Rodriguez (oblique) was activated from the disabled list Saturday. Rodriguez is good to go after missing the first part of June with an oblique injury. The 25-year-old is currently currently slashing .258/.304/.353 across 47 games with Columbus this season.
Rodriguez was placed on the minor-league disabled list with an oblique injury. Rodriguez left the second game of Wednesday's doubleheader with Scranton/Wilkes-Barre early, and now it's apparent why. No timetable for his return has been revealed, but oblique injuries tend to keep players on the shelf for a good amount of time, so there's a good chance this could be a multi-week absence.
Rodriguez is one of three candidates in the race for the team's utility role on the bench, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports. Rodriguez is competing for the job against Michael Martinez and Erik Gonzalez, both of whom had stints with the Tribe last season. Although the 24-year-old Rodriguez is the long shot, the coaches are reportedly keeping a close eye on all the possible options. Rodriguez hit .258/.293/.400 with 10 homers, 59 RBI and scored 48 runs for Triple-A Columbus last season.
