Eduardo Rodriguez allowed two runs on three hits over six innings in Thursday's win over the Angels.
Rodriguez wasn't as crisp as he could have been -- he issued a trio of walks to go against five strikeouts -- but this was a fine performance on the whole. Zack Cozart knocked him for an RBI single in the second inning and Chris Young cracked him for a solo home run in the fifth inning, but otherwise, he was able to keep out of major trouble. This start out the way, Rodriguez will now bring a 3.45 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 20/7 K/BB ratio (15 2/3 innings) into a road date with the Blue Jays in his next scheduled outing. Apr 20 - 1:45 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez notched his first win of the season after holding the Orioles to one run over six innings on Friday.

Rodriguez was shaky in his season debut against the Rays last Sunday, but he was in control for this one. The southpaw held the Orioles to five hits and two walks, with the lone run scoring on a sacrifice fly from Adam Jones in the first inning. Rodriguez fanned eight batters and induced 14 swinging strikes in his 104 pitches. He’s actually the first Boston starter to exceed 99 pitches this season. Rodriguez will try to carry the momentum into a start against the Angels on the road next week.
Apr 14 - 12:48 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) gave up three runs in 3 2/3 innings on Sunday against the Rays in his first start of the 2018 season.

Rodriguez struggled with command in his first start with two walks, but he showed his ability to miss bats with seven strikeouts. It wasn't a spectacular start -- especially considering who he was facing -- but the important thing is he came out of the effort healthy. He'll go again against the Orioles this week, with the date still to be determined.
Apr 8 - 5:10 PM

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

Rodriguez will make his season debut on Sunday versus the Rays after successfully recovering from last October's right knee surgery. His pitch count would figure to be relatively limited in this one, but he still makes for a decent start against a struggling Rays offense.
Apr 8 - 9:51 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will start Sunday against the Rays.

It will be his first big league start since undergoing knee surgery in October. Rodriguez pitched to a disappointing 4.19 ERA last season but impressed with a 9.83 K/9. Even if his pitch count is somewhat limited, E-Rod should be a solid streaming option at home against a Rays team that is currently riding a six-game losing streak.
Apr 5 - 6:50 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) could join the Red Sox rotation on Sunday.

He'd be facing off against the Rays at home in his season debut -- an advantageous matchup for fantasy purposes. Rodriguez underwent patellofemoral ligament reconstruction on his right knee in October, but he looked pretty good in minor league and simulated games this spring. The 24-year-old left-hander posted a useful 4.19 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and 150 strikeouts over 137 1/3 innings last season.
Apr 5 - 11:24 AM

Red Sox placed LHP Eduardo Rodriguez on the 10-day disabled list with a right knee injury.

Another expected move is now official. Rodriguez underwent patellofemoral ligament reconstruction on his right knee in October, and is still in the process of getting stretched out. It sounds like he could be ready by mid-April if all goes well.
Mar 26 - 1:17 PM

Red Sox' manager Alex Cora confirmed Saturday that Eduardo Rodriguez and Drew Pomeranz would each open the regular season on the 10-day disabled list.

No word yet on who will get the final rotation spot to begin the season, but it seems like Hector Velazquez is the most likely candidate.
Mar 24 - 10:49 AM

Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Wednesday that there is a "less than 50 percent" chance Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will start the team's fourth regular-season game.

It's kind of remarkable that it's even a consideration given that Rodriguez underwent major knee surgery last October. He's made great progress, but mid-April is a much safer target for his 2018 debut. Hector Velasquez will probably open as Boston's No. 4 starter, with Brian Johnson in the No. 5 spot. Chris Sale, David Price, and Rick Porcello -- in that order -- will work the first three games of the season for the Red Sox.
Mar 21 - 10:12 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) threw 3 1/3 innings in a minor league game Tuesday in Red Sox camp.

Rodriguez gave up three runs on five hits and a walk, but the important thing is that he made it through the 62-pitch outing without any physical concerns. The 24-year-old left-hander underwent surgery on his right knee last October. He should be ready to join the Red Sox rotation sometime in April.
Mar 20 - 2:28 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) is expected to pitch in a minor league game next Tuesday.

Rodriguez made it through a successful three-inning round of live batting practice on Thursday morning in Red Sox camp. The 24-year-old left-hander isn't going to be rushed coming off October knee surgery, but it seems possible that he could be ready to join the Red Sox rotation around the middle of April. Rodriguez posted a 4.19 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and 150/50 K/BB ratio in 137 1/3 innings last season for Boston.
Mar 15 - 11:49 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) is scheduled to throw three innings of live batting practice on Thursday.

If that goes well, Rodriguez could make his Grapefruit League debut early next week. The 24-year-old left-hander is still ticketed for the disabled list to open the 2018 regular season, but he's made relatively swift progress from October knee surgery and might be an option for the Red Sox rotation around mid-April.
Mar 15 - 10:20 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) is nearing live batting practice sessions.

Rodriguez will open the 2018 season on the disabled list following October knee surgery, but he should be ready to join the Red Sox rotation around the end of April. The 24-year-old left-hander registered a 4.19 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and 150/50 K/BB ratio in 137 1/3 innings last season.
Mar 8 - 10:30 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) threw a successful bullpen on Wednesday.

It's the first time that Rodriguez has been able to throw off a mound since undergoing surgery on his right knee in October. He'll now throw a 45-pitch bullpen on Saturday, and if there are no issues there, he could face live hitters for the first time shortly after. His ETA is still late April, but further progress could push his timeline up.
Feb 28 - 8:50 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) could join the Red Sox rotation by the end of April.

That's assuming he doesn't have any setbacks in his recovery from last October's right knee patellofemoral ligament reconstruction. It's been so far, so good, as Rodriguez has been long-tossing and says his knee feels "completely different." The hope is that he'll be ready for Grapefruit League action sometime in March before beginning a short rehab assignment.
