      Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Confident he's fixed tipping problem

      Rodriguez said he's fixed the problem of tipping his pitches that arose last season with Boston, WEEI.com reports. Rodriguez's problems began June 14 in a loss to the Blue Jays, then re-surfaced spectacularly June 25 against the Orioles. He retired the first 10 batters faced, including five by strikeout, before a Chris Parmalee double got the O's rolling. Forced to pitch from the stretch, Rodriguez allowed seven straight hits and six runs before departing. He had been tipping pitches out of the stretch by the position of his head and glove. The left-hander said he had fixed the problem by the end of the last season -- a 2.22 ERA in his final four starts is evidence of that -- and he's been working all winter on his mechanics to remove any "tell" opponents can spot.

      Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez shines in win over Yankees

      Red Sox rookie starter Eduardo Rodriguez won his 10th game Monday against the Yankees as he allowed just one run on seven hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out five. Rodriguez scattered the seven hits by holding the Yankees to just one extra-base hit, a Jacoby Ellsbury double. Rodriguez hasn't allowed more than three earned runs since August 12, a seven-start stretch in which Rodriguez owns a 34:9 K:BB and has lowered his ERA from 4.83 to 3.85. This is why Rodriguez was a coveted prospect and a run that should lock him into a starting spot next season.

      Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez turns in quality start Monday

      Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez hurled a quality start in a no decision Monday against Tampa, as he allowed three runs on six hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out four. Rodriguez was sharp, as he induced 12 swinging strikes in just 91 pitches. He tossed five shutout innings after a three-run first, which included an infield single RBI from Logan Forsythe. Rodriguez owns a 3.97 ERA in in 115 2/3 MLB innings and will likely make only one more start this year, as his 164 innings between MLB and the minors is the most of his career.

      Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez to start Monday

      Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez will make his next start Monday in Tampa Bay, Scott Lauber of The Boston Herald reports. Red Sox interim manager Torey Lovullo said that Rodriguez will be limited to between 10 and 15 innings the rest of the season, which likely amounts to two starts. The rookie has already covered 158 innings between Triple-A Pawtucket and the big leagues this season, but hasn't shown any signs of the workload overwhelming him. He struck out nine batters in just 5 1/3 innings his last time out against the Orioles.

      Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez left with tough-luck loss on Monday

      Red Sox rookie starter Eduardo Rodriguez had a solid outing against the Orioles on Monday. The young right-hander allowed one run on five hits over 5 1/3 innings. He walked three and struck out a career-high nine batters, but was left with the loss in the 2-0 defeat. Rodriguez (9-6, 3.94 ERA) allowed his only run to score in the first inning. Aside from that, he did a good job of dancing out of danger, while keeping his team in the game. Unfortunately, he was unable to get any help from the offense in this one. After enduring a rough outing against the Marlins in which he allowed eight runs in five innings back on Aug. 12, Rodriguez has been pitching very well. In five starts since, Rodriguez is 3-1 with a 1.73 ERA.

      Red Sox to restrict rookie SP Eduardo Rodriguez

      The Red Sox are being careful with rookie starter Eduardo Rodriguez and plan to limit his innings down the stretch, per the Boston Herald. Rodriguez has thrown 152 innings this season over the course of the minors and majors, more than the 127 he threw last year in the minors and above the Red Sox's normal 20 percent increase. So, with the team going to a six-man rotation, Rodriguez will sit for more than a week in between starts. "We're all here to protect the health of the players," pitching coach Carl Willis said.

      Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez beats Yankees for eighth win

      Red Sox rookie starter Eduardo Rodriguez pitched well and earned his eighth win of the season on Monday against the Yankees. Rodriguez allowed two runs (one earned) on seven hits over five-plus innings. He walked three and struck out four, en route to the 4-3 victory. Rodriguez (8-5, 4.25 ERA) gave up a run in the first inning, thanks in-part to a fielding error. Another run came across in the fourth, but the Red Sox scored three runs of their own in between. The bullpen made things interesting, but ultimately the Red Sox held on for the win. The young right-hander pitched well in August, going 2-2 with a 4.06 ERA--which includes an eight-run meltdown back on August 12.
