Nelson Figueroa has been bumped from the Astros' rotation in favor of rookie Aneury Rodriguez.
Figueroa drew a vote of confidence from Houston manager Brad Mills earlier this week, but the right decision has finally been made. The 36-year-old posted a 8.28 ERA and 2.00 WHIP over five starts. Rodriguez will make his first major league start on Tuesday against the Reds. Figueroa will move to the bullpen.
