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

Date:

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.

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.

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.
May 9 - 11:29 PM

Red Sox manager John Farrell said Monday that the club hasn't determined whether Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will require another minor league rehab start.

Rodriguez allowed three runs over 5 2/3 innings Sunday in his third minor league rehab start with Triple-A Pawtucket. Farrell conceded that he's "getting closer," but that they'll get the medical staff's opinion before making a final decision. Sean O'Sullivan will make a spot start Tuesday, but Rodriguez could be ready to slot in from there.
May 9 - 4:48 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) threw 93 pitches in his minor league rehab start with Triple-A Pawtucket on Sunday, surrendering three runs on six hits over 5 2/3 innings.

Now that he has been stretched out this far, it'll be interesting to see if he's deemed ready to rejoin the Red Sox rotation this week, or if they'll run him out at Pawtucket once more first. Expect him back with the big league club at some point next week.
May 8 - 4:29 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) allowed three runs over six innings Tuesday with Triple-A Pawtucket.

But he didn't walk anybody and those three runs came on only five hits. It was a much better outing than his rehab debut with Pawtucket last Thursday, when Rodriguez gave up three runs on six hits and three walks in just 3 2/3 innings. The young left-hander should be a start or two away from returning to Boston.
May 3 - 8:54 PM

According to Pedro Martinez, Eduardo Rodriguez is just starting to build up his leg strength, and as a result could potentially need up to three more minor league rehab starts before he rejoins the Red Sox.

Rodriguez struggled in his first rehab start with Triple-A Pawtucket on Thursday, surrendering three runs on six hits and three walks in 3 2/3 innings. Henry Owens will continue to occupy a spot in the Red Sox rotation until Rodriguez is deemed ready.
Apr 30 - 8:38 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits and three walks over 3 2/3 innings Thursday in his first minor league rehab start with Triple-A Pawtucket.

Rodriguez, who is working his way back from a right patella subluxation, struck out two batters and threw 45 out of 75 pitches for strikes. Coming off the shaky outing, the southpaw still figures to make one or two more starts in the minors before joining the Red Sox. Henry Owens will continue to hold down a rotation spot for now.
Apr 28 - 8:24 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will make his first rehab start at Triple-A Pawtucket on Thursday.

It was supposed to be with High-A Salem, but the Red Sox will have him face some better competition in his rehab debut. Rodriguez landed on the disabled list just before Opening Day after suffering a right patella subluxation at spring training. He should be ready to join the Red Sox rotation in early May and remains a breakout candidate.
Apr 26 - 6:16 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will make his next minor league rehab start with High-A Salem on Thursday.

He'll then join Triple-A Pawtucket for one final start before he's cleared to rejoin the REd Sox. If all goes well, Rodriguez could be cleared for big league action on May 3.
