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.
Rodriguez won't make his previously scheduled start Thursday at Colorado following Wednesday's postponement, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic reports.
Wednesday's scheduled starter, Derek Holland, will instead take the mound Thursday, pushing Rodriguez back at least a day. The Giants have yet to announce their plans for the starting rotation beyond Thursday, though Rodriguez figures to re-enter the fray sometime this weekend against the Reds.
Rodriguez (3-4) allowed eight runs on eight hits with one strikeout and four walks across five innings in a loss to the Reds on Saturday.
The 26-year-old had many issues Saturday, but his problem keeping the ball in the park surfaced once again. He came into this start with a 1.5 HR/9 and then allowed four bombs Saturday night. Rodriguez has experienced control issues lately too, as he's walked eight batters in the last 13.2 innings. Overall, he is 3-4 with a 5.75 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 26 strikeouts in 36 innings. His next scheduled start is Thursday in Colorado.
Rodriguez (3-3) allowed six runs (four earned) on seven hits and four walks in three innings, taking the loss to the Yankees on Sunday. He struck out three batters.
Rodriguez had allowed four runs in the first two innings before Gleyber Torres took him deep for a two-run blast in the third. In his three previous starts, the 26-year-old had allowed just five runs with a 15:5 K:BB across 17.2 innings. His ERA jumped to 4.35 after throwing just 47-of-81 pitches for strikes on Sunday. Rodriguez will get an easier matchup against the Reds on Saturday.
Rodriguez (3-2) allowed two runs on three hits with four strikeouts and a walk across 5.2 innings during a victory against the Pirates on Sunday.
The only runs he yielded came on a two-run homer in the fourth. Rodriguez couldn't quite make it through the sixth inning, walking the final batter he faced, but the Giants bullpen secured his one-run win. Rodriguez is 3-2 with a 3.54 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 22 strikeouts in 28 innings this season. His next scheduled start is against the Yankees at home Sunday.
Rodriguez (2-2) earned the win against the Nationals on Tuesday by allowing one run on five hits across five innings. He struck out six and walked three.
Rodriguez certainly didn't have his best stuff Tuesday as he issued three walks after walking only a single batter over his first three starts, but he still battled his way through five solid innings to grab the win. The 26-year-old has a 3.63 ERA, 1.07 WHIP and 18:4 K:BB over 22.1 innings and lines up to take the mound Sunday at Pittsburgh.
Rodriguez (1-2) allowed two runs on four hits while striking out five and walking one in a loss to the Padres on Wednesday.
The 26-year-old was very sharp, but the solo homer he allowed in the sixth proved to be the difference. The Padres added an insurance run against the Giants' bullpen to win 3-1. Thanks in large part to only allowing one walk through three outings, Rodriguez has an excellent WHIP, but he's lagging behind in the other categories. He is 1-2 with a 4.15 ERA, 0.92 WHIP and 12 strikeouts in 17.1 innings. His next start is expected to be against the Nationals.
Rodriguez (1-1) allowed four runs on seven hits and struck out five with no walks across 5.1 innings during a loss to the Rays on Friday.
The right-hander yielded all four runs in the first inning, three of which came on two home runs. Rodriguez was a good first-inning pitcher as a rookie last year, and he posted a 0.7 HR/9, so it's not likely that this will becoming a reoccurring issue. He simply wasn't good out of the gate Friday. Rodriguez is 1-1 with a 5.23 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and seven strikeouts in 10.1 innings this season. His next start will probably come against the Padres.
Rodriguez (1-0) allowed two runs on four hits and zero walks while striking out two over five innings in a win over the Padres on Saturday..
Both runs Rodriguez yielded were inherited runners the bullpen allowed to score in the sixth. The only Padres baserunner in the first three innings came because of an error. Through five innings, Rodriguez had allowed just two hits and zero runs. It was a strong first outing for the 27-year-old looking to build upon his 6-4 record and 2.81 ERA from his rookie season last year.
