Eduardo Rodriguez held the Blue Jays to one run in six innings to earn the win on Tuesday.
The lone run came around in the fourth inning on Chris Colabello's RBI single. It was one of only four hits Rodriguez allowed on the evening along with two walks and four strikeouts. It was a nice bounce-back effort as he was shelled in his previous outing. The rookie carries a 3.92 ERA with a 1.11 WHIP and a 36/13 K/BB ratio over 41 1/3 innings. He'll match up with the Astros in a home start next. Jun 30 - 10:17 PM

Red Sox pitching coach Carl Willis said it was "borderline obvious" that Eduardo Rodriguez was tipping his pitches when out of the stretch versus the Orioles last Thursday.

"He'd been so good out of the windup," Willis said. "Going back and looking at the pitches he executed from the stretch, they were still quality pitches. It's safe to say that there's a good likelihood that could have had something to do with it." Willis understandably declined to reveal details, but the conclusion makes sense given how dominant Rodriguez has been for much of his time with the Red Sox. He allowed six runs -- all coming in the fourth inning -- against the O's. Assuming Rodriguez has the issue fixed, it bodes well for him going forward. The lefty does have a tough matchup against the Blue Jays on Tuesday.
Jun 29 - 5:53 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez was knocked around by the Orioles, taking a loss after giving up six runs in 3 2/3 innings of work on Thursday.

All six runs came in the fourth inning, when the Orioles strung together seven consecutive hits with one out. The barrage included four singles, two doubles, and a two-run Matt Wieters home run. Rodriguez has been shelled in two of his last three outings, but some bumps in the road are to be expected with the 22-year-old rookie. He'll bring a 4.33 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, and 32/11 K/BB ratio in 35 1/3 innings into a start in Toronto against the Blue Jays next week. With the way Rodriguez has been pitching and the way the Jays have been hitting, it might be wise for fantasy owners to let the lefty sit that one out.
Jun 25 - 4:48 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez held the Royals to one run over 6 1/3 innings on Friday as part of a 7-3 victory.

The only run scored on an RBI double from Alcides Escobar in the fifth. Rodriguez was solid otherwise, allowing six hits in all while walking one and striking out five. He also hit a batter. It was nice to see after he was roughed up last time out. The 22-year-old owns a 3.13 ERA and 27/11 K/BB ratio in 31 2/3 innings over his first five starts in the majors. He'll face the Orioles at home next time out.
Jun 20 - 12:21 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez's third start in the majors was a complete disaster, as he surrendered nine runs on eight hits over 4 2/3 innings in Sunday's 13-5 loss to the Blue Jays.

Rodriguez had allowed just one run through his first 20 2/3 innings, but he couldn't keep that roll going against the Blue Jays. It all collapsed in the fourth inning, when he allowed six runs, three coming in on a homer by light-hitting infielder Ryan Goins. Rodriguez trotted back out for the fifth inning and allowed three more runs before being relieved of duty. For the game, he struck out one, walked three and now carries a 1.03 WHIP and 22/10 K/BB ratio over 25 1/3 innings. Thanks to the shellacking, the young southpaw's ERA jumped from 0.44 to 3.55. It will be interesting to see how Rodriguez bounces back from what was, by far, his most rocky start in the bigs to this point. His next start figures to be a tough test, as Rodriguez will head on the road to face the Royals.
Jun 14 - 4:52 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez continued to excel on Tuesday, firing six shutout innings against the Orioles, but took a no-decision as the Red Sox narrowly lost.

Rodriguez, a highly-regarded pitching prospect, made his major league debut on May 28 and has dominated over three starts. On Tuesday, he limited the Orioles to three hits (all singles) and three walks while fanning seven. Rodriguez was a bit inefficient, needing 102 pitches, but that's a nitpicky criticism. The lefty remains 2-0 but lowered his ERA to 0.44 with a 0.73 WHIP and a 21/7 K/BB ratio over 20 2/3 innings. Rodriguez will do battle with a tough Blue Jays lineup at home in his next start.
Jun 9 - 10:42 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez was terrific again Wednesday, striking out seven across seven innings of one-run ball in a 6-3 win over the Twins.

Brian Dozier took Rodriguez deep in the third inning, but he yielded just one single otherwise and matched his 7/2 K/BB ratio from his major league debut last week. The left-hander has been hugely impressive in his first two outings, yielding just one run and five hits across 14 2/3 frames. He'll try to keep rolling the next time out in Baltimore.
Jun 3 - 4:25 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez will start next Wednesday against the Twins.

Rodriguez was electric in his major league debut Thursday, spinning 7 2/3 shutout innings against the Rangers with seven strikeouts, two walks and just three hits allowed. The Red Sox will go with six starters for at least one more turn through the rotation, but Rodriguez isn't going anywhere as long as he keeps pitching well.
May 29 - 6:00 PM

John Farrell said after Thursday's masterpiece in his major league debut that he certainly expects Eduardo Rodriguez to remain in the Red Sox rotation.

If that's the case, he's a very interesting addition in all mixed leagues. The 22-year-old had been dominant over eight starts at Triple-A Pawtucket and carried that over to his big league debut on Thursday where he fired 7 2/3 shutout innings against the Rangers.
May 28 - 11:30 PM

In his major league debut, Eduardo Rodriguez hurled 7 2/3 scoreless innings against the Rangers for a victory Thursday.

It seemed like Rodriguez would be done after seven, especially after an eighth inning that included two Rangers pitching changes and three Red Sox runs. However, he did come back out and strike out the next two batters he faced before giving up a walk and a single to get removed. It was just the third hit off him off the night. Rodriguez wasn't guaranteed anything more than the spot start going in, but he needs to be in the Red Sox rotation after this. He's worth picking up in mixed leagues.
May 28 - 11:18 PM

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

Rodriguez will be making his major league debut when he starts Thursday against the Rangers. It's just being called a spot start, designed to give Boston's other starters an extra day of rest, but Joe Kelly's rotation spot is obviously vulnerable right now. Rodriguez, 22, had a 2.98 ERA and 44/7 K/BB ratio over his first 48 1/3 innings this season in Triple-A.
May 28 - 4:10 PM

Tim Britton of the Providence Journal reports that the Red Sox are expected to promote pitching prospect Eduardo Rodriguez.

He'll get the ball on Thursday in Texas in what is expected to be just a spot start, but Rodriguez could certainly wind up getting a long-term look at some point. Ranked prior to the season by Baseball America as the No. 59 prospect in baseball, Rodriguez boasts a 2.98 ERA and 44/7 K/BB ratio over 48 1/3 innings at Triple-A Pawucket this season. He just turned 22 in April.
May 27 - 11:31 AM

Red Sox prospect LHP Eduardo Rodriguez allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits in five innings on Wednesday for Triple-A Pawtucket.

He issued one walk and struck out five in the outing, throwing 52 of 78 pitches for strikes. Rodriguez, who was acquired from the Orioles last summer in the Andrew Miller trade, has been great through his first six starts for Pawtucket, posting a 2.86 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 34/5 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 34 2/3 innings. The 22-year-old left-hander seemingly has picked up where he left off in 2014, when he registered a 0.96 ERA and fanned 39 batters in 37 1/3 innings after joining Double-A Portland in early August. Boston’s starting rotation has fared better of late, but it’s only a matter of time until Rodriguez gets a shot in the big leagues.
May 14 - 1:58 PM

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

Rodriguez was excellent this spring, allowing one run while posting a 9/0 K/BB ratio across 7 2/3 innings. Slated to turn 22 just after Opening Day, the left-hander will be getting his first taste of Triple-A ball in 2015.
Mar 20 - 9:23 AM

Facing his former team, Eduardo Rodriguez pitched three perfect innings versus the Orioles on Saturday.

Rodriguez was Boston's return in the Andrew Miller deal last summer. While he struggled some prior to the trade, he's looked like one of the AL's best pitching prospects ever since. He'll likely spend most of this year in Triple-A Pawtucket's rotation, though a summer promotion to the majors is a possibility.
