E-Rod exits with trainer in first inning

Detroit Tigers

ST. PETERSBURG — Tigers starter Eduardo Rodriguez left Wednesday afternoon’s game against the Rays with a trainer after 23 pitches and one out.

Rodriguez allowed three consecutive singles to begin his outing before walking in a run and surrendering a two-run single to Francisco Mejía. After getting Isaac Paredes to fly out, Rodriguez walked Vidal Bruján and immediately looked to the dugout.

Out came manager AJ Hinch and a trainer, and Rodriguez was removed from the game.

An injury would be a blow to the Tigers. Rodriguez entered Wednesday’s game coming off his two best starts of the year and his first win with the club, against Baltimore on Friday.
