Signed from Panama in 2015, Rodriguez has grown to over 6’0,” and he was among the most polished hitters across my views of extended spring training. Hitting from the lefthand side, Rodriguez has feel to hit and the ability to work deep counts and find himself in hitter’s counts often. His raw power projects as average, and with his hitting ability, Rodriguez should translate well into games. While he was listed as an OF in extended, and I saw him once in LF, The Cubs also tested him at first base twice. He is most likely to settle on the the latter position: his athleticism and below average foot speed limits his ability to hold down a corner-outfield spot, but the hit tool gives him a shot.
