Rodriguez spent four years in the starting rotation at high-profile Orange (Calif.) Lutheran and led the Lancers to three consecutive National High School Invitational titles. He entered his senior year with high draft hopes, but his stuff went backward in limited time before the season shut down due to the coronavirus pandemic. At his best, Rodriguez flashes a 90-93 mph fastball out of his wiry, projectable 6-foot-5 frame. This spring, he spent more time pitching in the 87-91 mph range, and scouts noted he lost some of his athleticism in his delivery. Rodriguez’s secondaries are still developing and he’s not as aggressive on the mound as scouts would like. Rodriguez’s projectable frame and natural arm strength still give him considerable upside. He is committed to Cal State Fullerton.
