Eduardo Rodriguez: Opts out of contract
Rodriguez opted out of his contract with the Tigers on Saturday and became a free agent, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.
Despite blocking a trade that would've sent him to the Dodgers ahead of the deadline, Rodriguez will opt out of his contract with three years left on his deal. The 30-year-old southpaw enjoyed the best season of his career in 2023, posting a 3.30 ERA and 1.15 WHIP with 143 strikeouts across 152.2 innings. Rodriguez should have plenty of suitors willing to give him a multi-year contract in the offseason.... See More ... See Less

Rodriguez (13-9) earned the win Sunday, allowing two runs on four hits and one walk over seven innings in a 5-2 win over Cleveland. He struck out five.
Rodriguez managed to go seven innings for a second start in a row, picking apart the Guardians lineup to close out the season on a high note. The southpaw put up a 3.89 ERA across 81 innings after returning in July from a finger injury, which may have factored into his decline from the 2.64 ERA he managed in 71.2 innings during the first half of the season. Rodriguez finished the campaign with a solid 3.30 ERA and 1.15 WHIP across 152.2 innings with 143 strikeouts.... See More ... See Less

Rodriguez (back) threw a bullpen session Friday without issue and has been cleared to start Sunday at Oakland, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Press reports.

Rodriguez (back) will throw a bullpen session Friday, Evan Petzold of the Detroit Free Pressreports.

Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Tending to back spasms
Tigers manager A.J. Hinch revealed after Monday's 8-3 loss to the Dodgers that Rodriguez was lifted in the fourth inning of the contest due to back spasms, ESPN.com reports.
More specifically, Hinch described Rodriguez's injury as a "scap" or scapula spasm, as the southpaw had apparently been dealing with pain near his shoulder blade when he called for a team trainer to visit him on the mound Monday. The decision was then made to remove Rodriguez from the game, with the 30-year-old taking the loss after getting charged with five runs on five hits and one walk over three frames. Rodriguez is scheduled to be re-evaluated Tuesday before the Tigers determine if he's fit to make his next turn through the rotation, which would likely fall Saturday or Sunday versus the Athletics....

Rodriguez (11-9) allowed five runs on five hits and a walk while striking out one over three innings to take the loss Monday versus the Dodgers.

Martinez did most of the damage with a solo home run in the second inning and a three-run blast one frame later.

Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Earns 11th win Thursday
Rodriguez (11-7) allowed three runs on four hits across six innings to earn the win Thursday against the Yankees. He walked four and struck out four.
Rodriguez matched his season high with four walks, but he was otherwise effective against New York to earn his second straight win and 11th of the year. The lefty had 13 or more wins in each of his last three seasons in Boston, but he fell back to just five victories in his first campaign with the Tigers last year as he missed significant time due to personal reasons. Rodriguez will look to keep rolling in his next scheduled start, which is slated for next week against the Reds.... See More ... See Less

Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Yields four runs to Astros
Rodriguez (9-7) took the loss Saturday, allowing four runs on five hits and four walks over 4.2 innings against the Astros. He struck out one.

The free pass was one of four dished out by Rodriguez, who set a season high in the category while tying his season-worst mark in strikeouts.

Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Earns ninth win in strong outing
Rodriguez (9-6) earned the win Sunday, allowing one run on four hits and one walk over 6.2 innings against the Guardians. He struck out six.
Rodriguez bounced back from allowing six runs in his previous start to dominate the Guardians. The only blemish came in the fourth when Ramon Laureano singled with two outs to drive in the lone Guardians' run. Rodriguez nearly made it through the seventh but was pulled with two outs in the inning following an infield single by Tyler Freeman. Rodriguez now holds a strong 3.03 ERA on the season with a 1.08 WHIP and 115 strikeouts in 113 innings. His next start is currently scheduled for Saturday in a home matchup with the Astros....

Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Struggles against former team
Rodriguez (8-6) allowed six runs on 10 hits across five innings to take the loss Sunday against the Red Sox. He walked one and struck out eight.
Rodriguez struggled in his matchup with Boston, the team he played for from 2015 through 2021 before joining the Tigers in free agency. The lefty was coming off of two good starts in which he allowed just two runs across 13 innings, and he still owns a strong 3.13 ERA for the season. This may be a blip on the radar for Rodriguez, who will look to get back on track in his next scheduled start, which is currently penciled in for Saturday against the Guardians.... See More ...

He's currently slated for a road matchup with the Red Sox this weekend in his next outing.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Earns win Wednesday
Rodriguez (7-5) allowed two runs on seven hits across six innings to earn the win Wednesday against the Pirates. He had one walk and five strikeouts.
A day after vetoing a potential trade to the Dodgers, Rodriguez looked sharp for the Tigers. The lefty now has a strong 2.96 ERA this season, and with the ability to opt out of his five-year, $77 million contract in the offseason, he could be angling for free agency and another big payday. For now, Rodriguez remains in Detroit, and he'll look to build some momentum in his next scheduled start, which is tentatively set for Tuesday against the Twins.... See More ... See Less
Tigers' Eduardo Rodriguez: Stays in Detroit, starts Wednesday
Rodriguez is listed as the Tigers' probable starting pitcher for Wednesday's game against the Pirates at PNC Park.
Rodriguez will be returning to the mound on seven days' rest, after the Tigers elected to push him back in the rotation in anticipation of him being moved ahead of Tuesday's trade deadline. According to ESPN.com, general manager Scott Harris said that Rodriguez invoked his no-trade clause to remain in Detroit, after several reports indicated that the Tigers had struck a deal with the Dodgers on Tuesday that would have sent the southpaw to Los Angeles. Rodriguez, who is in the midst of the best season of his career with a 2.95 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 91:21 K:BB across 88.1 innings, has the ability to opt out of his five-year, $77 million contract this offseason. If Rodriguez closes the 2023 campaign on a high note, there's a strong possibility that he elects to become a free agent in search of another big payday this winter.... See More ... See Less
