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

Lasts three innings
PSan Francisco Giants
September 29, 2018
Rodriguez struck out one and allowed five runs on six hits and three walks over three innings in a 10-6 loss to the Dodgers on Saturday. He did not factor into the decision.
ANALYSIS
Rodriguez allowed solo home runs to Joc Pederson and Yasiel Puig in the first inning and then exited in the fourth inning after allowing two hits and a walk without recording an out. The 26-year-old ended his rookie campaign on a sour note but still posted a 2.81 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 89:36 K:BB across 118.1 innings.
