The Dodgers will not carry Paco Rodriguez and Chris Capuano on their NLCS roster.

The Dodgers have decided to use Edinson Volquez as their long man instead of Capuano. Rodriguez being left off the roster is definitely a surprise, as he boasts a 2.21 ERA and 10.2 K.9 rate in his first 87 big league appearances. J.P. Howell will be busy out of the club's bullpen.

Paco Rodriguez was perfect for two innings Monday and picked up a save against the Cardinals with Kenley Jansen unavailable.

Rodriguez came in after Ronald Belisario hit David Freese with a pitch to begin the eighth. He got Jon Jay to pop up a bunt and then induced a double-play ball from Tony Cruz before pitching a flawless ninth. It was his second save, the other coming in June in relief of a struggling Brandon League. He'll continue to be used as a lefty specialist for the most part, but he's just fine against righties, too.

Paco Rodriguez pitched out of a Brandon League jam to earn his first career save Tuesday against the Giants.

With Kenley Jansen needed the night off, League came into a 6-3 game and gave up a bloop single, an RBI double and a single before being pulled. Rodriguez took over then and allowed an RBI single, but he was able to retire three in a row after that. The last out came on Marco Scutaro's shot to deep center, which was hauled in by a running Matt Kemp.

Dodgers manager Don Mattingly suggested on Saturday that Paco Rodriguez could be used in more high-leverage situations.

Rodriguez has been a middle reliever to this point, but the Dodgers could ask him to take on a late-inning role to help fix their bullpen struggles. "The way Paco is going, he’s a guy we’re really going to have to take a look," Mattingly said. "You hate to just jump ship on that and give up on guys. But he’s working his way more to that role."

Dodgers purchased the contract of LHP Steven Rodriguez from Double-A Chattanooga.

A second-round pick this past June, the 21-year-old southpaw has skyrocketed through the Dodgers' farm system. Rodriguez will operate as a middle reliever.
