Eduardo Rodriguez and Detroit Tigers connect after 5 awkward weeks of silence

After roughly five weeks of silence, left-handed starting pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez connected with the Detroit Tigers.

The Tigers placed Rodriguez, who signed a five-year, $77 million contract in November, on the restricted list June 13, as the pitcher tended to a marital issue.

Approximately 10 days ago, Rodriguez and Tigers manager A.J. Hinch talked on the phone with each other, general manager Al Avila said Saturday.
