Out with shoulder inflammation
PChicago Cubs
Shoulder
September 17, 2021
Rodriguez landed on the injured list with right shoulder inflammation Friday, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.
ANALYSIS
Rodriguez got lit up in his last four relief appearances, allowing 11 runs (eight earned) on 10 hits and five walks over just 2.2 total innings. Prior to that point, he'd recorded a 2.40 ERA and 1.00 WHIP in 15 innings of work, so there's reason to believe his sudden downturn may have been injury-related. He'll be eligible to return in the final week of the season, but the timing of the injury means there's a very real chance his season is already over.
