Eduardo Rodriguez is locked in for 2021.
After missing all of the 2020 campaign due to myocarditis as a result of his bout with COVID-19, Rodriguez and the Boston Red Sox reached a deal on a contract for 2021.
Getting a deal for the upcoming campaign done now is probably best for both sides. Reaching arbitration could’ve made for a messy and complicated process, as Rodriguez missed 2020 and historically has had consistency and health issues, but was a fringe Cy Young contender in 2019.
Rodriguez was in his final year of arbitration and is set to hit free agency next winter.
