The veteran scattered nine singles on the day, but was able to avoid any major damage despite giving up a run on an error with men on in the second inning. Rodriguez has now given up three runs or fewer in all but two of his starts this season and continues to put up solid, yet unspectacular numbers for the Rangers.

Rodriguez allowed five runs on eight hits, walking one and striking out two over 4.2 innings of an 8-3 loss to Cleveland on Friday night.

He gave up two runs in the top of the first inning, but his mates scored three in the bottom of the frame to give him a lead. The Indians then scored in the fourth and fifth innings to chase him. It was a struggle throughout as Rodriguez (1-2, 3.86 ERA) needed 101 pitches (64 for strikes) and didn't make it out of the fifth. He has been extremely inconsistent so far this season and would have to be considered a risky play right now.

Rodriguez went eight full innings Tuesday against the Astros, only giving up one earned run on three hits while fanning eight to earn the win.

Rodriguez lasted only 4.1 innings, allowing five hits, five walks and four runs with three strikeouts Wednesday against the Mariners.

With the game tied at two and the bases loaded with one out in the the top of the fifth, Rodriguez gave up a grounder to Logan Morrison that should have ended the inning with a double-play. However, first baseman Kyle Blanks missed the ball, and the play resulted in a two-run double. Rodriguez was then lifted for Stolmy Pimentel, who pitched three scoreless innings. The veteran left-hander will take the mound again Tuesday at Houston.

Rodriguez will be called up to start Friday against the Angels, Stefan Stevenson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.

Rodriguez appeared in line open the year in the Braves' rotation after impressing in spring training, but Atlanta ultimately decided Rodriguez and Eric Stults were too similar. After the Braves cut bait, Rodriguez inked a minor league deal with the Rangers and has impressed in his first two starts with Triple-A Round Rock, allowing two runs on four hits with 10 strikeouts in seven innings. Ross Detwiler has some mechanical issues to work out but will not go to the bullpen.

Rodriguez signed a minor league contract with the Rangers on Monday.

The Rangers have serious starting rotation depth issues, so this does not come as a surprise following Rodriguez being released by the Braves. He will start the year at Triple-A Round Rock, but could soon find his way into the big league rotation if he can prove to be somewhat competent.

The Braves released Rodriguez on Friday, MLB.com's Mark Bowman reports.

Rodriguez appeared likely to open the season in the Braves' rotation as recently as Thursday, but Atlanta's trade for Trevor Cahill essentially cost Rodriguez a spot on the roster. Rodriguez tossed the ball well this spring, posting a 3.13 ERA and 23:8 K:BB ratio in 23 innings over six starts, so he should find work with another team, and could possibly still even open the season with a starting rotation spot, depending where he lands of course.
