Rodney collected his 10th save of the year Wednesday against Baltimore despite giving up three hits and a run.

He did manage two strikeouts, but this is now four times in five outings that Rodney has given up a run. He's 10-for-11 on save chances, but that won't last long if he keeps pitching this way.

Rodney (1-2) gave up a walk, a hit, and a run in one inning to pick up the loss against the Red Sox on Thursday.

Rodney entered the game in a non-save situation, with the game tied at one run apiece. He gave up a leadoff double to Brock Holt, who scored on Mookie Betts' sac fly after Xander Bogaerts sacrificed Holt to third. Rodney has raised his ERA to 5.65, but he'll continue to serve his role as the Mariners closer, as he is 9-for-10 in save opportunities this season.

Rodney gave up a ninth-inning home run to Stephen Vogt on Sunday, but was still able to pick up his ninth save of the season, striking out one during his inning of work.

The bumpy ride continues for Rodney, who now sports a hefty 5.40 ERA this season. He has given up a run in each of his last two save opportunities, but has gotten the job done nonetheless. He had been much better of late though, and still appears to have a firm grip on the closer's role in Seattle.

Rodney picked up his eighth save of the season, but gave up another earned run off a home run.

Rodney has had save opportunities this season, but his numbers are dreadful, posting an ERA of 5.56, a WHIP of 1.68 and a FIP of 4.26. Still, he's 8-for-9 in save situations this season.

Rodney is unlikely to pitch in Thursday's game against the Astros, Bob Dutton of the Tacoma News Tribune reports.

Rodney has pitched each of the last four days, picking up three saves and five strikeouts over four scoreless innings. He's already put in a full week's worth of work for owners, but he may get to pad his numbers Saturday and/or Sunday. It would be shocking if the Mariners used him for a fifth straight day Friday night. Should a save opportunity arise, the M's will likely turn to Danny Farquhar or Carson Smith.

Rodney struck out one and pitched a perfect ninth Wednesday against the Rangers for his seventh save of the season.

Rodney is now seven-for-eight in save opportunities. He saved all three games as the Mariners swept the series against the Rangers for their first three-game winning streak this season. Rodney has pitched in four straight games, and manager Lloyd McClendon has implied that the Mariners will try to stay away from him to allow him to rest and recover.

Rodney breezed through the ninth inning, striking out a pair on his way to his sixth save, as Seattle downed the Rangers 2-1 on Tuesday night.

Famous for making things interesting, that wasn't the case in this one as Rodney needed just 10 pitches (seven for strikes) to retire the Rangers in order. He struck out the first two hitters he faced and then induced Rougned Odor to pop out to end it. Having thrown 39 pitches over the previous two days, he needed an efficient outing, but his availability is in question for Wednesday. If they opt to rest him, Danny Farquhar would probably get the call in a save situation.

Rodney tossed a scoreless inning Monday nigh to record his fifth save of the season.

He allowed a hit and walked a batter, but managed to make it through the 19-pitch frame without surrendering a run. Rodney has turned in five straight scoreless appearances after getting knocked around for his only blown save of the season in a matchup with the Dodgers on April 14.

Rodney pitched a perfect ninth inning Saturday with one strikeout for his third save of the season.

Rodney had a couple of rough outings, including a blown save, but he had no such problems Saturday. Considering his penchant for putting runners on, Rodney was fortunate to only blow three saves last year. He probably won't be as fortunate this year, but he'll still be a dependable fantasy closer.

Rodney blew a save Tuesday night, giving up two runs on three hits and a walk while recording just one out against the Dodgers.

Called upon to protect to a one-run lead, Rodney gave up back-to-back singles to Justin Turner and Jimmy Rollins to put men on first and third with nobody out in the bottom of the ninth. It looked like Rodney may actually get out of the jam, as Carl Crawford grounded to third and the Mariners got Turner on a force play at home plate, but Rodney then walked Adrian Gonzalez and gave up another single to Howie Kendrick to blow his first save of the year. Rodney has now given up six runs in his last two appearances. Those chasing saves may want to give Danny Farquhar some thought as a speculative add.
