Rodney's preparation was delayed earlier this spring due to a virus, Ryan Divish of the Seattle Times reports.

Analysis:

Rodney has appeared in just two games all spring, but both outings came in the last four days, so it appears he has found his health again. Rodney gave up three runs over 1.2 innings in his first two spring games, but he will still have three weeks to prepare for the Mariners' season opener March 31.
