Eduardo Rodriguez surrendered three earned runs over 5 1/3 innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the Tigers.
Rodriguez walked three and gave up nine hits, so the damage could have been even worse. The left-hander has been pretty good overall since returning from Triple-A Pawtucket after the All-Star break and he'll have a slightly friendlier matchup next week in Seattle. Jul 27 - 4:42 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez pitched well in Friday's loss to the Twins, allowing just two runs on six hits over 5 1/3 innings.

The southpaw fanned eight on the night and walked only one. Brian Dozier tagged him for a solo homer in the second inning and Miguel Sano delivered an RBI double in the sixth that proved to be the difference in the contest. Rodriguez has looked incredibly sharp in each of his first two starts since returning from Triple-A and should be owned in all mixed leagues at this point for Wednesday's matchup against the Tigers.

Eduardo Rodriguez allowed a lone run over seven innings as the Red Sox topped the Yankees 5-2 on Saturday.

Rodriguez was in command all afternoon, allowing just four hits -- including a Brett Gardner solo home run -- and walking two. He registered just one strikeout, which came in his final inning of work, but his dominance wasn't in question. It was a promising showing from the 23-year-old, who was making his first start for the club since his June 27 demotion. Healthy and effective, Rodriguez should stay in the Sox' rotation this time around. His next turn will come Friday against the Twins.

Red Sox recalled LHP Eduardo Rodriguez from Triple-A Pawtucket.

Rodriguez will start Boston's first game out of the All-Star break Friday night against the rival Yankees. He owns a brutal 8.59 ERA in six starts this year at the major league level, but the young southpaw is healthier now after battling a knee injury all spring and his numbers have been very good at Triple-A. E-Rod is worth a shot in deeper formats under the hope that he can return to his 2015 big-league form.

The Red Sox will recall Eduardo Rodriguez to start on Friday against the Yankees in their first game after the All-Star break.

Rodriguez threw seven shutout innings in his first start back at Triple-A Pawtucket but then allowed two runs over just three frames in his last start. He's posted an 8.59 ERA through six starts this season with the big club and can't be trusted in fantasy leagues.
Jul 10 - 11:23 AM

Red Sox optioned LHP Eduardo Rodriguez to Triple-A Pawtucket.

Rodriguez got the boot after he was torched for nine runs on 11 hits (including two home runs) and one walk over 2 2/3 innings Monday against the Rays. He also heard an earful from veteran second baseman Dustin Pedroia. The southpaw has an ugly 8.59 ERA through six starts this season and needs to do better before earning another opportunity. It's unclear where the Red Sox will go from here in their rotation, but Aaron Wilkerson is a possibility to be called up from the minors, at least as a stopgap option.
Jun 27 - 11:27 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez yielded four runs -- three earned -- in six innings Wednesday in a no-decision against the White Sox.

Rodriguez showed his best velocity of the year to date and struck out seven in his six frames, but he gave up a two-run homer and a couple of doubles. His fantasy upside still seems fairly limited at this point, but at least he did earn himself another start tonight.
Jun 22 - 11:13 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Eduardo Rodriguez will stay in the starting rotation despite a poor effort Thursday against the Orioles.

E-Rod hasn't been fooling anyone this year. In four starts, he carries a 6.97 ERA with an ugly 1.60 WHIP. Opponents have hit .289 against him with six homers in only 83 at-bats. Thursday's outing may have been his worst yet. The Orioles punished him for eight hits and five runs in only 4 1/3 innings as E-Rod took his second loss of the season. Manager John Farrell held what appeared to be a tense closed door meeting with Rodriguez after the game. President of operations Dave Dombrowski and pitching coach Carl Willis were also in the meeting. Rodriguez will be on a very short leash next time out against the White Sox.
Jun 16 - 11:23 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez allowed five runs over 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Orioles on Thursday.

Rodriguez gave up a home run among his eight hits allowed, and he also walked two in what was his worst start of four this year. It's been pretty bumpy for the 23-year-old since he returned in late May from a knee injury, as he's now 1-2 with a 6.97 ERA and 1.60 WHIP in four starts. The Red Sox are counting on Rodriguez to be a strong contributor this year, and they'll look for better things Tuesday against the White Sox.
Jun 16 - 11:17 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez gave up four earned runs in 4 2/3 innings Saturday in a no-decision against the Twins.

Boston's offense plated 15 runs, with reliever Heath Hembree claiming the win. Rodriguez gave up a three-run homer to Kurt Suzuki in the bottom of the fourth -- only Suzuki's second home run of the year -- before yielding a run-scoring sacrifice fly to Trevor Plouffe in the bottom of the fifth. E-Rod has a disappointing 6.06 ERA through three starts and should probably be benched in fantasy leagues until he works off the rust. A home start against the Mariners is next.
Jun 11 - 6:01 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez struggled to keep the ball in the park in Sunday's 5-4 loss to the Blue Jays, yielding four homers and five total runs over 5 2/3 innings.

Rodriguez did not strike out a batter on the afternoon. Jose Bautista got the home run derby started in the first inning, swatting a solo dinger. Darwin Barney, Edwin Encarnacion and Russell Martin would all add taters of their own before Rodriguez exited stage left in the sixth inning. Through his first two starts of the season -- a spring training knee injury kept him on the shelf until the very end of May -- the 23-year-old southpaw has allowed seven runs over 11 2/3 innings. The youngster will look to bounce back from Sunday's homer-happy day in a road date with the Twins next time out.
Jun 5 - 4:36 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez pitched well in his season debut, holding the Orioles to two runs over six innings in a 6-2 victory.

He yielded six hits, struck out three and didn't walk anyone. Rodriguez's velocity was sitting in the low-90s, which is what it was at during his rehab assignment. That's a few mph slower than what he was throwing last season, although the hope, obviously, is that he'll eventually pick up a few ticks on his heater. All in all, though, it was a nice showing in a tough first assignment for the young southpaw. Rodriguez will get the Blue Jays on Sunday.
May 31 - 11:00 PM

Red Sox activated LHP Eduardo Rodriguez from the 15-day disabled list.

Rodriguez, who injured his knee during spring training, will finally make his season debut Tuesday against the Orioles. The 23-year-old tossed seven innings of one-run ball with a 7/1 K/BB ratio in his final minor league rehab start last week. He showed some promise as a rookie last season, but most fantasy owners can afford to see how he fares for his first start or two before making him active.

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will be activated from the disabled list to make his season debut on Tuesday in Baltimore.

Clay Buchholz is headed to the bullpen. Rodriguez had a mini-setback with his right knee last week, but he returned to throw seven innings of one-run ball for Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday. Fantasy owners should probably give him a start or two to get his feet wet.
May 27 - 5:15 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) is next scheduled to make a rehab start with Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday.

Rodriguez turned in nice work in Tuesday's rehab outing at Triple-A, tossing seven innings and allowing just one run. The 23-year-old southpaw initially hit the disabled list prior to Opening Day with a right patella subluxation. He had a setback in his recovery that forced him to miss one rehab start earlier this month, but it appears that the renewed soreness in the knee has dissipated. There is no concrete date for him to join the Red Sox rotation at this point, but early-June will become realistic if he continues to pitch well on the farm.
