    Pirates Designate Josh Rodriguez For Assignment

    The Pirates designated infielder Josh Rodriguez for assignment and recalled Pedro Ciriaco from Triple-A, according to the team.

    Rodriguez, 26, was claimed by the Pirates from the Indians as the first pick in the December Rule 5 draft. If he's not traded or claimed in the next ten days, the Pirates have to offer him back to the Indians for $25K or work out a trade to keep him. If another team picks up Rodriguez, they'll still be subject to the Rule 5 restriction of keeping him in the Majors all year.

    Would it be worth a shot to grab Josh Rodriguez? The Reds could use him this year as a utility man. Does he have options left in future years? If so then next year the Reds can option him. This is similar to what the Reds did with Burton.

    The Pirates just designated him, that should tell you something.

    This was a writeup on Rodriguez before the Rule V draft.

    http://jaysjournal.com/2010/11/30/ru...ition-players/

    IF/OF Josh Rodriguez (Indians):

    Like Marquez Smith, Rodriguez started out the year in Double-A and finished 2010 in Triple-A. He had a hot start in Double-A which earned him his promotion though, where he continued his success with a .293/.372/.486 line in 86 games with AAA Columbus. The 26-year-old also managed 12 HR and 46 RBI.

    Rodriguez, a second round pick by the Indians in the 2006 draft, played six positions in 2010 (LF, CF, RF, 3B, SS, 2B), and could be an option for the Jays to pick up in the draft

    SATURDAY: Pirates GM Neal Huntington told Colin Dunlap of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette there "is a process that we have to go through," when asked about Rodriguez's future. "The first is the ability to see if there's a trade partner out there. The second is he'd have to clear waivers. We will work through those two processes first and go from there."

    In order to keep him they would have to release either Cairo or Rentaria.....I don't think that's happening. Before bringing in this guy, I would think they would look at the stocked infield at Lousiville and promote somebody.

    The reds have come a long way. Bob C talked about changing the organization and you have to give him props because that's exactly what he's done. There's no reason for this organization to be interested in somebody else's failed rule v pick.
    "Even a bad day at the ballpark beats the snot out of most other good days. I'll take my scorecard and pencil and beer and hot dog and rage at the dips and cheer at the highs, but I'm not ever going to stop loving this game and this team and nobody will ever take that away from me." Roy Tucker October 2010
