Sean Rodriguez: Moves into coaching role
Rodriguez joined the Phillies as a player development instructor in early March, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.
The move ends Rodriguez's playing career, though he'd already faded from view, playing just four games in 2020 and none in 2021. He'll call it quits after spending parts of 13 seasons in the majors, hitting .226/.301/.379 with 81 career homers while appearing everywhere except catcher.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Sean Rodriguez: Returns to roster for NLDS
Rodriguez's contract was selected by Marlins on Tuesday, and he'll be on the team's active roster for the NL Division Series against the Braves.
The veteran will be a versatile utility player off the bench for the series, though the Marlins likely won't want him coming to the plate often. Over the last four seasons, Rodriguez is hitting .182/.294/.319.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Sean Rodriguez: Clears waivers
Rodriguez cleared waivers and was outrighted to the alternate training site Tuesday.
The 35-year-old was designated for assignment by the Marlins over the weekend and will remain in the organization after going unclaimed on waivers. Rodriguez appeared in four games and went 2-for-13 with six strikeouts.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Sean Rodriguez: DFA'd by Miami
Rodriguez was designated for assignment by the Marlins on Sunday.
The veteran utility man was activated from the injured list Tuesday, but he won't end up spending much time with the team. Rodriguez went 2-for-13 with six strikeouts in his four apperances.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Sean Rodriguez: Activated from IL
Rodriguez (undisclosed) was activated from the injured list Tuesday.
He missed over a month on the injured list for an undisclosed reason, but Rodriguez will now take the spot of Isan Diaz (groin strain) going forward. Look for him to be used as a utility option off the bench over the final two weeks of the season.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Sean Rodriguez: Placed on injured list
Rodriguez was placed on the 10-day injured list for an undisclosed reason Tuesday, Jared Diamond of The Wall Street Journal reports.
The Marlins didn't provide a reason for Tuesday's move, and if his absence is related to the team's COVID-19 outbreak, the team wouldn't legally be allowed to say so without Rodriguez's permission. The 35-year-old hadn't appeared in any of the Marlins' first three games this season, and it's unclear when he'll return to the field. Rodriguez hit .223/.348/.375 with 24 runs, 12 RBI and 41 strikeouts over 76 appearances with the Phillies last year.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Sean Rodriguez: Contract selected by Marlins
Rodriguez's contract was selected by the Marlins on Friday.
Rodriguez was assigned to Miami's alternate camp Thursday but will be part of the Opening Day roster after all in place of Jorge Alfaro, who was placed on the injured list for undisclosed reasons in a corresponding move. Rodriguez's defensive versatility is his greatest asset, as he appeared everywhere except catcher in limited action for the Phillies last season, but he doesn't do a ton with his bat. He's a lifetime .226/.302/.380 hitter who's produced an above-average batting line in just one of his 12 big-league seasons.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Sean Rodriguez: Moved to alternate camp
Rodriguez was reassigned to Miami's alternative camp site Thursday, Andre Fernandez of The Athletic reports.
Rodriguez played every position except catcher for the Phillies in 2019, so he'll provide organizational depth across the board for Miami in 2020. He hit .223 with four homers in 139 plate appearances last season.... See More ... See Less
Marlins' Sean Rodriguez: Will join Miami's player pool
Rodriguez, who was released by the Marlins over the weekend, will re-sign with the club and is set to be included in the team's 60-man roster pool, Craig Mish of SportsGrid.com reports.
Miami's roster pool currently sits at 57 members, but the team has since filled two of the remaining three spots with the additions of reliever Nick Vincent and Rodriguez, who both likely have agreements in place on minor-league deals. Before spring training was suspended in mid-March, Rodriguez was already a candidate to break camp with the club as a member of the 26-man Opening Day roster, and the expanded roster size coupled with his ability to play all over the infield and outfield should only bolster his chances of sticking around with Miami for the duration of 2020....

Marlins' Sean Rodriguez: Signs minors deal with Miami
Rodriguez signed a minor-league contract with the Marlins on Tuesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.
The 34-year-old played every position except catcher for the Phillies last season. That flexibility should help his chances of winning a bench spot, though he's unlikely to earn a major role due to his weak .226/.302/.380 career slash line.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Sean Rodriguez: Hits walkoff shot
Rodriguez went 1-for-2 with a walkoff solo homer in Monday's win over the Pirates.
The journeyman defeated his former team with a homer to lead off the 11th inning against Michael Feliz, sending the Phillies home victorius. Rodriguez's versatility has kept him around as a veteran bench option, but his .214/.316/.393 slash line on the season (his best performance in three years) doesn't suggest he'd be a particularly appealing fantasy option should injuries open up more at-bats down the stretch....

Phillies' Sean Rodriguez: Seeing limited work
Rodriguez is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Marlins.
Rodriguez has started only once in the Phillies' last 11 games and shouldn't see his opportunities pick up anytime soon with the team leaning heavily on its regulars while earning a wild-card spot remains realistic. The veteran's lack of steady playing time lately has probably hurt him when he's summoned for pinch-hitting chances, as he's gone just 1-for-18 at the dish in August.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Sean Rodriguez: Big game in rare start
Rodriguez went 3-for-4 with a home run, two RBI and two additional runs Saturday in the Phillies' 15-7 loss to the Braves.
After being activated from the 10-day injured list Wednesday, Rodriguez was on the bench for his first two games back with the Phillies before entering the lineup in left field Saturday. He came through with a big performance in the blowout loss, but it's unlikely to result in the veteran seeing increased opportunities. Manager Gabe Kapler seems fairly committed to rolling out Bryce Harper, Scott Kingery and Adam Haseley as the team's everyday outfield.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Sean Rodriguez: Returns from IL
The Phillies reinstated Rodriguez (abdomen) from the 10-day injured list Wednesday.
Rodriguez had been sidelined for just under three weeks with the abdominal strain but proved his health by resuming baseball activities in recent days without any setbacks. He'll assume the active roster spot of fellow utility man Brad Miller, who landed on the IL with a hip flexor strain.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Sean Rodriguez: Out with abdominal strain
Rodriguez landed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a right abdominal strain.
Rodriguez has met expectations as a replacement-level bench player for the Phillies this season, posting a playable .224/.324/.379 slash line while starting at five different positions. The transaction was made retroactive to Wednesday, so Rodriguez could be back as soon as next Saturday if healthy. Adam Haseley was recalled in a corresponding move.... See More ... See Less
Phillies' Sean Rodriguez: Slugs second home run
Rodriguez came on as a pinch hitter and hit a solo home run in his only at-bat in Thursday's loss to the Braves.
Rodriguez was called upon to pinch hit in the sixth inning and delivered a 414-foot blast to center field. It was his first home run since April 25 -- a span of 50 at-bats. Functioning primarily as a pinch hitter, Rodriguez is slashing .214/.318/.375 in 56 at-bats this season.... See More ... See Less
