The Marlins are banking on getting the dependable version of Fernando Rodney in the late innings, which hasn't always been the case.
The San Diego Padres announced Thursday they have sent veteran closer Fernando Rodney to the Miami Marlins in exchange for prospect Chris Paddack.

Another angle on Marlins' closer choice: since the beginning of 2014, A.J. Ramos has 39 games of 4-plus outs, Fernando Rodney 7. Ramos provides greater flexibility in setup innings.
