Boston Red Sox left-hander Eduardo Rodriguez said Thursday that he will be fully recovered from a heart issue tied to his COVID-19 battle when the 2021 season commences.
The 27-year-old Rodriguez missed the 2020 season due to his health issues, which included being diagnosed with myocarditis (heart inflammation) in July.
“I feel great,” Rodriguez told MLB Network Radio on SiriusXM. “My workouts are going to start next week, like lifting weights and all that. I’ve been doing bike, throwing a little bit, so I would say I will be 100 percent ready for next season.”
The summer was rough for Rodriguez as the team announced he tested positive for COVID-19 on July 7 and placed him on the injured list eight days later.
