Boston, Massachusetts 2021-07-23 20:15:52 –
Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodríguez left the Friday match against the New York Yankees in the second inning after throwing just 25 balls.
The left-handed player retired from the side in turn the first time, but soon got into trouble the second time. Gary Sanchez walked, Gleyber Torres singled to the left and Brett Gardner doubled Sanchez to the left, making the Yankees 1-0.
After a while, the Red Sox gathered on the mound and helped manager Alex Cora guide Rodriguez to the dugout. Right-handed Phillips Valdéz was relieved and hit the side (he hit one batter) when the Yankees ran a loaded base.
The Red Sox had just recalled Valdes from Triple A Worcester earlier that day as he put right-handed Hirokazu Sawamura on the 10-day injured list due to inflammation of his right triceps. Valdes was 2-0 and the Red Sox played 20 games on Friday with an ERA of 4.24. It was his first Major League Baseball appearance since June 9th.
The reason for Rodriguez’s early exit is unknown. He didn’t seem to be hampered in any obvious or prominent way. Rodriguez had a serious attack with COVID-19 and myocarditis and missed the entire shortened season of 2020.
He participated in the match 7-5 at 5.19ERA, with one inning, two hits, one earned run, one strikeout and one walk on Friday’s final line.
