E-Rod Will Not Return Until Second Week Of May

Eduardo Rodriguez
Stop us if you've heard this party line before, but the Red Sox now officially say Eduardo Rodriguez will return to the rotation—at the earliest—during the second week of May. This assumes no hiccups in his rehabilitation schedule—which includes pitching in six "game" settings. What was once described as a "minor" injury will now have a major impact on the rotation in the first month-and-a-half of the season—which, by the way, includes seven meetings with AL East Champ Toronto. We will spare you another one of our rants on the Red Sox 'medical team'—you know the story already.
