  • Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Quality start in no-decision

    Rodriguez allowed three runs on six hits, a walk and a hit batsman while striking out seven in six innings in a 7-6 extra-inning loss in Game 1 of Tuesday's doubleheader in Seattle. He did not factor into the decision.

    Rodriguez ran into trouble in the third inning as Curt Casali and Mitch Haniger each put balls into the seat, resulting in three runs being scored. Rodriguez otherwise held the Mariners in check and induced two groundball double plays. It was his fourth straight start of at least six innings. He ends his first year in Detroit with a 4.05 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 72:34 K:BB in 91 innings across 17 starts.

  • Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Cruises to win Thursday

    Rodriguez (5-5) tossed 6.2 scoreless innings to earn the win Thursday against the Royals. He allowed five hits and four walks while striking out three.

    The four walks were a bit high, but it was otherwise a stellar outing for Rodriguez. The lefty has now registered three straight quality starts, with wins in two of those games. Rodriguez was out due to personal reasons for about two and half months, so he's only made 16 starts to date in his first season with the Tigers. He could be primed for a strong 2023 campaign if he makes 30 or more starts, which he did in his previous two seasons heading into this year. Rodriguez is lined up to make one final 2022 start Tuesday against the Mariners.

  • Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Earns win in quality start

    Rodriguez (4-5) picked up the win Friday against the White Sox, giving up three runs on eight hits across six innings. He struck out three batters and walked one.

    While the outing was good for both a win and a quality start, it can hardly be considered a dominating outing. The lefty allowed one run on a Jose Abreu single in the third inning and two more on an AJ Pollock homer in the sixth. Rodriguez is in line to face the Royals at home and the Mariners on the road to close out the year.

  • Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Strikes out seven batters

    Rodriguez did not factor into the decision against the White Sox on Saturday, allowing two runs on two hits while striking out seven batters and walking two over 6.1 innings.

    Rodriguez pitched well enough to win the game Saturday but did not factor into the decision, as the game went into extra innings. The lefty picked up a quality start in the outing, his second this month and his seventh of the season. This has been a rough month for Rodriguez, as he has given up 15 earned runs across 22.1 frames for a 6.04 ERA. Perhaps his outing Saturday will help get him on the right track. He will take a 4.35 ERA into his next appearance.

  • Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Takes fifth loss

    Rodriguez (3-5) allowed five runs on 10 hits across five innings to take the loss Monday against the Astros. He walked one and struck out two.

    Houston has a stacked lineup and it made Rodriguez work, as the lefty allowed a season-high 10 hits. Rodriguez was better in his last start, allowing just three runs across seven innings, but this is the second time in his last three outings allowing five or more runs. All told, the 29-year-old now has a 4.50 ERA across 66 innings this season. Rodriguez will look for better results his next time out, which is currently scheduled for Saturday against the White Sox.

  • Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Quality start in no-decision

    Rodriguez tossed seven innings, giving up three runs on five hits while striking out four in Tuesday's extra-inning loss to the Angels. He did not factor into the decision.

    Rodriguez gave up three solo homers in the first two innings before pitching five scoreless frames to end his outing. The left-hander was taken off the hook for a loss when the Tigers scored a run in the top of the eighth, evening the score at 3-3. He has now produced strong efforts in three of his four starts since returning to the team Aug. 19 after an extended absence due to a personal matter, producing a 3.69 ERA over 22 innings. Rodriguez now owns a 4.13 ERA and 1.33 WHIP with 50 strikeouts over 61 frames in 12 outings this season.

  • Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Surrenders five runs

    Rodriguez (3-4) allowed six runs (five earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out five across four innings to take the loss Thursday against Seattle.

    Rodriguez allowed at least one earned run in three of his four innings. He served up back-to-back homers to begin the second frame and then proceeded to allow four hits -- leading to three more runs -- in the fourth inning. Entering Thursday's start, Rodriguez had allowed only one earned run across 11 innings since rejoining the active roster Aug. 21. For the season, he owns a 4.17 ERA with a 46:25 K:BB across 54 innings.

  • Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Tosses quality start, earns win

    Rodriguez (3-3) picked up the win against Texas on Saturday, allowing one run on six hits and three walks while striking out two batters over six innings.

    Though Rodriguez allowed a fair amount of traffic on the bases, he was able to make it through six innings on just 78 pitches. He was helped by three double plays and pitched to contact, as the left-hander induced only two swinging strikes. Rodriguez has looked good since returning from a lengthy stay on the injured list Aug. 21, earning a pair of wins and allowing only one run over 11 innings across two starts.

  • Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Five scoreless in return

    Rodriguez (2-3) earned the victory Sunday over the Angels, striking out five in five shutout innings while allowing four hits and three walks.

    Rodriguez (personal) made his first start since May 18 after dealing with a rib injury and a personal issue over the last three months. Three times Sunday the lefty had two runners on and one out; in each case, he worked his way out of trouble. He tossed 78 pitches -- 45 strikes -- and may have a pitch limit as he works his way back to full strength. The 29-year-old has a 3.89 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 39:20 K:BB in 44 innings across nine starts this year. His next start will likely be at the end of next week in Texas.

  • Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Activated, starting Sunday

    Rodriguez (personal) was activated from the restricted list Friday, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    He is confirmed to start Sunday's game against the Angels. Rodriguez had a 1.29 ERA, 0.86 WHIP and 22:3 K:BB in 14 innings across three rehab starts this month in the minors, most recently building up to six innings at Triple-A on Tuesday.

  • Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Joining big-league rotation Sunday

    The Tigers plan to reinstate Rodriguez (personal) from the restricted list and have him start Sunday's game against the Angels, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Rodriguez will be rejoining the Tigers to make his first start since May 18, after his two-plus-month-stint on the restricted list was proceeded by a month-long stay on the 15-day injured list with a left rib cage sprain. He's been fully recovered from the injury for a while now, and after returning from personal leave Aug. 6 to begin his rehab assignment, Rodriguez has looked as dominant against minor-league hitters as could be expected. He ended the minor-league assignment on a high note Tuesday, when he struck out 11 over six innings of one-run ball for Triple-A Toledo. He tossed 72 pitches in that outing and shouldn't face any major workload restrictions when he slots back into the Detroit rotation Sunday.

  • Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Close to return

    Rodriguez (personal) will make his third rehab start Tuesday at Triple-A Toledo, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.

    Tuesday's outing will likely be Rodriguez's last in the minors before he meets with Tigers manager A.J. Hinch on Wednesday to discuss his next steps. If he's set to return to the big leagues, the left-hander could start for the Tigers as soon as Aug. 21 against the Angels. Rodriguez last pitched for Detroit on May 18 before being shut down with a rib cage injury and then landing on the restricted list to tend to a personal matter.

  • Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Sharp with Toledo

    Rodriguez (personal) allowed one hit and one walk while striking out six across five scoreless innings Thursday in a rehab outing with Triple-A Toledo, Jason Beck of MLB.com reports.

    Rodriguez stretched out to 53 pitches after he covered three frames in his first rehab appearance with Single-A Lakeland last weekend. The left-hander may make one additional rehab appearance, but he should be back in the Detroit rotation by the end of August, barring any setbacks.

  • Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Covers three frames in rehab start

    Rodriguez (personal) struck out five over three innings in his rehab start Saturday for Single-A Lakeland, giving up an earned run on three hits and one walk.

    The start with Lakeland was Rodriguez's first at any level since early June, when he was rehabbing a rib injury before he went on personal leave for nearly two months. Though he's fully healthy at this point, Rodriguez will need more time to build up after the extended absence before the Tigers reinstate him from the restricted list. According to Evan Woodbery of MLive.com, manager A.J. Hinch said that Rodriguez is expected to make his second rehab start Thursday at Triple-A Toledo. He'll likely make at least two starts with Toledo before slotting back into Detroit's rotation in the latter half of August.

  • Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Starting rehab stint

    Rodriguez (personal) will make a rehab start with Single-A Lakeland on Saturday, Cody Stavenhagen of The Athletic reports.

    The 29-year-old has recently been ramping up his throwing program and reported to the Tigers' extended spring training facility last weekend, and he's now been cleared for game action in the lower minors. Rodriguez has been away from the team since mid-May and will likely require multiple rehab starts before rejoining Detroit's starting rotation later in August. He's expected to throw about three innings and 50 pitches with Lakeland.
