Eduardo Rodriguez injury update: Red Sox starter has 'serious damage' in right ankle

Red Sox starter Eduardo Rodriguez is headed to the disabled list.

The 27-year-old left hander has serious damage in his right ankle, Boston manager Alex Cora told Sunday. Rodriguez will wear a boot for two weeks and then will be re-evaluated.

The injury does not require surgery, Cora said.

Rodriguez originally suffered the injury Saturday when he was covering first base in the Red Sox’s 6-2 win over the Blue Jays. He threw 5 1/3 scoreless innings in the game.

Rodriguez, who has spent all four of his MLB seasons with the Red Sox, has registered an 11-3 record and a 3.44 ERA in 19 starts in 2018. 

The Red Sox currently lead the American League East with a 68-30 record.
