8.5.18
Rodriguez has made a serious push as one of the top hitters in the Texas 2020 class. He has a great mix of power, barrel awareness, and ability to use the whole field that is not easy to find. The right-handed hitter put on a show in batting practice, crushing balls over the left field wall and posting triple digit exit velocities. In multiple at bats over the week, Rodriguez showed his ability to handle the bat, taking aggressive hacks early in the count, and still being able to get hits on offspeed pitches with two strikes. Moves easy at first base with the smooth footwork, rhythm and the glove actions that project well to the next level. At 5-foot-11, 245-pounds, Rodriguez has a strong, sturdy frame and enough athleticism to post a 7.33 60-yard dash.

7.17.18

A strong, sturdy 5-foot-11, 225-pound frame, there are few 2020 sluggers with Rodriguez’s tools. The right-handed hitter starts in an athletic, slightly-open stance with some wiggle in his hands. In conjunction with a small leg lift and a low-to-high load, Rodriguez showed loose wrists, a compact, lifting swing with uncommon force among rising juniors (105 mph exit velocity), hitting multiple batting practice balls off of and over the left field wall. His bat lags well through the zone, tremendous feel for his barrel, with a great understanding for the rhythm in his swing, and incredibly strong at the point of attack. Behind the plate, he showed a short, quick arm stroke with decent carry (76 mph) and accuracy around the bag. He threw 76 mph from the crouch, posting pop times of 2.04-2.15. Playing at first base, he flashed soft hands, good footwork, and solid fundamentals. For college coaches looking for a thumper in the middle of their lineup, there are few 2020 players with Rodriguez’s power potential.
