Tool Future Grade Report
Hit 60 High hands, small leg kick with stride, easy compact swing, quick bat, plus barrel control, line-to-line hitter, bat stays through the zone a long time, slight uppercut, good extension, advanced approach, controls the zone.
Power 60 Raw power at present, will come with age and maturity. 25+ home run ability yearly, future power to all fields.
Baserunning/Speed 50 Not a burner but can steal bases, heady baserunner, long strides, no mechanical issues.
Glove 55 Moves well, takes solid routes, goes back to wall well, can make highlight-reel catches. Has ability to play a slightly above-average center field.
Arm 60 Cannon for an arm, accurate, high velocity, carry. Plays plus in right field, knows situations.

Rodriguez has one of the more high-end packages in all of the minors. When you watch Rodriguez play his tools are easy to spot. What also stands out are his intangibles–grit, determination, confidence, and love for the game. His floor is very high with his ability to control the zone, find the barrel and play right field at an above-average level. But Rodriguez sure looks like he is on the path of perennial All-Star.
