Nothing was going to stop Eduardo Rodriguez from being with his Boston Red Sox teammates on Opening Day.
Rodriguez threw a simulated game in Worcester, Mass. at Polar Park on Friday. He threw 60 pitches through three innings of work. And according to Worcester Telegram & Gazette’s Joe McDonald, the southpaw wasted no time getting back to Boston.
“E-Rod quickly left Polar Park because he wanted to rejoin his teammates for opening day at Fenway,” McDonald tweeted.
Between rushing into Boston to cheer on his team and his 60 pitches in his simulated game, Rodriguez already is providing optimism for his fan base.
