Rodriguez (illness) is scheduled to start Thursday against the Blue Jays, Jen McCaffrey of The Athletic reports.
The left-hander was pulled from Friday's start against the Yankees after one inning due to migraine issues, but he's feeling better over the past couple days and is poised to start Thursday's series finale with Toronto. Rodriguez had been pitching better of late prior to Friday's brief showing with a 2.83 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 34:5 K:BB across his previous five starts (28.2 innings).
Manager Alex Cora said that Rodriguez (illness) felt better Saturday, Pete Abraham of The Boston Globe reports.
Rodriguez was removed from Friday's game against the Yankees after one inning due to migraine issues, and the team told him to report late to the ballpark Saturday. The Red Sox haven't yet announced whether the southpaw will be able to make his next start, but he appears to be trending in the right direction. If he's cleared to pitch, Rodriguez tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Blue Jays on Thursday.
Rodriguez left Friday's game against the Yankees after one inning due to migraine issues, according to the MLB Network broadcast.
At least this is something that gives Rodriguez a chance of making his next start, but for Friday's purposes it was pretty much a worst-case scenario for those with fantasy shares in the southpaw, as he allowed a run while giving up two hits and a walk in his only inning and could still be on the hook for a loss if things don't go Boston's way. Phillips Valdez replaced Rodriguez and has looked fantastic in the early going.
Rodriguez exited Friday's game against the Yankees due to migraine symptoms, Steve Hewitt of the Boston Herald reports.
Rodriguez motioned to trainers after giving up a double in the second inning and was removed from the contest, but it's unlikely that his departure will force a long-term absence. If he returns to full health in the coming days, the southpaw tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Blue Jays on Thursday.
Rodriguez was removed from Friday's game against the Yankees in the second inning with an apparent injury, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
Rodriguez gave up a double with no outs in the top of the second inning, and he was able to cover home plate during the play. However, he motioned to trainers after the play and was hunched over on the mound for several minutes before he exited the game. He gave up a run on two hits and a walk while striking out one in one inning prior to his departure. The exact nature and severity of his injury aren't yet clear.
Rodriguez (7-5) earned the win Friday versus the Yankees. He allowed two hits and two walks while striking out eight in 5.2 scoreless innings.
Rodriguez wasn't overly efficient, throwing 57 of his 97 pitches for strikes, but a depleted Yankees lineup couldn't get anything going against him. The southpaw lowered his ERA to 5.19 with a 1.33 WHIP and 112:23 K:BB across 95.1 innings this year. He projects to make his next start at home in a rematch versus the Yankees next week.
Rodriguez will start Friday's game against the Yankees, Alex Speier of The Boston Globe reports.
Rodriguez was slated to start Thursday before that contest was postponed, and he'll simply be pushed back a day to start Friday. The left-hander has a 5.52 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 104:21 K:BB across 89.2 innings this season and will attempt to turn things around in the second half.
Rodriguez won't start Thursday against the Yankees after the game was postponed due to the Yankees' COVID-19 issues, Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic reports.
The Yankees are reportedly dealing with positive COVID-19 tests within the organization, so it's not yet clear when the game could be made up or whether the rest of the series will go on as planned. The Red Sox haven't announced their revised pitching plans, but Rodriguez could be in line to start during the team's next matchup.
Rodriguez (6-5) took the loss Wednesday versus the Angels. He gave up four runs on nine hits and struck out five in five innings.
Rodriguez struggled early with the Angels scraping together a pair of runs in the first inning. He settled in after that, but Shohei Ohtani and Jared Walsh slugged back-to-back home runs off the Boston starter in the fifth. The nine hits allowed by Rodriguez were the most he's given up since May 18 and just the second-highest total in his 17 starts. The southpaw has a 5.52 ERA, 1.37 WHIP and 104:21 K:BB across 89.2 innings as the first half of the season comes to a close.
Rodriguez allowed a hit and two walks over six scoreless frames in Friday's win over Oakland. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision.
Rodriguez cruised through one of his best outings of the season but couldn't pick up a win after the Athletics forced extra innings. The 28-year-old southpaw has gone six innings in three straight starts after failing to reach that mark in his previous six outings. Over his last two starts, he's given up just two runs in 12 innings while striking out 14. Rodriguez will carry a 5.42 ERA into next week's projected road outing against the Angels.
Rodriguez (6-4) allowed two runs on five hits and struck out eight in six innings to earn the win over the Yankees on Sunday.
Rodriguez delivered his third quality start in 15 outings this year. The only blemish on his line was a two-run home run by Aaron Judge in the sixth inning. Sunday's win snapped a run of eight straight starts without a victory for Rodriguez. The southpaw carries a 5.83 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 93:19 K:BB across 78.2 innings into his next start, which is tentatively scheduled for next weekend in Oakland.
Rodriguez allowed five runs (three earned) on seven hits and a walk while striking out seven across six innings Tuesday. He did not factor into the decision in an eventual win over the Rays.
A pair of runs crossed the plate in the first inning, they were unearned due to two fielding errors. However, Rodriguez became Wander Franco's first victim, as the young phenom blasted a three-run homer in the fifth inning for his first career hit. The 28-year-old's 6.07 ERA and 1.46 WHIP are the highest of his career, and he's 0-4 in his last eight starts. His 10.5 K/9 is about the only thing going right for him currently.
Rodriguez allowed four earned runs on six hits and one walk while striking out eight across four innings Tuesday against Atlanta. He did not factor into the decision.
Rodriguez was handed a five-run lead in the first three innings of the game, but he failed to pitch deep enough to be eligible for the win. He was also hit hard, as he allowed four extra-base hits -- though none were homers. The lefty is in the midst of a concerning stretch, as Rodriguez has allowed at least four runs in seven of his last nine starts. He did manage to balance some of that damage in this outing with the eight strikeouts, which he backed with 17 swinging strikes on 80 total pitches. For the season, Rodriguez now has a 6.21 ERA with a 78:18 K:BB across 66.2 frames.
Rodriguez allowed six runs on six hits and three walks with five strikeouts in 4.2 innings during a no-decision versus Houston on Thursday.
A back-and-forth contest saw Rodriguez labor through his start, needing 106 pitches (64 strikes) to complete 4.2 innings. He was spared the loss when Christian Arroyo hit a game-tying, three-run home run in the bottom of the fifth inning. Rodriguez continues to struggle this year with a 6.03 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 70;17 K:BB across 62.2 innings. He's expected to make his next start in Atlanta next week.

Rodriguez has completed six innings just three times in 11 starts this year. He owns a 5.59 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 65:14 K:BB across 58 innings. The 28-year-old lines up to face Houston at home next week.
Rodriguez (5-4) took the loss Monday. He allowed six runs on seven hits and two walks with four strikeouts in 4.2 innings versus Houston.

The southpaw also gave up a two-run home run to Jose Atluve in the third and a two-run single to Kyle Tucker in the fifth. Rodriguez will be glad to put May in the rear-view mirror after taking losses in his last four starts. He has a 5.64 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 58:13 K:BB across 52.2 innings this season. The 28-year-old lines up for a road start versus the Yankees this weekend.
Rodriguez won't start as scheduled Sunday against the Marlins since the game was postponed due to inclement weather, Chris Cotillo of The Springfield Republican reports.
The postponement is expected to push Rodriguez back a day, as he's the probable starter for Monday's game at Houston. It's unclear when Sunday's contest will be made up.
Rodriguez (5-3) allowed four runs on five hits and three walks while striking out six in four innings to take the loss against the Phillies on Sunday.
Rodriguez retired two of the first three batters he faced Sunday, but the Phillies put together a two-out rally in the bottom of the first inning and scored four runs to put the southpaw in line for the loss. Rodriguez earned wins in five of his first six starts this year but has now been charged with three consecutive losses. He tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Marlins on Sunday.
Rodriguez (5-2) suffered his second straight loss Tuesday, allowing five runs on 11 hits and one walk while striking out six in an 8-0 loss to Toronto.
The Blue Jays were uber-aggressive against Rodriguez, who likes to throw first-pitch strikes. He entered the night with a first-pitch strike rate of a career-high 66 percent, per Jordan Horrobin of MLB.com. Toronto batters swung at the first pitch 16 times in 26 at-bats, which isn't necessarily a problem but can be if the pitcher is missing his target and catching too much of the plate. After winning his first four starts and posting a 3.52 ERA, Rodriguez is 1-2 with a 6.00 ERA in the last four outings. He lugs a 4.70 ERA into his next start Sunday at Philadelphia.
Rodriguez (5-1) took the loss Wednesday as the Red Sox were downed 4-1 by the A's, giving up four runs on seven hits and a walk over six innings. He struck out a season-high nine.
The southpaw didn't get enough run support to survive his mistakes, including a Matt Olson solo shot in the sixth inning. Rodriguez tossed 63 of 99 pitches for strikes, and he'll take a 4.15 ERA and 42:7 K:BB through 39 innings into his next outing.
