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. Jul 17 - 10:44 PM

Red Sox activated LHP Eduardo Rodriguez from the 10-day disabled list.

Rodriguez will make his return to the Red Sox' rotation on Monday versus the Blue Jays after missing nearly seven weeks with a right knee subluxation. It's possible the nagging issue will require offseason surgery, but for now Rodriguez will try to pitch through it.
Jul 17 - 5:44 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) allowed one run over 6 1/3 innings Sunday in his latest rehab start with Triple-A Pawtucket.

It was his most impressive appearance thus far. Rodriguez, out since the start of June with a recurring knee issue, allowed six hits while walking none and striking out seven. The southpaw is due to make his return to Boston's rotation next Monday against the Blue Jays.
Jul 10 - 10:52 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will return to the Red Sox rotation on July 17 against the Blue Jays.

That will be the fifth game of the second half. Doug Fister will remain in the rotation for at least one turn as well, starting against the Blue Jays on July 18.
Jul 8 - 2:27 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will make his final rehab start Sunday for Triple-A Pawtucket.

Rodriguez could be summoned to the big leagues if Boston needs an emergency fill-in, but right now the plan is for him to make one more start in Pawtucket before joining the Red Sox after the All-Star break. E-Rod has posted a lousy 9.00 ERA over his first two rehab outings, one with Pawtucket and the other with Double-A Portland. He'll knock Doug Fister out of the rotation upon his return.
Jul 6 - 5:10 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) allowed four earned runs over four innings Tuesday in a rehab start with Triple-A Pawtucket.

He walked five and gave up four hits across his 88 pitches. Rodriguez has now allowed 10 runs -- nine earned -- over seven rehab frames and won't return to the Red Sox rotation until sometime after the All-Star break.
Jul 4 - 8:45 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will not rejoin the Red Sox' rotation before the All-Star break.

It's possible he could return as a reliever next weekend, or he might make a third rehab start. Rodriguez was rocked for nine hits and six runs in his first rehab start last Thursday for Double-A Portland. He'll make his second rehab start Tuesday for Triple-A Pawtucket. The left-hander has been out since early June with a right knee subluxation.
Jul 3 - 6:50 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will make another rehab start for Triple-A Pawtucket on Tuesday.

He's hoping for a much smoother outing after getting blown up for nine hits and six runs in his first rehab start Thursday for Double-A Portland. If E-Rod can avoid setbacks, he could return for Boston's first-half finale next Sunday against Tampa Bay.
Jul 1 - 5:29 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) was lit up for nine hits and six runs (five earned) over three sluggish innings Thursday in a minor league rehab start for Double-A Portland.

He struck out three and didn't walk anyone while throwing 46 of his 69 pitches for strikes. The hope was that Rodriguez will only need one rehab start but he'll probably need at least one more after Thursday's poor showing. NESN analyst and former pitcher Tim Wakefield felt Rodriguez looked a bit tentative, which is something he'll have to correct before the Red Sox reinsert him into their starting rotation.
Jun 29 - 11:57 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will begin a minor league rehab assignment with Double-A Portland on Thursday.

Rodriguez is expected to throw about 75-80 pitches. He could be activated after only one start, though it's not a given. Rodriguez logged 68 pitches during a simulated game on Saturday. The Red Sox have used a variety of starters in his absence including Brian Johnson, Hector Velazquez and now Doug Fister.
Jun 24 - 4:58 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) could begin a rehab assignment as soon as June 29.

Rodriguez will face hitters on Saturday and should be cleared to make a rehab start five days after that if all goes well. The left-hander has been out nearly all month with a recurring knee issue, but the hope is that he'll be ready to rejoin the Red Sox' rotation by the All-Star break.
Jun 23 - 4:33 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will face hitters later this week.

Rodriguez got through a bullpen session last week with no issues and is ready to take the next step. Assuming the session against hitters goes well, he'll then be cleared for a rehab assignment. The left-hander is tracking toward an early July return if he can avoid a setback.
Jun 19 - 6:31 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) completed a 33-pitch bullpen session on Thursday.

Beat writer Pete Abraham of the Boston Globe said Rodriguez was "ecstatic" after his session. Rodriguez was expected to resume agility drills before throwing again but instead he did it the other way around. E-Rod will need at least one rehab start before he's ready to rejoin the starting rotation. The Red Sox could sure use him now that Brian Johnson (shoulder) is also on the shelf.
Jun 15 - 5:59 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will resume throwing on flat ground within the next few days.

Red Sox manager John Farrell denied a report that Dr. James Andrews recommended 3-4 weeks of rest for Rodriguez, but the left-hander figures to miss the rest of June anyway. Rodriguez landed on the disabled list last week with a right knee subluxation. He's had knee issues since last spring.

Jun 6 - 4:47 PM

Evan Drellich of CSN New England reports that Dr. James Andrews has recommended that Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) be shut down for 3-4 weeks.

The hope is that Rodriguez's right knee would feel better after the shutdown period and he'd be able to avoid surgery, but a season-ending operation would be on the table if he doesn't recover as hoped. If he does eventually go under the knife, the recovery period would be 5-6 months. Even if he successfully rehabs, it looks like we won't see Rodriguez until at least late July at the earliest. Rodriguez is dealing with a right knee subluxation, which is a fancy way of saying he has a dislocated kneecap. It's something that's bothered him a few times off and on since last season. Brian Johnson is in line to fill Rodriguez's spot in the Red Sox' rotation, assuming his ailing hamstring is well enough.
