Contemplating Fernando Rodney

On April 26, Fernando Rodney entered with a lead. He did not get an out, and the Yankees beat the Twins. At that point Rodney had a 1-2 record with two saves, two blown saves and an ERA of 6.75. He had not had a 1-2-3 inning in 2018.

He has allowed one run since. He has allowed just 10 baserunners in 11.1 innings -- five hits, five walks . His ERA on the season is 2.84, which isn't eye-popping for a closer but a far cry from his April figure. He's even had seven 1-2-3 innings, which helps mute The Fernando Rodney Experience jibes.

While the Twins bullpen has its issues, Rodney is not one of them. A month ago, I could not have said that.
