The 22-year-old Wallace, a third-round pick of the Rockies in 2019, debuted in Low-A ball last season and pitched to a stingy 1.29 ERA/2.94 FIP with 12.43 K/9 and 3.86 BB/9 in 21 innings. Since then, Baseball America (No. 19), MLB.com (No. 20) and FanGraphs (No. 21) have placed Wallace among Colorado’s top 25 prospects.

Boston Red Sox pitcher Eduardo Rodriguez was cleared by the team for physical activity after battling a heart condition caused by COVID-19 that kept him out for all of 2020.

Red Sox manager Ron Roenicke told reporters Friday the left-handed starting pitcher will be able to do light physical activity while building up to a return in 2021. He was diagnosed in July with a heart condition called myocarditis, which is considered inflammation of the heart, after a bout with the coronavirus.

Keuchel was placed on the IL due to back spasms, and since his placement was retroactive to September 7, he will return having missed only a couple of days past the 10-day minimum.

After spending the last several months recovering from the condition, the 27-year-old Rodriguez was only recently cleared by doctors to begin walking again this past week.

Roenicke said Rodriguez gave Red Sox trainers, and chief baseball officer Chaim Bloom his full health update Thursday, describing it as "really good news."

"I talked to (Rodriguez) after the call and he was pretty excited," Roenicke said. "All the reports that came back, they looked at it. He has been cleared to start just walking. In a couple weeks, that’ll elevate to maybe some treadmill walking and exercising. They’re hoping that his offseason will be normal and he’ll be able to build himself up for next year. We’re all excited about it, and like I said, Eddy was thrilled.

a group of baseball players standing on top of a field: For you non-sports fans at home, a no-hitter is a game in which a team was unable to record a single hit during a 9-inning game.
