Leonardo Rodriguez

Recommended Posts

LeoRod's been absurdly consistent in his 9 stats this season - pitching 5 or 6 innings every time, never giving up more than 2 runs, a high of 3 walks - in his first game, a 0.78 WHIP in 49 innings, 59 SO's.

Again, Stauffer's been essenttially the same - except his innings haven't been nearly as consistent.  They seem to think Rodriquez can handle more innings than Stauffer.

Probably has something to do with Leo’s 50 IP last season vs Stauffer’s 12 IP.

Holt on Rodriguez: “Leo made some really nice improvements, both with his delivery and strike-throwing. It was really no surprise, to be honest with you, to see him perform the way he did. He largely was a fastball-slider mix and at the New York-Penn League level that was certainly effective.

“He was a guy that, on certain days, really tallied up some strikeouts. But he also got some early weak contact and got some ground balls. Performance-wise, there were so many good things about his year compared to where we saw him come in, even in spring training. He did a lot of good quality work down in extended spring with Rob Aviles and then was able to carry that into the Penn League.”

Rodriguez gives the Orioles a pitcher to dream on a bit due his size at 6-foot-7 and 215 pounds. Maybe he grows more into his frame, adds strength and velocity and becomes a top prospect over the next season or two.

“It’s tough to say this early,” Holt said. “You never really know who’s going to be a starter and a reliever in the big leagues until they can prove their durability over the long haul, so right now, with Leo, could he start in the big leagues? Perhaps. Could he be a reliever, a multi-inning reliever in the big leagues? Perhaps. It’s tough to say. But certainly, you like the frame, you like the ability to move well overall with a guy like him. So, there’s a lot to like.”
