Eduardo Rodriguez reportedly blocks trade to Dodgers, remains with Tigers

Ace left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez will remain with the Detroit Tigers after a trade was completed before Tuesday’s 6 p.m. ET deadline.

According to ESPN’s Jeff Passan, the Tigers and Dodgers had a trade agreement in place for the veteran starter, but Rodriguez used his 10-team no-trade clause to block the trade.

Dodgers writer Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reported that Rodriguez — who spent most of his career with the Boston Red Sox — preferred to stay closer to his family on the east coast.

Rodriguez was considered one of the best starting pitchers available ahead of the trade deadline, with a career-best 2.95 ERA and 91 strikeouts in 15 starts.

Rodriguez has three years and $49 million left on his contract, but is expected to opt out of that deal this winter and become a free agent.
