The Boston Red Sox continue to make some moves with their bullpen as they gear up for the second half of the season. A day after Boston traded for Drew Pomeranz, it has called up Eduardo Rodriguez from Triple-A Pawtucket to start on Friday against the New York Yankees.
In six previous starts with the Red Sox this season, Rodriguez allowed 28 earned runs and 12 walks in 29 1/3 innings pitched. Rodriguez was sent down and had registered a 3.08 ERA and 1.05 WHIP across even starts. He missed the start of the season after he suffered a knee injury in spring training and it kept him out of action for more than a month of the season. If his knee is now healthy, in better condition than it was his last time up in Boston, he could offer a nice season-long starter in fantasy leagues. Though it's best for fantasy owners to wait and see if this is a long-term promotion or a one start trip.
