Two weeks ago, Paco Rodriguez was sent to Triple-A when Brian Wilson returned. Now, he’s back, having been recalled to the Dodgers as Carlos Triunfel returns to the Isotopes. This is both good news and bad, I suppose. It’s good that Rodriguez is back, and it’s even better that the team seems to feel that Hanley Ramirez‘ thumb is healthy enough that there’s no need to have...
Early last month, I looked into the disastrous end of Paco Rodriguez‘ 2013 regular season. The most common question that I received after posting the article was “was Paco tipping his pitches?” It’s a natural question, given his unorthodox delivery (pictured above).
On Monday, this question re-surfaced, when Ken Gurnick reported that Rodriguez has made a mechanical...
For most of the year, Paco Rodriguez was one of the most dependable pitchers in the Dodgers’ bullpen. He was unhittable against lefties and nearly as good against right-handed hitting.

Manager Don Mattingly also kept Dee Gordon on his updated roster, perhaps a sign he's still not sure if or when Andre Ethier will be able to return to center...

He gave up two runs without recording an out, putting the game at 6-5 for Paco Rodriguez to save. He did just that thanks to some savvy pitching and Matt Kemp doing what you see above.
Mariano Rivera is famous for being a one-pitch pitcher. He's the most dominant reliever of all-time, thanks to a ridiculous cut fastball.
Kenley Jansen is following in Rivera's footsteps, specifically with the cutter. He's throwing it 94.6 percent of the time this season, according to Brooks Baseball.
When a relief pitcher has such a dominant pitch as Rivera and...
Gator baseball has had a tough road so far in 2013. The Gators lost plethora of talent last year the MLB Draft, a lot of whom are performing well in the minor and major leagues. Paco Rodriguez was called up … Continue reading →
Paco Rodriguez, the lefty reliever out of University Of Florida and the Dodgers‘ second round pick in 2012, was recalled to replace the injured Chad Billingsley, who found himself on the 60-day DL with his elbow injury that may require offseason surgery. Rodriguez becomes the first 2012 draftee to debut in The Show. —– Bobby... Read More »
