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 in his six frames. 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.

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.

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.

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.
May 31 - 10:35 AM

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.
May 25 - 4:47 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) fired seven innings of one-run ball Tuesday in a rehab start at Triple-A Pawtucket.

Rodriguez struck out seven, walked none, and surrendered only four hits over his seven impressive frames. It was a very encouraging outing from the 23-year-old left-hander, who had to be scratched from a rehab start last week due to renewed soreness in his injured right knee. He's back on track now, though there's no exact timetable for his 2016 debut in Boston.
May 25 - 9:13 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will resume his rehab assignment with Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday.

Rodriguez was scratched from a start last week due to renewed soreness in his right knee, but it appears it was just a minor setback. He could potentially be ready to rejoin the Red Sox' rotation sometime next month.
May 22 - 11:23 AM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said during an appearance on WEEI on Tuesday that Eduardo Rodriguez will miss his next minor league rehab start due to knee soreness.

Uh oh. Rodriguez suffered a right patella subluxation early on in spring training, so it's troubling that he's still having issues. The 23-year-old has been a disappointment during his minor league rehab assignment thus far, posting a 4.29 ERA and 10/4 K/BB ratio in 21 innings over four starts. The Red Sox wanted to see better results and velocity before bringing him back and this setback obviously pushes things back even further.
May 17 - 2:48 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Sunday that the club would "still like to see an uptick in performance in general" before Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) is activated from the disabled list.

Farrell added that he believes Rodriguez "might still be a little reserved" when it comes to his knee. The left-hander holds a 4.29 ERA and 10/4 K/BB ratio over 21 innings in his four rehab starts with Triple-A Pawtucket. He'll make at least one more start in the minors before being re-evaluated.
May 15 - 11:27 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) allowed two runs on seven hits over 5 2/3 innings in his latest rehab start with Triple-A Pawtucket on Saturday.

Rodriguez didn't walk anyone, but he hit a batter, struck out just three and needed 100 pitches to cover the 5 2/3 frames. The lefty has walked just four over 21 rehab innings but has also struck out only 10. Rodriguez was reportedly sitting in the low 90s Saturday and touching 95 mph. It's unclear whether Saturday's rehab start will be his last or if the Red Sox will ask him to make another one before rejoining their rotation.
May 15 - 9:01 AM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Monday that Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will make at least one more minor league rehab start.

Rodriguez owns a 4.70 ERA and 7/4 K/BB ratio in 15 1/3 innings over his first three rehab outings with Triple-A Pawtucket. There was some chatter about him possibly rejoining the Red Sox this weekend, but the club isn't satisfied with his arm strength and velocity quite yet. He has some more work to do.
