Eduardo Rodriguez won't return to pitching for approximately six months after having a right knee patellofemoral ligament reconstruction on Tuesday.
Rodriguez has been plagued by a chronic knee problem off and on for the last four years. Obviously, he's going to get a late start to the 2018 season after this procedure. How much time he'll spend on the disabled list remains to be seen. Rodriguez posted a 4.19 ERA and 150/50 K/BB ratio over 137 1/3 innings this year. Oct 17 - 3:49 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez allowed five runs on six hits over 1 2/3 innings in a loss to the Astros on Thursday.

Rodriguez was a pitch away from avoiding serious trouble in both the first and second innings, but in both instances he instead gave up key hits that plated all five runs. In the first, it was a Marwin Gonzalez three-run double; in the second, an Alex Bregman two-run homer. Both came with two outs in their respective innings. That maddening inconsistency plagued E-Rod all year, contributing to a 6-6 record and 4.19 ERA despite 150 strikeouts in 137 1/3 innings of work. At 24 years old, Rodriguez's best days are likely still ahead of him in the Sox rotation.

Eduardo Rodriguez allowed just three hits while firing 7 2/3 scoreless frames in a 5-0 win over the Reds on Saturday.

The Reds may not be a winning team but they can hit, and Rodriguez shut them down with ease in this one. He struck out six batters, walked two and surrendered just three harmless singles. The 24-year-old left-hander improves to 6-6 with a 3.91 ERA through 23 starts (plus one relief appearance). He has an excellent 148:48 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 135 2/3 innings.
Sep 23 - 7:44 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez allowed three runs -- two earned -- in just under six innings of a 3-2 loss to Tampa on Sunday.

Rodriguez walked just one, and struck out seven. It wasn't a bad effort from the left-hander, but he was outdueled by Jake Odorizzi, and gave up a costly homer to Jesus Sucre to end his outing. We'll see Rodriguez again on Saturday when he faces the Cincinnati lineup.
Sep 17 - 4:25 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez allowed just a run and a hit over six innings and struck out nine in beating the A's on Tuesday.

Rodriguez is pitching for a postseason rotation spot, and he's helped his cause with 17 strikeouts in back-to-back quality starts against the Jays and A's to begin September. Still, those are two offenses that aren't hitting much at all. He'll get another lesser lineup when he faces the Rays on Sunday.
Sep 12 - 11:26 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez held the Blue Jays to two runs while striking out eight over six frames in a no-decision Tuesday, as the Red Sox eventually won 3-2 in the 19th inning.

Kendrys Morales took him deep as one of the six hits the Jays got off the left-hander, but the only other run Toronto got came on a sac fly. Rodriguez walked just one batter on the night and it was the southpaw’s first quality start in five tries. The Red Sox' bullpen twirled 13 scoreless innings after Rodriguez exited, as the club tied the American League record by using 12 pitchers. The lefty gets the A’s next.
Sep 6 - 1:33 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez allowed five runs and 10 hits over five innings in a loss to the Yankees on Thursday.

The Yanks hit a pair of homers off the southpaw, who also walked two while striking out four. It was the second consecutive start in which Rodriguez has allowed five runs, dropping his record to 4-5 with a 4.40 ERA and 1.30 WHIP. He's still winless since May 26, a span of 10 starts. E-Rod will look to get back in that win column Tuesday against the Blue Jays.
Sep 1 - 12:02 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez coughed up five earned runs in 6 2/3 innings and was charged with a loss to the Orioles on Saturday.

He punched out seven batters while walking only one. The 24-year-old left-hander was burned by one bad inning. Baltimore was able to bunch several hits together in the second inning to score five runs in the frame, with the big blow being a three-run blast by shortstop Tim Beckham. Rodriguez was left in to throw 117 pitches in the outing. He falls to 4-4 with a 4.19 ERA in 18 starts. He has 114 strikeouts and 38 walks in 105 1/3 innings pitched.
Aug 26 - 7:16 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez allowed three earned runs over 5 2/3 innings Monday in a no-decision versus the Indians.

Boston lost the game in the bottom of the ninth. Rodriguez actually pitched pretty well overall, except for the three-run homer he surrendered to Indians backup catcher Roberto Perez in the bottom of the second. The 24-year-old left-hander will bring a 4.01 ERA and 1.25 WHIP into his next start at home versus the Orioles. He struck out five batters Monday and now has 107 strikeouts in 98 2/3 total innings this season.
Aug 21 - 10:55 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez surrendered four runs in 5 1/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Cardinals.

All four runs came in the second, and there's a good chance Rodriguez wouldn't have even survived the inning if not for a baserunning blunder from Matt Carpenter that got him his second out. Having made it through, he settled down nicely; of the final nine hitters he faced, the only batter to reach against him did so on an error. Rodriguez's next start will come Monday or Tuesday against the Indians.
Aug 16 - 11:17 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez racked up seven strikeouts over six shutout innings against the Yankees on Friday but had to settle for a no-decision after the Red Sox' bullpen collapsed in the eighth inning.

The hard-throwing southpaw allowed just two hits and two walks on the night, throwing 67 of his 107 pitches for strikes. Rodriguez has now delivered two consecutive quality starts and now boasts a 3.80 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 96/34 K/BB ratio on the season. He'll do battle against the Cardinals his next time out on Wednesday.
Aug 11 - 11:11 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez gave up two runs over six innings Friday in a no-decision against the White Sox.

The only damage was a two-run double from Nicky Delmonico in the fourth inning. Rodriguez gave up four hits in all while walking two and striking out five. He threw a season-high 117 pitches. The southpaw has been shaky since coming off the disabled list, but this outing was a step in the right direction. He’ll try to keep it going against the Yankees next week.
Aug 5 - 12:00 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez played with fire all night, finally getting burned for four runs in the fourth inning in a no-decision Saturday against the Royals.

E-Rod worked into and out of trouble for most of the first three innings, managing to keep the Royals off the board despite a high pitch count. The 24-year-old almost pulled another escape act in the fourth, moving within one strike of limiting the damage to one run, before Lorenzo Cain's three-run homer marred his night. Rodriguez gave up seven hits and walked three while striking out five on the night. It's been an adventure since the southpaw came off the disabled list after the All-Star break, with his ERA inflating to 4.16 with a 1.30 WHIP through 14 games, 13 starts, altogether. An attractive date with the White Sox is on tap for Thursday, but it's hard to trust Rodriguez at this juncture.
Jul 30 - 12:41 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez allowed four earned runs, six hits and two walks with six strikeouts across 5 1/3 innings in a loss Monday in Seattle.

Rodriguez threw just 61 of his 99 pitches for strikes, failing to post a quality start for the third straight outing. He had managed seven consecutive quality starts from April 23-May 26. Oddly enough, while he hasn't been doing deep into games lately, his strikeouts have increased.
Jul 25 - 3:03 AM

Making his return from the disabled list, Eduardo Rodriguez gave up three runs in 5 1/3 innings Monday in a no-decision against the Blue Jays.

Rodriguez struck out eight, but he also walked four and his velocity decreased over the course of his outing. He was impressive in his rehab stint, so it doesn't seem like he needed another minor league start. It just wasn't quite pre-knee injury form tonight.
