Eduardo Rodriguez allowed two earned runs, six hits and a walk with nine strikeouts over six innings in a victory in Seattle on Sunday.
Rodriguez threw 70 of his 113 pitches for strikes in the quality start, moving to 9-1 while lowering his ERA to 3.59. He threw first-pitch strikes to 21 of the 25 batters he faced, winning his sixth straight outing. He has also lowered his ERA in each of his past six starts, going from 4.68 on May 15 to just 3.59 after this victory. He'll look to keep it rolling in the right direction in a rematch against Mike Leake and the Mariners at Fenway Park next Saturday. Jun 17 - 9:55 PM

Date:

Eduardo Rodriguez gave up eight hits and walked two but managed to limit the Orioles to two runs over 5 2/3 frames in the Red Sox’ 6-4 win.

Joey Rickard led off the bottom of the first inning with a home run off Rodriguez and the lefty had to pitch out of a two-on, nobody out jam in the second. He mostly settled in after that, getting pulled after yielding a two-out single in the sixth because he was at 109 pitches. Rodriguez has won each of his last five starts, posting a 2.15 ERA over that time. He’ll take on the Mariners in Seattle on Sunday.
Jun 12 - 11:20 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez held the Tigers to one run in 5 1/3 innings and was credited with a win on Wednesday.

He allowed an RBI single to Jose Iglesias in the second inning but the Red Sox' sticks gave him plenty of run support in this one like they usually do. He struck out five, walked one and yielded five hits. It took him 107 pitches to make it into the sixth inning and he will need to be more efficient moving forward. He improves to 7-1 with a 3.68 ERA and 1.20 WHIP in 12 starts.
Jun 7 - 12:42 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez gave up three hits and two runs over 6 2/3 innings Wednesday in the Red Sox’s win over Toronto.

He fanned seven Blue Jays while allowing just one free pass. Rodriguez lost his no-hitter in the fifth on a one-out single by DH Kendrys Morales. An inning later, E-Rod served up a two-run homer to Teoscar Hernandez on a changeup that caught too much of the plate. Seventy of the left-hander’s 100 pitches went for strikes. The 25-year-old has now allowed three runs or fewer in each of his last five starts. He’ll look to extend that streak in his next outing Tuesday against Detroit.
May 30 - 4:44 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez improved to 5-1 after allowing two runs over 5 2/3 innings against the Braves on Friday.

Rodriguez gave up six hits and three walks while fanning seven. He ran into some early trouble, but the Braves were only able to cash in with a two-run double from Nick Markakis in the second. After hitting a bit of a rough patch, the southpaw has allowed three earned runs or fewer in four straight starts, so he’s regaining the trust of fantasy owners. He’ll bring a 4.02 ERA into a start against the Blue Jays next week.
May 26 - 12:22 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez fired 5 2/3 scoreless innings on Sunday with seven strikeouts in a win over the Orioles.

Rodriguez was fortunate -- borderline lucky -- to come out of the game scoreless, as he allowed nine hits in the start against Baltimore. He was able to make the key pitch when he needed to, however, and Heath Hembree cleaned up a bases loaded jam for the left-hander to end the sixth. Rodriguez now has an ERA on the season of 4.13, and he’s been able to strike out 58 hitters in 48 innings. He’ll be back on the mound on Saturday when he takes on the Braves in Fenway Park.
May 20 - 4:52 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez took his first loss after giving up three runs in five innings Tuesday against the A's.

Rodriguez continues to flash above average stuff and pretty mediocre results. He had been 3-0 this year, but his ERA stands at 4.68, even with his fine 51/16 K/BB ratio in 42 1/3 innings. The Red Sox need more from him, especially with the bullpen worn down.
May 16 - 12:27 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez struck out eight while allowing three hits and a walk over five scoreless innings but settled for a no-decision Thursday against the Yankees.

Rodriguez was dominant if not overly efficient, using 93 pitches to get through his five shutout innings. His relatively early exit put the onus on the bullpen to hold the lead, which they were unable to do, leaving his record at 3-0 through seven starts. He was able to improve his ERA and WHIP, lowering them to 4.58 and 1.21, respectively. The southpaw will look to keep his record spotless Tuesday when the A's visit Fenway.
May 11 - 12:06 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez had some good and some bad Saturday, striking out 10 but allowing five runs over six innings in a no-decision against the Rangers.

Rodriguez gave up just four hits and walked two, but three of the hits -- two mammoth shots by Joey Gallo, and a wall-scraper by Delino DeShields Jr. -- left the yard, inflating his run total. Still, it was a generally encouraging turn after he lasted just four innings his last time out. The southpaw owns a 5.29 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 39/13 K/BB ratio over 32 1/3 innings this year, and he'll look to improve on those numbers Friday against the Blue Jays.
May 5 - 11:41 PM

Red Sox reinstated LHP Eduardo Rodriguez from the family medical leave list.

As expected, Rodriguez will return to the Red Sox' rotation on Saturday against the Rangers. The 25-year-old southpaw is 3-0 on the season, though his 4.78 ERA and 1.33 WHIP have been uninspiring.
May 5 - 12:41 PM

Red Sox placed LHP Eduardo Rodriguez on the family medical leave list.

Rodriguez should return to the club by his next scheduled start Saturday against the Rangers. The 25-year-old lefty is 3-0 with a 4.78 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 29/11 K/BB ratio in 26 1/3 innings (five starts) this season.
May 2 - 11:16 AM

Eduardo Rodriguez was lifted after allowing five runs in four innings Monday against the Royals.

Rodriguez barely escaped the first; he gave up three walks, hit a batter and allowed a single before an Alex Gordon double-play ball bailed him out of the inning. He remained shaky afterwards, and he wasn't able to last long enough for the win despite leaving with a 7-5 lead. He'll get the Rangers next time out.
Apr 30 - 10:49 PM

Eduardo Rodriguez turned in a quality start and earned a win over the Blue Jays on Wednesday.

He gave up three runs on six hits in 6 2/3 innings and was relieved after tossing 106 pitches in the ballgame. He notched three strikeouts and issued one base-on-balls. The 25-year-old left-hander has done a good job of keeping his team in games long enough to allow their top-flight offense to make it pay. He moves to 3-0 with a 3.63 ERA in four starts. He has a 23:8 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 22 1/3 innings.
Apr 25 - 11:54 PM

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.
