Really showed off his defensive ability on the day. Arm strength across from the left side is average, but he really makes up for it with a quick exchange and throw from any arm slot with comfort. Looks really good coming forward on balls and making plays on the run. Easy level path swing at the plate. Contact approach with line drive tendency, but has some doubles power in the swing with the speed to stretch an extra bag when needed. Had a triple to right center field on the day.

Preseason All-State I

Rodriguez is 5-9 with a lanky athletic frame that has plenty of projection left to it. He hits from the left side from a slightly open athletic stance, leg kick stride on line, loads back to a wrap. Hips rotate completely and he maintains some lower half balance. Hands stay inside, quick to the ball, slightly uphill swing with extension through the ball and some power in the gaps, exit velocity was 88. In the infield, rounds ball and fields with a good wide base and soft hands, works through ball to a quick clean exchange, throws from a low three-quarters arm slot, position velocity was 74. Ran a 4.40 home to first.

Athletic frame with free and loose movements on both sides of the ball. Defensively has soft hands and shows comfort throwing from all arm slots and making plays on the run. Hits from the left side with an upright open stance. Small leg lift and strides forward, hands are short to contact, bat path is level, and does a nice job staying inside the ball at contact. Uses the whole field and is a solid instinctive runner. Did not have a hit on the day, but managed to find the barrel consistently. Think he will make a nice jump as he continues to grow into his frame and add strength.
