Pirates Reacquire Josh Rodriguez

The Pirates today reacquired Josh Rodriguez from the Cleveland Indians for cash or a PTBNL. Rodriguez was the first overall pick in the Rule 5 draft this past offseason and appeared in 7 games for the Pirates getting one hit in 12 at-batsbefore being DFA'd and returned to the Indians on April 29 for $25,000 according to Rule 5 procedures.

Rodriguez played mostly the outfield for AAA Columbus when he went back to the Indians organization and also appears to have missed some time with an injury. He only appeared in 5 games at 3rd base and none at shortstop.

He didn't hit at all posting a .193/.270/.316 slash line for a .586 OPS in 65 plate appearances. Those numbers are very similar to the ones Brandon Wood and Josh Harrison have put up with the Pirates this season.
