Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez will have start skipped

Tue, 25 Aug 2015 15:58:30 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez will have his next start skipped. SPs Henry Owens, Joe Kelly and Wade Miley will start during the weekend series against the New York Mets.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) is pushing up against his innings limit, so look for the Red Sox to be cautious with him down the stretch. In most formats, he is nothing more than a streaming option and FantayScore start when landing in a plus-matchup, though. Check back for updates on when he'll make his next start. For the season, Rodriguez owns a 4.39 ERA, a 4.29 FIP and a 1.24 WHIP.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez has great outing

Tue, 18 Aug 2015 22:23:08 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez allowed just one earned run, six hits and no walks over eight innings in a win Tuesday, Aug. 18, against the Cleveland Indians. He also struck out five batters in the 114-pitch quality start.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has alternated quality starts in each of his past five starts. He has been a little better at home lately, and should only warrant FantasyScore consideration when he is in Fenway Park.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez rocked again

Wed, 12 Aug 2015 16:47:23 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez allowed eight runs on nine hits and a walk through five innings during the Red Sox's 14-6 loss to the Miami Marlins Wednesday, Aug. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) has allowed six earned runs or more in four of his 14 starts this season, while holding opponents to two runs or fewer in nine outings. He is clearly prone to giving up runs in bunches, which makes him a risky start in all fantasy formats. Be careful who you start him against in all fantasy formats going forward, an especially at FantasyScore.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez will pitch Sunday

Thu, 23 Jul 2015 18:24:07 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez has had his next start pushed back to Sunday, July 26, against the Detroit Tigers.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) comes with considerable risk on FantasyScore, as he has allowed two earned runs or fewer in seven of his 10 starts this season, but he has allowed six earned runs or more in the other three. He can be left alone against the Tigers' offense.

Red Sox | Eduardo Rodriguez chased early

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 18:18:54 -0700

Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez lasted just 1 2/3 innings in Game 1 of the doubleheader Monday, July 20, against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim.

Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez ($5,400, 10.8% of cap) allowed six hits, three walks and seven earned runs. It snapped a streak of three strong outings from Rodriguez, but it goes to show the risk that accompanies the Red Sox's youngster.

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.
