The 'Wicked Big' Achilles Heel For The 2017 Red Sox

The 'Wicked Big' Achilles Heel For The 2017 Red Sox

As documented by The New York Post's Joel Sherman, the 2017 Red Sox—despite an impressive roster—have a major concern with their starting rotation. Only two pitchers—Chris Sale and 2016 Cy Young winner Rick Porcello—are 100% healthy. Everybody else is MASH Central. 'Porcello And Sale and pray for hail' is not exactly a solid foundation for a championship team. So, is Kyle Kendrick (who didn't pitch at all in 2016) the answer in the short term? Probably, but what if injuries persist with David Price, Eduardo Rodriguez, Steven Wright and Drew Pomeranz? That's a lot of salary potentially...

Red Sox vs. Twins lineup: The battle for the Mayor’s Cup

Red Sox vs. Twins lineup: The battle for the Mayor’s Cup

It’s, like, more important than the World Series. Every spring, the Twins and Red Sox play each other numerous times, since both clubs train in Fort Myers. Every spring, the team with the most wins against the other wins the Mayor’s Cup. I don’t want to say it’s the most important trophy, but rumors have it that Mookie Betts and Eduardo Rodriguez stayed home from the WBC because the Mayor’s Cup was more important.* *Note: This is not at all factual. Actually, they don’t even really compete for the trophy anymore, as our friends over at Twinkie Town explain. Either way, it’s a...

Drellich: Eduardo Rodriguez moving upward in Red Sox rotation

FORT MYERS — We’ll see how that $30 million elbow goes. Because if David Price’s arm bends the wrong way, the second best left-hander the Red Sox have behind Chris Sale in 2017 should be Eduardo Rodriguez.There have been plenty of reasons lately to be down on the Red Sox rotation. Not because of a lack of quality — Sale and Rick Porcello may still dominate — but because of the question marks practically everywhere else.Depth, health, repeat performances. Or a lack thereof.Rodriguez yesterday afternoon gave reason for some optimism. So too did his late-season performance in 2016 when...

Red Sox 2, Astros 6: The bullpen blows it

Eduardo Rodriguez was solid, but the bullpen couldn’t hold his lead. Donning their green St. Patty’s day caps, the Red Sox couldn’t come home with the victory on this, the most sacred Boston holiday. Eduardo Rodriguez continues to look solid When Venezuela advanced to the second round of the World Baseball Classic, Eduardo Rodriguez had a chance to join his country mates in San Diego. Instead, he chose to stay with the Red Sox and continue working towards what will hopefully be his first full, consistent season as a major leaguer. Friday marked his fourth start of the spring, and he...

Eduardo Rodriguez declines Venezuela's World Baseball Classic invitation

PORT CHARLOTTE, Fla. — Team Venezuela asked for Red Sox lefty Eduardo Rodriguez for the second round of the World Baseball Classic, but he’s not leaving camp. Rodriguez has had knee issues, and although he seems OK at the moment, the Sox would be foolish to let him out of their sight.“They requested him and he denied,” manager John Farrell said. “He decided to stay here. Given all that he'd come off of this winter, the treatment that he currently goes through, he's decided to remain here.”

FORT MYERS — Instead of discussing his health, the topic of conversation about Eduardo Rodriguez is now focused on his performance.That’s a most promising sign for both him and the Red Sox.“Last year, I wasn’t throwing in spring training, this is first time I’m feeling really good in spring training — I feel much better,” said Rodriguez after this four-inning stint in the Sox’ 6-5 spring loss to the Philadelphia Phillies. He allowed a home run to No. 9 hitter Roman Quinn and a triple to ex-Red Sox Daniel Nava, but Rodriguez pitched much sharper than those two pitches showed....
