2022 Player Outlook
Rodriguez didn’t pitch in 2020 due to a health issue, and despite a 4.74 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in 2021, it isn’t hard to see why Detroit heavily pursued the former Boston southpaw. He posted a 10.56 K/9 across 157.2 innings of work last season, and his 9.10 K/9 and 3.18 BB/9 career marks are solid. Detroit needed an established presence in their otherwise young rotation, and Rodriguez can fill that void. Wins might be a bit tougher to come by in 2022 for Rodriguez compared to his time in Boston, but he should enhance your team’s ratios.
