Wandy Rodriguez coughed up five runs on nine hits and three walks with just two strikeouts over five innings against the Angels on Saturday.

For the third-straight start, Rodriguez failed to pitch past the fifth inning and for the second time in his last three outings, he’s allowed five or more runs. He had a real hot start to the season, so this performance only pushed his ERA to 4.23 on the year, but this latest version, this inconsistent performer, is the Wandy we should have grown to expect. It’s tough to expect him to limit the runs while also going deep into games so you should really start picking and choosing your battles with him more carefully. His next outing, which comes against the Padres, is certainly favorable, though with a recently-rising 9.4-percent HR/FB, you’d rather not have this start coming at home. Analysis: Howard Bender
