Rodriguez (shoulder) has allowed two runs on three hits in three innings pitched since returning from the disabled list with Triple-A Iowa.

EDGE Analysis

Rodriguez has been out all year due to shoulder surgery he underwent back in September, but he seems to be back at 100 percent after a shaky first outing. The right-hander has a good amount of major-league experience under his belt, although he seems to be entrenched in an organizational depth role for the time being.

Rodriguez (shoulder) was reassigned to minor league camp Tuesday, Gordon Wittenmyer of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

EDGE Analysis

Manager Joe Maddon's reasoning behind the move was simply to get him more work, and given that Rodriguez is still working through a modified throwing program following surgery on his lat in September, this isn't too surprising. It's unclear how close the right-hander is to returning to game action, but that should become clearer as spring training progresses.

Rodriguez agreed to a minor league deal with the Cubs, Matt Eddy of Baseball America reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 32-year-old spent the last three seasons with the A's, most recently compiling a 4.20 ERA across 40.2 innings in 2016 before undergoing shoulder surgery in September. He should be healthy and in position to compete for a bullpen spot come spring training.

Rodriguez (shoulder) was outrighted to Triple-A Nashville on Thursday.

EDGE Analysis

The Athletics made a slew of roster moves to clear space on the 40-man roster, and given the fact that Rodriguez isn't expected to pick up a baseball for another few months, they decided to leave him off the 40-man roster. The 32-year-old struggled in the big leagues this season, posting a 4.20 ERA out of the Oakland bullpen, so he'll likely act as organizational pitching depth going forward.

Rodriguez underwent surgery Friday to repair a lat injury, Joe Stiglich of CSN California reports.

EDGE Analysis

Apparently, everything was successful and doctors were able to repair the torn muscle. Rodriguez now faces an extensive rehab process; with the right-hander not expected to pick up a baseball for fourth months, he may be limited at the start of spring training. Rodriguez posted a 4.20 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and five holds in 34 appearances with the A's this season ahead of his first winter of arbitration eligibility.

Rodriguez was placed on the 60-day DL Saturday.

EDGE Analysis

Rodriguez's transfer to the 60-day DL opens up a spot on the 40-man roster for Bruce Maxwell who was called up on Saturday. Rodriguez was getting shelled before landing on the DL with a rotator cuff strain, allowing 12 earned runs over his last eight appearances (15.43 ERA) dating back to June 16. Although he's yet to resume baseball activities, he's still projected to return sometime in August.

Rodriguez (shoulder) was diagnosed with a rotator cuff strain Wednesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rodriguez was put on the 15-day DL on Monday and surgery likely won't be necessary. He will be shut down for a while and reevaluated in the future.

Rodriguez (shoulder) will undergo an MRI on Tuesday, Susan Slusser of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.

EDGE Analysis

Rodriguez threw just one pitch in Sunday's game against the Pirates before feeling pain in his shoulder, resulting in the A's quickly pulling him from the contest. The team wasted no time in transferring him to the disabled list earlier in the day Monday, but the MRI should determine the full extent of his injury. For now, Rodriguez has been diagnosed with a right shoulder strain.

Rodriguez (shoulder) was placed on the 15-day DL on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

Rodriguez suffered a shoulder strain during his appearance Sunday against the Pirates, and although the results of his MRI haven't been made available, the Athletics determined the reliever was dealing with more than a day-to-day situation. In order to compensate for Rodriguez's absence, the Athletics added Andrew Triggs and Patrick Schuster to help bolster the bullpen depth.

Rodriguez is scheduled to undergo an MRI on his shoulder Sunday, Joe Stiglich of CSN California reports.

EDGE Analysis

The reliever has already been diagnosed with a shoulder strain, and the MRI figures to reveal the extent of the damage. He left Sunday's relief appearance after recording just one out. Stiglich acknowledged the possibility of a DL stint for Rodriguez depending on the results of the MRI, so the A's could be making a roster move in the near future if Rodriguez winds up having to miss extended time.
