Eduardo Rodriguez has been the Boston Red Sox’s best starting pitcher this season.
The 26-year-old enters Tuesday night’s contest against the Texas Rangers two wins away from becoming just the fifth left-handed pitcher to win 20 games in a season for the Red Sox, joining Mel Parnell (1949, 1953), Lefty Grove (1935), Babe Ruth (1916, 1917) and Ray Collins (1914). Rodriguez currently is tied for the second most wins in Major League Baseball this season, and is just 8 2/3 innings away from reaching the elusive 200-inning threshold.
