2023 Fantasy Outlook
Rodriguez had a rough MLB debut in 2022, posting a 10.62 ERA and 1.92 WHIP across 29.2 innings. He made seven total appearances, with those five of those being starts. Rodriguez never really got comfortable, and his lowlight was allowing 10 earned runs in a start against the Yankees on June 30. The 24-year-old's results with Triple-A Toledo weren't much better, as he registered a 4.98 ERA and 1.52 WHIP across 99.1 innings. The Tigers simply dealt with a lot of pitching injuries in 2022, with the likes of Eduardo Rodriguez, Matt Manning, Casey Mize and Tarik Skubal all missing time, which opened up the opportunity to Elvin Rodriguez despite not really dazzling in the minors. He was outrighted to Triple-A Toledo in November, so he's now off the 40-man roster and looks like organizational depth at best heading into 2023. Based on his 2022 results, Rodriguez likely shouldn't be on the fantasy radar even if he returns to the majors at some point. Read Past Outlooks
