Eyeing Sean Rodriguez

One player to watch in the middle infield is second baseman Sean Rodriguez, of the Angels organization.  He's tearing it up in Triple A with 21 HRs in 202 ABs.  The 24 year-old is slugging .644, with 6 SBs to boot.  It's not just a half-season of data - Rodriguez hit 21 HR with a .645 SLG in 248 Triple A at-bats last year.  Yes, that's 42 HR in 450 ABs.  It's the Pacific Coast League, but still.

Back on May 31st, Mike DiGiovanna of the L.A. Times wrote that Rodriguez is more likely to replace Howie Kendrick in the Angels' infield than Brandon Wood.  Kendrick has a .367 OBP since that article appeared, so he might be able to stave off a demotion.  But middle infield pop is a precious commodity in any fantasy league, so monitor Rodriguez.
