BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2014 Due to publishing agreements, the 2014 player comments and team essays are only available in the Baseball Prospectus 2014 book (available in hardcopy, e-book, and Kindle).
2013 Is it all about the hands? Rodriguez's might be the quickest in baseball: His 118.4 mph homer was the fastest clocked in 2011. But does an over-reliance on the hands and a consequently whippy swing explain his vulnerability against righties? Last August, after two years of decline, he was demoted to Triple-A; two games later, he broke one of those hands when he punched a locker following a petty altercation with Dane De La Rosa (apparently over clubhouse music). So maybe it's about the head, not the hands. Rodriguez spoke last year of his "mindset in the box" (although he did tweak his stance). If he masters his mind—approach and recognition at the plate and elsewhere—he could reward PECOTA's 2013 optimism and far outperform his $1 million salary. Rodriguez's ceiling is significantly higher than he's reached; that’s why he's been the Rays' most tantalizing but frustrating player over the last two seasons.
2012 Rodriguez became the new Ben Zobrist while playing five positions in 2011 including all four spots on the infield. Despite showing improved plate discipline, resulting in increased walk and contact rates, Rodriguez's numbers declined in 2011 thanks to his continued inability to handle right-handed pitching. In 242 plate appearances in 2010, he hit .229 with a 642 OPS but those numbers fell to .192 and 567 in 269 plate appearances last season. He has a very good chance to nab primary shortstop responsibilities in 2012 given Brignac's extreme struggles, but if his numbers against righties do not improve, it will be tough to swallow seeing him get more than 450 plate appearances.
2011 Rodriguez provided the most immediate return in the Scott Kazmir trade, receiving a plurality of the starts at second base (78) and endearing himself to Joe Maddon to the point of spotting at every other defensive position except catcher. After hitting well at just about every minor-league stop, he showed less pop and patience than PECOTA had projected, but enough to qualify as an average bat despite his low walk rate; while he mashed lefties (.292/.375/.442 in 136 PA), he flailed against righties (.229/.270/.372 in 224 PA, with a 60/7 K/BB ratio). Defensively, he was an asset at second base and didn't embarrass himself at any of the other positions. He'll probably see more time at the keystone in the wake of Reid Brignac's takeover at shortstop, but you can bet that Maddon will continue to utilize his versatility.
2010 A third-round 2003 pick by the Angels, Rodriguez hit well at just about every minor-league stop, but struggled during his extended 2008 major-league look. He continued to compile eye-popping numbers at hitter-friendly Salt Lake City in 2009, including the PCL's second-highest homer total, but rode the bench for the better part of his brief big-league stints. Sent to the Rays as the player to be named later in the Kazmir deal, he's probably bound for a utility role given the likely takeover of second base by Ben Zobrist. The keystone is Rodriguez's best position as well, as his arm is a bit stretched at third, and his range limited at shortstop; he does have the ability to play the outfield as well, so he might find enough playing time to make it worth his while.
2009 Rodriguez had a monster campaign at Triple-A last year, blasting 21 home runs in 66 games, but when he got his chance thanks to Howie Kendrick's hamstring, he just didn't get the job done, paradoxically revealing the secret of his success: he was taking advantage of a great hitter's park in a great hitter's league at Salt Lake. Rodriguez has little shot at sticking in a utility job, as his range is stretched at shortstop and his arm is stretched at third. For now he'll have to wait around for Kendrick to break again—which has been known to happen.
2008 The Angels have never fully committed to the idea that Rodriguez is a shortstop, giving him occasional time in center field and having him play a number of positions in the Arizona Fall League. His 2006 line looks like a Rancho Cucamonga mirage, so developing him as a utilityman to eventually replace Chone Figgins is a better idea than hoping he makes enough contact to be a major league infielder.
2007 His comps aren`t really helpful as far as conjuring up a mental image--try to think of him as a Ronnie Belliard type, and happily one without the tongue gymnastics. Like Belliard back in the day, he`s sort of squat and not especially athletic, so he`s not a scout`s prospect. Although Rodriguez has the arm to make a play from the hole, questions about his range are expected to drive him to second. He got homer-happy last summer, a consequence of hitting in the always-cozy Epicenter in Rancho Cucamonga. In the rest of the hitter-friendly Cal League, Rodriguez hit a less-exciting .256/.360/.433. He`s young and provides power at positions where it`s hard to come by, but in this organization, he`s blocked. Sprung, he could have a career as nifty as Belliard`s or better.
2006 While it might seem there`s not a lot to get excited about in talking about a shortstop behind the Kendricks and Woods in the organizational depth chart, his season in Cedar Rapids wasn`t too shabby for a 20-year-old. Rodriguez`s walk rate is a bright spot in this system, and a package of patience, speed, and promising power makes him an underrated prospect.
2005 Started off in the Midwest League, where he kept himself active, before being demoted to the more age-appropriate Pioneer League at its season's start. There, he posted a .339 EqA, but for a teenager getting his feet wet, no part of the season was a disappointment. Given the sheer number of middle-infield prospects in the organization, there's thought that the Angels might shift Rodriguez (S-Rod? Not yet) to catcher.

BP Chats

DateQuestionAnswer
2014-07-15 13:00:00 (link to chat)In a deep dynasty league (20 teams, 1000 players owned (MLB & MiLB): I'm potentially a playoff team if I can get my offense together. I have Fielder on the DL, with pretty much a zero (Sean Rodriguez) manning 1B. What to do? If Fielder is healthy next season and get back to his slugging ways, we all win, but his is an injury we haven't seen great success with in other players that have and it. What does the dynasty manager do in this situation?
(Jonah from Redwood)
Since you're competing, you see if you can get a legitimate return on Fielder. Obviously you can't get what you would've four-five months ago, but you should be able to easily upgrade S.Rodriguez (Paul Sporer)
2013-03-06 20:00:00 (link to chat)Sean Rodriguez playing 1b and some OF this spring. Is he a lost cause?
(Raul from Turning Stone Casino)
Nope, worth a $1 bid in AL-only auctions. (Paul Singman)
2012-12-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Please, please, please tell me that the Rays will remove Reid Brignac, Elliot Johnson and possibly Sean Rodriguez for better Utility IFers.
(jlarsen from chicago)
Is Geoff Blum still available? And on that note, I must take my leave. (Geoff Young)
2012-07-24 13:00:00 (link to chat)Just wondering if there's any hope for Ryan Raburn or Sean Rodriguez now. I thought they were great MI sleepers in April.
(Francisco from Toronto)
Raburn's BABIP is only .225 where's he's been comfortably over .300 in previous seasons. He appears to be walking and striking out at about the same rate as last season, but he wasn't really that valuable last season. I'd want to check out his approach a little bit more closely to see what's changed, but unless his bat speed is totally gone, he'll probably be better in the second half. But he won't be so much better that the Tigers will regret getting Omar Infante.

Sean Rodirguez just isn't that good a hitter. The problem this year is he's walking less than last season (and his BABIP in 2010 hasn't been repeated), but he could still be useful as super-sub reserve in real life. In fantasy, I don't see it. (Dan Turkenkopf)
2012-05-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any stats that you use that you feel are undervalued, even among stats people?
(Jason from Starbucks)
Yes--extra-base taken percentage. Baseball-Reference.com tracks it (XBT%). In the old days, we were all about offense, then the paradigm shifted to defense. I keep waiting on everyone to gravitate towards instinctive, heady baserunners, but it hasn't happened yet. Players who can go from first-to-third on a single or score from first on a double add value that I think can go unappreciated. Take Sean Rodriguez. He doesn't post great success rates on stolen bases, but you know that he gets baserunning if you've seen him during the run of play. (R.J. Anderson)
2012-03-23 12:00:00 (link to chat)Jason, what are some of the most important spring battles yet to be decided, where the winner might be worth $5+ just for being a full-timer?
(Sky from The Roc, NY)
If the Orioles end up stealing PA's from Reimold to give to Endy Chavez simply because they want a leadoff guy while Roberts is out, there's one. Sean Rodriguez now will get a majority of the playing time early at shortstop with Brignac out with the foot issue and Rodriguez's struggles vs RHP should hold down his value enough at the draft table where he could go for $5-7 and then double that in season because he has the potential to go 20/15 (Jason Collette)
2011-04-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Tampa Bay -- DOA?
(Mike from Cleveland)
The difference between the Rays and the Red Sox is that the loss of Longoria could be a crippling blow. Not only is he by far their best hitter, but putting Sean Rodriguez into a platoon at third base deprives Joe Maddon of the flexibility which his multi-position arrangement involving Ben Zobrist produces. Plus I was never sold on the idea that Dan Johnson is a real solution at first base. They're not dead yet, but the Rays are in worse shape than the Sox as far as the big picture goes. (Jay Jaffe)
2011-03-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Fantasy question. I am in a deep 20 team league with 5 keepers per season. Looking at 2nd baseman strictly for this season, who would be more valuable, Dustin Ackley or Sean Rodriguez. And looking at it from a more long term perspective, Ackley, Christian Colon, Grant Green (assuming he moves to 2nd) or Rodriguez,
(kcroyalsguy from KC)
I'd go with Sean Rodriguez. Better team. Ackley won't get called up until June, and I think Ackley's value lies more in his secondary skills than standard 5x5 stats. Long-term, out of those guys it absolutely has to be Ackley, no? He just projects to be a different caliber of player. (Jeremy Greenhouse)
2010-04-08 14:00:00 (link to chat)What kind of upside do you think Sean Rodriguez has with the Rays?
(Nick from Reno)
I've always liked him, and always found him a bit under-rated. I think he's a solid every day player, maybe even a touch above average. (Kevin Goldstein)
2010-02-17 16:00:00 (link to chat)If you're Andrew Friedman, do you sign Branyan, and if so, how do you make it work on the roster?
(Stephanie from DC)
Yeah, I think signing Branyan would be a great idea. He bats lefty and they've already got flexibility with Sean Rodriguez and Ben Zobrist on the roster. Clearly he isn't commanding a massive salary, so I don't really see the downside. Plus, the value of a marginal win to the Rays is very high. (Tommy Bennett)
2010-01-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)So if you're Andrew Friedman, and you have Zorilla, Bartlett, Brignac, Sean Rodriguez, and Matt Joyce all scrapping it out for 3 spots (RF, 2B, SS). Who do you play where, who do you put on the bench, and who do you put in AAA? Where are they being assigned on your fantasy lists?
(Stephanie from DC)
Zorilla at 2nd, Bartlett at SS for now, replace him with Brignac if necessary, Rodriguez in Z's old gig when he used to back up Aki (with occasional ABs elsewhere) and Joyce in RF. (Marc Normandin)
2009-12-01 13:00:00 (link to chat)What does the future hold for Sean Rodriguez in Tampa?
(Jack from TB)
Tough for me to answer that, given the Rays aren't even sure where he's going to play yet. He could fill the old Ben Zobrist role if they keep Z at second base, but with Aki gone maybe he gets to play second if Zobrist moves to the outfield permanently. Either way, I think he'll be productive in his role. (Marc Normandin)
2009-10-11 13:00:00 (link to chat)What do the Rays do, Matt Joyce/Sean Rodriguez/Reid Brignac all have spent more than enough time in AAA and really have nothing to prove. Do the Rays assume that Jason Bartlett's 2009 is nothing more than a "fluke" and shouldn't be expect from here on out?
(jlarsen from chicago)
I assume you think that Zobrist will be a 2B, Jake? I'm loathe to offer the Rays any advice, but like the Angels a couple years back, they're going to need to turn minor league talent into major league talent via trade. There's a point where "best available" stops being so good on a talent level, especially with a real issue of payroll and bullpen. (Will Carroll)
2009-09-07 13:00:00 (link to chat)Does the inclusion of Sean Rodriguez as the PTBNL in the Scott Kazmir trade change your opinion on it at all?
(eneff1 from Berkeley, CA)
I followed up on that element the next day, and no, not substantially. Rodriguez isn't going to stick at shortstop, and murdilating pitching in Utah in a repeat engagement isn't exactly a rare talent, as good as Rodriguez is. I don't think he'll be the next Jeff Kent, but I do think he can be a solid regular at second. The problem as I see it is that a solid regular at second is an easier commodity to find than a quality rotation regular. For me, the deal still boils down to how good Torres winds up, and that could be very good. (Christina Kahrl)
2009-07-31 14:00:00 (link to chat)The Angels just called up Sean Rodriguez and Bobby Wilson...no corresponding moves otherwise..mean anything?
(Hal from LA)
Don't they do something with Sean Rodriguez every fourth day? I wouldn't read into it. (Joe Sheehan)
2009-06-03 15:00:00 (link to chat)Hi Jay, thanks for your great work and the chat. What is your prognosis for my Angels this season? Time to send Kendrick and Aybar down and bring up Sean Rodriguez and Brandon Wood?
(Dennis from Monterey Park, CA)
I'd say the Howie Kendrick party is over, and while I don't think much of Rodriguez, the time to see what Wood can do is long overdue. Seriously, I think he and Jeff Clement are drinking from the same jug of bad organizational karma.

Three more questions. (Jay Jaffe)
