Boston Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez lost the entire 2020 season to COVID-19 after developing complications from the disease that inflamed his heart muscles. But he says he is 100% now that he’s reported to spring training. Manager Alex Cora says he’s counting on the 27-year-old lefty to once again carry a big load on the pitching staff. Rodriguez threw his first bullpen session on Wednesday and came out of it with no problems.
