Julio Rodríguez News
Seattle Mariners outfielder Julio Rodriguez was on base often on Sunday in the close 9-8 loss to the division-rival Texas Rangers. Rodriguez finished the day 2-for-4 at the plate with a double, two runs scored, a walk and two strikeouts. The 22-year-old All-Star and last year's American League Rookie of the Year is now hitting .284/.343/.497 with an .839 OPS, a league-leading 179 hits, a career-high 31 home runs, 37 doubles, two triples, an even 100 RBI, 36 stolen bases and an even 100 runs scored in 148 games in just his second year in the big leagues. He's contributed 26 hits in 95 at-bats (.274) with seven long balls, six doubles, a triple, 13 RBI, a stolen base and 18 runs scored in 22 starts in the month of September.
Seattle Mariners outfielder Julio Rodriguez (hand) is undergoing precautionary X-rays on Wednesday after getting hit by a pitch on his left hand in the game against the Oakland Athletics. Rodriguez was hit in the hand in the third inning but stayed in for the entire game, so it doesn't seem to be an injury that will keep the 22-year-old All-Star out for an extended period of time. In the 6-3 victory, J-Rod went 1-for-4 with his 31st home run of the year (a solo shot), the hit by pitch and two strikeouts. We'll keep an eye on his X-ray results, but with an off day coming on Thursday, he could be right back in the lineup for the start of a big series on Friday against the division-rival Texas Rangers. Rodriguez is now only the third player in franchise history with a 100-RBI season by the age of 22.
Seattle Mariners outfielder Julio Rodriguez went 4-for-5 with his 30th home run of the year, a double, two RBI and two runs scored in the 8-5 loss to the visiting Los Angeles Angels in 11 innings on Monday night. With the strong performance, Rodriguez joined Braves superstar Ronald Acuna Jr. as the only players with 30 home runs and 30 stolen bases in 2023. Last year's American League Rookie of the Year has been even better in his second year in the big leagues, slashing .287/.342/.504 with an .847 OPS, 30 long balls, 33 doubles, two triples, 97 RBI, 36 stolen bases and 92 runs scored in 137 games. His 168 hits lead the league. Since Aug. 13, J-Rod has gone an absurd 47-for-112 (.420) with 11 homers, eight doubles, a triple, 31 RBI, nine steals and 23 runs in 24 starts. He can do it all.
J-Rod walked away with the Rookie of the Year Award easily after posting a sweet .282/.343/.505 slash line while adding 28 homers and 25 steals. Now we have an uber-talented player at the age of 22 with an improving lineup behind him, and he's already shown the ability to dominate Major League pitching. He swings the bat with incredible force (117.2 max exit velocity, 51% hard-hit rate) and limits the strikeout enough (26% K%) to post great numbers all across the board. The one thing to note is that his base stealing slowed down significantly after a hot start to the year in that category. He swiped nine bases in April, and then five more in each of May and June, but then just two per month the rest of the way out. There's some doubt that he'll be a 30-steals guy next year because of that, but there should be little doubt that this is a guy who hit a ton of homers, score a bunch of runs, and steal more than enough bases while maintaining a strong batting average. The risk is always slightly higher with a less proven hitter, but everything in the profile suggests that it is safe to draft Rodriguez in the early first round next year. The sky is the limit with this kid.
