The Arizona Diamondbacks have agreed to a four-year, $80 million deal with left-handed starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez.

Jon Morosi at MLB Network said just before this news, “Eduardo Rodríguez and the DBacks have had advanced discussions about a multiyear contract. A deal is not finalized, but the NL champions are among the finalists to sign him.”

Rodríguez spent the first six seasons of his MLB career with the Boston Red Sox. During this time, he picked up 64 wins, struck out over 1100 batters, and had an ERA of 4.16.

Rodríguez even won a World Series with the Red Sox in 2018. For the majority of the postseason run, he acted as a crucial piece out of their bullpen.

After those years with the Red Sox, Rodríguez has since played with the Tigers for the past two seasons. In 2023, he went 13-9 with a 3.30 ERA.

This will be a huge boost to an already loaded D-backs rotation in need of extra arms.
