A lightly-built lefthanded starter from Venezuela, Boston prospect Eduardo Rodriguez is a steadily-developing pitcher who could help out the BoSox of the near future. He's risen smoothly through the minors so far, and is getting very close to MLB-quality.
Rodriguez isn't a strikeout artist, at least not yet, but his excellent control and quality slider do seem to inspire poor contact from hitters, giving him excellent ground ball ability. His fastball, which can touch 95mph, is good enough thanks to its natural movement, but his changeup isn't special yet. Keep an eye on him when he starts to face more advanced hitters to see if they're fooled as easily as low-level ones have been.
