Astros' Nivaldo Rodriguez: Sent to alternate training site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez was optioned to the alternate training site Friday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

The 24-year-old was recalled by the Astros during the second week of the season and surrendered a solo home run over three innings during his lone appearance. Rodriguez could return to the majors later in the season as Houston rotates its bullpen pieces.

Astros' Nivaldo Rodriguez: Recalled by Astros
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez was recalled by the Astros on Friday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

Rodriguez made his major-league debut during the abbreviated 2020 campaign, and he'll return to Houston's bullpen after Enoli Paredes (side) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move. Rodriguez made five relief appearances in 2020 and posted a 6.23 ERA and 2.42 WHIP in 8.2 innings.

Astros' Nivaldo Rodriguez: Moved to MiLB camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Astros optioned Rodriguez to their minor-league camp Sunday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

Rodriguez received the opportunity to make his big-league debut in 2020, but he didn't impress over his five appearances, logging a 6.23 ERA and 2.42 WHIP in 8.2 innings. The 23-year-old had worked as a starter in the minors prior to last season, so it's possible he slots into the rotation at either Triple-A Sugar Land or Double-A Corpus Christi.

Astros' Nivaldo Rodriguez: Rejoins major-league club
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez was recalled from the alternate training site Sunday, Jake Kaplan of The Athletic reports.

Rodriguez will rejoin the Astros ahead of the final game of the regular season with the team in need of bullpen depth. The 23-year-old has allowed four runs on 10 hits with three strikeouts and three walks over 4.2 innings this season, though he last appeared in a game Aug. 8.

Astros' Nivaldo Rodriguez: Sent to alternate training site
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez was optioned to the Astros' alternate training site Friday, Brian McTaggart of MLB.com reports.

The 23-year-old was promoted shortly after Opening Day but struggled in his first taste of the majors, allowing four runs on 10 hits over 4.2 innings. Rodriguez had previously never played above High-A, so he's unlikely to be a significant factor in Houston's bullpen plans this season.

Astros' Nivaldo Rodriguez: Called up by Houston
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez was recalled by the Astros on Monday, Chandler Rome of the Houston Chronicle reports.

The 23-year-old recorded an impressive 2.40 ERA and a 27.3 percent strikeout rate last season, but that came at the Low-A and High-A levels. Given the significant jump in talent level he's about to face, it would be a surprise to see him in anything other than a low-leverage relief role this year.

Astros' Nivaldo Rodriguez: Sent to minors camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Astros optioned Rodriguez to their minor-league camp Monday, Alyson Footer of MLB.com reports.

Houston shielded Rodriguez from the Rule 5 draft over the winter and added him to its 40-man roster, but the 22-year-old right-hander was never expected to break camp with the big club. He'll likely open the season with Double-A Corpus Christi after posting a combined 2.40 ERA, 0.99 WHIP and 114:35 K:BB across 105 innings between Low-A Quad Cities and High-A Fayetteville in 2019.
