Rodriguez struck out one and allowed five runs on six hits and three walks over three innings in a 10-6 loss to the Dodgers on Saturday. He did not factor into the decision.
Rodriguez allowed solo home runs to Joc Pederson and Yasiel Puig in the first inning and then exited in the fourth inning after allowing two hits and a walk without recording an out. The 26-year-old ended his rookie campaign on a sour note but still posted a 2.81 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 89:36 K:BB across 118.1 innings.
The 26-year-old continues to deal, as he ended up with yet another solid final line but got dealt an unlucky defeat after getting tagged with two unearned runs. He's been a revelation for San Francisco this season, posting a 2.30 ERA and a 1.07 WHIP through 109.1 innings. If there's any knock on his fantasy output, it would be that his 86 strikeouts aren't eye-popping, but it's hard to complain about any starting pitcher posting the ratios Rodriguez is during his time at the big-league level so far.
Rodriguez allowed one run on six hits in a no-decision against the Rockies on Tuesday, striking out six and walking one in six innings.
Rodriguez's only major blemish was a solo home run by David Dahl in the second inning, and he was in line for the win as the Giants took the lead in the top of the seventh but the bullpen couldn't hold. The 26-year-old rookie has now thrown 12 quality starts in 15 games started this year, sporting a 2.41 ERA and 1.05 WHIP while holding opponents to a .211 batting average this season. Rodriguez will take on the Braves in his next start at home.
Rodriguez was diagnosed with a Grade 1 right hamstring strain following an MRI on Friday afternoon. Manager Bruce Bochy said that he won't resume running until next week, Jeff Wallner of MLB.com reports.
This will likely sidelined Rodriguez for a few weeks, ruling him out for the rest of August at the very least. It's unclear when Rodriguez suffered this injury, as his latest start against Pittsburgh on Sunday was another in a string of impressive performances. Across five starts since the All-Star break, he's logged five quality starts, a 1.35 ERA and 0.66 WHIP with 28 strikeouts in 33.1 innings. He was officially placed on the 10-day DL on Thursday.
Rodriguez (hamstring) was placed on the 10-day disabled list Thursday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
The timing of this injury is particularly unfortunate as Rodriguez had truly begun to find his groove on the mound, notching 18 strikeouts over 21.0 innings in his last three starts while allowing just two earned runs (0.86 ERA) and 12 baserunners (0.57 WHIP) in that span. Rodriguez was due to start Friday, but now Casey Kelly will make the spot start. Rodriguez's hamstring strain will keep him out until at least late August.
