2019 Fantasy Outlook
On the surface, Rodriguez, the son of Hall of Famer Ivan "Pudge" Rodriguez, had a brilliant rookie season and appears worthy of inclusion in that tier of emerging frontline starters with the likes of Walker Buehler and Jack Flaherty. That's why it's important to get under the hood -- Rodriguez is nowhere near as good as those aforementioned arms. He managed just an 18.3% strikeout rate, and even that mark may have been higher than he deserved (8.6% swinging-strike rate and 57.5% first-pitch strike rate). His walk rate was decent enough at 7.4%, but he had just a 42.7 Zone%, which doesn't portend great control numbers moving forward. He does have the fortune of pitching in the cavernous Oracle Park (formerly AT&T Park), but Rodriguez is not a big groundball pitcher and his opponents' hard-hit rate of 39.4% suggests the long ball could become a problem on the road. If the price gets any higher than a few bucks, pass. Read Past Outlooks

Optioned to Triple-A
PSan Francisco Giants  AAA
May 11, 2019
Rodriguez was optioned to Triple-A Sacramento on Saturday.
Rodriguez has been unable to replicate his 2.81 ERA from his rookie season, stumbling to a 5.05 mark in his first eight starts of the year. He's likely to be given a chance to improve on that number at some point later in the season. Erik Kratz (hamstring) was activated from the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.
