No doubt he needs some more seasoning. Before this game, Rodrigez's AAA line was .280/ .294/ .360/ .654.
Let's wait to see how well he does after 200 - 300 more ABs in the upper minors just to make sure he's of possible help to the major league club. If he hits well (after 55 ABs-- .327/ .339/ .455/ .794), then, in September, he can come up and play some 3B, perhaps some 2B and give rest where needed.
I will say that his the type of bat the Reds definitely need. He's a switch hitter and has a high BA-driven obp without K'ing too much.
