Date:

Eduardo Rodriguez pitched four scoreless innings and struck out six Friday against the Astros.

Rodriguez opened the fifth, but he was replaced after a leadoff single. Rodriguez has a 2.08 ERA and 13 strikeouts in 13 innings this spring. He's going to try to make it very difficult on the Red Sox to take him out of the rotation once David Price comes back.
Mar 17 - 5:46 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez declined a request to pitch for Venezuela in the second round of the World Baseball Classic.

It's probably for the best. Rodriguez should begin the year with a rotation spot if healthy, but he's had knee problems and David Price is already slated to miss some time with an elbow injury. It's unclear if he'd participate in the event that Venezuela advances to the championship round, but the Red Sox would probably prefer if he didn't at this point.
Mar 15 - 12:00 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez pitched four innings of one-run ball Sunday against the Phillies.

Rodriguez struck out three and walked one. He's caught up quickly after being held back by his knee at the beginning of spring training. Odds are that he'll open up in the rotation, with David Price likely to spend a little time on the DL. It's possible Rodriguez will be shuffled in and out a couple of times before settling into the rotation for good.
Mar 12 - 4:19 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez was perfect for two innings against the Rays in his spring debut Thursday.

Rodriguez is making his way back from a knee injury he aggravated in winter ball. David Price's injury figures to put Rodriguez back into Boston's rotation, making him an intriguing choice at the end of mixed-league drafts.
Mar 2 - 4:42 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) will make his Grapefruit League debut on Thursday.

The Red Sox have eased Rodriguez into action after he tweaked his right knee back in December while pitching in the Venezuelan Winter League, but he didn't have issues in a bullpen session on Saturday. The young southpaw will compete with Steven Wright and Drew Pomeranz for one of the final two spots in Boston's rotation this spring.

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) made it through a live batting practice session without any issues on Saturday.

It's the first live session that he's had this spring and a big step in the right direction for the southpaw. The next step is for him to complete a side session early in the week and if all goes well he'll make his Grapefruit League debut on Thursday against the Rays. Rodriguez is locked in a battle with Steven Wright and Drew Pomeranz for the final two spots in the club's Opening Day rotation.

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) is scheduled to throw live batting practice on Saturday.

It'll be a big step in the right direction for the young left-hander, who tweaked his troublesome right knee in December while pitching in the Venezuelan Winter League. Rodriguez is battling with Drew Pomeranz and Steven Wright for the final two spots in the Red Sox rotation, and he's about a week ahead of the competition at the moment.
Feb 23 - 9:53 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) threw a "controlled" bullpen session on Tuesday.

While it doesn't sound like he was throwing at 100 percent, it was his first time pitching from a mound since he tweaked his knee in winter ball back in December. Red Sox manager John Farrell called it a "step in the right direction." If all goes well, the southpaw will compete with Drew Pomeranz and Steven Wright for one of the final two rotation spots.

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) is scheduled to throw off a mound on Tuesday.

Rodriguez tweaked his right knee while pitching in the Venezuelan Winter League back in December, but fortunately it's not as serious as the injury he suffered last spring. He'll compete with Drew Pomeranz and Steven Wright for the final two spots in the rotation. All three come with health questions, so it will take some time to see how things shake out.
Feb 14 - 1:39 PM

Red Sox president Dave Dombrowski said Tuesday that the final two spots in the rotation are an "open competition."

Chris Sale, David Price, and Rick Porcello are locks for the first three spots in the starting rotation, but Eduardo Rodriguez, Drew Pomeranz, and Steven Wright will compete for the final two spots. All three have question marks attached, but Pomeranz and Wright are the logical favorites, as Rodriguez still has options remaining.
Feb 7 - 1:50 PM

Red Sox president Dave Dombrowski doesn't expect Eduardo Rodriguez to pitch in the upcoming World Baseball Classic.

Rodriguez suffered a minor knee injury while playing winter ball but should be fine for the start of spring training. E-Rod hasn't completely shut the door on representing his native Venezuela in the WBC, telling reporters Saturday, "If I can, I'll go." Rodriguez is competing with Steven Wright and Drew Pomeranz for one of the last two spots in Boston's starting rotation.
Jan 21 - 5:39 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) is walking without pain and is expected to be ready for spring training.

Rodriguez recently tweaked his right knee when he slipped on a wet mound in the Venezuelan Winter League. It's the very same knee which delayed his start to the 2016 season. The Red Sox are planning for Rodriguez to come to Boston for an examination, but no date has been set and team president Dave Dombrowski said that there's "no sense of urgency." Assuming all goes well, Rodriguez will compete for a rotation spot in the spring.
Jan 3 - 2:43 PM

Red Sox president Dave Dombrowski said Thursday that he's not overly concerned about Eduardo Rodriguez's latest right knee injury.

Rodriguez tweaked the troublesome knee when he slipped on a wet mound in the Venezuelan Winter League on Tuesday, but he has not been summoned back to Boston for an exam. Still, it's likely to end his run in winter ball. Rodriguez posted a disappointing 4.71 ERA and 100/40 K/BB ratio in 107 innings last season for the Red Sox after putting up a 3.85 ERA in 2015. He's a high-risk, high-reward fantasy gamble for 2017.

It's the same knee that he injured during spring training, but the good news is that it doesn't appear to be serious. Rodriguez posted a 4.71 ERA and 100/40 K/BB ratio in 107 innings across 20 starts this past season and will slot behind Chris Sale, David Price, and Rick Porcello in Boston's rotation in 2017.
