The Boston Red Sox have officially activated left-handed starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez from their 10-day disabled list, the club announced on Monday afternoon. The up-and-coming left-hander had been battling a lingering right knee injury while just recently completing his minor league rehab assignment.
In what has become corresponding roster moves, the Red Sox have also elected to option both infielder Tzu-Wei Lin and right-handed relief pitcher Austin Maddox down to Triple-A Pawtucket.
The 24-year-old southpaw is currently in the midst of his third big league campaign overall, all of which have come as a member of the Red Sox. Over the course of 11 regular-season appearances, 10 starts and an even 61 innings of work this time around, he has already produced a 3.54 ERA alongside a 4-2 record and 65 strikeouts against 21 walks.
It is also worth noting that his ERA would serve as a new single-season career-best mark if the 2017 regular season ended today.
For his big league career as a whole, Rodriguez has already made 52 regular-season appearances en route to 51 starts and a total of 289.2 innings of work. During that same span, he has notched a nearly even 17-15 record in addition to a 4.10 ERA. Adding 263 strikeouts against 98 walks, he has managed a 1.26 WHIP as well.
As a result of his recent reinstatement on Monday afternoon, Rodriguez will immediately return to the mound for Boston as the Red Sox take on the rival Toronto Blue Jays on Monday evening.
