Date:

Back from paternity leave, Eduardo Rodriguez pitched a perfect inning in relief Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

The Red Sox didn't need Rodriguez in this one, since Rick Porcello went seven innings, but they did want to get him into a game before his scheduled start this weekend. He'll face the Orioles on Sunday.
Apr 19 - 10:28 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said that Eduardo Rodriguez will be available for up to four innings against the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

Rodriguez was placed on the paternity leave list earlier this week to celebrate the birth of his son. The plan is that he could potentially see work out of the pen in Wednesday's contest to help shake off the rust. He is expected to rejoin the starting rotation against Baltimore on Sunday.
Apr 19 - 5:23 PM

Red Sox activated LHP Eduardo Rodriguez from the paternity leave list.

Rodriguez will be available as an emergency arm out of the Red Sox bullpen on Wednesday night against the Blue Jays before returning to the rotation Sunday in Baltimore. The young left-hander has a 5.23 ERA, 1.55 WHIP, and 13/7 K/BB ratio through 10 1/3 innings (two starts) this season.
Apr 19 - 1:56 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (wife having baby) is expected to rejoin the Red Sox on Wednesday.

And he could be available out of the Red Sox bullpen Wednesday night against the Blue Jays before taking his next turn in the rotation Sunday in Baltimore. Rodriguez was placed on the paternity leave list Monday after his wife gave birth to a baby boy.
Apr 18 - 5:18 PM

Red Sox placed LHP Eduardo Rodriguez on the paternity leave list.

Rodriguez left the team after his wife gave birth to a baby boy. He was scheduled to start Tuesday against the Blue Jays, but now Brian Johnson is likely to be called up to pitch instead. Ben Taylor has been called up for Monday's game against the Rays.
Apr 17 - 9:52 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez surrendered three runs -- two earned -- over 5 1/3 innings Thursday against the Pirates.

Rodriguez got off to a very shaky start in the first, walking the leadoff man, giving up a two-run homer to Andrew McCutchen batting third and then allowing two more singles before escaping the inning. He was better from there, and he ended up with eight strikeouts, though he also walked four. Those hoping for a breakthrough from Rodriguez are probably feeling let down with him sporting a 5.23 ERA after two starts. He never figured to be very consistent, though. He's a fringe option in mixed leagues.
Apr 13 - 5:46 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez suffered defeat at the hand of the Tigers in his season debut on Saturday, surrendering four runs on five hits over his five frames.

The left-hander punched out five and walked three on the afternoon. He served up a pair of solo homers in the contest, one to the light-hitting Jose Iglesias in the third and another to James McCann during a three-run rally in the fifth. He'll look for better results when he takes on the Rays at home on Friday.
Apr 8 - 6:28 PM

Thursday's game between the Pirates and Red Sox has been postponed due to rain.

The game will be made up next Thursday, April 13. Ivan Nova will stay on turn for the Pirates on Friday, which means Thursday's scheduled starter, Chad Kuhl, will be pushed back or skipped. Eduardo Rodriguez will start on Saturday, with Steven Wright staying slotted in for Friday. Adjust your lineups accordingly.
Apr 6 - 9:47 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez allowed two runs in his three-inning Grapefruit League start versus the Nationals on Saturday.

He gave up just two hits but walked three while fanning four. It has been a mostly solid spring for Rodriguez, although his last couple starts were shaky. He winds up camp with a 3.68 ERA through 22 innings. He will start the season in the Red Sox rotation but may lose the job when (or if) David Price returns to action. Rodriguez started 20 games for the Red Sox last year, turning in a 3-7 record with a 4.71 ERA in 107 innings.
Apr 1 - 5:56 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez gave up six runs -- four earned -- and nine hits in six innings Monday against the Orioles.

Rodriguez surrendered five extra-base hits in this one. He's looked quite strong for the most part this spring, but consistency remains a question mark here. He is all set for the rotation, at least until David Price comes back.
Mar 27 - 5:32 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez threw 85 pitches in a minor league game on Wednesday.

He allowed one run on six hits and zero walks while striking out seven. Rodriguez pitched on the minor league side in order to stay on his regular turn. Assured of a rotation spot with David Price (elbow) sidelined, the young southpaw possesses some breakout potential this year.
Mar 22 - 2:24 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez pitched four scoreless innings and struck out six Friday against the Astros.

Rodriguez opened the fifth, but he was replaced after a leadoff single. Rodriguez has a 2.08 ERA and 13 strikeouts in 13 innings this spring. He's going to try to make it very difficult on the Red Sox to take him out of the rotation once David Price comes back.
Mar 17 - 5:46 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez declined a request to pitch for Venezuela in the second round of the World Baseball Classic.

It's probably for the best. Rodriguez should begin the year with a rotation spot if healthy, but he's had knee problems and David Price is already slated to miss some time with an elbow injury. It's unclear if he'd participate in the event that Venezuela advances to the championship round, but the Red Sox would probably prefer if he didn't at this point.
Mar 15 - 12:00 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez pitched four innings of one-run ball Sunday against the Phillies.

Rodriguez struck out three and walked one. He's caught up quickly after being held back by his knee at the beginning of spring training. Odds are that he'll open up in the rotation, with David Price likely to spend a little time on the DL. It's possible Rodriguez will be shuffled in and out a couple of times before settling into the rotation for good.
