What makes Rodriguez interesting is that he sounds like a very good fit for the Reds bench. Switch hitter, superior hitting skills, even if he lacks power and is only a passable fielder.
I could easily see him in the Cairo spot, second and third base backup who pinch hits and plays occasionally. Then, depending on how he does, maybe he gets a larger role.
I expect Frazier at third full time next year, but HRod on the bench sounds good to me.
