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.

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.

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.

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.
Mar 7 - 4:11 PM

Red Sox purchased the contract of LHP Eduardo Rodriguez from Double-A Portland.

Rodriguez was acquired from the Orioles in July for Andrew Miller. The left-hander was rated a Top 100 prospect last spring by Baseball America and is now protected from selection in December's Rule 5 Draft.
Thu, Nov 20, 2014 02:16:00 PM

Red Sox prospect LHP allowed one run on seven hits over seven innings and struck out seven batters on Tuesday for Double-A Portland.

Rodriguez has turned his season around in a big way since coming over from the Orioles at the trade deadline, posting a 0.86 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 35-6 strikeout-to-walk ratio over 31 1/3 innings (five starts). The 21-year-old southpaw was having a down year before the trade, with a 4.79 ERA and 1.44 ERA over 82 2/3 innings with Double-A Bowie. With 173 2/3 innings at the Double-A level over the last two years, Rodriguez is likely to begin the 2015 season at Triple-A Pawtucket.

Red Sox left-handed pitching prospect Eduardo Rodriguez tossed six shutout innings for Double-A Portland on Friday, striking out nine while scattering three hits and three walks.

Rodriguez's prospect status has spiked over the past year, and has gone from being viewed as a command/control lefty with the potential to be a back-of-the-rotation starter to a being viewed as a potential No. 3 starter. He was acquired for lefty reliever Andrew Miller on July 31. Rodriguez should spend the rest of the season with Double-A Portland, is a big part of the next wave of prospect pitchers amassed by GM Ben Cherington, and should be able to contributing at the big league level in 2015.

Eduardo Rodriguez will make his first start in the Red Sox minor league system on Sunday, pitching for Double-A Portland.

Rodriguez was acquired from Baltimore for Red Sox reliever Andrew Miller. In the Orioles system, Rodriguez had posted a 4.79 ERA with a 1.44 WHIP this season.

Red Sox acquired LHP Eduardo Rodriguez from the Orioles for LHP Andrew Miller.

Ben Cherington continues to have an outstanding day. Boston held out for a top prospect in Miller negotiations, and they finally got one from a rival. Rodriguez was recently ranked by MLB.com as Baltimore's No. 3 prospect. "Initially more of a command-and-control lefty, Rodriguez has grown into his lanky frame and has seen his velocity jump as a result," the site's scouting report reads. "He now throws his fastball in the low 90s, with good sink and movement. Rodriguez pairs his fastball with a hard changeup and a tight slider, both of which grade out as above-average offerings." Rodriguez projects as a middle-of-the rotation starter.

According to Eduardo Encina of the Baltimore Sun, the Orioles are unlikely to trade away Eduardo Rodriguez unless they are "blown away" by a potential deal.

The club still believes that the 20-year-old southpaw is a big part of their future. He's expected to begin the 2014 campaign at Double-A Bowie, and it's not unthinkable that he could debut with the Orioles at some point before the end of the season.

Orioles prospect Eduardo Rodriguez excelled in Saturday's Arizona Fall League title game, allowing just two hits over three scoreless innings as Surprise topped Mesa 2-0.

Rodriguez fanned four without walking a batter on the afternoon, throwing 30 of his 42 pitches for strikes. It had been a rough Fall season for him up until that point, entering play with a 5.52 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 16/6 K/BB ratio over 14 2/3 innings. The 20-year-old southpaw is expected to begin the open the year back at Double-A Bowie, but could become an option for the O's later in the season.
