  • Red Sox's Joely Rodriguez: Signed by Red Sox

    Rodriguez (shoulder) signed a one-year contract with the Red Sox on Wednesday.

    Rodriguez will head to Boston after spending the 2022 campaign with the Mets, posting a 4.47 ERA and 1.35 WHIP with 57 strikeouts over 50.1 innings in 55 appearances. The 31-year-old sustained a shoulder injury in the postseason, the severity of which has yet to be disclosed, though he seems likely to be ready to go for spring training in February. Rodriguez will provide the Red Sox with another left-handed arm out of the bullpen. Based on his performance in 2023, the team has a club option to retain him for an additional season.

  • Mets' Joely Rodriguez: Out with shoulder injury

    Rodriguez was removed from the Mets' wild-card roster due to a shoulder injury, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports.

    The exact nature and severity of Rodriguez's injury are not yet clear, but the issue is evidently bad enough that he won't be able to pitch for at least this series as well as the NLDS, should the Mets advance. Taijuan Walker was added to the roster in his place.

  • Mets' Joely Rodriguez: Moves past neck issue

    Rodriguez (neck) was used in relief in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Marlins, retiring one of the five batters he faced while allowing two earned runs on two hits and two walks.

    Though he wasn't sharp Friday, Rodriguez at least appears to have moved past the stiff neck that kept him unavailable for a few games early last week. Rodriguez takes a 5.31 ERA and 1.60 WHIP for the season into Monday's series opener with the Cubs.

  • Mets' Joely Rodriguez: Dealing with neck stiffness

    Rodriguez was unavailable for Tuesday's loss to the Pirates due to neck stiffness, Tim Healey of Newsday reports.

    It's unclear when the neck issue first surfaced, but the left-hander last pitched Saturday versus Washington and delivered a scoreless frame. The Mets are likely to consider a stint on the injured list for Rodriguez ahead of Wednesday's doubleheader.

  • Mets' Joely Rodriguez: Notches fifth hold

    Rodriguez retired the only batter he faced on one pitch Sunday, recording his fifth hold of the season in a win over the Rockies.

    With two outs and two on in the eighth inning and the Mets nursing a 2-0 lead, Rodriguez was brought in to face Ryan McMahon and got him to line out to third base. Three of the lefty's last five appearances have lasted less than one inning, but his 3.86 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 18:7 K:BB through 14 innings on the year give him some deep-league fantasy value in formats that score holds.

  • Mets' Joely Rodriguez: Picks up first hold

    Rodriguez retired the only batter he faced to record his first hold of the season in Thursday's win over the Giants.

    After Carlos Carrasco gave up a two-out solo shot to Mike Yastrzemski in the eighth inning and got the hook, Rodriguez came in with the Mets ahead 5-2 and got Brandon Belt to pop out to end the frame. Rodriguez has been used in a situational role this season, working less than one full inning in three of his six appearances, and the journeyman southpaw's 9.64 ERA through 4.2 innings seems mostly a product of bad luck considering his 1.07 WHIP and 7:2 K:BB.

  • Mets' Joely Rodriguez: Dealt to Mets

    The Mets acquired Rodriguez from the Yankees on Sunday in exchange for Miguel Castro, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    The swap of relievers gives the Mets a much-needed lefty option, as Rodriguez becomes the only southpaw that's tentatively in the Mets' projected Opening Day bullpen. Rodriguez is expected to slot into the middle relief/setup ranks for the Mets after he accrued a 4.66 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 47:18 K:BB in 46.1 innings with the Yankees last season to go with one save and 13 holds.

  • Yankees' Joely Rodriguez: Back in action Thursday

    Rodriguez (neck) retired both of the batters he faced Thursday in the Yankees' 5-3 loss to the Phillies in Grapefruit League play.

    Rodriguez was making just his second appearance of the spring after he was idle for nearly a week due to a sore neck. The Yankees kept Rodriguez out in part because he had shown diminished velocity in his March 24 outing, but his fastball was touching 93 miles per hour Thursday, per Bryan Hoch of That's only one tick below his average velocity from the 2021 season, so Rodriguez is seemingly healthy and ready to go for Opening Day.

  • Yankees' Joely Rodriguez: Dealing with neck issue

    Rodriguez is receiving treatment for a pinched nerve in his neck Saturday, Bryan Hoch of reports.

    Although Rodriguez will face a slight delay in his spring schedule due to his neck injury, he's slated to throw live batting practice Monday. It's not yet clear whether the issue will force him to miss the start of the regular season, but it's encouraging that he'll be able to throw shortly after receiving treatment.

  • Yankees' Joely Rodriguez: Re-signs with Yankees

    Rodriguez agreed to a one-year, $2 million contract with the Yankees on Wednesday, Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports.

    The Yankees paid the left-hander's $500,000 buyout earlier in the week rather than exercise his $3 million club option for 2022, so the team ended up retaining him at a savings of $500,000. Rodriguez appeared in 21 games after being sent to New York from Texas and posted a 2.84 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 30:12 K:BB over 19 innings with the Yankees.

  • Joely Rodriguez: Club option declined

    Rodriguez's $3 million team option for 2022 was declined by the Yankees on Sunday.

    Rodriguez made a career-high 52 relief appearances in 2021 and will receive a $500,000 buyout from the Yankees as he prepares for free agency. The southpaw recorded a 4.66 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in 46.1 innings with the Rangers and Yankees last year.

  • Yankees' Joely Rodriguez: Notches hold against former club

    Rodriguez earned a hold against the Rangers on Monday by retiring one batter (via strikeout) after allowing one hit.

    The southpaw was summoned in the eighth inning with a runner at first base and two outs. He allowed an infield single to Nathaniel Lowe but struck out Nick Solak to end the threat. Rodriguez has 14 holds on the campaign, with four coming as a member of the Yankees. He has been a solid addition to New York's bullpen since coming over from Texas in late July, posting a 2.30 ERA, 1.21 WHIP and 15:5 K:BB across 15.2 innings.

  • Yankees' Joely Rodriguez: Collects first win with new team

    Rodriguez (2-3) earned the win Sunday versus Miami by retiring the only batter he faced.

    Clay Holmes put a runner on with two outs in the seventh inning, but Rodriguez was able to get a groundout to end the frame. The 29-year-old was in line for the win when the Yankees rallied for the lead in the top of the eighth. This was Rodriguez's first appearance since he was acquired from the Rangers in the Joey Gallo trade. Through 27.2 innings this year, the southpaw has a 5.86 ERA, 1.59 WHIP and 30:12 K:BB. While he logged nine holds in 31 appearances with the Rangers, he figures to see more of a middle-innings role with the Yankees.

  • Yankees' Joely Rodriguez: Dealt to Yankees

    Rodriguez will be traded from the Rangers to the Yankees, Bryan Hoch of reports. Joey Gallo will also be dealt to the Yankees, while the Rangers will acquire Ezequiel Duran, Trevor Hauver, Josh Smith and Glenn Otto.

    The Yankees acquired Clay Holmes earlier in the week in an effort to bolster their bullpen. Rodriguez will now further reinforce their pitching depth and provide another lefty for manager Aaron Boone to utilize. Rodriguez will look to improve his results with his new club, as he's struggled to a 5.93 ERA and 1.61 WHIP across 27.1 innings to this point in the campaign.
