News: Rodriguez got the critical third out in the eighth inning on Friday night to register his fourth hold of the season.
Impact: Interestingly, the Dodgers have increasingly turned to Yimi Garcia, Rodriguez and Pedro Baez in close-and-late situations. Kenley Jansen (foot) is making progress in his rehab, and his return will shake things up in the bullpen, but they have other good options, as opposed to last season in the playoffs.
Rotowire: Mar 23 / 2:32p ET
News: Rodriguez is making a strong case for inclusion on the Opening Day roster with six scoreless three-hit innings and a 7:0 K:BB.
Impact: Meanwhile, fellow lefty J.P. Howell has a 9.64 ERA. Rodriguez posted disappointing results last year after a promising rookie season, so he'll look to rebound in a big way in 2015.
Rotowire: Feb 12 / 11:20a ET
News: Rodriguez comes to camp looking to join fellow lefty J.P. Howell in the Dodgers' bullpen after a disappointing 2014, Ken Gurnick of MLB.com reports.
Impact: He'll have to beat out the likes of Sergio Santos, David Huff, Juan Nicasio, etc., but a healthy and effective Rodriguez has an edge due to his handedness.
