Venezuelan left-handed pitcher Eduardo Rodríguez and the Detroit Tigers have reached an agreement for a five-year contract worth $ 77 million, sources confirmed to ESPN.
Rodriguez, 28, was 13-8 with a 4.74 ERA last season with the Boston Red Sox after missing all of 2020 due to coronavirus-related myocarditis.
Rodriguez was Boston’s best starter in 2019, finishing sixth in the AL Cy Young voting and posting a 19-6 record with a 3.81 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in 34 starts.
In seven seasons in Boston, Rodriguez was 64-39 with a 4.16 ERA.
The Athletic first reported Monday that Rodriguez and the Tigers had closed a deal.
