the bullpen, we felt he was the best guy to go. We can replug him into the rotation."

Rodriguez has made just 10 relief appearances in his 11-year MLB career.

Wandy Rodriguez wins sixth game of year for Rangers
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Rangers starter Wandy Rodriguez won for the second time in three starts, Friday, against San Diego. 

Rodriguez improved to 6-4 by allowing one run in 5 1/3 innings. It's the fifth straight start that Rodriguez hasn't lasted at least six innings. He's 3-2 over that span. 

Rodriguez allowed three hits, his fewest since June 12. He walked two and struck out five.

Report: Rangers seeking to unload SP Wandy Rodriguez
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Rangers are receiving some feelers in their openness to trade starting pitcher Wandy Rodriguez, per Fox Sports, which is claiming he could be gone in the next few weeks.

The team is seeking a trade that would allow them to bring in a top-of-the-line pitcher for its rotation in an attempt to remain in playoff contention.

Rodriguez could fetch a fair price, but his recent performances aren't driving up his value. He has allowed 19 runs in his last 19 1/3 innings pitched and hasn't managed a quality start in his last four outings.

His ERA has soared from 3.03 to 4.23.

Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez suffers loss in rout on Saturday
by Jason Lempert | CBS Sports Staff

Rangers left-hander Wandy Rodriguez has a rough start against the Angels on Saturday. Rodriguez allowed five runs on nine hits over five innings. He walked three and struck two, as the Angels took the 13-0 win. 

Rodriguez (5-4) brought his ERA up to 4.23 with the poor outing. He gave up three runs in the second inning and another in the third before allowing a solo home run to Kole Calhoun in the fifth.

The veteran southpaw has now given up 14 earned runs over 14 innings in his last three starts.

Rangers P Wandy Rodriguez rebounds with solid performance
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Rangers pitcher Wandy Rodriguez gave up one earned run in Monday night's 8-1 win over the Orioles. 

Rodriguez rebounded from his previous start that saw him allow eight runs on June 24. This time around, Rodriguez still allowed eight hits but only walked two batters and struck out seven. 

Rodriguez ended a two-game skid that saw him surrender 11 runs. 

He now has an ERA of 3.91 this season.

Rangers P Wandy Rodriguez gives up 8 runs in loss
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Rangers pitcher Wandy Rodriguez had a rough night, allowing eight earned runs in Wednesday night's 8-2 loss to the Athletics. 

From the beginning, Rodriguez was off. He gave up all eight runs in the first two innings, surrendering five in the first frame. Rodriguez, who went four innings, was tagged for 11 hits, walked three batters and struck out four. 

“Before tonight I felt like Wandy competed very well, gave us competitive outings, moved the fastball around, used the breaking ball, really veteran outings for us,” manager Jeff Banister said, via the Dallas Morning News. “He got the outs when he needed to, was able to maneuver the ball around and pitched well. This is the first time he’s thrown a shoe really. Tough one. We’ll move on from it, play tomorrow, and I’m sure Wandy, he’ll erase this one from his memory bank. If I know him well, he’ll figure out what went wrong and move on.”

This was by far Rodriguez's worst outing of the season. He entered the game with a 2.37 ERA in his past three starts. 

Rodriguez fell to 4-3 record wise and has a 4.06 ERA.

Rangers' Wandy Rodriguez gives up nine hits, gets win Wednesday
by Jason Lempert | CBS Sports Staff

Rangers left-hander Wandy Rodriguez picked up his fourth win of the season in the 5-3 victory over the Dodgers on Wednesday. Rodriguez pitched 5 2/3 innings, allowing three runs on nine hits. He walked two and struck out one, but still managed to escape with the win.

The big blow against Rodriguez came on a two-run home run by Scott Van Slyke in the sixth inning. Rodriguez allowed a double to the next batter before getting the hook.

Though he's given up 27 hits over his last three starts, he's managed to allow just seven earned runs over that span, leaving him with a cool 3.20 ERA on the season.

He's scheduled to make his next start on Tuesday at home against the A's.

Rangers' bullpen leaves Wandy Rodriguez with no-decision
by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Rangers starter Wandy Rodriguez gave up a run in 6 2/3 innings and left with the lead on Friday. The Rangers' bullpen gave up the lead, however, leaving Rodriguez with a no-decision.

Rodriguez gave up three hits and walked three batters while striking out six.  

Rodriguez's next start is Wednesday, at Los Angeles.

Rangers SP Wandy Rodriguez picks up win in solid effort Saturday
by Jason Lempert | CBS Sports Staff

Rangers pitcher Wandy Rodriguez was excellent in his start against the Royals on Saturday. Rodriguez allowed one run on six hits, striking out four and walking none over seven innings in the 4-2 victory. The veteran left-hander needed just 97 pitches to make it through the seventh.

Rodriguez (3-2, 3.25 ERA) gave up his only run on an RBI single from Mike Moustakas in the sixth inning on Saturday. 

This was the first time since May 5 that Rodriguez was able to get through seven innings, but he's been mostly effective all season.

"Stabilizer," Rangers manager Jeff Banister said, per MLB.com. "He has taken on a front end of the rotation type of attitude, shouldering a lot of innings and being a veteran presence. He is a guy who has been through a lot of battles and significant games."

He's scheduled to make his next start on Friday at home against the Twins.
