Eduardo Rodriguez News
Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez allowed five earned runs in his start against the Houston Astros on Monday. It wasn't an ideal outing for the veteran, who also gave up 10 hits and a walk while striking out a pair of batters. He finished the day with an 18% CSW rate and generated seven swinging strikes on 88 pitches against the Astros. In his first year with the Tigers, the 29-year-old has pitched to a 4.50 ERA, a 4.50 FIP, 52 strikeouts, and 26 walks in 66 innings.
Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez (personal) will return to the rotation on Sunday to face the Los Angeles Angels. Rodriguez has been on the restricted list for the bulk of the 2022 season for undisclosed reasons. Prior to landing on the restricted list, he made eight starts and went 1-3 with a 4.38 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP. The 29-year-old has been a decent fantasy option across the majority of his big league career and he has a chance of helping fantasy managers down the stretch this season. If you need some rotation help, take a look to see if he's out there on your waiver wire.
Detroit Tigers left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez (personal) will make another minor league rehab start for Triple-A Toledo on Tuesday. Rodriguez will have a conference call with manager A.J. Hinch on Wednesday to decide his next step. If he's ready to join the Tigers, he could start as early as Aug. 21. The 29-year-old southpaw has made only eight starts for Detroit this year and hasn't pitched in a big-league setting since May 18 against the Tampa Bay Rays, so he has required a rehab stint to build his arm back up. Before stepping away from the team, E-Rod was 1-3 with a 4.38 ERA (4.02 FIP), a 1.33 WHIP and a 34:17 K:BB in 39 innings pitched. He should be useful in most mixed fantasy leagues the rest of the way once he returns to the Tigers starting rotation.
The 2020 season was tragic for Boston Red Sox starting pitcherEduardo Rodriguez, as he missed the entire 60-game season due to complications from COVID-19. Fortunately, he has fully recovered and will be ready for the 2021 season. While going a full year without pitching in games certainly makes him very hard to project, we do know that there is upside here. E-Rod has always been able to generate strikeouts (23.8% strikeout rate), and in 2019 he took a big step forward in preventing hard contact, as he posted a career-high 48.5% ground-ball rate. He has always had a little trouble with his command (8.3% career walk rate, 40.8% career strike rate), but if he can ever make improvements in that area, there is real room for overall growth. While the range of outcomes is wide for Rodriguez in 2021, he has looked great in spring training and was recently named the Red Sox's opening day starter. With a 203 ADP, he has a chance to be a real steal in that range.
