The Boston Red Sox received some lucky news that there is no structural damage to the knee of their young starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez.
On Saturday, it appeared the Sox were about to face a major blow before the season even started. On the same pfp drill that Toronto’s Marcus Stroman tore his ACL last year, Eduardo almost did the same. He awkwardly came down on his right knew and was down for several minutes. He was able to walk off on his own power.
E-rod will take a few days off to rest his sore knee. The soon-to-be 23 year-old had a nice rookie season going 10-6 with a 3.85 ERA. He figures to be an important piece for the 2016 Sox rotation.
