A right-handed hitting middle infielder, can play on either side of the bag, projects out more from the right-side. Defensively, the hands and feet work well together, clean active prep steps, gets around the baseball with momentum going towards target. The glove is soft, fielding out front and low to ground, clean starts and turns around the bag. The arm is super clan and fluid, short arm action on the back, clocked 77 mph, plenty of carry, comes out of the hand nice. Offensively, slightly open, hands are loose and relaxed, swing is inside the baseball, spraying line drives to all parts of the field. The exit velocity was clocked at 82 mph, solid contact guy, look for him to make another jump this year.

5-foot-3, 130 pounds, average athletic build and proportions. Ran a 8.28 sixty yard dash. A right-handed hitter, Rodrigues showed polish in the box with a consistent bat path and feel for the barrell. All fields, mature, line drive oriented approach. Fluid hands, advanced bat to ball skills, controlled leg kick from a slightly open stance. Quiet hands work from the shoulders with an easy one hand finish. Off the tee, his exit velocity was measured at 72 MPH. Working out as a shortstop, Rodrigues showed off a quick, clean arm that throws from a ¾ slot. Throws across the diamond were clocked up to 70 MPH. Crisp defensive movements and soft hands on the forehand and backhand. The defensive tools are there for Rodrigues to stick up the middle long-term. Overall, a high follow of the 2022 class, profiling as someone with an advanced hit tool and defensive aptitude.
