Fernando Rodney blew his second save in as many games on Saturday yet manager Joe Maddon still has confidence in his closer according to Tampa Tribune. Rodney blew just two saves all of last season but has already racked up five blown saves this season.

With a 6.05 ERA and 1.76 WHIP Rodney has hardly earned the confidence of anyone other then Maddon.

Sh0uld Rodney not provide better results he will leave Maddon no choice but to turn to Joel Peralta or another option at the end of games.

Today’s blown save cost the Rays a win and has returned the team to .500 on the season.
