Rodrgiuez was reassigned to minor league camp Sunday. The 32-year-old is hitless in five spring plate appearances, and given his unimpressive showings in the minor leagues over the past few seasons, this move comes as no surprise. Rodriguez will likely spend another season serving as organizational depth.
Rodriguez signed a minor league contract with the A's that includes an invite to spring training, CSN Bay Area reports. The soon-to-be 32-year-old attended big-league camp with the A's last spring but opened the year at Double-A. Rodriguez eventually returned to the Triple-A level and posted a 24:25 BB:K with the top affiliate, and he also has a bit of power, but he will be a long shot to break camp with Oakland. He's bounced between with five different organizations in his 11 pro seasons and hasn't reached the majors since 2011.
The Marlins have signed shortstop Josh Rodriguez to a minor-league deal. Rodriguez was with the Mets last season, but did not appear in the majors. He hit .272/.371/.390 in 522 plate appearances.
