Red Sox Call Up Eduardo Rodriguez to Start versus Yankees on Friday

July 15th, 2016

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.
