Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Officially makes player pool
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez is in the 60-man player pool that will report to the Mariners' summer camp, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

The promising 19-year-old appears highly unlikely to make the Opening Day cut, but he'll have a chance to continue his development during both summer camp and as part of a pool of 30 players not on the active roster once the regular season begins. Rodriguez's stint last season at High-A Modesto, where he slashed a jaw-dropping .462/.514/.738 across 72 plate appearances, certainly whet the appetite of both the organization and those holding him in dynasty formats, but his .154/.267/.154 slash over 15 Cactus League games this spring serves as a reminder he's still in need of further seasoning.

Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Expected to be on taxi squad
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mariners CEO John Stanton said Wednesday that he expects Rodriguez to be on the 30-man taxi squad this year, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Speaking on 710 ESPN Seattle, Stanton named Rodriguez, Jarred Kelenic, Cal Raleigh, Logan Gilbert, George Kirby and Emerson Hancock as likely candidates for the 30-man taxi squad. It has been rumored that players on the taxi squad will not accumulate major-league service time, so we will likely see many other top prospects around baseball traveling and working out with their respective big-league clubs. It's anyone's guess as to how many of them will end up actually playing in big-league games in 2020.

Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Unlikely to be on expanded roster
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez isn't likely to make his big-league debut during the coming season even if rosters are expanded as currently proposed, Corey Brock of The Athletic reports.

The 19-year-old decimated pitching at his first two professional stops in 2019, but he's yet to play above the High-A level. His overall lack of experience simply renders him insufficiently prepared to face big-league pitching on an everyday basis, and neither the extra roster spots that should be at manager Scott Servais' disposal nor a potential cancellation of the minor-league season are expected to change the strategy. However, if the latter circumstance does come to pass, it's certainly conceivable Rodriguez is part of a possible 20-man taxi squad that will ostensibly be made up of an organization's top prospects from various levels of the minors.

Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Reassigned to minor-league camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (illness) was reassigned to minor-league camp Tuesday, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.

The 19-year-old missed an opportunity to play in one final Cactus League game Monday because he was feeling under the weather. Rodriguez only slashed .154/.267/.154 over his 15 Cactus League games, but the stint provided him with some valuable reps against big-league arms. Rodriguez will likely open the season with High-A Modesto before continuing his climb up the organizational ladder.

Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Sent home with illness
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez left Mariners camp Monday afternoon because he was feeling under the weather, Daniel Kramer of MLB.com reports.

The 19-year-old blue-chip prospect was likely set to play his 10th Cactus League game Monday against the Brewers had he not been feeling sick. Rodriguez has scuffled against big-league arms thus far this spring, hitting .154 (2-for-13) across nine exhibitions. Given he counts the 17 games he logged at High-A Modesto last season as his most advanced stint in the minors, the outfielder is likely to return to the Nuts to start the 2020 season.

Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Gets first start of spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (back) will start in right field and bat seventh Wednesday in the Mariners' Cactus League game against the Reds, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Seattle's top prospect appeared off the bench in two of the team's first three Cactus League games, going 0-for-4 with three strikeouts between the contests. He'll now draw his first start of the spring, an indication that the Mariners are comfortable with where he stands on the health front after he was shut down during the final week of the Arizona Fall League due to a lower-back strain. Rodriguez will likely open the season at Double-A Arkansas or High-A Modesto, and he could have a chance at making his MLB debut later in 2020 if he proves he can handle upper-level competition in the minors.

Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Shut down for Arizona Fall League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez has a lower-back strain and will sit out the final week of the Arizona Fall League, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Rodriguez showcased himself extremely well in the AFL with a .288/.397/.365 slash line with four doubles and 10 RBI in 52 at-bats. The 18-year-old is one of the Mariners' top prospects and finished the 2019 season at High-A Modesto, posting a 1.252 OPS in 17 games. The injury is believed to be minor and shouldn't impact Rodriguez's availability for the start of spring training.

Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Heading to Arizona Fall League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez, who went 5-for-5 with two doubles, a triple, four RBI and two runs in High-A Modesto's win over Stockton on Wednesday, has received an invitation to play for the Peoria Javelinas in the Arizona Fall League, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Rodriguez's eye-popping stat line Wednesday perfectly encapsulates why the 18-year-old phenom is heading to the invite-only league, which begins play Sept. 18. Rodriguez has made an absolute mockery of High-A pitching over his first 12 games with the Nuts, going 27-for-46 (.587) with five doubles, three triples, one home run, 15 RBI, three walks and nine runs (50 total plate appearances).

Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Two hits in return to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (forearm) went 2-for-4 with two singles and two RBI in High-A Modesto's win over San Jose on Tuesday.

The 18-year-old was plunked on his left forearm and forced from Saturday's game. He was then held out of the lineup Sunday, though Rodriguez did pinch hit in that game, and he was ready to return to the starting lineup following Monday's team off day. Rodriguez became the youngest player to play in the Cal League this season when he was promoted last week, and all he's done is go 7-for-11 with a homer in his first four games with Modesto.

Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Hurting after HBP
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez exited early Saturday in High-A Modesto's 4-3 loss to Lancaster after he was struck by a pitch in the left forearm, Katie Woo of MiLB.com reports.

Rodriguez was hit in his second plate appearance of the game and was initially able to shake off the injury before being replaced two innings later. The 18-year-old, who went 4-for-5 in his High-A debut the previous day, is out of the lineup for Sunday's game, but the severity of his injury hasn't been clarified. Rodriguez previously missed two months earlier this season with a hairline fracture in his left hand.

Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Stars in Modesto debut
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez went 4-for-5 with a double, a home run and four RBI in High-A Modesto's win over Lancaster on Friday.

The 18-year-old phenom wasted no time making a splash at the High-A level, with Friday's game marking his debut after a promotion from Low-A West Virginia. The spectacular multi-hit effort pushed Rodriguez's minor-league slash line this season to .302/.367/.511 across 68 games.

Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Moving to California League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Mariners promoted Rodriguez from Low-A West Virginia to High-A Modesto on Thursday.

Rodriguez has feasted on South Atlantic League pitching all season, but he may have earned the promotion on the strength of a massive start through the first half of August. Over 13 games on the month, Rodriguez went 21-for-54 (.389 average) with eight extra-base hits and a 4:10 BB:K. The 18-year-old is the top prospect in the Mariners' system and one of the top overall prospects in the lower rungs of the minors.

Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Big day in Sally League
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez went 3-for-5 with a double, a home run and six RBI for Low-A West Virginia in its 10-9 loss to Delmarva on Wednesday.

In just 66 games in the South Atlantic League, Rodriguez has already tallied 31 extra-base hits. If he logged enough plate appearances to qualify, Rodriguez's .857 OPS would rank fifth on the circuit. That achievement is made even more impressive by the fact that he's more than four months away from his 19th birthday.

Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Returns from injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez (hand) was activated from the 7-day injured list at Low-A West Virginia on Monday, Emily Waldon of The Athletic reports.

Rodriguez wound up missing just shy of two months with a hairline fracture on his left hand. He'd started off hot for West Virginia prior to the injury, hitting .355/.444/.452 in nine games.

Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Suffers hairline fracture
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez was diagnosed with a hairline fracture on his left hand Friday and will be sidelined 4-to-6 weeks, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Initial X-rays showed that Rodriguez had avoided a fracture after being hit by a pitch last week, but he received a less favorable outlook Friday. The 18-year-old was tearing it up at Low-A West Virginia with a .355/.444/.452 slash line through 36 plate appearances, but is now slated to miss at least a month.

Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: X-rays bring good news
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

X-rays taken on Rodriguez's hand Saturday revealed no fracture, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

The good news means that Rodriguez is only slated to miss a handful of days at most, as opposed to the extended time he would have been sidelined for had there been a fracture. Rodriguez has built on an excellent season with the Mariners' Rookie League team in the Dominican Summer League last season with a .355/.444/.452 line through his first nine games with Low-A West Virginia.

Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Exits game Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez left Friday's game after he was hit by a pitch on his left hand, Greg Johns of MLB.com reports.

Fortunately for Rodriguez, there's no fracture in his hand and he won't miss extended time. The Venezuelan prospect is hitting .355/.444/.452 through nine games this season with Low-A West Virginia and could rise through the minor-league ranks quickly if he maintains his level of production.

Mariners' Julio Rodriguez: Stock could explode at Low-A
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Rodriguez is opening the year with Low-A West Virginia, Jonathan Mayo of MLB.com reports.

The stage is now set for Rodriguez's dynasty-league stock to explode. This is a pretty aggressive assignment for a player whose only pro experience to this point was in the Dominican Summer League last year, but Rodriguez has the upside to be a cleanup-hitting right fielder, and he could move very quickly through the minors if he is able to carry over last year's success against full-season pitching.
