Rodriguez was placed on the 7-day injured list at Triple-A Salt Lake on Saturday with a right lat strain, Daniel Guerrero of reports.

He was optioned to the minors Wednesday after starting one half of Tuesday's doubleheader, and it appears he suffered the lat injury either during that start or during a side session afterwards. Rodriguez was a strong candidate to return to the majors in short order, but now he should be considered out indefinitely.
