Rodney recorded his 25th save of the season Wednesday, loading the bases on a walk and a pair of singles before retiring the final batter.

EDGE Analysis

Rodney entered the ninth with a 3-0 lead, so Royals third baseman Christian Colon represented the winning running when he stepped in to face Rodney with two outs and the bases loaded. Rodney escaped by inducing a line out to the shortstop, keeping his ERA at 2.17. Rodney has now converted eight straight save opportunities for the Marlins, although Wednesday was one of the most nerve-provoking.

Rodney walked one and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning Sunday against the Pirates to notch his 24th save of the season.

EDGE Analysis

A.J. Ramos worked a perfect eighth inning Sunday in his first action since coming off the DL, so this may end up being Rodney's last save opportunity for a while. The 39-year-old has been typically volatile since joining the Marlins, posting a 4.44 ERA and 26:15 K:BB in 24.1 innings, but Rodney should return to setup duties once Ramos is reinstated as closer.

Rodney notched his 23rd save in Saturday's 3-1 victory over the Pirates, firing a scoreless ninth inning in which he also struck out two.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran closer keeps rolling along, now having successfully converted his last six save opportunities. Rodney also has scoreless outings in seven of his last eight appearances, and now sports a solid 2.25 ERA and 1.15 WHIP on the season.

Rodney notched his 22nd save in Friday's 6-5 victory over the Pirates, allowing one hit and two walks in a scoreless ninth inning.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran closer labored a bit through a 21-pitch ninth inning but was able to ultimately escape with the save. Rodney gave up a leadoff walk to Jody Mercer and single to John Jaso, before inducing a groundout from Josh Harrison and a game-ending double play from Andrew McCutchen following an intentional walk of Starling Marte. The 39-year-old reliever now has converted five straight save opportunities.

Rodney struck out two and walked one in a strong ninth inning to earn his 21st save in Monday's 6-3 win over the Reds.

EDGE Analysis

Rodney entered with a comfortable three-run lead, which allowed him not to panic after a lead-off walk to Zack Cozart. He faced no problems with the next three batters, which should come as a relief after the 39-year-old gave up a home run among four hits in his previous appearance.

Rodney gave up four hits including a Tim Anderson solo home run Sunday but was still able to come away with his 20th save of the season in a 5-4 win over the White Sox.

EDGE Analysis

It took a great throw from Christian Yelich in left field to nail Carlos Sanchez at the plate on the final play of the game to get Rodney the save, but the Marlins will take it. The bad version of Rodney has returned in August, as he has a 7.11 ERA and 4:4 K:BB in 6.1 innings over seven appearances, but with A.J. Ramos (finger) sidelined the team doesn't have many other options for the ninth inning.

Rodney threw a perfrect ninth inning Tuesday against the Giants, striking out one to preserve a 2-0 lead.

EDGE Analysis

The save was Rodney's 19th of the season but just second as a Marlin, as A.J. Ramos remained the Miami closer after Rodney was sent over from San Diego. But Ramos landed on the 15-Day DL on Tuesday (retroactive to August 6th) with a broken finger, paving the way for Rodney to see some more save opportunities. Rodney hasn't been as effective since joining Miami, raising his ERA from 0.31 to 2.30 since joining the club. Still, Rodney's fantasy value greatly increases with Ramos out, as he should be the full-time closer until Ramos returns.

Rodney pitched a clean ninth inning Sunday at the Rockies to earn his first save since being acquired by the Marlins.

EDGE Analysis

The veteran had really struggled to the tune of eight earned runs against in his previous 6.1 innings, but he took care of the side on just 14 pitches Sunday. Despite Sunday's development, A.J. Ramos should get the nod in the majority of save situations moving forward, leaving Rodney as a mere setup option for the club.

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.
