MIAMI (AP) Los Angeles Dodgers left-hander Paco Rodriguez has had a setback in his recovery from elbow tendinitis and needs surgery that will sideline him for an additional eight to 10 weeks. Rodriguez made four rehab appearances with Class-A Rancho Cucamonga and Triple-A Oklahoma City with hopes of returning to the big league club on Monday before the new trouble. ''Disappointing...

Mets Eyeing Trio Of Dodgers Lefty Relievers

According to a report by Mark Saxon of ESPN Los Angeles, the Mets are keeping an eye on J.P. Howell, Paco Rodriguez, and Adam Liberatore from the Dodgers in case one of them becomes available. Howell, 31, is owed $4 million this season and the Dodgers hold a $6.25 million option on him for 2016, so not sure he’ll appeal to the Mets at that price. And as for the other two...

Paco Rodriguez and Carlos Frias should make postseason roster

Slow day here at Dodgers Digest. While I think Mike (or one of us) will make a postseason roster prediction, I’m going to throw you a couple names that should be included in the roster. Paco Rodriguez and Carlos Frias. Rodriguez has proven his worth, despite a late-season collapse in 2013. He hasn’t pitched much in the majors this season due to injury and general dumbness, but...

The win improved the Dodgers to 64-50, two and a half games in front of the San Francisco Giants in the National League West.

Welcome Back, Paco Rodriguez

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...

Paco Rodriguez’ Mechanical Fix

(via) 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...

What Happened to Paco Rodriguez?

(via) 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. This lasted until September, when he completely fell apart. He was so ineffective at the end of the season that he was left off of the NLCS roster against a Cardinals team that could not hit...
