Eduardo Rodriguez held the Yankees to two runs (one earned) in five innings in a win on Monday.
Rodriguez allowed 10 base runners on seven hits and three walks while striking out four. Catcher's interference and a Pablo Sandoval error helped the Yankees score a run in the first, and Didi Gregorius added an RBI single in the fourth. The lefty has shown promise from time to time but has overall been mediocre as he has a 4.25 ERA with a 1.27 WHIP and a 73/30 K/BB ratio over 97 1/3 innings. Rodriguez will take the hill at home against the Phillies next. Aug 31 - 11:00 PM

Date:

Eduardo Rodriguez will have his next turn in the rotation skipped as a means to manage his workload.

Rodriguez has thrown 140 2/3 innings so far this season between the majors and minors which is nearly 20 frames below his career high of 159 2/3 in 2013. The Red Sox plan to skip the left-hander just the one time and will not shut him down.
Aug 25 - 6:27 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez held the Indians to a lone run over eight innings of work to earn the win on Tuesday.

Rodriguez scattered six hits, walked none, and struck out five. Michael Brantley provided the Indians their only run when he took the lefty yard in the seventh inning. The 22-year-old has been inconsistent in his 15 starts, carrying a 4.48 ERA with a 1.24 WHIP and a 68/27 K/BB ratio over 86 1/3 innings. Rodriguez will deal with the Royals at home in his next outing.

Eduardo Rodriguez was knocked around by the Marlins on Wednesday, allowing eight runs over five innings in a loss.

Rodriguez allowed a leadoff home run to Dee Gordon -- Dee Gordon! -- and things didn't much better from there. The Marlins tacked on three more runs in the second inning before the wheels fell completely off in a 10-run sixth inning. Rodriguez was responsible for just four of those, but the damage was done. He yielded nine hits and a walk in total while striking out just two. It's been up and down for the 22-year-old in his first go-round in the majors, but he's 6-5 with a 4.83 ERA and 1.29 WHIP after Wednesday's debacle. The southpaw will try to get back on track Tuesday against the Indians.
Aug 12 - 7:22 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez pitched seven innings of two-run ball in a loss to the Yankees.

It was a defeat, but this was still another encouraging outing from Rodriguez. He's been inconsistent, but this makes nine of 13 starts in which he's allowed two runs or fewer. He should only get better, assuming continued health.
Aug 6 - 10:20 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez yielded three runs over five innings Friday in a no-decision against the Rays.

Rodriguez really struggled with his control, walking a career-high four batters while throwing just 64 out of 110 pitches for strikes. But he managed to avoid major damage and ultimately kept the Red Sox in the ballgame. The 22-year-old has had some ups and downs during his rookie season and owns a 4.34 ERA and 56/24 K/BB ratio in 66 1/3 innings across 12 starts. He'll get the Yankees next week on the road.
Jul 31 - 11:03 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez was dominant in Sunday's victory over the Tigers, allowing just one run on three hits over seven strong innings.

The 22-year-old southpaw punched out six on the evening while walking just one. The only blemish on his night was a solo homer off the bat of Nick Castellanos in the fifth inning. He certainly needed an outing like this after getting blasted for seven runs by the Angels in his last outing. He'll carry a 4.26 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 52/20 K/BB ratio into Friday's matchup against the Rays.
Jul 26 - 11:38 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez was ripped to shreds by the Angels in the first game of Monday's doubleheader, surrendering seven runs in 1 2/3 innings.

The Halos used three singles, a walk, a double, and two home runs to plate seven runs in the second inning, chasing Rodriguez with two outs in the frame. Rodriguez had also walked two in the first inning but escaped without any damage. It was, needless to say, an awful day for the young lefty. He'll bring a 4.64 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and a 46/19 K/BB ratio over 54 1/3 innings into a home start against the Tigers.
Jul 20 - 8:22 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez will start the first game of Monday's doubleheader against the Angels.

He had been scheduled to toe the slab on Sunday, but with the game being rained out he gets pushed back a day. Steven Wright will take the mound in the second game.
Jul 19 - 10:44 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez spun 6 1/3 quality innings Saturday in a win over the Yankees.

He held the Bombers to five hits and two runs. The 22-year-old is the youngest Red Sox starter to beat New York since Roger Clemens in 1984. Through his first nine starts, Rodriguez is 5-2 with a respectable 3.59 ERA. Opponents have hit just .226 against the left-hander this season.
Jul 11 - 10:53 PM

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.
