Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez solid in no-decision

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 22:59:51 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez allowed four runs -- three earned -- on four hits in six innings against the Chicago White Sox on Wednesday, June 22. The lefty walked two and fanned a season-best seven.

Fantasy Tip: This was easily Rodriguez's best start of June, and had Koji Uehara not melted down in the eighth, Rodriguez would've evened his record at 2-2. He's definitely worth stashing in AL-only and deeper mixed leagues, and with a start against the Rays on tap, optimists might want to slot him into their active lineup this Monday.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez's start pushed back

Sat, 18 Jun 2016 17:53:36 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez will have his next start pushed back from Tuesday, June 21, to Wednesday, June 22, in order to have an extra bullpen session to work on his delivery. SP Clay Buchholz will start Tuesday, June 21, against the Chicago White Sox.

Fantasy Tip: Buchholz is a roll-of-the-dice DFS option in his return to the rotation, but Rodriguez should probably be left on the bench until he proves he is back on track.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez has plenty of concerns

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 13:41:52 -0700

Updating a previous report, in addition to tipping his pitches, Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez's other concerns are that his delivery is different than last season, his command is erratic and his focus wavers within games.

Fantasy Tip: That's a laundry list of fixes, and as noted in a previous tip, the recent results have been disastrous. Rodriguez should be left to deep mixed leagues as a bench stash in the hopes he figures it out on the bump. For the time being, he cannot be started with any degree of confidence after allowing 14 runs through 14 2/3 innings over his past three outings.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez tipping pitches?

Fri, 17 Jun 2016 13:36:37 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez is believed to still be tipping his pitches. It is one of a couple issues he will work on fixing before his next start against the Chicago White Sox Tuesday, June 21.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez has allowed 14 runs through 14 2/3 innings over his past three starts, and while there is plenty of upside, fantasy owners should bench him in deep mixed leagues. Take a wait-and-see approach in shallower formats with the lefty. Rodriguez clearly has some things to work on.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez to stay in rotation

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 21:39:38 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez is going to remain in the starting rotation, manager John Farrell said Thursday, June 16.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez has struggled in four starts since joining the rotation, but fantasy owners should follow Farrell's lead and give the lefty a bit of a leash.

Red Sox | Short outing for Eduardo Rodriguez

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 19:29:53 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez allowed five runs on eight hits while walking two and striking out five over 4 1/3 innings in a loss to the Baltimore Orioles Thursday, June 16.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez has yet to find his form since returning from a knee issue. He has enough upside to hold on to in mixed leagues, but you may want to keep him on the bench while he works off the rust.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez rounding into form

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 10:37:00 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez (knee) is sporting a 1-1 record with a 6.06 ERA in his first three starts after starting the year late due to a knee injury he suffered in spring training. Rodriguez said he's still rounding into form and has been missing his spots in the early going. The velocity on Rodriguez's fastball has increased in each of his first three starts, and he hit 97 mph last weekend. However, Rodriguez sounded less confident that his knee was 100% healthy. "We'll see (tonight)," Rodriguez said. "Start by start." Manager John Farrell wants to see consistent command from Rodriguez moving forward.

Fantasy Tip: E-Rod showed nicely in his rookie year, going 10-6 with a 3.85 ERA, 1.29 WHIP and 7.2 strikeouts per nine innings, so fantasy owners were expecting big things this year. The injury set him back early, and the young lefty is still trying to regain his success from a year ago. Be patient with him for now and consider him a matchup play. Look to avoid him tonight against the Orioles, one of the most dangerous lineups in baseball.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez struggles

Sun, 05 Jun 2016 13:49:40 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez gave up five runs in 5 2/3 innings in his second start of the season after spending time on the DL with knee issues. Rodriguez took the loss and fell to 1-1 as Boston lost, 5-4, to the Toronto Blue Jays on Sunday, June 5.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez may have earned a second chance in the rotation for the time being. The rumor was the Red Sox were interested in James Shields before the Chicago White Sox and San Diego Padres worked out a trade. Having Boston held hitless for a big stretch of the game didn't help Rodriguez much, either. Rodriguez is still shaky, however, as one or two more bad outings could send him to a different role with much less fantasy value.

Red Sox | Boston has interest in James Shields

Fri, 03 Jun 2016 04:57:31 -0700

San Diego Padres SP James Shields has received trade interest from the Boston Red Sox, but the Red Sox are seeing how SP Eduardo Rodriguez performs before possibly pulling the trigger on a deal.

Fantasy Tip: Shields is attracting attention from a lot of teams, and the Red Sox would make sense considering Shields has an American League background with the Tampa Bay Rays and Kansas City Royals. With a better-hitting lineup Shields' fantasy value could improve.
