  • Rodriguez struck out a career-high 12 over five innings for Double-A Bowie in a 6-2 win over Erie on Sunday. He permitted one unearned run on two hits and one walk in the 83-pitch outing. Heading into Sunday's start, Rodriguez had already dazzled over his first seven outings at Double-A, posting a 2.34 ERA and 0.81 WHIP while recording 45 punchouts in 34.2 innings. He somehow managed to raise the bar against a loaded Erie lineup, which featured a trio of highly regarded Tigers prospects in Spencer Torkelson, Riley Greene and Dillon Dingler. The 21-year-old righty looks like one of the top pitching prospects in all of baseball, and if he continues to dominate in the upper levels of the minors, he should be on track to join Baltimore's big-league rotation by the middle of 2022.

  • Rodriguez has posted a 1.82 ERA, 0.83 WHIP and 36:7 K:BB through five starts with Double-A Bowie. The 21-year-old righty dominated across five starts in High-A before being promoted, and he hasn't missed a beat with the move to a higher level of competition. All in all, he's surrendered just nine runs in 10 minor-league starts this year with a 76:12 K:BB in 48.0 innings. Rodriguez's future looks extremely bright, though he probably won't make his MLB debut until next year.

  • Rodriguez will be promoted and make his next start for Double-A Bowie. Rodriguez has dominated at High-A Aberdeen with a 1.54 ERA, 0.69 WHIP and 40:5 K:BB across five starts this season. The right-hander will move up and look to keep up the success at Bowie in the next step of his development.

  • Rodriguez is 2-0 with a 1.47 ERA, 0.71 WHIP and a 31:4 K:BB in 18.1 innings through his first four starts at High-A Aberdeen. After the cancellation of the 2020 minor-league season, Rodriguez has picked up right where he left off in 2019, when he was named the Orioles' Jim Palmer Minor-League Co-Pitcher of the Year along with Michael Baumann. While making the jump from Low-A Delmarva to the High-A level, Rodriguez hasn't been phased by the improved competition. Blessed with a deep repertoire that includes a high-90s four-seamer, curveball, cutter and spinning changeup, the 21-year-old Rodriguez looks like the top pitching prospect in the Baltimore system.

  • The Orioles added Rodriguez to their 60-man roster pool Wednesday, Dan Connolly of The Athletic reports. Rodriguez's inclusion in the pool is likely just a measure for Baltimore to more closely monitor the development of its top pitching prospect following the cancellation of the 2020 minor-league baseball season. The 20-year-old right-hander made his full-season debut in 2020 and overwhelmed the South Atlantic League competition, posting a league-leading 24.7 K-BB% to go with a 2.68 ERA in 94 innings. He'll report to Baltimore's alternate training site in Bowie.
