BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2015 Ronny Rodriguez had his second straight year of backsliding after a breakout 2012; he's playing the corner infield spots a lot more these days, another hit to his stock.
2014 Rodriguez burst onto the scene with 19 homers in High-A during his second professional season, then took his lumps in Double-A last year, as many evaluators predicted. The Dominican infielder first signed with the Cubs in 2008, but that contract was voided when he attended high school in Boston, which forced him to wait until 2010 to join the Tribe. By that point, Rodriguez was behind on the development curve, and three years later the chinks in his armor came to light. There is four-tool potential here, though Rodriguez needs to shore up his plate approach for his power to play and improve his footwork to utilize his 70-grade arm at shortstop. Doing one of those in a repeat stint at Akron would revive his prospect stock; doing both could make Rodriguez a quality regular.
2013 Nice power for his size and age, but there isnít much else to Rodriguez's offensive game. Thankfully, the power alone may be enough to carry him offensively, when matched with the defense value of his great arm. There is still debate about whether he profiles as an eventual shortstop or second baseman, though obviously sticking at the former would give him a lot more leeway at the dish. His overly aggressive approach stunts his potential for batting average, especially since right-handers eat him alive. Lefties, meanwhile, donít stand a chance against him. This is becoming a running theme with the teamís prospects: He is still far off, leaving a lot unanswered at this early point. Cleaning up his approach against righties should be his first order of business, though.
2012 The numbers aren't there for Ronny Rodriguez, but several quality tools are, and that's what's important for such a young player at a premium position.
