Scioscia not surprised by Rodney's hot start
ST. PETERSBURG -- Fernando Rodney has converted five saves in five opportunities for the Rays this season, prompting his former Angels manager, Mike Scioscia, to be asked whether he was surprised by Rodney's success.

"I wouldn't say surprised, because at times he pitched well for us, but he's definitely throwing well for them," Scioscia said on Wednesday, before the second game of the series at Tropicana Field.

Sciosica addressed the problems Rodney had while pitching for the Angels.

"The last month of '10 he wasn't as sharp as he had been," Scioscia said. "You saw a carryover where he wasn't totally comfortable at the start of the '11 season, and he missed about five weeks with that injury and never got back in sync. There's no doubt his arm was there, but he just couldn't locate it."
