WTM’S PIRATE PLAYER PROFILES

Rodriguez is a RHP with good size.  The Pirates have used him almost exclusively as a starter, which may indicate they think he has good potential.

2011
DSL:  0-1-0, 4.43 ERA, 1.12 WHIP, 22.1 IP, 3.2 BB/9, 8.9 K/9

Despite the ERA, Rodriguez pitched well in brief action in his first season.  He pitched in seven games, four of them starts.

2012
DSL:  1-5-0, 5.10 ERA, 1.61 WHIP, 42.1 IP, 2.8 BB/9, 7.0 K/9

Rodriguez struggled in his second season.  He had good walk and K rates, but in ten starts opponents hit .314 against him.

2013
DSL:  1-5-0, 2.86 ERA, 1.24 WHIP, 63.0 IP, 2.9 BB/9, 5.1 K/9

Apart from a lower K rate, Rodriguez pitched much better in 14 starts.

The Pirates brought Rodriguez to camp in 2014.  He’ll be 21, so they could send him to Bristol rather than the GCL.
