Aneury Rodriguez has agreed to a contract with the Samsung Lions of the Korean Baseball Organization.
Rodriguez had an ugly 6.60 ERA and 1.88 WHIP in 92 2/3 innings this past season at Triple-A Oklahoma City -- an affiliate of the Astros. The 25-year-old would have had to settle for a minor league deal state-side. Mon, Dec 17, 2012 08:13:00 PM

Astros sent RHP Aneury Rodriguez outright to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

Rodriguez allowed just two earned runs in a spot start for the Astros earlier this season, but he probably won't get another look in the big leagues this summer.

Aneury Rodriguez pitched well in his season debut against the Marlins on Tuesday, allowing just two runs on two hits over six innings of work.

Rodriguez struck out six and walked two in the game. His stamina still isn't where it needs to be, as he was limited to just 78 pitches on Tuesday, but he may have done enough to earn another start down the road. The right-hander was optioned back to the minors after Tuesday's game.

Aneury Rodriguez is expected to be recalled to start for the Astros against the Marlins on Tuesday.

The spot in the rotation had previously belonged to the now-injured Kyle Weiland. This will likely be a one-time thing for Rodriguez, but there's always a chance he could make a favorable impression by pitching well and manage to stick around.

Astros optioned RHP Aneury Rodriguez to Triple-A Oklahoma City.

The former Rule 5 pick was knocked around this spring with a 9.53 ERA. He should be back up at some point this season in a long relief role.

Aneury Rodriguez has been moved to the bullpen.

The Astros are going to keep 20-year-old Jordan Lyles in the starting rotation instead. Rodriguez is a decent young talent, but he has registered a 5.80 ERA and an 0-4 record as a starter this year. The 23-year-old Dominican right-hander will try for better in long relief.

Aneury Rodriguez surrendered six runs -- four earned -- in four innings Monday in a no-decision against the Cubs.

Rodriguez pitched well in three of his previous five starts for the Astros, but as little upside as he has -- particularly while pitching for such a poor team -- he's not recommended in NL-only leagues.

Aneury Rodriguez pitched six innings and allowed one run Wednesday against the Dodgers.

Rodriguez struck out a career-high five. He's pitched well in three of his five starts for the Astros, but he doesn't have any wins to show for it. NL-only leaguers should continue to shy away.

Aneury Rodriguez allowed just two runs but permitted eight hits and walked one over 5 1.3 innings in Friday's 5-2 win over the Blue Jays.

Rodriguez didn't pick up his first win, as the 'Stros scored all five of their runs in the last two innings. It was a notably improved effort from the young right-hander, but he's still failing to go very deep at all into games and has been quite hittable, giving up 21 hits over 15 1/3 innings in his last three starts. He'll face the Dodgers the next time out.

Aneury Rodriguez was ineffective again on Sunday, allowing seven runs (five earned) on five hits and four walks in just five innings of Houston's loss to the Mets.

Rodriguez struck out two in watching his already ugly 5.50 ERA balloon to 6.26. A Rule 5 pick-up, Rodriguez better show the Astros something in his next start (if he gets one) if he doesn't want to find himself back in the minor leagues.

Pitching against the Reds on Monday, Aneury Rodriguez didn't fare as well in his second major-league start as he did in his first, as he allowed five runs on eight hits in just five innings of work in an Astros loss.

He struck out three and walked one. His biggest mistake came in the third inning, where he allowed his pitching counterpart Travis Wood to take him deep for a three-run homer. There's no telling how he will look in his third start, which should come on Sunday against the Mets.

Making his first major league start, Rule 5 pick Aneury Rodriguez allowed one hit over five scoreless innings Wednesday against the Reds.

Rodriguez's stuff is middling and he entered today's game having allowed nine runs -- six earned -- in eight innings out of the pen, so don't rush to pick him up in NL-only leagues. We doubt he'll have any lasting fantasy value.

Aneury Rodriguez has had his suspension reduced from three games to two.

He'll sit out Sunday and Tuesday. Rodriguez was given the suspension for throwing at the Marlins' Gaby Sanchez in last Sunday's game.

MLB suspended Aneury Rodriguez for three games and Astros manager Brad Mills for one game for their actions during Sunday's game against the Marlins.

The Astros and Marlins had a bit of beanball war during Sunday's game and Rodriguez was ejected after throwing at Gaby Sanchez in the ninth inning. Mills will serve his suspension Tuesday while Rodriguez has appealed.
Tue, Apr 12, 2011 04:51:00 PM

Aneury Rodriguez is now being considered for a spot in the Astros' Opening Day bullpen.

The 23-year-old Rule 5 Draft pick entered camp in the running for a rotation spot, but Nelson Figueora beat him out. Rodriguez posted a 2.06 ERA over 43 2/3 innings in the Dominican Winter League this offseason and would probably do quite well in a middle relief role for Houston.
