Scouting Report

Scouting grades: Hit: 40 | Power: 30 | Run: 50 | Arm: 60 | Field: 60 | Overall: 45

When the Reds signed Rodriguez, a native of Cuba, with a $7 million bonus in 2016, they knew they had a player who was glove-first and didn't have much of a hitting resume. That has remained the case after two-plus years of Minor League baseball. It also puts the organization in a bit of a quandary. Can Alf-Rod's glove alone carry him to the big leagues?

Offensively, Rodriguez hasn't shown much sign of progressing. That could partially be because of a hamate bone issue in 2018 that required two trips to the disabled list. But he also played in the instructional league and Arizona Fall League after the season and still didn't hit well. Plate discipline remains a stumbling block as he often swings and misses pitches out of the strike zones. A light hitter like Rodriguez needs to work counts and draw walks to get on base.

The contrast couldn't be wider on the defensive side. His hands could be a 70 on the 20-to-80 scouting scale and he has good range and a plus arm to go with them, making it possible to make all the routine plays and many spectacular ones as well. Although his glove could play in the big leagues, the reality is that Rodriguez is a projectable utility player at best if he doesn't figure out how to hit.
