Diamondbacks signed RHP Henry Rodriguez to a minor league contract.
Rodriguez was released by two different teams (Marlins, White Sox) in 2014. His fastball can hit 100 mph, but the 27-year-old right-hander has always struggled with command. He owns a 6.4 BB/9 in 150 1/3 career innings at the major league level. Thu, Jan 22, 2015 01:23:00 PM

White Sox released RHP Henry Rodriguez.

Rodriguez held a 21.60 ERA while walking eight over just 1 2/3 innings with Triple-A Charlotte after signing a minor league deal last month. He'll get another chance somewhere with his high-90s velocity, but Rodriguez is a long shot at this point to make it back to the majors this season.

White Sox signed RHP Henry Rodriguez to a minor league contract.

The 27-year-old right-hander was released by the Marlins earlier in the week. While he has terrific stuff, he has been unable to harness his command, as evidenced by his 41/38 K/BB ratio over 25 1/3 innings at Triple-A New Orleans this season. He'll serve as organizational bullpen depth for the White Sox.

Marlins purchased the contract of RHP Henry Rodriguez from Triple-A New Orleans.

He's replacing Carlos Marmol, who was designated for assignment. Rodriguez posted a 3.26 ERA and struck out 37 over 19 1/3 innings at New Orleans, but he also walked 23. He won't be used in high-leverage situations.

Henry Rodriguez has accepted an assignment to Triple-A New Orleans.

Rodriguez failed to earn a spot in Miami's bullpen this spring after allowing six runs over nine innings of work. However, it wouldn't be surprising if the hard-throwing right-hander eventually found his way to the big club.

Marlins reassigned RHP Henry Rodriguez, INF Austin Nola, OF Matt Angle, INF Juan Diaz, and RHP Chris Hatcher to minor league camp.

Henry Rodriguez struck out three in two hitless innings of relief against the Mets on Monday.

After a dismal 2013 with the Nationals and Cubs, the hard-throwing Rodriguez is making a run at a spot in the Marlins pen this spring. He's struck out six and walked one while allowing one run in four innings so far. Since he is on a minor league deal, the most likely scenario has him headed to Triple-A for a bit. However, he could be the first reliever called up by the team.

Henry Rodriguez is expected to report to Marlins' camp on Sunday.

Henry Rodriguez has yet to report to Marlins' camp due to visa issues.

Fellow non-roster reliever Jesus Sanchez is already dealing with visa problems. Rodriguez is coming off a disappointing season that saw him designated for assignment twice, but he'll have a good shot to crack the Opening Day bullpen if he can get his visa issue sorted out soon.

Marlins signed RHP Henry Rodriguez to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.
