Eduardo Rodriguez News
Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez had another tough outing Thursday, allowing six runs on six hits and three walks over 4 2/3 innings. Rodriguez struck out five batters. His ERA has now ballooned to 6.03 for the year, and he's only managed to complete six innings in three of his 12 starts. There are some indications that Rodriguez has been the victim of bad luck, but it would be fair for fantasy managers to be losing faith.
Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez was solid in his start against the Yankees Saturday, throwing 5 1/3 innings with three runs allowed on five hits and a walk while striking out seven. Rodriguez has thrown better than his 5.59 ERA for the season indicates, but this was his only start in his last five that he allowed three runs or less. With an xERA of 3.57, better days should be ahead, but he isn't a must on fantasy rosters.
Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez was no match for the Houston Astros lineup Monday, giving up six runs on seven hits and two walks in 4 2/3 innings. He struck out four and was saddled with his fourth loss, dropping his record to 5-4. Rodriguez now has a 5.64 ERA for the year, which sits far above his career mark of 4.14. Fantasy managers may rightly be getting frustrated with the lefty. He should be benched going forward and can be dropped if a roster spot is needed.
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.
