Latest Update Sean Rodriguez hits 10th home run Sat Jul, 19, 10:50 PM
Has an above-average power bat for an infielder with a knack for driving in runs. Can play several positions capably, especially in the infield.
Flaws: : Strikes out too much and could stand to be more patient at the plate. While good with the glove, he's not particularly polished at any one position.
Rodriguez, manager Joe Maddon's favorite super-sub, was just 2-for-16 over his previous six games and struggling to keep his batting average over .230. Even when he's getting regular playing time he's a tough guy to use as that regular playing time still sees him getting a game or two off each week anyway. He's always had some decent power potential, but there's just not enough consistency.Analyst: Howard Bender
S-Rod has been one of the primary beneficiaries of Yunel Escobar's shoulder injury and he's trying to take as much advantage of the added playing time as possible. He's hit safely in each of his last three games and is finally showing some traces off the power we know he has lurking beneath. He should continue to share the work at second base with Logan Forsythe while Escobar remains out and could be a decent platoon option if you;re struggling for production from the keystone.Analyst: Howard Bender
Despite his nice effort on Tuesday, Rodriguez remains in a platoon in the Rays outfield, which limits any potential fantasy value moving forward. He now owns a .250 average with six homers and 20 RBI through 76 at-bats, so there is potential for growth if given more opportunity in the future. Analyst: Matthew Beck
Rodriguez followed up Jonny Gomes' pinch hit homer in the top half of the inning with one of his own, raising his total to six home runs on the season. However, he will need to receive more regular at-bats before becoming a fantasy asset. Analyst: Matthew Beck
