Rangers designated LHP Wandy Rodriguez for assignment.
Wandy was lit up for seven earned runs in just one inning of work Tuesday by the Yankees. The 36-year-old left-hander has shown promise at times this season, but it seems like he'll probably pass through waivers. He has a 4.90 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 86 1/3 innings. Jul 29 - 4:45 PM

Date:

Wandy Rodriguez is expected to start on Wednesday or Thursday against the Yankees.

Rodriguez was recently moved to the bullpen, although he's yet to make a relief appearance. The Rangers would like to trade him, but there might not be much interest given how inconsistent he's been of late.

According to T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com, the Rangers are fielding calls from parties interested in trading for Wandy Rodriguez.

While he certainly isn't the biggest fish on the market, he could make for a nice fallback option for a team that misses out on acquiring Cole Hamels or Johnny Cueto. The 36-year-old owns a 4.07 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 68/33 K/BB ratio across 84 innings for the Rangers this season.

Wandy Rodriguez held the Padres to one run over 5 1/3 innings Friday as part of a 4-3 victory.

It was his first win at home this season, which has been a house of horrors for him. Rodriguez held the Padres to just three hits while walking two batters and striking out five. The only damage against him was a solo homer from Melvin Upton, Jr. in his final inning of work. Nothing much was expected of Rodriguez coming into the year, but he's done a decent job as a rotation stopgap, posting a 4.07 ERA and 68/33 K/BB ratio in 84 innings over 15 starts.

FOX Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports that the Rangers could trade Wandy Rodriguez this month.

The club is due to get both Martin Perez (elbow) and Derek Holland (shoulder) back before long and they'll have to clear room in their rotation somehow. Rodriguez started out well with Texas but has stumbled of late and now holds a 4.23 ERA and 1.49 WHIP over 14 starts. It obviously wouldn't cost much to get him.
Jul 6 - 9:00 PM

Wandy Rodriguez gave up five runs in five innings Saturday in a loss to the Angels.

Rodriguez managed to survive the Orioles earlier in the week, but he's given up 28 hits and eight walks over 14 innings in his last three starts. The Rangers will stick with him, but AL-only leaguers don't have as much reason to do so.
Jul 5 - 1:21 AM

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.
