Francisco Rodriguez

Rotoworld.com is the source

Angels placed RHP Francisco Rodriguez on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 15, with a strained right forearm.
This would seem to indicate he won't be available tonight after all. He will be eligible to come off the DL next Monday. Scot Shields will continue to close in his place. Right-hander Joel Peralta is being brought up to replace him on the roster.


>>> Didn't see anything about this posted in the injury forum, but would not be surprised if someone may have already mentioned this in a trade-waiver forum.


P.S. If Beltran joins the DL, I think I'll let ALL my teams sit regardless of the standing. There'll only be one club that I'll keep active but that's it. Anyone likewise thinking of the same thing?

Shields has been saving the games ever since KRod first got hurt.

He's also excellent for ratios and K's if you need those out of your bullpen as well. I had him at the start of the year but dropped him to pick up T. Walker once I was pretty sure Walker had the job. He's definitely worth a roster spot if you have a scrub to drop in a 5x5 roto league with daily changes but only if you can't find a full-time closer for every available pitching slot.
