White Sox's Jose Rodriguez: Returns to big leagues
Rodriguez was recalled from Double-A Binghamton on Friday.
Rodriguez was up briefly with the White Sox back in June but didn't receive a plate appearance. He's posted a .747 OPS with 18 home runs and 28 stolen bases in 87 games with Binghamton this season. The 22-year-old can handle second base, third base and shortstop.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Jose Rodriguez: Sent back to Double-A
The White Sox optioned Rodriguez to Double-A Birmingham on Monday.
Rodriguez appeared in only one game -- and did not draw a plate appearance -- during his week-long stay on Chicago's major-league roster. The 22-year-old infielder now returns to the Double-A level, where he has posted a .702 OPS with nine homers and nine steals in 44 games this season.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Jose Rodriguez: Brought up from Double-A
Rodriguez was recalled from Double-A Birmingham on Monday, LaMond Pope of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Rodriguez got off to a slow start with Birmingham but has put together a robust .353/.384/.662 slash line with five home runs and four stolen bases over his last 16 contests. The 22-year-old is regarded as one of the White Sox's better prospects and possesses an intriguing skill set for fantasy with some pop and speed. However, there's no guarantee that he'll play regularly, so fantasy managers shouldn't be rushing out to grab him.... See More ... See Less
White Sox's Jose Rodriguez: On track for spring training
White Sox assistant general manager Chris Getz said that Rodriguez (hand) is on track to be ready for spring training, James Fegan of The Athletic reports. "There certainly wasn't a hotter hitter in our system than Jose Rodriguez right before breaking his hamate bone [in an Aug. 20 game]," Getz said. "He's doing normal baseball activities right now, and he'll do that for a little bit longer. But he undoubtedly will be ready to go in spring training and show us what he's capable of doing."
Rodriguez was one of the more notable prospects that the White Sox added to their 40-man roster earlier this month. Before he was shut down for the season in late August after fracturing the hamate bone of his left hand on a home-run swing, Rodriguez produced a .280/.340/.430 slash line across 483 plate appearances at Double-A Birmingham. Though the second baseman looks like he'll get the opportunity to join big-league camp and theoretically compete for a spot on the White Sox's Opening Day roster, Rodriguez is more realistically headed for Triple-A Birmingham to begin the 2023 campaign....

White Sox's Jose Rodriguez: Joins 40-man roster
The White Sox added Rodriguez (hand) to their 40-man roster Tuesday.

White Sox's Jose Rodriguez: Improving results at Double-A
Rodriguez has hit .229/.280/.371 with one home run, five RBI and nine runs scored across 74 plate appearances to begin the season with Double-A Birmingham.
Rodriguez got very brief exposure at Double-A to conclude last season and was assigned to the level to begin 2022. He got off to a dreadful start, striking out at least once in seven of his first eight starts. However, Rodriguez has swung the bat better since, collecting at least one hit in 12 of his last 14 games, raising his average from .189 to .229. Still only 21-years-old, Rodriguez has moved through the White Sox system relatively quickly and is holding his own during his first extended look in the upper levels of the minor leagues....

White Sox's Jose Rodriguez: Serving as non-roster invitee
Rodriguez has been invited to big-league camp this spring.
Rodriguez progressed to High-A Winston-Salem in August of 2021 and finished the year by making four appearances at Double-A Birmingham. Across 33 games with the two clubs, he hit .346 with five homers, 21 runs, 19 RBI and five stolen bases. The 20-year-old will develop with the big-league coaching staff this spring but appears likely to begin the 2022 campaign in Birmingham.... See More ... See Less
