Rodriguez was unwillingly ripped away from Toronto as a vital return in the 2020 Trade Deadline transaction that brought Taijuan Walker to the Blue Jays.
Shortly after arriving, the Dominican Republic native earned a glowing scouting report from Noelvi Marte, another top Mariners prospect who compared Rodriguez to Barry Bonds. Now, the 21-year-old doesn’t have 700-homer potential, but he makes consistent contact and is fast to the ball with a good feel for the strike zone.
With the team directing him to be leaner, the left-handed-hitting outfielder had a solid season in High-A Everett in 2021, hitting .295/.383/.484 (.867 OPS) with 10 homers in 93 games before being promoted to Double-A Arkansas for the final two weeks of the season.
Rodriguez, known for his strong approach at the bat, now has deceptive power for his 5-foot-11 body, thanks to improved and more focused training.
Rodriguez, a toe-tap hitter, is praised for his ability to maximize his effect on baseball as well as his strong pitch-recognition abilities.
Defensively, he has average speed and range, as well as an above-average arm, which will likely land him in a corner slot in the long run.
