Rodriguez is one of the youngest players in the class, and he won't turn 18 until November. He has excellent raw tools and a projectable 6-foot-3, broad-shouldered frame with a tapered waist and room to to add muscle. He shows some of the best pure arm strength in the class; his arm grades as a present 60 on the 20-to-80 scouting scale. He shows flashes offensively but has a long swing with a deep load, and scouts believe it will take him a while to adjust to professional pitching. He's a high-risk, high-reward pick and could entice a team on day two or day three with his exciting raw tools.
