Player Outlook
Grayson Rodriguez's overall numbers were not impressive, but you see a better story once you break down his season. He surprisingly opened the season with Baltimore, but went 2-2 in 10 starts with a 7.35 ERA as he struggled with homers allowing 13 home runs in 45.1 innings around 56 strikeouts and 21 walks. The front office sent him down to AAA Norfolk where he shoved to a 4-0 record with a 1.96 ERA over 8 starts with improved command, which earned him a recall to the big leagues during the All-Star break. From there, all he did was go 5-2 with a 2.58 ERA over his final 13 starts while allowing 3 homers in 76.2 innings with 73 strikeouts and 21 walks. Rodriguez ramped up his fantasy stock with his summer performance, but it comes at a cost as he increased his workload 118% from 2022 to 2023 jumping from 75.2 innings to 165 when factoring in his regular and postseason work. His previous season high was 103 innings in 2021, so keep that in mind as you consider reaching for his upside on draft day.

  • Orioles' Grayson Rodriguez: Victorious once more

    Rodriguez (7-2) picked up the win Sunday against Tampa Bay, allowing two runs on two hits and one walk across 5.2 innings. He struck out six. Rodriguez retired the first 15 batters he faced Sunday but got into trouble during the sixth before exiting. After walking the leadoff batter in the sixth, Rodriguez generated a strikeout and a lineout but got the hook after allowing back-to-back singles. Still responsible for runners on first and third, Rodriguez was charged with a second earned run when Randy Arozarena hit an RBI single off Dillon Tate. Rodriguez has earned seven wins in 11 starts this season, owning a 3.21 ERA with a 10.1 K/9. He's on track to make his next start during a home series against the Phillies next weekend.

  • Orioles' Grayson Rodriguez: Sharp in win

    Rodriguez (6-2) picked up the win Monday against Toronto, allowing two runs (one earned) on seven hits and zero walks while striking out four over 6.2 innings. The only earned run allowed by Rodriguez was a solo home run by Vladimir Guerrero in the fourth inning. The 24-year-old set a new season-best with 6.2 innings pitched Monday, turning in his fifth quality start of the season. Rodriguez has found his groove over his past five starts -- in that span, the right-hander owns a 2.16 ERA and 31:12 K:BB in 29.1 innings. Rodriguez will look to keep rolling in his next start, currently scheduled for this weekend in Tampa.

  • Orioles' Grayson Rodriguez: Activated from IL

    The Orioles reinstated Rodriguez (shoulder) from the injured list to start Saturday's game against the Mariners. Rodriguez, who landed on the injured list May 1 with right shoulder inflammation, will return to the Orioles' rotation without making a rehab appearance in the minors. The 24-year-old right-hander threw 30 pitches in a bullpen session Sunday, though it's unclear how many pitches he's built up to since then, making it possible he works under a pitch count while facing the Mariners. Mike Baumann was designated for assignment in a corresponding move.

  • Orioles' Grayson Rodriguez: Return this weekend not ruled out

    Orioles manager Brandon Hyde said Monday that it's "possible" that Rodriguez (shoulder) will return from the 15-day injured list to make a start this weekend against the Mariners, Matt Weyrich of The Baltimore Sun reports. Rodriguez got through a 30-pitch bullpen session Sunday with no issues and felt fine the day after. The right-hander will throw another bullpen session in the coming days, but his next step beyond that hasn't yet been determined. Rodriguez has been out since the beginning of May with right shoulder inflammation.

  • Orioles' Grayson Rodriguez: Resumes throwing program

    Rodriguez (shoulder) played catch from 60-to-75 feet Sunday, Jacob Calvin Meyer of The Baltimore Sun reports. Rodriguez landed on the injured list with shoulder inflammation following his April 29 start against the Yankees, and he ended up being shut down from throwing for only a few days. The right-hander could soon ramp up to bullpen sessions, and it remains to be seen if he'll require a minor-league rehab assignment before rejoining Baltimore's rotation.

  • Orioles' Grayson Rodriguez: Hits IL with shoulder inflammation

    The Orioles placed Rodriguez on the 15-day injured list Wednesday with right shoulder inflammation, Danielle Allentuck of TheBaltimoreBanner.com reports. Rodriguez showed no signs of being hindered by an injury in his last start against the Yankees on Monday, striking out three over 5.2 scoreless innings. However, the right-hander's shoulder is evidently bothering him enough that he will miss a least the next two weeks of action. John Means (forearm) was activated from the 15-day IL in a corresponding move and will replace Rodriguez on the 26-man active roster and in the rotation.

  • Orioles' Grayson Rodriguez: Narrowly misses quality start

    Rodriguez allowed two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five batters over 5.2 innings in a no-decision against Boston on Thursday. Rodriguez gave up a pair of runs in the first inning but settled down thereafter, holding the Red Sox scoreless over the remainder of his outing. He was in line for the loss upon his departure but ended up with a no-decision as a result of the Orioles putting together a late rally. Rodriguez logged his shortest start and lowest strikeout total of the campaign, which goes to show how well he's pitched thus far. Through three starts, the 23-year-old has recorded a 2.50 ERA, 1.17 WHIP and 21:5 K:BB across 18 innings.

  • Orioles' Grayson Rodriguez: Will start Game 2

    Rodriguez will start Sunday in Game 2 of the ALDS against the Rangers, Roch Kubatko of MASNSports.com reports. The rookie right-hander will be following Game 1 starter Kyle Bradish. Rodriguez got sent back to the minors following a slow start to the season but was dynamite after returning, posting a 2.58 ERA and 73:21 K:BB over his final 76.2 frames covering 13 starts. That includes a 2.17 ERA and 32:7 K:BB over 29 innings in September.

  • Orioles' Grayson Rodriguez: Allows one run in win

    Rodriguez (7-4) earned the win Wednesday, allowing one run on six hits over 5.2 innings against the Nationals. He struck out five and did not issue a walk. Rodriguez surrendered only one hit over the first four frames before giving up three in the fifth, which would lead to one run coming home for Washington. The young right-hander would then allow hits to two of the first four batters he faced in the top of the sixth before being relieved by Danny Coulombe. Rodriguez has now won five of his last six decisions (spanning eight starts) and has continued to lower his ERA with each passing month, culminating in a 2.17 ERA in September. .

  • Orioles' Grayson Rodriguez: Strikes out seven in no-decision

    Rodriguez did not factor into the decision Thursday, allowing two runs on five hits and three walks over five innings in a 5-2 loss against Cleveland. He struck out seven. It was another strong outing from Rodriguez, who held Cleveland scoreless through four innings before allowing a pair of runs in the fifth. The rookie right-hander has held opponents to three earned runs or fewer in 11 consecutive starts, working to a 2.32 ERA in that span. Overall, Rodriguez is 6-4 with a 4.49 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 124:42 K:BB across 22 starts (116.1 innings). He'll likely make one more start in the regular season, currently scheduled for next week against the Nationals.

  • Orioles' Grayson Rodriguez: Throws gem for win No. 6

    Rodriguez (6-4) earned the win Saturday, allowing five hits over eight scoreless innings against the Rays. He struck out seven. Rodriguez blanked the Rays on Saturday, dishing out no walks for the first time all year while allowing just one batter to reach third base. The rookie has come on strong during the tail end of the regular season, tallying quality starts in six of his last seven appearances (43.1 innings) to earn a 2.08 ERA and a 41:10 K:BB over that stretch. He's set to make his next start on the road against the Guardians late next week.

  • Orioles' Grayson Rodriguez: Poor start Sunday

    Rodriguez (5-4) allowed four runs (two earned) on seven hits and two walks while striking out six over 4.1 innings to take the loss Sunday versus the Red Sox. Rodriguez had logged five straight quality starts going into Sunday. It's unclear if the rookie right-hander was thrown off by a rain delay before the game, but he didn't have his best stuff despite throwing 63 of 89 pitches for strikes. For the season, he's at a 4.88 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 110:39 K:BB through 103.1 innings over 20 starts. Rodriguez is projected to make his next start at home versus the Rays.

  • Orioles' Grayson Rodriguez: Picks up another quality start

    Rodriguez (5-3) earned the win over the Angels on Monday, allowing two runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out seven batters over six innings. Rodriguez wasn't as dominant as he was his last time out, when he allowed just one hit over six scoreless frames against the White Sox, but he did demonstrate an impressive arsenal with 17 whiffs and seven punchouts. The right-hander has racked up five consecutive quality starts, posting a 2.32 ERA, 1.06 WHIP and 28:8 K:BB over 31 innings during that stretch. Rodriguez struggled mightily early this season, but he's turned things around dramatically following a nearly two-month stint in the minors. Since returning to the Orioles' rotation July 17, he's posted a 2.85 ERA, 1.04 WHIP and 48:16 K:BB across 53.2 frames.

  • Orioles' Grayson Rodriguez: Allows three runs in no-decision

    Rodriguez did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing three runs on eight hits and two walks over six innings against the Blue Jays. He struck out five. Rodriguez logged his third consecutive quality start Tuesday, though he was ultimately stuck with a no-decision in the Orioles' 6-3 defeat. The 23-year-old Rodriguez has pitched to a 3.24 ERA in seven starts since he was recalled from Triple-A on July 17. Overall, he's now 3-3 with a 5.38 ERA, 1.43 WHIP and 91:34 K:BB across 17 starts (87 innings) this season. Rodriguez is currently lined up for a home matchup with the White Sox in his next outing.

  • Orioles' Grayson Rodriguez: Continues solid stretch Monday

    Rodriguez improved to 3-3 in Monday's 4-1 win over the Padres, allowing one run on three hits and one walk while striking out six batters over seven innings. Rodriguez worked five scoreless frames before Garrett Cooper tagged him for a solo shot in the sixth. That was the only run the rookie right-hander gave up, though, and he finished with a win to even his record at 3-3. Though the victory was his first since May 9, Rodriguez has been pitching well of late. Over his past five starts, he's posted a 2.35 ERA, 0.85 WHP and 26:9 K:BB over 30.2 innings.

  • Orioles' Grayson Rodriguez: Stuck with tough loss against Jays

    Rodriguez (2-3) took the loss Wednesday, giving up three runs on two hits and two walks over 5.2 innings as the Orioles fell 4-1 to the Blue Jays. He struck out six. The 23-year-old right-hander was stingy through five innings and nearly delivered his second straight quality start, but after walking two batters with two outs in the sixth, he got the hook and had to watch as Shintaro Fujinami loaded the bases on another free pass before plunking consecutive Toronto batters, with both runs going on Rodriguez's ledger. Since returning to the big-league rotation after the All-Star break, Rodriguez has posted a 3.57 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 20:8 K:BB through 22.2 innings. He'll look for a better result in his next start, likely to come at home early next week against the Astros.

  • Orioles' Grayson Rodriguez: Possible waiver wire pickups

    The Orioles called Rodriguez back up to the majors and then basically threw him to the wolves, having him face the Dodgers and Rays in his first week back. The first outing could have gone better, but he basically held the Rays in check over 5 2/3 innings Saturday. He showed improved velocity in both starts and did a better job of mixing in his breaking balls in this one, which helped account for 17 whiffs on 93 pitches. Widely considered to be the best pitching prospect in baseball the past two years, he's looking the part again after a rough first couple months in the majors. His next start is against a Yankees lineup that's suffered greatly without Aaron Judge.

  • Orioles' Grayson Rodriguez: Solid in no-decision

    Rodriguez did not factor into the decision Saturday, allowing two runs on three hits and two walks over 5.2 innings against Tampa Bay. He struck out six. After giving up four runs in his first start since being recalled by the Orioles, Rodriguez shut down the Rays, allowing three hits while falling just one out short of his first quality start of 2023. Prior to being sent down to the minors, Rodriguez had surrendered 18 runs over four starts (17.2 innings). However, with Cole Irvin shifting to the bullpen, it's likely Rodriguez will stick around in Baltimore's rotation.

  • Orioles' Grayson Rodriguez: Sent down Saturday

    Rodriguez was optioned to Triple-A Norfolk on Saturday. Rodriguez will head down to Norfolk after he's struggled on the mound recently, posting an inflated 11.14 ERA and 2.10 WHIP with 22 strikeouts over 21 innings in five starts in May. The 23-year-old has struggled with the long ball this season, surrendering 13 homers over his 10 outings. Rodriguez will now have an opportunity to get back on track with Norfolk before he inevitably gets another shot in the big leagues down the line. Keegan Akin was called up to replace Rodriguez on the major-league roster.

  • Orioles' Grayson Rodriguez: Hammered by Rangers

    Rodriguez (2-2) allowed nine runs (eight earned) on six hits and three walks over 3.1 frames Friday, striking out six and taking a loss against Texas. Rodriguez coughed up three home runs Friday, including a Corey Seager grand slam in the fourth inning that bounced him from the contest. Over his last five starts, Rodriguez has allowed a whopping 27 runs and 11 home runs, raising his season ERA from 4.07 to 7.35 through 45.1 innings. It's hard to find a silver lining in Friday's start, but the rookie's 13 swinging strikes marked the first time he recorded double-digit whiffs since April 29. Rodriguez will look to snap out of the funk in his next start, which lines up to be a home matchup against the Guardians.
