    Rodriguez has a stocky 5-foot-10, 210-pound frame. His best tool is his bat. He has a short, compact swing with a knack for centering the ball and has performed well in big tournaments. Rodriguez has a flat swing plane and is a gap-to-gap, line-drive hitter. Like most catchers, he is a 20 runner on the 20-80 scouting scale. Rodriguez shows average arm strength, but is just an adequate defender and will need to work on his agility and blocking. Scouts believe he'll be able to handle the grind of catching in pro ball because he's a hard worker with good makeup. He has good baseball instincts, works well with his pitchers and is bilingual. Rodriguez is signed with Seminole State (Fla.) JC, but is expected to turn pro.
