Grayson Rodriguez News
Baltimore Orioles rookie right-hander Grayson Rodriguez, one of the best young pitchers in baseball, didn't fare too well in his first postseason appearance in Game 2 of the American League Division Series on Sunday against the Texas Rangers. Rodriguez made it only 1 2/3 innings while allowing five earned runs on six hits while walking four and striking out only two to take the loss and put the Orioles on the brink of elimination. The 23-year-old former 11th overall pick in 2018 has a bright future ahead of him and will be a popular fantasy selection in 2024 drafts despite his rough first playoff start. In 23 starts in his first big-league season, Rodriguez went 7-4 with a 4.35 ERA (3.93 FIP), 1.34 WHIP, 42 walks and 129 strikeouts in 122 innings.
Baltimore Orioles starting pitcher Grayson Rodriguez is lined up to start Game 2 of the ALDS versus the Texas Rangers on Sunday. It offers something of a "revenge game" narrative for the 23-year-old Rodriguez, whose May 26 eight-run bombing by the hands of Texas served as the final straw to his first big-league stint before he was demoted to the minors. Rodriguez may have gotten off to a horrible start with a 7.35 ERA over his first 10 starts of the season (45 1/3 innings pitched) but looked the part of a top pitching prospect with a 2.58 ERA across his final 13 showings (76 2/3 IP) after being recalled from the farm. The rookie right-hander coughed up 11 runs (10 earned) in 8 1/3 IP covering two regular-season starts against the 2023 Rangers.
Baltimore Orioles rookie starting pitcher Grayson Rodriguez continued to pitch well in Monday's 6-3 win over the Angels. Rodriguez pitched six innings, allowing two runs on seven hits (including a home run) and two walks with seven strikeouts. The 23-year-old has been excellent since rejoining the team after the All-Star break and has now turned in five straight quality starts. His season ERA now sits at 4.91, but he has clearly shown in the second half why he is one of fantasy baseball's top prospects. He will have a decent chance to extend his streak in his next start against the Cardinals.
Baltimore Orioles right-handed pitching prospect Grayson Rodriguez is looking to make a big impact as soon as he makes his MLB debut in 2023. The former first-round pick started 14 games at Triple-A last season, amassing a 2.04 FIP, 12.53 K/9, 2.71 BB/9, and 0.26 HR/9. Rodriguez has an impressive repertoire featuring a fastball around 100 mph, a changeup with late bite, and a slider and curveball that both serve as strong put-away pitches. He seems quite likely to make the Orioles' Opening Day roster and has shown plenty of evidence that he should live up to his hype as one of the club's best prospects. Rodriguez is a very intriguing fantasy option at his current ADP of 194.3.
