Rodney picked up the win Friday, pitching a perfect eighth inning against the Cardinals.

EDGE Analysis

Rodney shut down the Cardinals in the bottom of the eighth after his team grabbed a one run lead in the top of the frame. Though his Marlins career started off with a couple of rocky outings, Rodney has picked up two holds and a win in his last three appearances while allowing just one hit over three scoreless innings. He'll continue to combine with A.J. Ramos to give the Marlins a dominant late-inning combination.

Rodney struck out one and picked up his second hold of the season with a scoreless eighth inning in Friday's win over the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

After a couple of shaky outings, Rodney combined with closer A.J. Ramos for a pair of perfect innings to protect the win for ace Jose Fernandez. Friday represents exactly the type of dominant late-inning effort the Marlin's front office was hoping for when acquiring the veteran reliever a couple weeks back. Unfortunately for his fantasy owners, Rodney is unlikely to see more than some stray save opportunities while Ramos remains healthy and effective.

Rodney allowed a solo home run during the eighth inning of Tuesday's win over the Mets.

EDGE Analysis

Rodney also had a rough outing on Monday, picking up the loss, and has allowed three earned runs over his first four innings in Miami after allowing just one earned run in 24 appearances (24.2 innings pitched) for San Diego to open the season. He's struggled with his command lately, walking five batters in his last 7.1 innings pitched. Rodney could face competition for the eighth inning job from displaced setup man David Phelps if he continues to struggle.

Rodney is expected to be Miami's set up man, Joe Frisaro of MLB.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

With A.J. Ramos handling closing duties effectively (24 saves, 1.74 ERA) Rodney will find his role as the eighth inning man in Miami's bullpen. However, when Ramos is unavailable, Rodney would presumably be next in line for save opportunities given he only gave up one earned run over 28.2, largely end of the game, innings with San Diego this season. With Rodney's acquisition, the Marlins now have two sub-two ERA closers, giving them one of the most formidable bullpens in the National League.

Rodney was traded to the Marlins on Thursday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rodney has been terrific so far this season, going a perfect 17-for-17 in save opportunities while sporting a stellar 0.31 ERA with 33 strikeouts in 28.2 innings. The change of scenery could diminish some of his fantasy value, beyond just the move out of the pitcher-friendly San Diego, as he'll likely slot behind A.J. Ramos -- who has been nearly as effective in closing out games this season -- in the Miami bullpen, so Rodney may be reduced to more of a set-up role in his new home. The Padres will receive minor leaguer Chris Paddack in return for the 39-year-old.

Rodney retired the Reds in order, striking out two batters, to earn his 17th save Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

He threw nine of his 13 pitches for strikes, and after punching out Joey Votto and Brandon Phillips, Rodney was able to get Jay Bruce to line out to first. Rodney has four strikeouts in two innings against the Reds in this series. Although he is 0-1, Rodney is 17-for-17 in save chances with a 0.31 ERA, 0.87 WHIP and 33 strikeouts in 28.2 innings this season.

Rodney struck out a pair of Reds and walked one during a scoreless ninth for his 16th save Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

After giving up his first earned run of while season while recording a save Tuesday, Rodney bounced back while still showing off the swing-and-miss stuff he's been flashing lately. The Padres' closer has whiffed an impressive 10 batters in his last 4.1 innings.

Rodney picked up his a four-out save despite allowing a run on two hits in Tuesday's win over Baltimore.

EDGE Analysis

Rodney got out of a bases loaded jam with two outs in the eighth inning and a one-run lead, and the only run he gave up was a meaningless one on an infield single after the Padres gave him three runs to work with in the top of the ninth. He is now 15-for-15 in save opportunities and has a 0.34 ERA, performance reminiscent of his amazing 2012 run with Tampa Bay (0.60 ERA, 48 saves).

Rodney struck out the side in the ninth inning to earn his 14th save Sunday against the Nationals.

EDGE Analysis

Rodney was protecting a three-run lead, and closed the door without allowing a baserunner. He continues to be absolutely unstoppable, as he's yet to allow a run this year while striking out 27 hitters in 25.1 innings of work.

Rodney worked around one walk with two strikeouts in 1.1 innings to earn his 11th save of the season Saturday versus the Rockies.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran became notorious for his inconsistency in prior seasons, but he is in the midst of an excellent year for San Diego, as he has still yet to allow an earned run through 21.1 innings and is perfect in save situations. A potential trade could put a damper on Rodney's fantasy value down the road, but he should continue serving as a solid fantasy reliever in the meantime.
