Rodriguez was promoted to Double-A Altoona on Tuesday, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

Rodriguez earned a shot at the next level by going 21-for-43 (.488) with seven homers and 12 RBI over his last 12 games at the High-A level. The 22-year-old is one of two talented catching prospects in Pittsburgh's organization, and he should see the bulk of the starts until the other one -- Henry Davis (wrist) -- is ready to return.
