Wandy Rodriguez earned the win, limiting the Orioles to one run in five innings as the Rangers sealed an 8-1 victory on Monday.
Rodriguez was routed in his most recent start against the Athletics, so Monday's performance was a nice bounce-back effort. The lefty worked around eight hits and two walks with seven strikeouts. He'll carry a 3.91 ERA, a 1.43 WHIP, and a 61/28 K/BB ratio over 73 2/3 innings into a home start against the Angels next weekend. Jun 29 - 10:38 PM

Wandy Rodriguez was lit up for eight runs in four innings by the A's on Wednesday.

It's the first time in 12 starts this year that Rodriguez has allowed more than five runs and just the third time he's given up more than three. The Rangers had won each of his last six starts before dropping this one tonight. At least Rodriguez will miss the series in Toronto against the Blue Jays this weekend. However, his matchup against the Orioles in Baltimore next Tuesday isn't a favorable one for lefties, either.
Jun 24 - 11:17 PM

Wandy Rodriguez allowed three runs on nine hits over 5 1/3 innings in Wednesday's win over the Dodgers.

Rodriguez managed to keep the Dodgers off the scoreboard until the start of the sixth inning, when he allowed a two-run homer to Scott Van Slyke and an RBI single to Alex Guerrero. That push by the Dodgers made the score 4-3, but the Ranger bullpen was able to shut down the boys from California and help Rodriguez improve to 4-2 on the season. The veteran lefty holds a 3.20 ERA and 1.25 WHIP. He's not the sexiest name in fantasy, but the numbers speak for themselves. A home outing against the A's is up next on the schedule.
Jun 18 - 1:53 AM

Wandy Rodriguez took a no-decision Friday against the Twins after allowing one run over 6 2/3 innings.

Rodriguez gave up an RBI single to Trevor Plouffe in the top of the first inning, but he held the Twins off the board the rest of the way. Still, he didn't get enough support from his offense to get a win. The southpaw allowed just three hits while walking three and striking out six. Expectations were modest for the 36-year-old coming into the year, but he owns a quality 3.03 ERA and 49/21 K/BB ratio in 59 1/3 innings over 10 starts. He'll get the Dodgers next week on the road.
Jun 12 - 11:46 PM

Wandy Rodriguez delivered seven innings of one-run ball Saturday in the Rangers' 4-2 win over the Royals.

The only run he allowed came on a Mike Moustakas RBI single in the bottom of the sixth. Wandy scattered six hits over his seven strong frames, striking out four and walking none. The veteran left-hander will carry an impressive 3.25 ERA and 1.22 WHIP into his next scheduled start at home against the Twins.
Jun 6 - 5:13 PM

Wandy Rodriguez surrendered three runs (two earned) on nine hits over 5 2/3 innings in Sunday's no-decision against the Red Sox.

Over in Rodriguez's former home in Houston, John Danks hurled a 10-hit complete game shutout. Rodriguez couldn't quite manage that feat, as the Red Sox scored solitary runs in the first, second and sixth innings off of their nine hits. All things considered, Rodriguez limited the damage well enough. He struck out four without walking a batter in the contest and managed to improve his ERA to 3.55. His WHIP took a bit of damage and now stands at 1.27, but overall he's putting in a very solid season. He'll face the Royals on the road in what figures to be a tough start next time he takes the ball.
May 31 - 6:51 PM

Wandy Rodriguez was victimized by walks and homers Tuesday, allowing three runs over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision.

Rodriguez got off on the wrong foot, allowing solo homers to Jason Kipnis and Ryan Raburn in the first inning. He'd allowed just two home runs combined in his previous six starts. Rodriguez also walked five and gave up four hits in the outing, striking out six. The southpaw remains 2-2 with a 3.60 ERA on the year. Wandy will face the Red Sox on Sunday.
May 26 - 11:57 PM

Wandy Rodriguez pitched 6 2/3 innings of one-run ball Thursday in a win over the Red Sox.

Rodriguez struck out five and walked two. He's allowed exactly one run in four of his six starts for the Rangers, going 2-2 with a 3.38 ERA overall. Mixed leaguers could take a chance on him next week for his starts in Cleveland and at home against Boston. The Indians lineup is mostly left-handed, and the Red Sox aren't hitting lefties at all.
May 21 - 10:13 PM

Wandy Rodriguez took the loss Friday after giving up five runs over 4 2/3 innings against the Indians.

Rodriguez was great in his previous two starts, but he just didn't have it on this night, allowing eight hits and a walk while also hitting a batter. He was pulled at 101 pitches in the fifth inning. The 36-year-old still owns a respectable 3.86 ERA through five starts this season, but an outing like Friday shows why it's difficult to trust him in most fantasy formats.
May 16 - 12:41 AM

Wandy Rodriguez was solid in a win against the Rays on Sunday, giving up only one run in six innings of work.

Before Tim Beckham led off the sixth inning with a single, Rodriguez had set down 34 consecutive batters dating back to his previous start, a Rangers record. Beckham's hit ended up leading to the Rays' only run. Rodriguez gave up only two hits in total while walking one and striking out six. It's only been four starts, but the Rangers have to like what they've seen from the lefty thus far, as he boasts a 2.70 ERA, a 1.07 WHIP, and a 22/10 K/BB ratio in 23 1/3 innings. Rodriguez will look to keep it going in his next start at home against the Indians.
May 10 - 4:33 PM

Wandy Rodriguez tossed eight strong innings, striking out eight while allowing one run, in the Rangers' 7-1 win over the Astros on Tuesday.

Wandy gave up just three hits on the night, with one of those being a Luis Valbuena solo homer. The southpaw also struck out eight while walking just one. It was easily the best of his three starts thus far and showed that he's still got a little bit left in the tank after the Rangers picked him up off the scrap heap. Rodriguez will square off with the Rays in Tampa on Sunday.
May 5 - 11:20 PM

Wandy Rodriguez gave up four runs in 4 1/3 innings Wednesday in a loss to the Mariners.

Rodriguez walked five and committed one of the Rangers' four errors on the night. It's pretty much impossible to be that sloppy and beat Felix Hernandez. Rodriguez should remain in the rotation, but we're not fond of him in AL-only leagues.
Apr 29 - 11:35 PM

Wandy Rodriguez yielded one run in five innings Friday against the Angels in his Rangers debut.

Rodriguez struck out five, but he also walked three, hit a batter and threw two wild pitches. It was still a mildly encouraging outing, but given that he's working for a bad team in a tough park for pitchers, he doesn't seem like a good bet in AL-only leagues.
Apr 25 - 1:21 AM

Rangers purchased the contract of LHP Wandy Rodriguez from Triple-A Round Rock.

Rodriguez will make his Rangers debut with a start against the Angels on Friday. The 36-year-old posted a 6.75 ERA and 1.69 WHIP over 26 2/3 innings with the Pirates in 2014. Though he looked strong in spring training, he's unlikely to make an impact in mixed leagues, especially pitching half of his games in Arlington.
Apr 24 - 7:03 PM

Wandy Rodriguez will start for the Rangers against the Angels on Friday.

Rodriguez was released by the Braves in early April and the Rangers signed him to a minor league contract a few days later. Rodriguez has struck out 10 over seven innings in two starts thus far. He'll have to be added to the team's 40-man roster prior to the start.
