Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Progressing from heart condition
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Red Sox chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom said Wednesday that Rodriguez continues to ramp up his activities after missing the entire 2020 season while recovering from myocarditis, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

Rodriguez first experienced the heart condition a few weeks after he tested positive for COVID-19 shortly before the start of the Red Sox's summer camp in late June. The lefty eventually reported to the team's facility near the end of camp, but he was shut down for good while he continued to battle heart-related complications when he attempted to increase the intensity of his workouts. After taking a few months off, Rodriguez was cleared to resume light cardio activity in late September, and he appears to have thus far avoided any setbacks in his recovery. Assuming his offseason continues to proceed normally, Rodriguez should face few restrictions, if any, when pitchers and catchers report for spring training in February.

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Hoping for normal offseason
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (illness) has been cleared to resume light physical activity Friday and is hoping for a normal offseason, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

Rodriguez developed myocarditis, a heart condition, as a result of his battle with COVID-19. He's been shut down from all physical activity all season in order to ease the strain on his heart. He'll begin by going on walks before advancing to a treadmill. Assuming his heart responds well, he'll have a chance to be ready to pitch by the start of next season.

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Gets checkup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodrigues (illness) flew to Boston for a checkup, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

Rodriguez did not pitch this season due to myocarditis (inflammation of the heart), an after-effect of COVID-19. He is set to undergo medical tests designed to gauge how well he is recovering. "Yeah, he's doing well actually," said Red Sox manager Ron Roenicke. "He flew back to Boston, just got into town yesterday. I don't know what the results were on the tests that he took, but I can find that out, [and] he seems to be doing well." Teams generally have plans in place for pitchers coming back from injuries, but Rodriguez's condition presents a unique challenge. The Red Sox don't know what to expect from the left-hander, who threw 203.1 innings in 2019.

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Ruled out for season
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox announced Saturday that Rodriguez (illness) will not pitch this season, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.

Rodriguez developed myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle, as a result of his battle with COVID-19. Strenuous activity is unsafe for his heart at the moment, and a recent examination indicated that's not expected to change soon enough for him to pitch at any point this year. The team remains hopeful that he'll make a full recovery and will be able to pitch next season.

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Re-examined by medical staff
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (illness) was examined by the Red Sox's medical staff Thursday, Ian Browne of MLB.com reports.

"We haven't gotten results yet," Boston manager Ron Roenicke said later in the day. "If we know anything more, I'm hoping I do in the next day or two, then we'll get it to you and see where he is. Hopefully everything is good and we can start at least playing catch with him again." Rodriguez was diagnosed with myocarditis -- inflammation of the heart -- and the condition is believed to be related to COVID-19. The Red Sox are not rushing Rodriguez back, but they are hoping the left-hander can pitch in 1-2 inning stints at some point.

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Not close to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Manager Ron Roenicke said Rodriguez (illness) is still a ways away from game action, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Rodriguez remains shut down as he continues to wait for his bout of heart inflammation (a result of his battle with COVID-19) to subside, and even when he's cleared to resume physical activity, it sounds like he will need plenty of time to build his arm back up. While the southpaw remains sidelined, Matt Hall is a candidate to start in his place.

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Removed from player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (illness) was removed from the Red Sox's player pool Monday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

The move is likely primarily procedural, as Rodriguez remains shut down from workouts until his heart inflammation (a result of his battle with coronavirus) subsides. His absence clears a space for Boston to add Robert Stock, who was claimed off waivers from the Phillies on Sunday. Rodriguez still hopes to pitch this season, but it remains unclear when it will be safe for him to do so.

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Not considering opting out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (illness) said he's taking the next week off from baseball activities but has not considered opting out of the 2020 season, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

The 27-year-old developed myocarditis -- an inflammation of the heart -- as a result of his battle with COVID-19, but he said Sunday that he "love[s] the sport too much" to consider opting out. Rodriguez will be restricted from any physical activity that's more strenuous than walking for the next week. The left-hander still hopes to pitch again in 2020, but it remains to be seen if/when that becomes medically realistic.

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Feeling good
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (illness) feels good but continues to rest as he recovers from a heart condition, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Rodriguez has been cleared to return to the team following his battle with COVID-19, but he remains sidelined after developing myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle, as a result of the virus. It's certainly a positive that he's feeling good, but strenuous exercise could be dangerous to his heart, so there's little for him to do but rest until the inflammation subsides. He's expected to speak to the media in a few days, at which point his return timeline could become more clear.

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Dealing with heart issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez is dealing with a heart condition as a result of his battle with COVID-19, Rob Bradford of WEEI.com reports.

Rodriguez is reportedly dealing with myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle, as a result of the coronavirus. He's back in camp after testing negative for the virus, but he's been completely shut down from baseball activities as a strenuous workout would be dangerous to his heart. The Red Sox are reportedly optimistic that he'll be able to pitch at some point this season, but they'll have to wait until the inflammation subsides before they have a clearer picture of when he'll be able to get back on the field.

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Shut down indefinitely
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (COVID-19) has been shut down from all baseball activities, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

Manager Ron Roenicke said Boston's medical staff discovered some minor complications related to Rodriguez's recovery from the coronavirus. The southpaw is apparently testing negative for the virus, but his body has not physically recovered. He threw a bullpen session Saturday and Roenicke is confident that Rodriguez will be able to pitch at some point in 2020. Boston will have to mix and match this season for the final two spots in the rotation, as they lack healthy, quality starting options in those spots.

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Could build up on active roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (illness) could build up to a full workload during major-league games, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

Rodriguez was unable to report to camp until Saturday after battling COVID-19. He was reportedly hit fairly hard by the virus, putting him understandably well behind his teammates in his preparation for the upcoming season. He's still on the COVID-19 injured list even though he's been cleared to work out, but while he may remain there at the start of the regular season, the Red Sox appear willing to bring him back for some short starts before he's fully built up his pitch count.

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Experienced full symptoms
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez was hit pretty hard by COVID-19, experiencing a headache and a fever while he had the virus, Julian McWilliams of The Boston Globe reports.

Rodriguez said he had never been that sick in his life. He has been going through workouts since July 8 in an effort to get ready for the season, so there seems to be a decent chance he could start one of the first five games of the campaign, but that is still to be determined. The Red Sox have yet to officially activate Rodriguez from the COVID-19 injured list even though he rejoined the team at summer camp this weekend.

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Cleared to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (illness) was cleared to join his teammates at Fenway Park on Saturday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

A positive COVID-19 test had kept Rodriguez away from his teammates up to this point and will prevent him from making the Red Sox's Opening Day start (which will go to Nathan Eovaldi). He had been able to throw while away from the team, however, so it's possible he's not too far behind his teammates. When exactly Rodriguez is expected to make his season debut and how many pitches he'll be able to throw in his first few starts remain to be seen.

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Arrives in Boston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (illness) arrived in Boston on Friday, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

The 27-year-old has been absent from camp after testing positive for COVID-19, but he appears to be nearing full clearance. Rodriguez has been throwing during his time away from the team, but manager Ron Roenicke cautioned against a specific return timeline until they see him throwing in person. The left-hander is unlikely to be prepared to pitch Opening Day, but reporting to camp is the first major step in his return to the mound.

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Moves to COVID-19 IL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Red Sox placed Rodriguez (illness) on the COVID-19 injured list Tuesday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.

Rodriguez was one of three pitchers who recently tested positive for the coronavirus that Boston moved to the IL. The southpaw is apparently coming along well in his recovery from COVID-19, as he's been able to do some throwing at home this week while he remains in quarantine. Rodriguez will have to submit two negative COVID-19 test results before he's able to rejoin the team, but even if he's back with the Red Sox before the conclusion of summer camp, he likely won't be included on the Opening Day roster. Once he reports to the team, Rodriguez will still have to ramp up and get his arm conditioned for starting duty, a process that could result in him missing multiple turns through the rotation.

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Able to throw
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (illness) has been able to throw into a net in his backyard while quarantined, Bill Koch of The Providence Journal reports.

A positive COVID-19 test has prevented the lefty from being able to join his teammates, but he evidently doesn't have a particularly serious case given that he's still been able to work out. It's not clear exactly what sort of workload he'll be able to handle once he's back on the field, nor is it clear when that's expected to happen, though the Red Sox have yet to completely rule him out for Opening Day.

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Not ruled out for Opening Day
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Red Sox manager Ron Roenicke has not yet ruled out Rodriguez (illness) for Opening Day but added that time is running out, Chris Cotillo of MassLive.com reports.

Rodriguez, who tested positive COVID-19, would need to test negative for the virus twice before he's cleared to travel to Boston. With less than two weeks before Opening Day, Rodriguez is looking doubtful. "There is definitely a time when we'll have to make that decision," Roenicke said. "We haven't yet. We haven't really talked about when that day is. I know he's continuing to stay active with his arm and throwing some. But it depends on how long it goes before he can get a couple test results that come back in our favor." The left-handed Rodriguez had built himself up to four innings during the shutdown, but it's uncertain where he stands at this time. If Rodriguez is unable to make it back for the opener, then Nathan Eovaldi would take the ball July 24 at home against Baltimore.

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Tests positive for COVID-19
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.

Rodriguez had yet to join his teammates after coming in contact with someone who had tested positive for the virus and found out Tuesday that he had the virus as well. The lefty is feeling better, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports, but with Opening Day less than three weeks away, it's quite possible he misses time to begin the year.

Red Sox's Eduardo Rodriguez: Absent due to isolation protocols
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez has yet to report to camp as he's currently awaiting the results of a COVID-19 test, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.

Rodriguez had been in contact with someone who tested positive for coronavirus and is isolating until he knows whether or not he's been infected. The Red Sox should know shortly whether or not he'll be able to join the team soon.
