Ardelin Rodriguez was not selected in the Rule 5 Draft
Last year Rodriguez (age 21), hit a combined .263 with 24HRs and a .321 OBP to go along with another 26 doubles. When he hits the ball jumps off the bat. He has prodigious power.
-As the year went on Rodriguez got better and better. His batting average and walk percentage both rose.
-He split the season between A and A+ and will most likely begin 2013 in A+ or AA and will spend most of the year in AA
-He is not known for his glove. Not great at 3rd but decent at 1st. He could possibly move to LF.
I am relieved. I would place Rodriguez as our #6 prospect
Caculated risk pays off for Sandy he figured no one would claim him as they would be hard pressed to keep him on a major league roster all year.
Do you know if we lost anyone?
