Phillies Sign Venezuelan Catcher Lenin Rodriguez

Lenin Rodriguez, a 16-year-old Venezuelan catcher, has signed with the Phillies for $300,000. Rodriguez is an offensive-oriented player who’s shown the ability to hit in games from the right side with gap power. At 5-foot-9, 190 pounds, Rodriguez has a heavy build with blocking and receiving skills that will need work to stay behind the plate, though he does have a good arm. Rodriguez trained with his father.
