Drafted in the 19th round (557th overall) by the Houston AstrosĀ in 2013
Rodriguez was an 11th-round pick by the Dodgers out of Elk Grove (Calif.) High in 2010, but did not sign and headed to Corvallis. Three players from that 2010 Elk Grove team should get drafted this year, as first baseman Rowdy Tellez and catcher Dom Nunez were freshman on the team. Rodriguez has a short, thick build at 5-foot-9 and 200 pounds and while he might not have any tools that wow scouts, most like his overall package. He has a compact, quick swing with gap power but enough strength to drive mistakes out of the yard. He's a solid catcher with a strong arm, and his intangibles help his tools play up. He's a natural leader and shows good toughness and a strong work ethic. Rodriguez is also athletic and versatile enough to play second base.
