Eduardo Rodriguez is seeing Red(Sox)…
The 27-year-old Venezuelan professional baseball pitcher, nicknamed E-Rod, has agreed to a one-year deal with the Boston Red Sox valued at $8.3 million for the 2021 season, according to ESPN.
Rodriguez, a left-hander, had been eligible for arbitration. Tuesday is the deadline for teams to tender contracts to arbitration-eligible players.
He didn’t pitch last season after testing positive for COVID-19 in July and later developing myocarditis, a heart condition associated with the disease.
In 2019, Rodriguez went 19-6 with a 3.81 ERA in 34 starts.
He’s scheduled to become a free agent after the 2021 season.
