Boston Red Sox SP Eduardo Rodriguez will be called up from Class AAA Pawtucket to start against the Texas Rangers Thursday, May 28. He was 4-3 with a 2.98 ERA in eight starts in the minors and struck out 44 in 48 1/3 innings. Manager John Farrell said the team will go with a six-man rotation for a turn, with the plan to return Rodriguez to the minors. The other starters will all be pushed back a day. Farrell acknowledged that it may be hard to send Rodriguez back down if he pitches well tomorrow. SP Joe Kelly has struggled this year, has minor league options left and could pitch out of the bullpen if necessary. The Red Sox are also looking for an opportunity to call up SP Brian Johnson, who is 5-3 with a 2.92 ERA in nine starts for Pawtucket.
Fantasy Tip: Rodriguez should be picked up in all AL-only leagues, and he even warrants consideration in deep mixed formats if he stays in the rotation. However, starting him at FantasyScore tomorrow for a cheap price seems too risky. Joe Kelly ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) will probably need to turn in a fine performance in his next start to avoid being bumped from the rotation.

Boston Red Sox SP Joe Kelly, after another poor performance against the Minnesota Twins Monday, May 25, could be bumped from the starting rotation in favor of SP Eduardo Rodriguez. Boston had already been thinking about bringing Rodriguez up from Class AAA Pawtucket, and it appears that Kelly has one more start to convince the team he belongs in the rotation.
Fantasy Tip: Kelly ($4,200, 8.4% of cap) has allowed at least five earned runs in three of his five starts in May. You shouldn't want to test the waters at FantasyScore with Kelly in what might be a make-or-break start in his next outing. For those in need of rotation help in AL-only leagues, put Rodriguez on your watch list.
