  • D-backs Select Logan Allen, Transfer Eduardo Rodriguez To 60-Day IL

    Headshot for Logan Allen

    The D-backs announced Wednesday that they've selected the contract of left-hander Logan Allen from Triple-A Reno and transferred lefty Eduardo Rodriguez from the 15-day IL to the 60-day IL to open a roster spot. The Snakes also recalled righty Justin Martinez from Triple-A. Right-hander Luis Frias and left-hander Tommy Henry were optioned to Reno to...

  • Eduardo Rodriguez Moved To 60-Day Injured List

    Headshot for Eduardo Rodriguez

    The Arizona Diamondbacks moved left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez (shoulder) to the 60-day injured list on Wednesday. Rodriguez recently suffered a setback with his left shoulder and now won't be able to return to Arizona's starting rotation until late May. The oft-injured 31-year-old southpaw pitched well in his final season with the Detroit Tigers in 2023 but was in line for regression with his move to the desert. Now that he's been unable to stay healthy early on in 2024, fantasy baseball managers in mixed leagues should probably look for better options instead of keeping him stashed in an IL spot. The good news for the D-backs is lefty Jordan Montgomery is set to join the rotation to make his season debut later this week.

    The Diamondbacks are pausing Eduardo Rodriguez's throwing program after the southpaw reported continued lat tightness, manager Torey Lovullo told reporters (video provided by Arizona Sports). It's unclear for how long he'll be shut down, but it represents a setback in his efforts to make his team debut. Rodriguez suffered a lat strain during his fourth Spring...

  • Eduardo Rodriguez's Rehab Stalled

    Headshot for Eduardo Rodriguez

    Arizona Diamondbacks starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez (lat) is having his rehab paused after recently experiencing more tightness in his shoulder following a bullpen session. An MRI showed that there is still an issue with the strained left lat of Rodriguez, who has been shut down from throwing. After bagging a four-year, $80 million with the D-backs this past offseason, Rodriguez has had a miserable start to his tenure in the desert following an abysmal spring training. The 31-year-old Venezuelan left-hander's setback leaves his return timeline very murky, but fantasy managers shouldn't expect him back before the end of April at this point. Tommy Henry and Ryne Nelson will serve as starters in Arizona's rotation until E-Rod is ready to return, but the two hurlers are only low-end streamers in favorable matchups.

  • Eduardo Rodriguez Throwing Bullpen Sessions

    Headshot for Eduardo Rodriguez

    Arizona Diamondbacks left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez (lat) has started throwing bullpen sessions. He was removed from his Cactus League start on May 19 against the Chicago Cubs with left-lat tightness and was diagnosed with a strain after undergoing an MRI exam the following day. Even though E-Rod has made encouraging progress so far, the 31-year-old veteran southpaw is going to eventually need to go on a minor-league rehab assignment before the D-backs activate him from the injured list for his team debut. Rodriguez will have a starting rotation spot waiting for him when he's ready to go, although he's a prime candidate for regression in fantasy leagues after posting career-bests in ERA and WHIP in 2023 in his final year with the Detroit Tigers.

  • Eduardo Rodriguez Starts Throwing Program

    Headshot for Eduardo Rodriguez

    Arizona Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said that left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez (late) started his throwing program on Tuesday and appears to be ahead of schedule. Rodriguez threw from 60 feet on Tuesday, which was the first time he had done any throwing since suffering a left-lat strain in spring training on March 19. The 30-year-old veteran southpaw is still going to start his first year in Arizona on the injured list, but his stay there may not end up being a lengthy one. In any event, the Snakes still felt the need to add lefty Jordan Montgomery to their rotation on Tuesday. E-Rod had career-highs in ERA (3.30) and WHIP (1.15) in his final year in Detroit in 2023, but fantasy managers should be expecting regression from an injury-prone pitcher that has exceeded 160 innings just once in his eight major-league seasons.

    Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo told the club’s beat that left-hander Eduardo Rodríguez has been shut down from throwing due to a left lat strain, with Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic among those to relay the news. The lefty will open the season on the injured list but his timeline is unclear apart from that.…

  • Eduardo Rodriguez Will Open On Injured List

    Headshot for Eduardo Rodriguez

    Arizona Diamondbacks left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez (lat) has a left-lat strain and is going to be shut down from throwing, according to manager Torey Lovullo. Rodriguez will open the regular season next week on the injured list. The 30-year-old veteran southpaw left his Cactus League outing early on Tuesday with the lat injury and will now unsurprisingly not be ready for Opening Day next Thursday. E-Rod put up some career-best numbers in his final season with the Detroit Tigers in 2023 but was pretty fortunate to do so. The Venezuelan hurler has thrown over 160 innings just once in his eight major-league seasons, so fantasy managers shouldn't be super surprised that he's already injured to begin the 2024 campaign. At best, he's a stash candidate in deep-mixed leagues for rotation depth, but Rodriguez's durability issues aren't going away.

  • Eduardo Rodriguez Still Feeling Tightness, May Undergo MRI

    Headshot for Eduardo Rodriguez

    Arizona Diamondbacks left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez (lat) was still feeling some tightness in his left lat on Wednesday after being pulled from his Cactus League outing on Tuesday night, although the tightness wasn't as bad as Tuesday evening, according to manager Torey Lovullo. The D-backs have talked about the possibility of having Rodriguez undergo an MRI exam. The 30-year-old southpaw will probably go for an MRI if he's still feeling tightness in his lat on Thursday, and his availability for Opening Day is certainly up in the air right now. E-Rod managed career-highs in ERA (3.30) and WHIP (1.15) in 26 starts for the Detroit Tigers in 2023, but regression is likely coming for a pitcher that has had plenty of durability issues in his career -- he's gone over 160 innings pitched in one of his eight big-league seasons.

  • Eduardo Rodriguez Exits Game Early With Lat Tightness

    Headshot for Eduardo Rodriguez

    Arizona Diamondbacks left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez (lat) was removed from his Cactus League start against the Chicago Cubs after one inning on Tuesday due to left-lat tightness. Lat injuries usually are bad news for pitchers, but we'll have to wait and see what the Diamondbacks say about E-Rod's status on Wednesday. But with Opening Day just nine days away, the 30-year-old is now in danger of having to miss his first turn through the team's starting rotation. The Venezuelan hurler isn't a stranger to injuries in his career, as he's exceeded 160 innings just once in eight big-league campaigns. He's coming off career-bests in ERA (3.30) and WHIP (1.15) in 26 starts for the Detroit Tigers in 2023 while striking out 143 hitters in 152 innings, but regression should be expected, especially in a tougher division and if he's forced to start the year on the injured list.

  • Eduardo Rodriguez Won't Make Spring Debut Friday

    Headshot for Eduardo Rodriguez

    Instead of making his Cactus League debut on Friday, Arizona Diamondbacks left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez will throw live batting practice on a back field. Left-hander Tommy Henry will make the start in the spring training game on Friday against the Colorado Rockies in Rodriguez's place. There's nothing physically wrong with Rodriguez, but he'll get a little more work on the back fields before making his spring debut this year. The 30-year-old veteran southpaw joined the D-backs in free agency this offseason after a career-best 3.30 ERA and 1.15 WHIP with the Detroit Tigers while adding 143 strikeouts and 48 walks over 152 innings. Fantasy managers are going to want to expect some regression, especially since E-Rod has gone over 160 innings just once in his eight big-league seasons.

  • Eduardo Rodriguez To Start Cactus League Opener

    Headshot for Eduardo Rodriguez

    Arizona Diamondbacks left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez will start the team's Cactus League opener on Friday against the Colorado Rockies, according to manager Torey Lovullo. The Diamondbacks added Rodriguez to their starting rotation in the offseason by signing him to a four-year, $74 million deal in free agency, and he'll slot in behind Zac Gallen and Merrill Kelly as the club's No. 3 starter. The 30-year-old veteran southpaw went 13-9 with a career-best 3.30 ERA (3.66 FIP) and career-best 1.15 WHIP with 48 walks and 143 strikeouts in 26 starts covering 152 2/3 innings in 2023 in his second year with the Detroit Tigers. His 4.04 xERA indicates he was a bit lucky, though, and E-Rod allowed plenty of hard contact. Rodriguez will be moving to a much tougher division and is a bit of an injury risk, so fantasy managers should look to target him as more of a No. 4 starter in 2024 drafts.
