BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2015 Luigi Rodriguez is a switch-hitting center fielder who took a step back in High-A, denting his chances of becoming the first Luigi in major-league history.
2014 No one with the first name “Luigi” has ever reached the majors (there have been nine Marios), but this speedy switch-hitter appears poised to change that if he can shake off the injuries that plagued him in 2013. A very good defensive center fielder, Rodriguez held his own in a brief tour of the Carolina League, and his approach in the box is coming along. That’s important because his offensive value is likely to be maximized at the top of a lineup, where his patience and wheels can surmount fringy power. Rodriguez needs to stay on the field, improve his base-stealing instincts and continue to refine his strike zone judgment to emerge as a leadoff-hitting center fielder down the road.
2013 Another undeveloped youngster for the Indians, Luigi Rodriguez doesn’t have nearly the upside of Lindor or Paulino. He wasn’t a complete flop in his full-season assignment, but his 26 percent strikeout rate was concerning, especially from a defense-first center fielder who doesn’t do enough with the bat to carry so much swing-and-miss. The Indians will continue to challenge him in hopes of tapping some potential and molding into him into a top-of-the-order center fielder instead of one more suited for batting eighth or ninth.
2012 Having lost his petition to MLB to allow the on-field use of Yoshii, Luigi Rodriguez proved more than capable of relying on his own plus-plus speed in 2011. A converted second baseman, he has taken to the outfield well and shows a good approach at the plate with a bit of pop.
