He finished with a career .215 batting average with 10 home runs and 64 RBI while serving as catcher for future first-round picks in the Major League Baseball draft Gerrit Cole and Trevor Bauer. During his three seasons, the Bruins pitching staff owned a 3.33 earned-run average with over 1,700 strikeouts. In 2010, Rodriguez was a member of the United States Collegiate National team.

    Rodriguez was selected in the 15th round of the of the 2011 MLB amateur draft by the Arizona Diamondbacks and made it to as high as Double-A with both the Diamondbacks and the Braves. He hit .221 in his professional career with four home runs and 79 RBIs.
