Pirates acquire Josh Rodriguez

The Pirates reacquired IF Josh Rodriguez from the Cleveland Indians today for cash considerations. Rodriguez started off the season on the Pirates’ 25-man roster after the team chose him 1st overall in the Rule 5 Draft this offseason. However, he was returned to the Indians after being designated for assignment when the team claimed Brandon Wood.

Rodriguez hit .083/.214/.083 in 14 plate appearances during his tenure in the Majors this season and hasn’t performed much better in AAA-Columbus. In 65 plate appearances since being sent back to the Cleveland organization he is hitting .193/.270/.316.

Rodriguez will be sent to AAA and will probably be used just about everywhere on the diamond down there as a utility player.
