Rodriguez was placed on the 60-day DL Saturday. Rodriguez's transfer to the 60-day DL opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for Bruce Maxwell who was called up on Saturday. Rodriguez was getting shelled before landing on the DL with a rotator cuff strain, allowing 12 earned runs over his last eight appearances (15.43 ERA) dating back to June 16. Although he's yet to resume baseball activities, he's still projected to return sometime in August.
Rodriguez (shoulder) was diagnosed with a rotator cuff strain Wednesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Rodriguez was put on the 15-day DL on Monday and surgery likely won't be necessary. He will be shut down for a while and reevaluated in the future.
Rodriguez (shoulder) will undergo an MRI on Tuesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports. Rodriguez threw just one pitch in Sunday's game against the Pirates before feeling pain in his shoulder, resulting in the A's quickly pulling him from the contest. The team wasted no time in transferring him to the disabled list earlier in the day Monday, but the MRI should determine the full extent of his injury. For now, Rodriguez has been diagnosed with a right shoulder strain.
Rodriguez (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day DL on Monday. Rodriguez suffered a shoulder strain during his appearance Sunday against the Pirates, and although the results of his MRI haven't been made available, the Athletics determined the reliever was dealing with more than a day-to-day situation. In order to compensate for Rodriguez's absence, the Athletics added Andrew Triggs and Patrick Schuster to help bolster the bullpen depth.
Rodriguez is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his shoulder Sunday, Joe Stiglich of CSN California reports. The reliever has already been diagnosed with a shoulder strain, and the MRI figures to reveal the extent of the damage. He left Sunday's relief appearance after recording just one out. Stiglich acknowledged the possibility of a DL stint for Rodriguez depending on the results of the MRI, so the A's could be making a roster move in the near future if Rodriguez winds up having to miss extended time.
