Pirates Reacquire Josh Rodriguez

The Pirates have reacquired former Rule 5 pick Josh Rodriguez for cash. He'll be assigned to Class AAA. I was a fan of acquiring Rodriguez the first time, so this is fine with me, but I wonder how they'll use him. He hasn't played much this year, and Chase D'Arnaud is Indianapolis' regular shortstop. It looks like Rodriguez will be a backup. It's also likely that he'll see some time at second base in the meantime - Brian Friday has been Indianapolis' second baseman, and he hasn't hit a whole lot.
