Scouting Report
Rodriguez showed some versatility at the Tournament of Stars, playing first base and pitcher in games, but also participating in catcher workouts. He has a thick frame with a strong lower half at 6-foot-1, 180 pounds. On the mound, he sat 89-91, dipping to about 86-89 out of the stretch. His curveball has good 11-to-5 shape and sharpness, sitting 74-77. At the plate, he has a medium leg kick and smooth swing that produces power. His arm strength translates to the field. As a catcher, he is understandably raw, with a long exchange and inverted elbow, but he was still around 2.0 seconds on his throws.

Rodriguez best projects on the mound at the next-level. This spring we saw his fastball reach as high as 97 mph, sitting 91-94 mph with late jump. His slider/curve sat 75-78 with 10/4 shape, chance to be a strikeout pitch. His size could keep some teams leery because of durability. We think he's definitely sign-able and should likely hear his name called today or tomorrow during the draft.
