Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez was tipping pitches

Mon, 29 Jun 2015 15:53:20 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez was tipping his pitches during his rough outing against the Baltimore Orioles last week, according to pitching coach Carl Willis. "It was borderline obvious," said Willis. "He'd been so good out of the windup. Going back and looking at the pitches he executed from the stretch, they were still quality pitches. It's safe to say that there's a good likelihood that could have had something to do with it." Rodriguez had only allowed one or fewer earned runs in four of his first five major league starts.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) has come crashing back down to earth after a hot start, and he's allowed 16 earned runs in his last 14 2/3 innings over three starts. Against the Toronto Blue Jays Tuesday, Rodriguez is a weak play. The Blue Jays lead all of baseball by a wide margin in runs scored, and they're even more dangerous at home.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez beat up by O's

Thu, 25 Jun 2015 14:33:59 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez gave up six runs and seven hits in a loss to the Baltimore Orioles Thursday, June 25, after giving up just one run or less in four of his first five major league starts. Rodriguez lasted just 3 2/3 innings and walked none and struck out five to see his ERA rise to 4.33 on the season.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) is human after all. The lefty has now allowed 16 runs in his last three starts after allowing just one run in his first three. It's become apparent that the rookie left-hander isn't as good as his first three starts indicated, and you'll need to pick and choose your spots based on matchups when considering him on FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez staying in rotation

Thu, 04 Jun 2015 10:54:22 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez will remain in the rotation and be slotted in between SPs Clay Buchholz and Rick Porcello, according to manager John Farrell. Rodriguez lines up to face the Baltimore Orioles in the series opener next week.

Fantasy Tip: This should come as no surprise to anyone, as the rookie left-hander has allowed just one earned run and struck out 14 in two wins in his first 14 2/3 innings in the big leagues. He should be owned in all formats by now. Rodriguez will be a high-upside FantasyScore option because of his penchant to miss bats.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez hurls gem Wednesday

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 17:32:41 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez allowed one run on two hits over seven innings in a victory over the Minnesota Twins Wednesday, June 3, with two walks and seven strikeouts. He became the first pitcher since at least 1900 to throw at least seven innings, allow fewer than four hits and strike out at least seven batters in each of his first two starts.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) had been slated to return to the minors after his major league debut but his performance, combined with Boston's starting pitching woes this year, have put those plans on hold. He could be a solid play in FantasyScore depending on the opponent.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez off to good start

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 12:45:26 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez has seven or more strikeouts in each of his first two American League starts. The last lefty pitcher in the AL to accomplish that feat was Al Leiter in 1987.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($4,900, 9.8% of cap) is playing off a small sample size here, but the fact is his second start has gone about as well as the first. He may yet fade this season, but Rodriguez has been a rare bright spot in an otherwise disappointing year for Boston. Keep an eye on him.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez to work Wed.

Mon, 01 Jun 2015 20:21:51 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez is scheduled to work in Game 1 of the doubleheader Wednesday, June 3, against the Minnesota Twins.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez was sharp May 28 in Texas in his first start, giving up just three hits and two walks with seven strikeouts over 7 2/3 innings in a win. He could be a solid play in FantasyScore if he can stick around in the rotation.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez earns another start

Fri, 29 May 2015 15:01:01 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez will make another start Wednesday, June 3, with the team going to a six-man rotation for at least another turn through.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) put on a heck of a performance in his major league debut last night, going 7 2/3 innings and allowing just three hits and no runs while striking out seven. Rodriguez should be added in all AL-only leagues and even warrants consideration in deep mixed leagues. A matchup against the Minnesota Twins next Wednesday could be dicey, but Rodriguez has plenty of strikeout upside with a high-90s heater and wipeout slider.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez impressive in debut

Thu, 28 May 2015 20:12:54 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez allowed no runs on three hits while striking out seven in 7 2/3 innings a win over the Texas Rangers in his major league debut Thursday, May 28.

Fantasy Tip: Although the original plan was to send Rodriguez back down to the minors after his start, his strong showing and Boston's shaky rotation could change things. He is worth a speculative grab in AL-only and deeper mixed leagues.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez coming up

Wed, 27 May 2015 10:43:53 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez will be called up from Class AAA Pawtucket to start against the Texas Rangers Thursday, May 28. He was 4-3 with a 2.98 ERA in eight starts in the minors and struck out 44 in 48 1/3 innings. Manager John Farrell said the team will go with a six-man rotation for a turn, with the plan to return Rodriguez to the minors. The other starters will all be pushed back a day. Farrell acknowledged that it may be hard to send Rodriguez back down if he pitches well tomorrow. SP Joe Kelly has struggled this year, has minor league options left and could pitch out of the bullpen if necessary. The Red Sox are also looking for an opportunity to call up SP Brian Johnson, who is 5-3 with a 2.92 ERA in nine starts for Pawtucket.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez should be picked up in all AL-only leagues, and he even warrants consideration in deep mixed formats if he stays in the rotation. However, starting him at FantasyScore tomorrow for a cheap price seems too risky. Joe Kelly ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) will probably need to turn in a fine performance in his next start to avoid being bumped from the rotation.

Red Sox | Joe Kelly to be bumped from rotation?

Tue, 26 May 2015 10:17:47 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly, after another poor performance against the Minnesota Twins Monday, May 25, could be bumped from the starting rotation in favor of SP Eduardo Rodriguez. Boston had already been thinking about bringing Rodriguez up from Class AAA Pawtucket, and it appears that Kelly has one more start to convince the team he belongs in the rotation.

Fantasy Tip: Kelly ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has allowed at least five earned runs in three of his five starts in May. You shouldn't want to test the waters at FantasyScore with Kelly in what might be a make-or-break start in his next outing. For those in need of rotation help in AL-only leagues, put Rodriguez on your watch list.
