2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 2017 July 2 international signing class appears to be one of the better ones in recent years, and Rodriguez is a big reason why. A 6-foot-3, 180-pound right fielder with a fantasy-over-reality profile, he received a $1.75 million bonus on the strength of his monster raw power and potential for a plus hit tool. That upside was on full display in the Dominican Summer League, where he logged a 161 wRC+, .210 ISO, 11.8 BB% and 15.7 K%. A right-handed hitter, he obviously mashed lefties (1.005 OPS), but his .899 OPS against same-handed pitchers suggests he could be an everyday player. It is dangerous to get too caught up in DSL statistics, as the quality of competition is extremely low -- Rodriguez was 17 and wasn't even one of the 15 youngest hitters in the league. However, he confirmed the scouting report in his pro debut, meaning he has already been scooped up in serious dynasty leagues that allow in-season pickups. Read Past Outlooks

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