Eduardo Rodriguez throws two simulated innings on Saturday

Red Sox LHP Eduardo Rodriguez threw two simulated innings on Saturday.

Fantasy Impact

The southpaw will make his Grapefruit League debut at some point next week. Rodriguez missed the entire 2020 season after being diagnosed with myocarditis following a bout with COVID-19. He's likely undervalued in early fantasy drafts because of it, though his ADP could rise with a strong start to the spring.

Eduardo Rodriguez a full go for Spring Training

Red Sox manager Alex Cora said Eduardo Rodriguez is a “full go” to start Spring Training.

Fantasy Impact

Rodriguez threw a bullpen session and was in good spirits. “He's a full-go,” said Cora. “He's in good spirits. He's in great shape, worked hard during winter. Very excited to have a full season and see what he can do." Rodriguez developed myocarditis as a result of COVID-19 and missed all of 2020. The left-hander made a full recovery and is targeting Opening Day as a return date. E-Rod owned a 3.81 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and a 213:75 K:BB across 203 1/3 innings in 2019.

Eduardo Rodriguez (myocarditis) to have no restrictions entering spring

Red Sox GM Bryan O'Halloran says LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (myocarditis) will have no restrictions entering spring training.

Fantasy Impact

"It’s a normal offseason. ... He’s a regular player," O'Halloran said. Rodriguez didn't pitch at all this past season following a heart condition caused by COVID-19. This is fantastic news to hear that he should be okay entering 2021. E-Rod posted a 3.81 ERA with 213 strikeouts in 203 1/3 innings back in 2019.

Eduardo Rodriguez inks one-year deal with the Red Sox

The Red Sox signed LHP Eduardo Rodriguez to a one-year, $8.3 million contract on Tuesday.

Fantasy Impact

Rodriguez missed all of last season due to myocarditis and COVID-19. He is is expected to be 100 percent for the start of the 2021 season. ERod was terrific in 2019, posting a (19-6) record along with a 3.81 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and a 213:75 K:BB over 203 1/3 innings. The 27-year-old LHP will compete for one of the top spots in Boston’s rotation in 2021.

Eduardo Rodriguez (myocarditis) expects to be 100 percent for 2021

Red Sox LHP Eduardo Rodriguez (myocarditis) told MLB Radio that he expects to be "100 percent" for the start of the 2021 regular season.

Fantasy Impact

This is fantastic news after Rodriguez missed the entire 2020 campaign. The 27-year-old was diagnosed with an inflammatory heart condition after coming down with COVID-19 this summer. He experienced some brutal symptoms and even had trouble walking at one point, but he's on track to be ready to go for spring training. The Red Sox could surely use Rodriguez's arm next year.
