Eduardo Rodriguez News
Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez (rib) threw from 60-70 feet on Thursday. After the throwing session, Rodriguez reported no symptoms. Tigers beat writer Cody Stavenhagen reports that Rodriguez will still need to do some "more intense throwing," but then after that, the Tigers hope he can "jump right into volume" while pitching from the mound. The Tigers' rotation has been ravaged by injuries, so it's good news for the team that Rodriguez hasn't had any setbacks thus far in his recovery from a rib injury. Over eight starts on the season, the 29-year-old is 1-3 with a 4.38 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP.
Detroit Tigers starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez (rib) received the results from X-rays on his ribs. They came back negative for a stress reaction. E-Rod will remain shut down for the next week and the plan is for him to begin a throwing program at some point during the team's long upcoming homestand, which spans from May 26 to June 2. The 29-year-old was 1-3 with a 4.38 ERA and a 1.33 WHIP over eight starts prior to landing on the injured list. The next Tigers pitcher to enter the rotation as a fill-in starter will be Elvin Rodriguez, who is making his first career start on Monday.
The Detroit Tigers officially placed left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez (rib cage) on the 15-day injured list on Sunday with a left rib-cage sprain and recalled right-hander Elvin Rodriguez from Triple-A Toledo in a corresponding move. Elvin Rodriguez is scheduled to start on Monday against the Minnesota Twins. E-Rod's move to the IL is retroactive to May 19. He was pulled from his last start on Wednesday against the Tampa Bay Rays with left side discomfort, and the Tigers knew then that the 29-year-old southpaw would require a stint on the injured list. There is no timetable for Rodriguez's return to Detroit's starting rotation. Before the injury, he had a 4.38 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, 17 walks and 34 strikeouts in 39 innings over eight starts.
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.
