Eduardo Rodriguez's arbitration hearing set for Wednesday


With Andrew Benintendi agreeing to a two-year deal with Boston, there is only one Red Sox player heading to arbitration. Eduardo Rodriguez.

The left-handed pitcher is set to depart from Florida on Tuesday for his hearing. The settlement will take place in Arizona on Wednesday.

Rodriguez is looking to make $8.975 million. The Red Sox filed in at $8.3 million.

Despite the slight difference — relative to the numbers that have been presented — it doesn’t sound like Rodriguez expects the matter to be resolved early.

“The hearing is Wednesday and (we’ll) see what happens after that,” he said when leaving the Red Sox facility in Fort Myers on Monday.
