The Red Sox will call-up Eduardo Rodriguez, one of their top pitching prospects, for the start tomorrow afternoon against the Rangers.

Rated by as the team's fourth overall prospect and their top pitching prospect, the 22-year-old lefty acquired from Baltimore in last year's Andrew Miller trade will be getting his first opportunity to showcase his talents for John Farrell.  With the team's starting pitching struggling - especially Joe Kelly - Rodriguez may be able to parlay this spot start into a permanent job.
