Red Sox NEWS View All  2016 MLB Draft Guide Is Here!

Eduardo Rodriguez believes he was tipping his pitches last season, but says the issue has now been resolved.

Even if Rodriguez was tipping his pitchers, hitters clearly had a hard time hitting what they knew was coming. Rodriguez had quite the rookie year going 10-6 with a 3.85 ERA in 21 starts. If he was in fact tipping pitches, his numbers should only improve. Rodriguez is now going to be under the tutelage of David Price. They have similar styles and both come from the left side. Rodriguez is in the perfect situation to improve mightily.
