Endy Rodriguez

22-Year-Old CatcherC
Pittsburgh Pirates AAA
2023 Fantasy Outlook
Rodriguez put on an offensive masterclass last season, slashing .323/.407/.590 with a 19.0 K%, 11.3 BB%, 25 home runs and four steals in 125 games across the three highest levels of the minors. He primarily played catcher, but also played 18 games at second base, showcasing his versatility and decent athleticism relative to most catching prospects. Steamer even projects Rodriguez as a significantly above-average MLB hitter as a rookie (118 wRC+). There's essentially nothing to nitpick in the stats -- his strikeout rate dipped at every level he ascended to and he had an ISO north of .240 at all three levels. While Rodriguez is a solid athlete who can play other infield positions in a pinch, he isn't a Bo Naylor or Daulton Varsho type of stolen-base threat. There is no reason Rodriguez shouldn't debut sometime early in 2023, as he is already on the 40-man roster, but even the best catching prospects sometimes struggle initially against big-league pitching, and Rodriguez's team context will suppress counting stats.

Optioned to Triple-A
CPittsburgh Pirates  AAA
March 14, 2023
The Pirates optioned Rodriguez to Triple-A Indianapolis on Tuesday.
The 22-year-old catching prospect tore his way through the minors last season, slashing .323/.407/.590 between the High-A, Double-A and Triple-A levels. While he will begin 2023 in Triple-A, Rodriguez's offensive abilities, defensive versatility and Pittsburgh's lack of production behind the plate at the major-league level all make him a candidate to be called up early in the season.
