Fernando Rodriguez (born June 18, 1984) is an American professional baseball player who plays for the Oakland Athletics of Major League Baseball (MLB).
Rodriguez made his major league debut with the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim against the New York Yankees on May 2, 2009, at Yankee Stadium, pitching in one inning, getting two outs, and giving up three runs.
On May 17, 2011, Rodriguez was called up by the Houston Astros.
After the 2012 season, the Astros traded Rodriguez and Jed Lowrie to the Oakland Athletics for Chris Carter, Brad Peacock, and Max Stassi.
He had season-ending Tommy John surgery on March 28 and missed the entire 2013 season.
After the 2013 season, Rodriguez signed a one-year contract with the Athletics for 2014, avoiding arbitration. However, the A's designated Rodriguez for assignment on December 18, only a couple weeks after signing the deal, removing him from the 40-man roster to allow for pitcher Eury De La Rosa to be added from the Arizona Diamondbacks. His contract was purchased from Triple-A Nashville and he was added to the Athletics active roster on May 7, 2015.
