A few updates and thoughts on the Wandy Rodriguez situation

The news about Wandy Rodriguez hitting the disabled list for a knee problem came at the end of the work day yesterday, so I didn’t have a chance to post much about it. The situation is a bit clearer now, so getting a post together today is probably a little bit more useful anyway. There’s been no indication from the Pirates how serious Wandy’s knee injury is, but if you put...

Wandy Rodriguez goes on the disabled list

The Pirates placed left-hander Wandy Rodriguez on the 15-day disabled list Monday with right knee inflammation. It’s unclear how or when Rodriguez injured the knee. He pitched Saturday and was scheduled to pitch Thursday. “Wandy is not sure how he hurt his knee,” Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said. “He’d gone to the training room after his last start and complained of...

Wandy Rodriguez to the DL

Well, this wasn’t too hard to see coming. Wandy is headed to the disabled list with “inflammation in his right knee.” Maybe that’s a legitimate issue for him (and might explain some of his recent woes) and maybe it’s not, but either way he’s out of the rotation for now, which is honestly probably a good thing for the short-term. Jared Hughes has been called up to take...

Knee injury sends Wandy Rodriguez to the disabled list

Wandy Rodriguez was scheduled to start Thursday for the Pirates, but instead the left-hander has been placed on the disabled list with right knee inflammation. Pittsburgh has called up right-hander Jared Hughes to replace Rodriguez on the roster, but he’s a reliever and the Pirates figure to add a starter to fill in for him by Thursday.

Game 18: Brewers 8 Pirates 7

I don’t want to put too much stock into any individual April baseball game, but this is a pretty tough loss to swallow. The Pirates went into the seventh inning with a two-run lead despite Wandy Rodriguez spending four innings throwing floating meatballs to Brewer hitters, and then the Pirates’ best relievers served up two home runs to Ryan Braun in the final three innings to...

Wandy Rodriguez goes for a sweep (weather permitting)

The Pirates and Cubs are scheduled to play at 12:35 this afternoon, though the weather forecast is not pleasant. Since the Pirates and Cubs play about 100 more games this year and the two clubs played 16 innings last night, I’d be willing to guess they pull the trigger on canceling this one early, if it comes to it. Wandy Rodriguez is scheduled to go for the Pirates. Obviously...

First Pitch: Wandy Rodriguez Will Most Likely Land the Pirates a Draft Pick

Wandy Rodriguez will likely land a draft pick for the Pirates in 2014. Photo Credit: David Hague When the Wandy Rodriguez trade first went down, I wasn’t a big fan of the deal. Rodriguez had been struggling with the Astros in the two months leading up to the trade, and had seen his strikeouts dropping in each of the last few seasons. Simply put, he wasn’t the same pitcher he...

Pittsburgh Pirates: Trade deadline update

Some numbered thoughts heading into Tuesday’s MLB 4:00PM non-waiver trade deadline… 1-5:  Wandy Rodriguez 1.  I’ve been very critical of Pirates’ GM Neal Huntington over the past year, but I was impressed with last week’s SP Wandy Rodriguez trade with Houston.  While other clubs were still jockeying with the Cubs for Ryan Dempster, and waiting to see if the Phillies...

First Pitch: Why I Don’t Like the Wandy Rodriguez Trade

I thought a lot about Wandy Rodriguez tonight. I really didn’t have any other choice. I was driving down to Florida today, which is a 13 hour trip from Virginia. The main purpose of that trip is helping my parents move to Orlando tomorrow. The second part of the trip will be heading over to Bradenton to cover the GCL and the Bradenton Marauders on Thursday and Friday. One of the...
