Drafted in the 9th round (290th overall) by the New York Mets in 2012 (signed for $10,000)
Rodriguez made good use of the hitter-friendly environment at Eastern Kentucky and in the Ohio Valley Conference as a whole, batting .377/.472/.690 as a senior this spring. He helped the Colonels to a share of their first OVC regular-season title in 12 years. The 5-foot-10, 180-pounder makes consistent contact from the right side of the plate, but he won't have nearly as much pop in pro ball. He has a strong if sometimes erratic arm, though he'll fit better at second base than shortstop at the next level.
