Rodriguez (5-6) picked up the win over the Diamondbacks on Thursday, hurling seven scoreless innings and giving up three hits and one walk while striking out four.
Rodriguez was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento earlier in the day and proceeded to pitch his finest game of the season. He did not allow any runners to reach second base and threw 61 of 95 pitches for strikes. The 27-year-old has been shuffled back-and-forth between the majors and Triple-A this season, posting a 4.79 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 46:26 K:BB in 71.1 innings with the Giants. It remains to be seen whether the dominant outing Thursday will earn him another start.
Rodriguez was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento ahead of his scheduled start against the Diamondbacks on Thursday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
As expected, Rodriguez will rejoin the big-league rotation Thursday after having his start with Sacramento skipped earlier this week. The 27-year-old has struggled through 64.1 major-league innings this season, posting a 5.32 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 42:25 K:BB. Williams Jerez was sent to the minors in a corresponding move.
Rodriguez will be recalled from Triple-A Sacramento to start Thursday at Arizona, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Rodriguez had his turn in Sacramento's rotation skipped earlier this week, so it's no major surprise to seem him penciled in for Thursday's start. The 27-year-old has struggled in the majors this season with a 5.32 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 42:25 K:BB over 64.1 innings.
Rodriguez is a candidate to start Thursday against the Diamondbacks, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
The Giants have yet to announce a starter for Thursday's series opener in Arizona, but Rodriguez seems to be the logical choice after he had his turn with Triple-A Sacramento skipped earlier in the week. The right-hander has struggled during his time in the majors this season, posting a 5.32 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 42:25 K:BB in 64.1 innings.
Rodriguez was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Thursday.
Rodriguez wound up returning for just a single start Thursday against the Phillies. He was optioned after allowing seven runs (four earned) in just three innings, bringing his season ERA up to 5.32. His absence clears a spot for Scooter Gennett, who was picked up in a deadline-day trade from the Reds. It's not clear who will take Rodriguez's place in the rotation.
Rodriguez (4-6) allowed seven runs (four earned) on eight hits with two walks and no strikeouts across three innings while taking a loss against the Phillies on Thursday.
This isn't how Rodriguez imagined he would return to the big leagues. The 27-year-old pitched well in his last outing July 15, but that was his only appearance for the Giants since June 30, as Rodriguez has spent his time at Triple-A. He gave up his first homer in the majors since June 19 and didn't strike out a batter for the first time in any start this year. Rodriguez has a 5.32 ERA, 1.48 WHIP and 42 strikeouts in 64.1 innings this season.
Rodriguez was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Wednesday.
Rodriguez is scheduled to start Thursday at Philadelphia and will make his way to the majors a day early due to the open roster spots created by trade deadline departures. The 27-year-old has a 4.70 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 34:17 K:BB in nine starts (46 innings) this season.
Rodriguez will be recalled from Triple-A Sacramento to start Thursday against the Phillies, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
The Giants opted to push rookie Shaun Anderson's next start back a day, opening up a spot in the rotation for Rodriguez, who owns a 4.99 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 42:23 K:BB in 61.1 big-league innings this season (18 appearances, nine starts). The 27-year-old Rodriguez could stick in the big-league rotation beyond Thursday's start should the Giants opt to dish one of their other starting pitchers before Wednesday's trade deadline.
Rodriguez was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Tuesday, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Rodriguez secured a victory in Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Rockies, surrendering just one run over five innings of work, but he'll head right back down to Triple-A following his spot start. Andrew Suarez was recalled in a corresponding move.
Rodriguez (4-5) picked up the win in Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader against the Rockies, giving up one earned run on four hits over five innings, striking out six and walking none in a 2-1 victory.
Making his first start with the big club since May 31, Rodriguez was sharp, posting five solid frames before departing after just 66 pitches. It was a nice outing, but the 27-year-old has struggled overall for the Giants this season, as he's got a 4.99 ERA and a 1.39 WHIP over 61.1 innings, so it remains to be seen if this was enough to earn him another turn in the big-league rotation.
Rodriguez was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Monday, Amy Gutierrez of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
As expected, Rodriguez will join the major-league squad and start the nightcap of Monday's doubleheader. Ray Black was optioned to Triple-A in a corresponding move.
Rodriguez will be called up as the 26th man to start Game 2 of Monday's doubleheader at Colorado, Kerry Crowley of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
Rodriguez was sent to High-A San Jose last week so he could continue pitching while Triple-A Sacramento was on break, and he'll rejoin the Giants for Monday's twin bill. The 27-year-old has a 5.27 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 36:23 K:BB over 56.1 innings and may return to the minors following the outing.
Rodriguez is a candidate to make a spot start in the second game of the Giants' doubleheader with the Rockies in Colorado on Monday, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports.
Rodriguez had been working in a long-relief role for the Giants for just over a month before being optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on July 1. After making one appearance in the Pacific Coast League, Rodriguez dropped down to High-A Rancho Cucamonga this week while the Triple-A affiliate was on break. He tossed 4.2 innings for Rancho Cucamonga on Wednesday and gave up two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out nine. The outing sets Rodriguez up to be available on his normal four days' rest should the Giants turn to him for the spot start in Colorado.
The Giants optioned Rodriguez to Triple-A Sacramento on Monday, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Rodriguez didn't find much success upon returning to San Francisco as a long-relief option in late May, as he served up 10 runs on 15 hits and six walks over 15.1 innings. He'll presumably slot back into the rotation at Sacramento in preparation for an eventual return to the big leagues if injuries or trades thin the Giants' starting depth.
Rodriguez gave up a run on two hits while striking out one over an inning of relief in Thursday's 5-1 loss to the Diamondbacks.
Rodriguez continues to pitch in long relief following a rough start to his sophomore season as a starter (5.05 ERA and 1.46 WHIP through eight starts). The 27-year-old has shown some flashes in his reduced role, but the overall results have remained mediocre (4.30 ERA, 4.9 K/9, 3.1 BB/9 as a reliever). It would likely take an injury or trade for Rodriguez to find himself back in the rotation this year.
Rodriguez failed to record an out Saturday, giving up four runs on two hits and two walks in a 7-2 loss to the Dodgers.
Rodriguez was brought in late to a close contest with the Giants' bullpen being used heavily over the past few days, but the results were ugly for the swingman. There were talks that the 27-year-old could rejoin the rotation with the back end of the rotation running hot and cold at times, but Saturday's meltdown will put those plans on hold, especially with two off days coming up next week. Rodriguez owns a rough 5.10 ERA and 1.4 K/BB over 47.2 innings this season.
Rodriguez could enter the Giants' rotation Friday against the Orioles when a fifth starter is next required, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
The Giants recalled Rodriguez from Triple-A Sacramento earlier in the weekend for the purpose of giving the big club some length out of the bullpen. He aced his first relief appearance by keeping the Diamondbacks off the board Saturday with two perfect innings, but it's unclear if that performance was enough to vault him back into the rotation. The Giants' decision to turn to Rodriguez or someone else for Friday's start may ultimately be determined by whether or not he's needed in relief at any point during the Giants' upcoming three-game series in Miami.
Rodriguez was recalled from Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday.
Rodriguez slumped to a 5.05 ERA in eight starts for the Giants to open the season before being demoted to Sacramento in mid-May. He appears to be back in a relief role this time around, with Trevor Gott (forearm) heading to the injured list in a corresponding move.
Rodriguez was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday.
Rodriguez has been unable to replicate his 2.81 ERA from his rookie season, stumbling to a 5.05 mark in his first eight starts of the year. He's likely to be given a chance to improve on that number at some point later in the season. Erik Kratz (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.
Rodriguez (3-5) took the loss after giving up four runs (none earned) on five hits and four walks while striking out two over five innings in Friday's 7-0 loss to the Reds.
Rodriguez struggled with his control yet again, throwing just 48 of 85 pitches for strikes and walking four batters for the third consecutive outing. Those who rolled with the 26-year-old weren't hurt by a Tyler Austin fielding error that kept all four of the starter's runs unearned. Even with the technically scoreless outing, Rodriguez only saw his ERA decrease to 5.05 through eight starts. Two key components of the righty's breakout rookie season were an ability to paint the corners and limit the long ball, and he has been unable to accomplish either of those goals over his last three starts (5:12 K:BB and 3.5 HR/9). Rodriguez's next scheduled start is a favorable home matchup against the Blue Jays next Wednesday, but it could be playing with fire given his recent control issues.
