Fernando Rodney allowed a walk while striking out two batters in a scoreless ninth inning Tuesday against the Dodgers to secure his 26th save.

Rodney has settled back into a groove since a blown save in Los Angeles on July 6, posting 7 1/3 scoreless innings over his past eight appearances with a win, five saves, one hit allowed and 14 strikeouts.
Aug 9 - 1:55 AM

Fernando Rodney struck out two batters in a scoreless ninth inning to earn a save against the Cubs on Wednesday.

He induced a flyout from Kris Bryant, then punched out Anthony Rizzo and Kyle Schwarber to notch his 23rd save of the year. He has a shaky 4.93 ERA with 42 strikeouts and 18 walks in 34 2/3 innings on the season.
Aug 3 - 1:01 AM

Fernando Rodney allowed a hit but struck out the side in a non-save situation against the Cardinals on Thursday.

It's been tough times for Rodney owners of late, as the 40-year-old hasn't recorded a save since July 7. It's not his fault -- he's not blowing saves chances, they're just not being presented to him. On the year, Rodney is 4-3 with 22 saves, a 5.08 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 40/18 K/BB ratio.
Jul 27 - 11:55 PM

Fernando Rodney retired the only batter he faced Friday against the Reds to secure his 22nd save of the season.

Rodney cleaned up the mess made by Jake Barrett, as the tying run stepped to the plate in the top of the ninth inning with two away. Manager Torey Lovullo threw the veteran fireman right back into action after Rodney was pelted for four runs and four walks without retiring a batter in Los Angeles on Thursday night.
Jul 8 - 1:50 AM

Fernando Rodney retired the only two batters he faced on Saturday against the Rockies to record his 21st save of the season.

Rodney was tagged for eight earned runs and a pair of blown saves to close out the month of April. However, he has allowed just one unearned run in 19 1/3 innings over 20 appearances since April 29. The veteran right-hander continues to be hard on the opposition while endearing himself to his fantasy owners after a rocky start.
Jul 2 - 4:06 AM

Fernando Rodney slammed the door on the Phillies in the ninth inning on Friday, retiring all three hitters he faced in order to protect a one-run lead.

Rodney fanned one in his perfect inning of work. The 40-year-old right-hander continues to get the job done as the Diamondbacks' closer, successfully converting 19 of his 22 save chances on the season despite a troublesome 4.91 ERA and 1.21 WHIP.
Jun 16 - 10:32 PM

Fernando Rodney struck out the side in a perfect ninth inning to notch a save in 2-1 victory over the Tigers on Wednesday.

He retired the side in order by punching out Justin Upton, Nick Castellanos and Andrew Romine. His 5.11 ERA is ugly but he has 18 saves against only three blown saves. Rodney has not allowed an earned run since April 29th. He has fanned 27 batters in 24 2/3 frames on the season.
Jun 14 - 10:29 PM

Fernando Rodney worked around a walk in a scoreless ninth inning Saturday against the Brewers for his 16th save.

Rodney continues to pitch effectively after a bumpy stretch to close out April. He hasn't allowed an earned run over his past 12 2/3 innings across 13 appearances. The veteran has re-emerged as a must-start fantasy option across all formats, shaving his ERA down from 12.60 to 5.56 since April 29.
Jun 11 - 4:09 AM

Fernando Rodney struck out two in a scoreless inning of work Thursday, earning his 14th save against the Marlins.

A day after suffering his third blown save, Rodney worked a clean inning with two punchouts. The veteran right-hander stumbled at the end of April but was terrific in May and has started June off right as well. That bad two-game stretch has his ERA at 6.10, but Rodney has a strong hold on the closer's job and is second in the National League with his 14 saves.
Jun 1 - 11:16 PM

Fernando Rodney suffered his third blown save of the season Wednesday versus the Pirates.

Rodney walked the first two batters he faced and some shoddy defense on the Diamondbacks' infield allowed the tying run to score. Arizona would eventually win the game in 14 innings and Rodney had a very good May overall, so he's probably not in danger of losing his closer gig. JJ Hoover also blew a save opportunity on Wednesday in Pittsburgh when Jordy Mercer hit a game-tying solo homer off him in the bottom of the 11th.
May 31 - 7:04 PM

Fernando Rodney tossed a scoreless 10th inning Friday against the Brewers for his 13th save of the season.

Asked to hold a two-run lead, Rodney worked around a two-out single from Hernan Perez to secure the victory. The 40-year-old appeared on the verge of losing his closer job at the end of April, but he has allowed just two hits and three walks over 8 2/3 scoreless innings this month. He still holds an ugly 6.75 ERA, but he's second in the NL in saves.
May 27 - 12:33 AM

Fernando Rodney walked one in the ninth inning while recording his 12th save of the season in Wednesday's win over the White Sox.

Rodney entered proceedings with the Diamondbacks holding an 8-6 lead. While he did ultimately finish up with the save, it was not the cleanest of outings. Both of his first two outs came on hard hit, deep fly balls. With two outs, he then proceeded to walk Melky Cabrera to bring Jose Abreu -- at the time 4-for-4 with a two-run homer -- to the plate as the tying run. He managed to induce a groundout from Abreu to end the game without any run-scoring damage on his line. The veteran closer held a 12.60 ERA at the end of April, but has not surrendered a run in eight May appearances. He is 12-for-14 in save chances overall.
May 24 - 7:05 PM

Fernando Rodney worked a perfect ninth inning in Tuesday's game against the White Sox for his 11th save of the season.

Rodney worked a tidy 12-pitch frame for his seventh consecutive clean appearance of May. After a rough April with a 12.60 ERA and two blown saves he appears to have ironed out his issues and is a perfect 5-for-5 on save chances in May.
May 24 - 2:03 AM

Fernando Rodney tossed a 1-2-3 ninth inning to notch his 10th save in Tuesday's win over the Mets.

Of Rodney's 10 saves this season, half of them have been of the 1-2-3 variety. The closer hasn't given up a hit in five appearances yet this month, converting all three of his save opportunities.
