Eduardo Rodriguez struck out a career-high 13 over 5 1/3 innings of one-run ball, netting a no-decision in Sunday's 3-2 extra-innings win over the Rays.
It was a record-setting day for the Red Sox, as Rodriguez combined with the bullpen to strike out 21 Rays batters over the first nine innings. The left-hander lost out on a win when Tampa knotted things up in the eighth inning, but much more important is that E-Rod is hitting his stride as the playoffs near with a 2.03 ERA over his last eight starts. Boston is playing its best baseball of the year, as well, with 11 straight victories. Rodriguez will close out his regular season at home against the Blue Jays. Sep 25 - 5:22 PM

Date:

Eduardo Rodriguez struck out seven while holding the Orioles to two runs across 6 1/3 innings in a 5-2 victory Tuesday.

Rodriguez had a no-hitter with two outs in the fifth inning until Trey Mancinci broke that up with a solo home run. The left-hander yielded only four hits and one walk on the night to go along with his seven punchouts. The inconsistency with Rodriguez can be frustrating, but he's mostly been very good since the beginning of August with a 3.26 ERA. He'll face the Rays in Tampa on Sunday.
Sep 20 - 11:18 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez was chased after 2 1/3 innings Thursday against the Yankees, allowing four runs on eight hits in the no-decision.

Rodriguez clearly didn't have it on this night, and Red Sox manager John Farrell made the right call in a game that the Sox ended up coming back to win. The 23-year-old has had some clunkers this year but had been pretty good leading up to Thursday, giving up more than three runs just once in his previous 10 starts. It all adds up to a 4.98 ERA and 1.34 WHIP for the southpaw through 17 starts. He'll try to right the ship Tuesday against the Orioles.
Sep 15 - 11:47 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez logged a quality start in Saturday's loss to the Blue Jays, surrendering three runs (two earned) on four hits over six innings of work.

The left-hander walked two and punched out five on the afternoon. The big blow against him came on a two-run blast off the bat of Melvin Upton in the second inning. Now 2-7 on the season, Rodriguez will carry a 4.70 ERA and 1.28 WHIP into Thursday's outing against the Yankees.
Sep 10 - 4:20 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez was knocked around in Sunday's loss to the Royals, allowing five runs on four hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Rodriguez struggled with his command in the contest, issuing four walks while striking just one. It was his first start since August 16 due to discomfort he experienced in his left hamstring and the left-hander appeared a bit rusty. He'll bring a disappointing 5.35 ERA and 1.41 WHIP into Saturday's matchup against the Athletics in Oakland.
Aug 28 - 11:37 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (hamstring) has declared himself ready to start Sunday versus the Royals.

Rodriguez went all-out in a bullpen session Thursday at Tropicana Field and experienced no lingering discomfort in his left hamstring. He last started August 16 against the Orioles and made it through just four innings (hitless innings, by the way) before feeling hamstring tightness. The young left-hander owns a sharp 2.52 ERA in 39 1/3 innings (seven starts) since being recalled from Triple-A Pawtucket in mid-July.
Aug 25 - 12:05 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said that the team will not decide on a Sunday starter until Eduardo Rodriguez (hamstring) tosses a Thursday bullpen.

Rodriguez is fresh off a simulated start on Tuesday in which he threw 59 pitches. He initially felt his left hamstring tighten up during a mid-August contest against the Orioles. The 23-year-old southpaw was subsequently scratched from a scheduled start against the Tigers due to lingering discomfort. Should his Thursday bullpen go off without a hitch, he could start against the Royals in Fenway on Sunday.
Aug 24 - 5:21 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (hamstring) threw 59 pitches in a simulated start on Tuesday.

If he wakes up Wednesday feeling fine, the Red Sox will likely clear him to rejoin the rotation over the weekend. Rodriguez had to be scratched from his scheduled start on Sunday versus the Tigers with lingering tightness in his left hamstring. The tightness also forced him from his previous outing against the Orioles.
Aug 23 - 5:18 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (hamstring) will throw a three-inning simulated game on Tuesday.

Rodriguez was scratched from Sunday's scheduled start against the Tigers due continued tightness in his left hamstring. The hope is that he'll show enough progress Tuesday to be cleared to return to action.
Aug 22 - 5:36 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (hamstring) has been scratched from his scheduled start on Sunday versus the Tigers.

Rodriguez was pulled from his last outing with a tight left hamstring and he still felt it during a between-starts bullpen session. The left-hander will not be placed on the disabled list, so it sounds like he's expected to start sometime later this week. Henry Owens will be recalled to make a spot start.
Aug 21 - 8:18 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez (hamstring) remains on track to start Sunday against the Tigers.

Rodriguez exited his last outing versus the Orioles with tightness in his left hamstring, but he'll be fine. The left-hander had tossed four hitless innings while striking out seven before leaving his last start.
Aug 19 - 8:54 AM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Wednesday that it looks like Eduardo Rodriguez (hamstring) will make his next start Sunday against the Tigers.

Rodriguez left his start Tuesday night against the Orioles after experiencing tightness in his left hamstring, but he felt good after the game and even better when he reported back to Camden Yards on Wednesday afternoon. This doesn't sound like a hamstring strain. Rodriguez had thrown four hitless innings Tuesday versus the O's and boasts a 2.52 ERA with 39 strikeouts in 39 1/3 innings since his return to the major league rotation in mid-July.
Aug 17 - 2:51 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said he's optimistic Eduardo Rodriguez (hamstring) won't have to miss a turn in the starting rotation.

Rodriguez left his start Tuesday against the Orioles after four hitless innings because of tightness in his left hamstring, but the leg loosened up as the night went on and Farrell told reporters after the game that he felt the team caught the issue before it became something serious. Rodriguez has been excellent in three of his last four outings.

Eduardo Rodriguez departed his start Tuesday against the Orioles because of left hamstring tightness.

Rodriguez was able to walk off the field under his own power, so we can hope he did not suffer a hamstring strain. The young left-hander was working on a no-hitter through four innings at Camden Yards, having racked up seven strikeouts against one walk. He will be reevaluated on Wednesday.
Aug 16 - 8:52 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez left his start Tuesday against the Orioles with an undisclosed injury.

Rodriguez had worked four innings of hitless ball with seven strikeouts and a walk. He had actually struck out four Orioles in a row before calling for a trainer after throwing two straight balls to Steve Pearce to open the bottom of the fifth. There should be an update out of Baltimore within the next hour or so.
