Rodriguez suffered from quadriceps discomfort while playing in a game Tuesday for Dominican Winter League club Leones del Escogido. Rodriguez will presumably be evaluated over the next few days before a determination is made on his status for the remainder of the DWL season. After the 2020 minor-league season was cancelled and he missed extended time at the Mariners' alternate training site with a fractured wrist, Rodriguez chose to head to the Dominican Republic for the winter to make up for the lost developmental work.
Rodriguez (wrist) is back to participating in baseball activities at the Mariners' alternate training site in Tacoma, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports. The elite prospect continues to recover at a steady clip, as Drayer adds that general manager Jerry Dipoto estimates Rodriguez could be back in intrasquad games within the next week as well. Rodriguez already shifted to a soft cast earlier in August, and it appears he'll have a chance to get plenty of work in during September ahead of the offseason.
Rodriguez (wrist) had his hard cast removed Tuesday and transitioned to a soft cast. The 19-year-old was limited to one-handed swings since sustaining the hairline fracture in mid-July, and he'll continue working to regain the strength in his left wrist. Rodriguez was initially given a 4-to-6 week recovery timeline, so he's unlikely to gain full clearance until the latter stages of August.
Mariners general manager Jerry DiPoto said that Rodriguez (wrist) will have his cast removed Tuesday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports. Rodriguez has been limited to one-handed swings since suffering a hairline fracture in his left wrist in mid-July, but he should be able to take full hacks at the plate shortly after the cast is removed. The Mariners estimated that Rodriguez was expected to miss 4-to-6 weeks due to the injury, so he likely won't be ready to play in simulated games at the team's alternate training site in Tacoma until the second half of August.
Rodriguez, who suffered a hairline fracture in his left wrist Wednesday, was already taking one-handed swings in the batting cage Monday, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports. Rodriguez is supposed to be shut down from all baseball activities for 4-to-6 weeks and officially isn't expected to be ready for game action until the Dominican Winter League at the earliest. However, manager Scott Servais noted Monday that Rodriguez's abundance of energy led to the 19-year-old taking his hacks in the cage, as Rodriguez is determined to stay in shape through his recovery. Whether the prospect's clear desire to compete can translate to a quicker-than-expected return remains to be seen, but Monday's development at least implies Rodriguez will likely push for the chance to remain involved in baseball activities as much as possible.
