Eduardo Rodriguez To Start For Sox Thursday

We've been lobbying for this since at least March 18th—bring up phenom left-handed starter Eduardo Rodriguez! While the Red Sox are not committing to anything beyond this Thursday's start against the Rangers, don't be surprised if Rodriguez sticks and someone else (Joe Kelly?) heads to the bullpen. So far this year, the 22-year old Venezuelan is 4-3 with a 2.98 ERA at AAA. He's walked just seven and struck out forty-four in 48.1 innings for the PawSox. Rodriguez could turn out to be a major steal—after being picked up in the deal last year with Baltimore for Andrew Miller. Stay tuned!
