Braves' Dereck Rodriguez: Rejoins big club
Atlanta selected Rodriguez's contract from Triple-A Gwinnett on Sunday.
The 31-year-old was outrighted to Triple-A in late July after he delivered a scoreless two-thirds of an inning during his lone appearance with Atlanta, but he'll receive another look in the majors down the stretch. Rodgriguez has pitched to a 6.45 ERA across 44.2 innings (23 appearances) at Gwinnett, so he's likely to have a low-leverage role while up in the big leagues.... See More ... See Less

Braves' Dereck Rodriguez: Summoned from minors
Atlanta recalled Rodriguez from Triple-A Gwinnett on Monday.
Rodriguez will be taking the 26-man active roster spot of rookie right-hander AJ Smith-Shawver, who was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move. Though Smith-Shawver had been serving as Atlanta's No. 5 starter, Rodriguez is expected to settle into a long-relief/mop-up role out of the bullpen, as Michael Soroka is likely to be called up from Gwinnett when Smith-Shawver's turn in the rotation next comes up Wednesday versus the Twins. After being claimed off waivers from Minnesota in mid-May, Rodriguez previously made one two-inning relief appearance for Atlanta before being optioned to Gwinnett.... See More ... See Less

Rodriguez will slot in as an additional bullpen option for Atlanta, though he carries limited fantasy appeal.... See More ... See Less
Braves' Dereck Rodriguez: Finds work in new organization
Atlanta claimed Rodriguez off waivers from Minnesota on Monday and optioned him to Triple-A Gwinnett.
Though the Twins optioned Rodriguez to Triple-A St. Paul on Saturday, the organization seemingly moved him off the 40-man roster at some point thereafter, which made him eligible to be claimed off waivers. Rodriguez will now move on to an Atlanta organization that has had its rotation depth hit hard by the injuries this season, and the 30-year-old right-hander may not have to wait long for a promotion to the big club when a spot starter or long reliever is needed. Prior to his brief stint in the majors with the Twins, Rodriguez accrued a 4.66 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 20:10 K:BB over 19.1 innings at St. Paul.... See More ... See Less

The 30-year-old reliever holds a 4.66 ERA and 1.31 WHIP through 19.1 innings in Triple-A.

The Twins optioned Rodriguez to Triple-A St. Paul on Sunday.
Fresh off his call-up from Triple-A on Saturday, Rodriguez proceeded to appear in long relief in the Twins' 7-6 loss in the second game of a doubleheader. He was the pitcher of record in the 15-inning loss, covering the final 3.2 frames and allowing two unearned runs. Since Rodriguez tossed 40 pitches in the outing and wasn't likely to be available out of the bullpen for a few more days, the Twins unsurprisingly elected to swap him off the active roster for a fresh arm in right-hander Ronny Henriquez, who was summoned from Triple-A....

Twins' Dereck Rodriguez: Joins big-league bullpen
Rodriguez was called up by the Twins on Saturday, Do-Hyoung Park of MLB.com reports.
