Detroit Tigers left-hander Eduardo Rodríguez has stepped away for the time being for personal reasons, and the club has placed him on the restricted list as a result. 

Tigers general manager Al Avila released the following statement through the team on Monday: 

"Eduardo Rodríguez has informed the Club that due to personal matters he will not rejoin the team at this time. As a result, Eduardo has been placed on the restricted list until further notice."

No further details have been reported at this time. Players do not receive salary while on the restricted list.
