Fernando Rodney nailed down his 16th save of the season with a perfect inning in Wednesday's win over the Braves.

Freddie Freeman flew out to the warning track to start the ninth, but Rodney induced a weak grounder from Justin Upton and then struck out Evan Gattis to end it. The Mariners' closer has converted 16-of-18 save chances so far this season while posting a 2.38 ERA and 28/10 K/BB ratio over 22 2/3 frames.

Fernando Rodney recorded his 13th -- and easiest -- save of the year by recording the final out of Wednesday's win against the Angels.

Felix Hernandez recorded the first 26 outs, but the 27th proved elusive and Lloyd McClendon didn't want to take any chances. He called upon Rodney, who three pitches later coaxed a David Freese line out to short. The 37-year-old Rodney is a solid 13-for-15 in save opportunities with a nice 2.75 ERA, but he's been reliably unreliable once again in posting a 1.53 WHIP. He's only given up two base runners over his last four appearances, to be fair.

Fernando Rodney held the Astros without a base runner over a scoreless ninth inning to preserve the Mariners' 3-1 victory on Thursday.

It's nice to see Rodney work a stress free 1-2-3 frame after watching him work out of so many jams already this season. He's giving up too many base runners -- as his 1.58 WHIP attests -- though the veteran closer hasn't necessarily disappointed in going 12-for-14 in save conversions with a 2.95 ERA and 23/9 K/BB rate over 18 1/3 innings.

Fernando Rodney allowed a hit but held the Athletics scoreless in the bottom of the 10th inning to preserve the Mariners' 6-4 win on Wednesday.

Rodney got two easy outs before an Eric Sogard double made things interesting, but he froze Craig Gentry to earn his ninth save. He hasn't allowed a run in 4 1/3 innings, and overall the right-hander has a 2.63 ERA, 1.46 WHIP and 20/6 K/BB ratio in 13 2/3 innings.

Fernando Rodney earned his eighth save of the season as the Mariners topped the A's Monday.

It was an easy 1-2-3 appearance which included a strikeout. The right-hander has allowed a few more hits than you'd like thus far, but he's been effective overall, thanks mostly to a spectacular strikeout rate. Rodney is now 8-for-9 in save opportunities to go with a 2.84 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 19/6 K/BB rate over 12 2/3 innings.

Fernando Rodney earned his seventh save of the season as the Mariners topped the Astros on Saturday.

Fernando Rodney tossed a scoreless ninth inning to pick up his sixth save as the Mariners defeated the Yankees on Thursday.

Rodney was never in danger, allowing only a two-out single to Ichiro Suzuki, but it was yet again another unclean inning for the veteran closer. He has had one 1-2-3 inning in 11 appearances. Rodney has converted six of seven save opportunities, but one has to wonder just how long his tightrope act can last. He does have 16 strikeouts in 10 1/3 innings, which is comforting.

Fernando Rodney pitched a scoreless ninth inning, striking out two, to earn the save in Sunday's win over the Rangers.

Rodney allowed two runs in a save against the Rangers on Friday, but he was much better this time around. Rodney struck out two and didn't allow a baserunner in the inning. He's got five saves in six chances this year.

Fernando Rodney recorded a save Friday despite allowing two runs in the ninth against the Rangers.

It took a game-saving stab from Justin Smoak to make it happen. Before that, Rodriguez issued two walks with the bases loaded. He had retired just one of six batters before Adrian Beltre's liner was turned into a double play. The Mariners can't have a whole lot of faith in Rodney at this point, even if he does have just the one blown save. His WHIP stands at 2.05, for crying out loud. If he gets lit up at any point within the next several days, they could make a quick switch to Danny Farquhar.

Fernando Rodney blew his first save of the season and earned the loss, serving up two runs to the Rangers in the ninth inning as they walked off 3-2 winners on Wednesday.

Rodney, who had been 3-for-3 in save opportunities, appeared to have another easy night on his hands, getting the first two outs in the ninth. Then he walked Mitch Moreland, saw David Murphy reach on Brad Miller's throwing error, threw a wild pitch to allow the tying run to score, then gave up the winning run on Leonys Martin's walk-off single. Rodney always finds a way to make it interesting, but he has earned 85 saves and posted a 1.91 ERA over the last two seasons.
