Rodriguez has about 300 AB's of sub .600 OPS at AAA; Lutz, at 24, has about 225 Double AA AB's at around .300 OBP and roughly .750 OPS. Neither is outstanding defensively. Because I love the Reds, I hope the two of them become all stars, but neither is, IMHO, anywhere close to being a major league everyday player.
