Rodriguez was optioned to Triple-A San Antonio on Wednesday.
Rodriguez was competing for a utility role in camp but never seemed like a favorite to win one, as he owns a poor .221/.254/.396 slash line in 500 career appearances at the big-league level. He could still push for a bench spot later this season.
Rodriguez went 2-for-3 with two RBI in Tuesday's spring game against the Royals.
Rodriguez remains in the mix for a utility spot on the Brewers' Opening Day roster, and the multi-hit game came at the right time, as he had not recorded even one hit in a game since Feb. 24. There are a number of players competing with Rodriguez for spots, so a strong finish to the exhibition season would go a long way in securing one.
Rodriguez was claimed off waivers by the Brewers on Monday.
Rodriguez's primary value in 84 games for the Tigers last season came through playing five different positions, as he offered very little at the plate, hitting just .221/.252/.438. He does have enough power to potentially be useful if he wins a bench role, though he may not get on base often enough to win a roster spot, depending on what other moves the Brewers make this winter.
Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's 5-3 loss to the White Sox.
Rodriguez waited for the last inning of the season to hit his 14th home run of the year. The 27-year-old also struck out 27.9 percent of the time this season, which contributed to his low .221 batting average and .252 on-base percentage.
Rodriguez is starting at third base and batting fifth in Sunday's game against the White Sox.
Rodriguez has fallen into a reserve role with the Tigers, though he'll pick up one more start to finish out 2019. The 27-year-old has displayed decent pop with 13 home runs in 272 at-bats, though his .217/.248/.426 slash line and 27.9 strikeout rate leave plenty to be desired.
Rodriguez remains on the bench Sunday against the Orioles, Roch Kubatko of MASN Sports reports.
Rodriguez sits for the third straight game. It's hard to say his loss of playing time is undeserved, as he owns an awful .097/.152/.097 slash line in nine games in the month of September and just a .683 OPS on the season. Jordy Mercer will start at second base.
Rodriguez is not in Saturday's lineup against the Orioles.
He is hitting just .100 with 11 strikeouts in 30 at-bats this month. Harold Castro is starting at second base and batting second.
Rodriguez will not start Friday against the Orioles.
Rodriguez has gone 3-for-30 over his last eight games, Jordy Mercer will get the start at second base in his absence.
Rodriguez went 1-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored in Game 1 of Thursday's doubleheader against the Yankees.
Rodriguez drove home a run in the seventh inning on a groundout to shortstop, but it wasn't enough for the Tigers to emerge with the victory. He entered the day hitless in his last three ballgames (0-for-9), though his performance Thursday was a step in the right direction.
Rodriguez isn't in the starting lineup for Tuesday's game against the Yankees, Evan Woodbery of MLive.com reports.
Rodriguez went 0-for-2 with a strikeout and a walk in Sunday's series finale, and he'll head to the bench following a team off day. Harold Castro gets the nod at second base and is set to hit second.
Rodriguez is not starting Friday against Oakland.
Rodriguez hits the bench for the second time in three games. Harold Castro will start at second base in his absence.
Rodriguez is not in the lineup Wednesday against the Royals.
Rodriguez sits after starting 16 straight games. He's hit a solid .262/.277/.574 over that stretch. Harold Castro starts at second base Wednesday.
Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with a pair of home runs and five RBI in a 10-7 victory against the Twins on Saturday.
The 27-year-old had a two-run homer in the third as well as the sixth while adding a sacrifice fly for a fifth RBI. All of a sudden, Rodriguez has some major pop, as he hit six homers in his final 12 games of August. He is batting .236 with 13 home runs, 39 RBI, 26 runs and three steals in 220 at-bats this season.
Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with a double, a home run, two runs scored and two RBI in Friday's 13-5 loss to the Twins.
His eighth-inning solo shot off Sam Dyson was too little, too late for the Tigers, but it did give Rodriguez 11 homers through 67 games in the majors this year. His .228/.254/.461 slash line is less impressive, however, and while the 27-year-old is a fixture in the starting lineup right now due to an injury to Niko Goodrum (groin), Rodriguez is likely ticketed for a utility role next season.
Rodriguez went 3-for-5 with his first career grand slam and a second run scored in Friday's 9-6 win over the Twins.
His sixth-inning blast effectively chased Jose Berrios from the game and gave the Tigers a lead they wouldn't relinquish. Rodriguez is red hot right now, starting six straight games and slashing .364/.417/.773 with three homers and six RBI, and with Niko Goodrum (groin) landing on the injured list Friday, there should be plenty of playing time available for the 27-year-old moving forward.
Rodriguez went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Wednesday's 2-1 win over the Astros.
Detroit mustered just two hits against Houston ace Justin Verlander, but Rodriguez made his count, launching his ninth home run of the season in the fifth inning to put the Tigers up 1-0. The 27-year-old utility player homered twice during the three games in Houston, and he showed earlier this year that he's capable of hot streaks with a little power, though a slump is often not far behind.
Rodriguez went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Monday's 5-4 loss to the Astros.
It was Rodriguez's eighth home run of the season but just his second since May 14. The 27-year-old cooled off dramatically after a hot start to the season, and he's now hitting .224 following Monday's two-hit effort. Rodriguez will offer infield depth with occasional power the rest of the year.
Rodriguez was recalled from Triple-A Toledo and is starting at first base and batting sixth Sunday against the Royals.
Rodriguez swung a hot bat for the Tigers from mid-April through mid-May, but then proceeded to hit .140 with 32 strikeouts in 31 games from May 15 to June 30 before being banished to the minors. He will offer infield depth for the big club going forward. JaCoby Jones (wrist fracture) was placed on the 10-day injured list in a corresponding move.
Rodriguez was optioned to Triple-A Toledo following Sunday's game against the Nationals.
Rodriguez struggled to a .218 average over 52 games in the big leagues, resulting in a demotion for the 27-year-old. Jordy Mercer (quadriceps) is expected to be activated from the 10-day injured list Monday in a corresponding move.
Rodriguez went 1-for-2 with a two-run home run in Tuesday's 5-3 loss to the Rangers.
Rodriguez didn't get into the game until a pinch-hitting appearance in the seventh inning, and then he got the Tigers closer with his ninth inning home run, giving him seven long balls this season. The 27-year-old has cooled considerably since a strong start to the season, and he's fallen into a reserve infielder role, which severely limits his fantasy utility.
