Jose Rodriguez is a 2007 OF/1B/3B with a 6'2'', 215 lb. frame from Hialeah FL, who attends Hialeah HS. He has a big and strong athletic build, with good proportions and the chance to get even stronger. Rodriguez is surprisingly athletic for his size, running the 60 in 6.93 and showing loose actions and lightness on his feet. He's a solid outfielder with a strong, accurate throwing arm and could play either of the corner outfield positions at the next level. He has also played the corner infield positions in the past. Offensively, Rodriguez hits out of a wide stance with no stride into the ball. He takes a hard, aggressive swing and creates very good bat speed and leverage at contact. The ball jumps off his bat hard. Rodriguez doesn't have any real rhythm to start his swing; if he added this he could really blossom as a hitter. Right now he's pretty much just overpowering the ball and he has the strength to do that. Rodriguez is a good student who has signed to go to South Carolina.
