Red Sox left-handed pitching prospect Eduardo Rodriguez tossed six shutout innings for Double-A Portland on Friday, striking out nine while scattering three hits and three walks.

Rodriguez's prospect status has spiked over the past year, and has gone from being viewed as a command/control lefty with the potential to be a back-of-the-rotation starter to a being viewed as a potential No. 3 starter. He was acquired for lefty reliever Andrew Miller on July 31. Rodriguez should spend the rest of the season with Double-A Portland, is a big part of the next wave of prospect pitchers amassed by GM Ben Cherington, and should be able to contributing at the big league level in 2015.

Red Sox acquired LHP Eduardo Rodriguez from the Orioles for LHP Andrew Miller.

Ben Cherington continues to have an outstanding day. Boston held out for a top prospect in Miller negotiations, and they finally got one from a rival. Rodriguez was recently ranked by as Baltimore's No. 3 prospect. "Initially more of a command-and-control lefty, Rodriguez has grown into his lanky frame and has seen his velocity jump as a result," the site's scouting report reads. "He now throws his fastball in the low 90s, with good sink and movement. Rodriguez pairs his fastball with a hard changeup and a tight slider, both of which grade out as above-average offerings." Rodriguez projects as a middle-of-the rotation starter.

According to Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun, the Orioles are unlikely to trade away Eduardo Rodriguez unless they are "blown away" by a potential deal.

The club still believes that the 20-year-old southpaw is a big part of their future. He's expected to begin the 2014 campaign at Double-A Bowie, and it's not unthinkable that he could debut with the Orioles at some point before the end of the season.

Orioles prospect Eduardo Rodriguez excelled in Saturday's Arizona Fall League title game, allowing just two hits over three scoreless innings as Surprise topped Mesa 2-0.

Rodriguez fanned four without walking a batter on the afternoon, throwing 30 of his 42 pitches for strikes. It had been a rough Fall season for him up until that point, entering play with a 5.52 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 16/6 K/BB ratio over 14 2/3 innings. The 20-year-old southpaw is expected to begin the open the year back at Double-A Bowie, but could become an option for the O's later in the season.
