Baysox in the Postseason: Eduardo Rodriguez

By Bowie Baysox | October 5, 2017 9:45 AM ET

With the MLB postseason upon us, keep an eye out for these five former Baysox who will be playing this October: LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (Red Sox), RHP Jake Arrieta (Cubs), LHP Brian Duensing (Cubs), OF Jayson Werth (Nationals) and C Matt Wieters (Nationals).


Rodriguez has spent the majority of the last three seasons as a member of the Red Sox rotation and has posted a 19-20 record with a 4.23 ERA in 66 games (65 starts).

This season, the 24-year-old is 6-7 with a 4.19 ERA in 25 appearances (24 starts) for manager John Farrell's club and posted a 2.77 ERA over his first 10 games.

Rodriguez's Red Sox open the American League Division Series on Thursday against the Houston Astros.

The southpaw led all American League rookies in wins (10) in 2015 and became the first Boston hurler since 1969 to post 10 or more wins and a sub 4.00 ERA before turning 23.

Rodriguez was originally signed by the Orioles as an amateur free agent in 2010 and spent four plus seasons in the organization before being traded to Boston as part of the deal that brought Andrew Miller to Baltimore in 2014.

The Valencia, Venezuela native pitched for the Baysox in parts of the 2013 and 2014 seasons, going 7-10 with a 4.55 ERA in 27 starts. Rodriguez was named the Eastern League Pitcher of the Week in the final week of the 2013 regular season after not allowing a run in his final 14.0 innings pitched, including eight shutout innings in a win at Binghamton.
