Rodriguez picked up the win Friday, allowing one run on three hits with two walks while striking out five in 5.1 innings against the Padres.

Rodriguez was effective but not especially efficient, throwing 57 of 91 pitches for strikes before being removed in the sixth inning. That's now five straight starts in which Rodriguez has failed to complete six innings, yet the 36-year-old is 3-2 over that span. The lefty ends the unofficial first half with a 4.07 ERA and 1.45 WHIP.

Rodriguez struck out seven and walked two while holding the Orioles to one run on eight hits over five innings in a winning effort Monday night.

The win improved his record to 5-3 on the season, while Rodriguez consistently stayed ahead of the Baltimore lineup (20-of-24 first-pitch strikes) Monday night. The seven-strikeout performance was Rodriguez's second best of the season, topped only by an eight-strikeout night against the Astros on May 5. Rodriguez will make his next scheduled start Saturday against the Angels in Arlington.

Rodriguez (4-3) gave up eight runs on 11 hits and three walks while striking out four in Wednesday's loss to the A's.

Texas had won its last six games started by Rodriguez, who had allowed three runs or less in each of those games. That streak was snapped Wednesday when Rodriguez gave up eight runs in the first two innings. The 36-year-old lefty will look to bounce back in his next scheduled start Monday at Baltimore.

Rodriguez (3-2) gave up just one run on three hits and three walks with six strikeouts in 6.1 innings against the Twins on Friday, but did not factor into the decision.

Wandy has quietly enjoyed a solid season for the Rangers. He is inducing groundballs at a career-high rate (48.3%) and has only given up four home runs all year en route to a 3.03 ERA thus far. It took Rodriguez 122 pitches to get 20 outs Friday, so owners should beware of fatigue when he starts at the Dodgers on Wednesday.

He continues to provide a beleaguered Rangers rotation with quality innings, and Rodriguez now has a 3.25 ERA and 43:18 K:BB ratio through nine starts and 52.2 IP. He'll next take the hill on Friday, at home against the Twins.

Rodriguez was solid in a no-decision on Sunday against the Red Sox, as he gave up three runs (two earned) over 5.2 innings with four strikeouts and zero walks.

The veteran scattered nine singles on the day, but was able to avoid any major damage despite giving up a run on an error with men on in the second inning. Rodriguez has now given up three runs or fewer in all but two of his starts this season and continues to put up solid, yet unspectacular numbers for the Rangers.

Rodriguez allowed five runs on eight hits, walking one and striking out two over 4.2 innings of an 8-3 loss to Cleveland on Friday night.

He gave up two runs in the top of the first inning, but his mates scored three in the bottom of the frame to give him a lead. The Indians then scored in the fourth and fifth innings to chase him. It was a struggle throughout as Rodriguez (1-2, 3.86 ERA) needed 101 pitches (64 for strikes) and didn't make it out of the fifth. He has been extremely inconsistent so far this season and would have to be considered a risky play right now.
