    View Draft Report
    The Florida Athletic Coaches Association all-star games in Sebring two weeks before the draft is always a must-attend event for scouts. No one helped himself more at the event than Rodriguez, an athletic pitcher who showed that he could carry his 93-95 mph fastball deep into games. He also has a hard slider that is short and hard enough that it gets described as a cutter. Whatever you call it, it flashes plus. Rodriguez's delivery does worry some scouts--it's somewhat violent with a quick stab and a head whack, but he repeats it and throws strikes. Rodriguez has signed with Jacksonville.
