A native of El Paso, TX, Rodriguez had a brief call-up with the Angels before joining the Astros in 2011. He appeared with two other pitchers named Rodriguez - Wandy and Aneury - although none were related.

Fernando was a steady presence for two seasons in Houston, winning four and losing 13 with a 4.77 ERA.

Just before Spring Training 2013, the Astros shipped Fernando along with Jed Lowrie to the Oakland A's for Chris Carter, Brad Peacock, and Max Stassi.
