Rangers RHP Nathan Eovaldi (groin) heads to 15-day IL

Nathan Eovaldi

The Texas Rangers placed right-hander Nathan Eovaldi on the 15-day injured list Friday due to a right groin strain.

Fellow right-hander Yerry Rodriguez was recalled from Triple-A Round Rock to take the roster spot.

Eovaldi, 34, scattered two hits and struck out eight batters over 5 1/3 innings in a 6-0 win over the Washington Nationals before exiting with an ailing groin. He picked up the win to improve to 2-2 with a 2.61 ERA in seven starts this season.

A two-time All-Star and two-time World Series champion, Eovaldi owns an 81-75 record with a 4.06 ERA in 272 career games (253 starts). He has pitched for the Los Angeles Dodgers (2011-12), Miami Marlins (2012-14), New York Yankees (2015-16), Tampa Bay Rays (2018), Boston Red Sox (2018-22) and Rangers.

Rodriguez, 26, has a 10.50 ERA without a decision in six relief appearances this season with Texas. He owns a 1-0 mark with a 5.14 ERA in five relief appearances with Round Rock in 2024.
