PACO RODRIGUEZ RUMORS

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...

Dodgers Injury Update: Scott Elbert and Paco Rodriguez

The Dodger's bullpen is starting to get some much needed left handed help, in the form of Scott Elbert, and Paco Rodriguez.Elbert, who was taken off the roster in late July, was activated before Friday's game versus San Francisco. To make room on the roster, pitcher Red Patterson was designated for assignment. Elbert, who is a former first round pick of the Dodgers, last...

Dodgers Injury Update: Paco Rodriguez hits DL

The Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Los Angeles Angels last night by the score of 5-4. 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. With an offense that is 11th in the Major Leagues in runs scored and a staff that is 7th in ERA, the Dodgers have been consistently good all season. But there is some concern...

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...

Dodgers drop Rodriguez, Capuano from NLCS roster

The Dodgers made two changes to their 25-man roster for the National League Championship Series, sitting down relievers Paco Rodriguez and Chris Capuano and leaving themselves with just one one-left hander in the bullpen. 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...

Dodgers' LHP Paco Rodriguez should utilize his 4-seam fastball more often

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...
