Sadly, this season may simply come down to waiting for Eduardo Rodriguez to join Price in the rotation. Oh, and have them both pitch like the guy who was signed for $217M is supposed to pitch.

Back in Fort Myers, left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez threw a 36-pitch simulated game that lasted two innings in his first game action since suffering a dislocated knee on Feb. 27.

“He threw the ball fine,” Farrell said.

Rodriguez will throw again tomorrow and will then get on a regular five-day throwing schedule as he works his way toward a rehab assignment. . . .Boston Herald

Sounds like a slow process. Or they just being careful? February is so 2 months ago. He won't be back till mid or late May from the sound of it.

They're being pretty deliberate. I get the impression that the knee was less stable than they thought at first and that got into his head a little bit so they slowed things down. A lot.

Eduardo Rodriguez threw 50 pitches in a simulated game in Fort Myers and is due to make an appearance in an extended spring training game soon. Back on a five-day schedule, Rodriguez will also have to make a rehab start or two with a minor league affiliate before he’s ready to go, making early May the most likely target for a return.

Good news on Rodriguez. Cannot wait to get him back in the line up to push Wright and Kelly down. He's our defacto number 2, sorry Buch.

Left-hander starter Eduardo Rodriguez, who suffered a knee injury early in spring training, will throw 60-65 pitches in Fort Myers on Monday. The team is hopeful that the next step will be him making a rehab start.

Red Sox manager John Farrell said on Dale & Holley Tuesday that Eduardo Rodriguez will miss Thursday’s rehab start in Pawtucket due to knee soreness.

“There’s been a little bit of a development here with Eduardo,” Farrell said. “He was scheduled for a start on Thursday. He was feeling some occasional soreness in that right knee. People have asked, ‘What are the updates on Eduardo?’ and the questions around velocity, the question around performance. I think any time you’re dealing with a pitcher and a player that’s coming back, you’re always kind of focusing in on that last five, 10 percent of effort. There’s been some restriction that Eduardo has felt, and as he has described this occasional soreness, we don’t want to put him at risk and we’re holding him out of that start on Thursday.

“He went through a full exam today with Dr. [Pete] Asnis. We’re continuing to work on his mechanics, the strengthening of the quad and knee area, so we don’t feel like for him to try to get that extra velocity puts him at risk. The thing that we fear is if he doesn’t feel right in his lower half, that added exertion is going to come from solely the arm, and that may show up in something we’re not seeing right now. We don’t want to put him at risk for a potential arm injury, so we’re backing him off the start on Thursday.weei.com
