Rodriguez (shoulder) will be shut down for 2-to-3 weeks before resuming a throwing program, the Associated Press reports. Rodriguez was diagnosed with a strained right shoulder after exiting his June 1 start and was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday. As anticipated, the right-hander will need more than the minimum amount of time to recover from the shoulder issue, and the Tribe probably won't have a good feel for a potential target date for Rodriguez's return until he's able to throw off a mound without any discomfort. The Indians will first require a replacement in the rotation for Rodriguez on Friday against the Yankees but have yet to announce who will fill the void.
Rodriguez was placed on the 10-day injured list Tuesday due to a right shoulder strain, retroactive to Sunday. Rodriguez left Saturday's start against the White Sox due to right lat tightness, and after undergoing an MRI, he's been diagnosed with a shoulder strain. He'll be eligible to return beginning June 14, meaning he'd miss only one start if he's able to come back after the 10-day minimum.
Rodriguez will undergo an MRI on his right shoulder after exiting Saturday's start versus the White Sox, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. Rodriguez was removed after four innings Saturday when the Indians noticed a drop in his velocity. The injury was originally announced as right lat tightness, but the MRI should help clarify the specifics of the issue.
Rodriguez left his start Saturday against the White Sox due to right lat tightness, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports. Rodriguez threw just four innings before exiting. He allowed one run on two hits and three walks while striking out three batters. It's not yet clear if his next turn in the rotation is in jeopardy.
Rodriguez (1-5) gave up seven runs (six earned) on eight hits and three walks while striking out six through 4.1 innings to take the loss against the Red Sox on Monday. Rodriguez pitched two scoreless innings before the wheels came off, allowing 11 baserunners in his fifth loss of the season. After a solid start to the season, he has allowed 14 earned runs and three home runs over his last three starts. The right-hander has a 1-5 record with a 4.99 ERA through seven starts this season. Rodriguez will make his next start Saturday against the White Sox.
