Rodriguez has the arsenal to pitch near the front of a big league rotation. His quick arm generates fastballs that sit at 92-93 mph and routinely reach 95-96. He imparts good spin on the ball too, allowing him to work down in the zone with a plus 78-82 mph curveball that features late bite and tilt. His power changeup is a bit firm but shows promise. Like most young flamethrowers, Rodriguez tends to overthrow and his command suffers as a result. At times he falls in love with his curveball, and he'll need to continue learning how and when to set it up.
