Head coach Tim Corbin on Rodriguez: “CJ came into the fall training period and made himself visible by his knack for doing a lot of things well. He showed that he can catch and throw behind the plate, but also be an offensive presence. His maturity and adaptability with the bat against some of our better arms in the fall was impressive for a young kid.”
