BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2013 Wilking Rodriguez has lost much of the last two years to arm injuries, jeopardizing both his development and his spot on the 40-man roster.
2012 He has thrown fewer than 160 innings over the past two seasons due to shoulder woes, but the Rays thought enough of Rodriguez to protect him on the 40-man roster this offseason. Rodriguez was 10th on Goldstein's organizational rankings last season with this caveat: "He just needed innings to refine his game." Unfortunately, shoulder problems limited him to just 45 innings of work at two different levels. The mid-90s velocity is still there, but the fact that at age of 22 he hasn't thrown a single pitch at an advanced level of the minor leagues is somewhat concerning.

2013-11-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Which minor league FA intrigues you the most?
(Omar from Atlanta )
There are quite a few guys that intrigue me, and if you go back to my personal scouting biases/preferences that I discussed earlier, it won't be a shock who those are, and most of them are power arms like Santo Manzanillo, Fautino De Los Santos (suspension and all), Jhan Marinez and Wilking Rodriguez. (Mark Anderson)
2012-06-04 13:00:00 (link to chat)Best arm in the Rays system that nobody talk about?
(Glow from Memphis)
Wilking Rodriguez is in the mid-90s as a starter, and he could tick up if he moves to the bullpen. (Bradley Ankrom)
