Boston Red Sox P Eduardo Rodriguez out for season due to COVID-related heart issue

According to the Boston Red Sox, LHP Eduardo Rodriguez has been ruled out of the 2020 season due to a heart issue he developed following a battle with COVID-19.

From WCVB.com:

 

Bloom made the announcement about the team’s decision to shut Rodriguez down during a Zoom call with media members ahead of Saturday’s game against the New York Yankees.

“While we remain very optimistic that he’s going to make a full recovery — we’re confident of that (because) the severity of this is mild (and) his heart is functioning normally — (but) due to the fact that it is persistent and the amount of care we need to take with this, and the time left in the season, he’s not going to be able to come back and pitch this year,” Bloom said.

According to Johns Hopkins Medicine, myocarditis is an inflammation of the heart muscle that is usually due to a viral infection. The inflammation can lead to arrhythmias, cardiomyopathy or heart failure.

Rodriguez’s doctors told him that 10-20% of people who have had COVID-19 also have been diagnosed with myocarditis.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to Rodriguez and we hope he makes a full recovery.
