Nationals' Jefry Rodriguez: Sent to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (shoulder) was reassigned to minor-league camp Sunday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

The 27-year-old signed with the Nationals as a non-roster invitee in December and was expected to compete for a bullpen spot, but he has yet to see game action in spring training due to shoulder stiffness. Manager Dave Martinez recently indicated Rodriguez hasn't received clearance for mound work, so it's unclear when he's expected to be fully recovered from the injury.

Nationals' Jefry Rodriguez: Tending to stiff shoulder
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Nationals manager Dave Martinez said Wednesday that Rodriguez is dealing with a stiff shoulder and has yet to receive clearance for mound work, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.

On a more encouraging note, Rodriguez is able to play catch off flat ground, so he could soon be cleared for a bullpen session. After Rodriguez mostly worked as a starter since making his big-league debut in 2018, the Nationals are viewing him exclusively as a reliever this season, so he shouldn't require a lengthy build-up period while working through the shoulder issue. The non-roster invitee still seems more likely than not to open the season at Triple-A Rochester.

Nationals' Jefry Rodriguez: Shifting to relief role
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez is now considered a reliever, Matt Weyrich of NBC Sports Washington reports.

Rodriguez has made 16 starts and 12 relief appearances thus far in his career. He's fared far better out of the 'pen, albeit in just 16.1 innings of work, as his 2.76 ERA in that role comes in at less than half of his 5.68 ERA as a starter. It's possible the transition helps him reach a new level, as he could shelve his largely ineffective changeup if he doesn't have to worry about facing hitters multiple times. Rodriguez is merely in camp as a non-roster invitee however, so he's seemingly a long shot to break camp with the team in any role.

Nationals' Jefry Rodriguez: Returns to Washington
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (shoulder) agreed Sunday with the Nationals on a minor-league contract that includes an invitation to big-league spring training, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

Rodriguez signed with the Nationals in 2012 as an amateur out of the Dominican Republic, working his way up the system for six years before making his MLB debut in 2018. He was then dealt to Cleveland following the 2018 season in the trade that sent catcher Yan Gomes to Washington, but Rodriguez never found much opportunity during his two seasons with the club. He ended up spending most of the 2020 season on the shelf with a right shoulder sprain, prompting Cleveland to non-tender him earlier this month. Washington will bring back Rodriguez to see if he can bolster the organization's rotation depth at the Triple-A level, though he'll first need to prove that the shoulder concern is behind him during spring training.

Jefry Rodriguez: Hitting free agency
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (shoulder) was non-tendered by the Indians on Wednesday.

The 27-year-old was dealing with lower back pain when he reported to summer camp in July and eventually landed on the 45-day injured list with a shoulder sprain. Rodriguez had a 4.63 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 33:21 K:BB over 46.2 innings during 2019 but has dealt with numerous injuries over the past couple years.

Indians' Jefry Rodriguez: Out with shoulder strain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez was placed on the 45-day injured list with a right shoulder sprain Wednesday.

The transaction rules the righty out for the remainder of the season, though he hadn't thrown any big-league innings this year, so his absence won't be a particularly significant one. Whether or not he'll be up to full speed for the start of next year's spring training remains to be seen.

Indians' Jefry Rodriguez: Sent to alternate camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez was sent to the Indians' alternate training site Saturday while battling lower back pain, Mandy Bell of reports.

Rodriguez's back has prevented him from ramping up his workload over the last two weeks, and he'll head to the team's Lake County facility to continue his recovery ahead of the regular season. It's unclear how much time he'll miss as a result, but the move likely guarantees that he won't be part of Cleveland's bullpen to begin the season. The right-hander gave up 10 earned runs over 7.2 innings during spring training.

Indians' Jefry Rodriguez: Likely headed to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez was on the outside looking in on a roster spot when spring training was postponed, Mandy Bell of reports.

The battle for the final two spots in the rotation was down to Aaron Civale, Zach Plesac and Adam Plutko, according to Bell, and since Plutko is out of options and Rodriguez still has one option year left, Plutko would be the logical long reliever if he misses out on a rotation spot. Rodriguez gave up 10 earned runs in 7.2 innings this spring.

Indians' Jefry Rodriguez: Gets ball for spring opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez will start Saturday in the Indians' Grapefruit League opener against the Reds, Paul Hoynes of The Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Cleveland has opted to begin their spring schedule by pitching some of their lesser-experienced rotation candidates early on, with Rodriguez set to be followed by Scott Moss on Sunday and Zach Plesac on Monday. Rodriguez posted a 2.92 ERA across his first four starts with the Indians in 2019 before going 0-3 in his final four games following a three-month absence with right shoulder soreness. The 26-year-old right-hander received high-praise from manager Terry Francona regarding his offseason efforts, "Jefry worked so hard and did so much this offseason -- he practically lived out there," Francona said. Rodriguez is scheduled to pitch two innings Saturday and will be followed by Logan Allen, Adam Cimber and Phil Maton among others.

Indians' Jefry Rodriguez: Back from injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (shoulder) was activated off the 10-day injured list Friday, Mandy Bell of reports.

Rodriguez has made six minor-league rehab appearances since mid-August and is good to rejoin the Indians after going down with a right shoulder strain at the start of June. The 26-year-old seems likely to work out of the bullpen since he topped out at 45 pitches during the rehab stint.

Indians' Jefry Rodriguez: Throws two perfect innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (shoulder) threw two perfect innings with two strikeouts for Triple-A Columbus in a win over Gwinnett in Game 1 of the Governors' Cup Semifinals on Wednesday.

The right-hander continued his rehab assignment into the International League playoffs after fitting in only two appearances with Columbus before the end of the regular season. Overall, he has allowed one run on four hits and three walks over 7.1 rehab innings with the Clippers. The Indians can leave him down for a while if they want, but Rodriguez appears ready to go.

Indians' Jefry Rodriguez: Moving rehab to Triple-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (shoulder) will continue his rehab assignment with Triple-A Columbus on Tuesday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

Rodriguez has made three rehab appearances over the past 10 days, allowing one run while striking out four across 4.2 innings in those outings. It remains to be seen how many additional rehab appearances Rodriguez will need before being cleared to rejoin the Indians, or what role he'll assume once healthy.

Indians' Jefry Rodriguez: Set to throw Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (shoulder) will pitch one inning in Arizona on Friday, Zack Meisel of The Athletic reports.

Rodriguez has been on the 10-day injured list since June 4 with a right shoulder strain, but his recovery seems to be progressing well as he continues his throwing program. The 26-year-old could still be several weeks from a return as he'll likely still need to face live hitters and a possible rehab assignment prior to a possible return to the major-league squad.

Indians' Jefry Rodriguez: Side session on tap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (shoulder) is scheduled to throw a bullpen session Friday in Arizona, Mandy Bell of reports.

Rodriguez has been on the shelf since June 4 due to a right shoulder strain, and he's finally been given the green light to toss his first bullpen session since suffering the injury. He'll likely need to fire at least a few bullpens before advancing to facing live hitters and ultimately a rehab assignment.

Indians' Jefry Rodriguez: Close to throwing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (shoulder) is scheduled to play catch in Cleveland in the coming days, Ryan Lewis of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Rodriguez has been shut down from throwing since landing on the injured list at the beginning of June with a right shoulder strain. The right-hander is expected to head to Arizona after he resumes throwing, at which point the Indians will lay out a schedule for the rest of his throwing program.

Indians' Jefry Rodriguez: Facing multi-week absence
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Indians' Jefry Rodriguez: Shifts to injured list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Indians' Jefry Rodriguez: Heading for MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez will undergo an MRI on his right shoulder after exiting Saturday's start versus the White Sox, Mandy Bell of 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.

Indians' Jefry Rodriguez: Exits with lat tightness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Indians' Jefry Rodriguez: Hit hard in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
