    Relegated to center field by Robert Valido at Coral Park High, Rodriguez transferred to Braddock last winter so he'd get the opportunity to play shortstop. He has the arm, hands and actions for the position, though some scouts wonder if he's more of a second baseman on the pro level. Others think he'd make a fine catcher. His line-drive swing should make him an above-average offensive performer at any of the three positions. Rodriguez' instincts are outstanding, no surprise considering that his father Johnny manages in the Marlins system and his brother Robert plays in the Expos organization. He'll have to compete with Valido again if both follow through on their commitments to Florida International, though both are expected to sign as third- or fourth-round selections.
