Fernando Rodney (born March 18, 1977 in Samana, Dominican Republic) is a Major League Baseball relief pitcher who is currently playing for the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Rodney throws a fastball in the mid to upper-90 miles per hour and a changeup in the low 80s.

Rodney was signed by the Detroit Tigers as an amateur free agent in 1997. He spent 1999–2003 in the minor leagues, moving from the Gulf Coast League to the International League. Rodney underwent Tommy John surgery following the 2003 season (which he spent in the minor leagues). He spent the 2004 season recovering and failed to make the Tigers opening day roster after 2005 spring training.

Rodney made his Major League league debut 2002 at the age of 25 and split his time between the Triple-A Toledo Mud Hens and the Tigers from 2002–2005.
