Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez Activated Off Disabled List Before Start on Monday

Nearly seven weeks after he first sustained the right knee subluxation, Boston Red Sox starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez will return to the mound on Monday. The team activated Rodriguez off the disabled list in advance of his start against the Toronto Blue Jays.

The 24-year-old southpaw returns to a 3.54 ERA, 4.06 FIP and 9.59 K/9 across 61 innings pitched this season. Rodriguez made just 11 appearances, 10 starts, before he aggravated his nagging right knee and it is something the team will have to look into this offseason for potential surgery. But for now, Boston gets back a great back-end starter for its rotation.

Rodriguez's matchup against Toronto is likely one fantasy owners will want to avoid. He allowed nine home runs before his trip to the disabled list and against a Blue Jays lineup with Justin Smoak, Josh Donaldson and Jose Bautista, he'll certainly be at risk for some home runs on Monday.

If he can prove himself in this start and remain healthy, Rodriguez makes for a strong, mid-rotation fantasy starter who can offer strikeouts, quality starts and pick up some wins with a strong lineup backing him in Boston.
